Bulgaria to stage military drills near Macedonian border amid worsening refugee crisis

Bulgaria will stage military drills near the Macedonian border as a “preventative” measure, the nation’s defense ministry says. It comes as the country’s neighbors face an influx of migrants trying to make their way to the EU’s borderless Schengen zone.

“The situation in the neighboring states of Macedonia, Greece and Serbia is quite complicated and we have to react preventively,” Defense Ministry chief of staff Valeria Kardashevska told Reuters.
