Bulgarian peasants, by analogy with Russian vodka "Putinka" called the traditional fruit brandy "Borisovka" in honor of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov , who does not allow Parliament to raise taxes on alcoholic beverages. This was announced yesterday.

A month ago, the Bulgarian deputies retreated under the pressure of society, and abandoned plans to raise taxes on alcoholic beverages, which can put an end to the old tradition of making homemade wine and brandy. But on Wednesday, the special budget committee again made a proposal to raise taxes from 2010.   However, Prime Minister, who has a black belt in karate, managed to persuade lawmakers to abandon the plan, emphasizes the agency.

"We must protect the ordinary people who spend their free time in   trampling the  grapes" - he said.
