Clashes between police and protesters and numerous arrests marked the second day of mass protests in Bulgaria, which are backed by President Rumen Radev. Protesters demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and chief prosecutor Ivan Gechev, accusing them of corruption and dependence on criminal groups.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that the protest came in response to a raid on the president’s offices on July 9 when the prosecution arrested two of Radev's advisors. Many saw this move as an attempt to silence Radev the day after he insisted on an investigation into state security services employees who were sent to guard the villa of controversial politician Ahmed Dogan.

Tens of thousands of people gathered in the second day of protests in Sofia on July 10 to defend the presidency from attack by the prosecution, which protesters and opposition claimed was an attack against Bulgarian statehood as personalised by the presidential institution.
