„Borisov stands out as a pillar of meaning. We see that as he is exiting power, the tidiness of Bulgaria's political world begins falling apart... He is like a contemporary Kashpirovsky of politics, capable of making a simple narrative, understandable to voters, out of the many pieces of Bulgaria's political world.”
“Using one logic, he can clean around with a shovel, while using another he can talk with Ms [Angela] Merkel.”
Bulgarian political scientist Strahil Deliyski comments on outgoing Prime Minister Boyko Borisov's presence on the political arena. Deliyski draws a parallel between Borisov and Anatoly Kashpirovsky, an inconic Russian psychotherapist of Ukrainian origin who was immensely popular across the Soviet Bloc for practicing mass healing and hypnosis.
