Bulgaria's Interior Minister Tsvetlin Yovchev said authorities are preparing for a new wave of refugees in spring. 

“I hope it won't be as big as the previous one,” Yovchev said after a visit to one of the refugee centers in Sofia with EU Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom. “We must communicate with those people, i.e. they must start learning Bulgarian. Then we must take them out of the refugee centers, integrate them and encourage them to find jobs.”

According to Yovchev, the state must create policies, which will guarantee that the integration process is sustainable. 

At a press conference earlier Malmstrom said that the situation with the refugees in Bulgaria remains complicated, but the new steps the country is taking to improving it, are commendable.
