It is not difficult for a mayor to catch the disease in the numerous contacts that our work requires. I believe I will fight the virus. Today, more than ever, I call on the people of Ruse to follow the safety measures and the prescriptions of the doctors. "

Тази трудна за мен година очевидно е отслабила имунната ми система и днес научих, че ще трябва да се преборя с COVID-19....
