Bulgarian activists already said it two years ago: the entry of Bulgaria into the Schengen area would cause the arrival of a large number of refugees, which would lead to violent reactions from the extreme right. In fact, we will not have to wait entry into the Schengen area, the arrival of a few thousand Syrians was enough.
On the one hand, a government weakened by protests and social movements, government in which the extreme-right-wing Ataka party is involved. And the increase in xenophobic speaches by ministers and the construction of a fence along the border with Turkey are obtained.
On the other hand, far-right groups ready for violence.
Or villagers hostile to the presence of foreigners perceived as dangerous beside them.
