Commenting article: Bulgaria Emerges as Tropical Destination in Ukrainian Ad

A poster advertising Bulgarian vacations to Ukrainian holidaymakers has depicted Bulgaria as a tropical country, a Ukrainian news site reports.

The ad in question advertises bus tours from the Ukrainian city of Poltava to Bulgaria, picturing an black man climbing on a palm tree.

"Ukrainian advertisers are so creative and their sense is so deep that it can hardly be understood by the regular people," the Ukrainian news site "Poltavshtina" commented on the ad Monday, as cited by the Bulgarian news agency Focus.

Well, we do have "kind of" palm trees and some people with dark skins, but not like those illustrated. Obviously the Ukraine do not have any trade description laws. They will have a very rude awakening if they ever join the EU.
