"In some of these ghettos there is no state. Restoring statehood comes through certain actions. If being poor allow one to beat up others, what will happen to pensioners."

Bulgaria's Health Minister Petar Moskov defending his move to keep ambulances away from "unsafe" neighborhoods.

"Roma neighborhoods are not enclaves. In enclaves no  laws are in force... In Roma neighborhoods there is anomy of which nobody wants to talk and take a stance. It is much more important to us to have established the systemic reasons leading to this situation."

Lili Makaveeva from the Association Integro commenting on Moskov's remarks.
