Bulgaria: Today's Quote: Bulgaria and Migrants Photo by BGNES

"Our population scared off the migrants. Authorities were trying to behave like Europeans, but with people emanating such hatred this tsunami [the migrant influx] went around Bulgaria. They preferred to go via Macedonia ans Serbia and the reason is that we forged a bad image of ourselves in their eyes. We don't react to this like Europeans."

Andrey Raychev, co-owner of Gallup International - Bulgaria polling agency, has his own idea about why the flow of migrants bound for Germany goes via Macedonia and Serbia and not via Bulgaria.

Bulgaria is attempting to keep migrants out by building a fence along its border with Turkey. Only a relatively small number of migrants try to reach the west through Bulgaria, most preferring the route running from Turkey to Hungary via Greece, Macedonia and Serbia.

They can't go through Bulgaria because the wall in Thrace can't be breached like those worthless ones built in Hungary & Macedonia. Tbh we need israeli-type walls with guard towers n stuff. Too many un-employed, give them guard duty, protect their country against the islamic hordes!
