The Parliament of Macedonia of the former Yugoslavia, adopted by a
qualified majority a constitutional amendment authorizing the Republic to
change its name and to authorize it to apply for membership of Nato and the
European Union.

Only three months ago, on 14 July, the government of the Macedonian Prime
Minister Zoran Zaev organized a grand national festival to celebrate the
opening of the negotiations for incorporating the Republic of Macedonia
into Nato. However its citizens boycotted the 14 free concerts organized
all over the whole country and none of them took place.

Less than four weeks ago, on 30 September, 63.09% of the Macedonian voters
abstained from casting their vote in the referendum on name-change. This
name change was negotiated by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and Greek Prime
Minister Alexis Tsipras. Due to the very low percentage of voter turn
out, the National Electoral Commission had to cancel the results of the

Washington and the EU then decided to use the Macedonian Parliament to
mock the will of the voters.

The US ambassador in Macedonia was Jess L. Baily (who supervised Turkey’s
participation in the wars against Libya and Syria) and in Greece, Geoffrey
R. Pyatt (who organized the Maiden Square Putsch in 2014 and the
fragmentation of the Orthodox Church in 20180. They immediately began an
operation to buy MP votes. Mathew Palmer, Head of the Balkans in the US
State Department was sent to support the campaign to buy up votes.

The judicial proceedings initiated against 8 MPs from the Opposition were
abruptly cancelled and those that had been detained were set free. “Agent
Tesla” handed over 25 000 dollars to each of them to cooperate with
Washington and to cast the vote Washington would want. This they did.
Considered traitors to the Motherland, the political parties to which they
had belonged decided to expel them.

The US ambassador Jess Baily and the vice-assistant of the Secretary of
State were present at the Macedonian Parliament during the debate and
subsequent vote by the MPs.

Immediately after the vote in Parliament, the Minister of Home Affairs
announced that it had decided to grant special personal protection to the
MPs who voted for Macedonia’s name change and who supported the
incorporation of the Republic into Nato and the European Union.

Thus Macedonia of the ex-Yugoslavia enters into the “camp of democracy”

Meanwhile, in Athens, the Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Kotzias,
has just presented his resignation.
