Interview

Julian Popov

Bulgarian, European, mostly on the road. Writer,  storyteller, a believer in democratic unity, former Bulgarian minister, and campaigner for European prosperity.

Julian, what is your personal view of Europe?

Europe is the land of freedom, history, diversity, and prosperity. We have to keep her that way with optimism and openness.

In your opinion, what does Europe mean for your home country, Bulgaria?

Hope.

Is there anything else you want to say about Europe?

Europe puzzles many people mostly because Europe is not ideological and doesn’t present itself with a single slogan, leader or budget. That sometimes makes her vulnerable to propaganda attacks, nationalistic anger or dictators’ jealousy. We should resist all that and feel more comfortable with what we are.

Europe is the land of freedom, history, diversity, and prosperity.
