The fight against domestic violence is a top priority, and society expects clear solutions and measures to be put in place to enhance prevention and victim protection, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Mariya Gabriel said here on Wednesday. Gabriel was speaking at the inaugural meeting of the National Council for Prevention and Protection from Domestic Violence, which she chairs.

"Anyone can become a victim of violence, regardless of their gender, age, economic status, educational background, or social standing, and that is why targeted action on prevention and protection is needed," she said.
