    One of Bulgaria’s top businessmen has called for Balkan countries to form a union to defend against a potential Turkish invasion of Europe.

    Vasil Vasilev said that the supposedly “tolerant” and “solidarity”-loving European Union (EU) could not be relied on to protect the Balkans if “hundreds of thousands of so-called refugees” from Turkey descend on them.

    The businessman and philanthropist recommended that Bulgaria form a union with other Balkan countries who would be threatened by Turkish moves to expand their territory and influence.

    He said: “These are mostly Bulgaria and Greece, as well as Serbia and Macedonia. They should form some kind of a union to stop the Turkish threat and this may be the most reliable thing we can count on.”

    Speaking in Sofia, the Vassilevi Brothers Foundation chairman said that “Bulgaria should not have any doubts that the Europeans will hand [the country] to Turkey.”
