Bulgaria and Romania are quite often paired up in European and regional powers' approach to the Balkans. They are said to be both wrapped in political, economic and social problems, but usually do not provoke a huge interest from EU politicians.
However, both countries seem to possess the strange capacity to rapidly turn into a hot topic as long as elections approach and fears of not doing enough to attract (or disperse) the populist vote loom in Europe.
Eight examples in reverse order (starting from the most innocent one) display either surprising overstatement or violation the rules of tolerance and political correctness. Some of the statements have even resulted insulting as coming by officials from states which, unlike Bulgaria and Romania, have often been commended for their political culture. Others just look like neighborly blunders....
Europe should be led by strong people with courage. One way to improve well being in Europe is to help it's own neighbors. Young people from Bulgaria and Rumania ( and not only from these 2) should have the opportunity in their own countries. Politician should think about stimulation of poor economies and bring capital to the country that need it.
Look at US for god sake!
God bless America......
i don't get it. All of the countries the author mentions have worse language compared to Bulgaria, uglier nature compared to Bulgaria, uglier women compared to bulgaria and have far shorter history than bulgaria? Why are they complaining - an interesting question.
