“Unification, let it be Union!” – with these words, on September 6, 1885, the Governor-General of Eastern Rumelia, Gavrail Krastevich, surrendered without resistance, and in this way the Union of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia became a fact. This is what the Deputy Prime Minister wrote on Facebook with European funds Atanas PekanovAtanas Pekanov is an economist at the Austrian Institute for Economic Research (WIFO), in Vienna, on the occasion of today’s holiday.
“Years after that memorable September 6, we are once again facing severe challenges. Today, drawing not only pride, but also a bright example from history, we must find in ourselves the necessary strength and will to fight together for what unites us – the idea of a united and prosperous Bulgaria,” he added.
And let us remember that the Union does not come for nothing or as a result of chance, but is the result of a clear idea, common efforts, purposeful work and refusal to accept injustice and injustice. Today, September 6, although different in nature, we face complex tasks that we must once again solve as a society – with maturity, patience and a desire for justice, Pekanov also wrote.
