Minister of Defense to appoint military guards on the Turkish border.

Krasimir Karakachanov, member of the United Patriots, MoD and Deputy PM announced that Bulgaria will be using military guards to protect it's south-eastern border. That was part of his interview with "Die Welt", where he expressed his extreme opinions regarding illegal immigration into the European Union which conformed with the so called "populists" in Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Karakachanov said that the border between Bulgaria and Turkey will be divided in 5 areas and a group of troops will be appointed to each of them. The entire personel used will be about 600 armed soldiers and special forces. Karakachanov criticized the EU's inability to effectlively prevent illegal immigration through the Mediterranean Sea. 

"We cannot accept anymore illegal mass immigration through Europe's borders" stated the MoD adamantly. "The EU and NATO should send their military missions to Italy and Greece to keep the Union's borders safe. Even by using military force, if they must."
The Deputy PM believes that most of the alleged refugees aren't running for their lives and are rather economic immigrants, looking for a shot at a better life in the "Rich West".

At the same time the Austrian government is sending troops to it's border with Italy, where migrants would allegedly try to hide under the bodywork of freight trains in order to get into the country. 
The chief inspector of the Police in Tirol claims that it's not  only about stopping immigrants but about protecting people's lives as well.
