Geography Now! Rep. of North Macedonia

Geography Now! Rep. of North Macedonia

Alright guys! This is going to be
the most controversial video I’ve made since Armenia and Azerbaijan. As you know, we follow the alphabetical
English list of countries in the UN. That being said, as the UN, EU, European Council, and NATO
all give the same title for this country. This episode is going to go under ‘F’ for
“Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”. However, I will refer to this country as the Republic of Macedonia as over 130 countries call it that on their own terms, and because it’s shorter and easier to say. Okay? Are we good? Cool? ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ It’s time to learn geography! ♫ NOW! Hey everyone, I’m your host Barby. For those of you who know nothing about this country
or why I’m trying to take so many precautions. Basically all you have to know is that in almost every aspect, this place is
actually pretty plain, simple and chill. It’s just the name that starts all the drama. You might be wondering why.
Well, we will explain in a bit But first, let’s talk about where it is. So, the Republic of Macedonia– Am I good? I know you don’t like it but
can you just at least maybe tolerate it if I just use this title for the video
for abbreviating purposes? Greece: No problem. Please, just continue your lesson. Thank you. So, the Republic of Macedonia is kind of like a
country that got mixed up, tossed around flipped, turned upside down and I’d like to take a moment just sitting right here to tell you how this country became a place with such an affair. OH! High five! First of all, the country is landlocked and located in the Balkan Peninsula of Southeast Europe, surrounded by Bulgaria, Greece, Albania and depending on which side of the
sovereignty debate you stand on, Kosovo and Serbia. Guys, it’s the Balkans, Europe’s
most dysfunctional family. The country is divided into 9 regions with the capital Skopje located in the
North central part of the country where a quarter of the entire population lives. It’s also the historical birthplace of Mother Teresa and in the city square it has a statue of Alexander the Great. Greece: Look, they immortalized
Alexander the Great, in their land. Oh, and they named their airport after him too. Greece: … The country only has two main civilian airports: Skopje Alexander the Great International and Ohrid St. Paul the Apostle International,
by Lake Ohrid. Ohrid is a popular tourist and vacation spot, however, the second and third largest cities are Bitola, Kumanovo in the Northeast of Skopje. The E-75 highway is the longest and busiest road that traverses the entire country North to South. Fun little side note! In the Republic of Macedonia, the sidewalks are
actually used for both walking and parking. To this day, the legacy of the Ottoman
times is well preserved in places like the Gazi Hajdar Kadi Mosque in Bitola. Tetovo is kinda like the Albanian capital of the country as it has the highest Albanian population in the country, adorned with geometric and floral motifs all over. In the west, we reach the strange
town/micronation of Vevčani which declared itself its own republic and
even has its own currency called the linčnik. Now, if there’s any structure that just straight-up dominates the landscape though, it would have to be monasteries,
churches, fortresses and mosques. I did four like this, that’s weird. This is how I made a four. Ones, like St. John the baptist monastery, which supposedly has the forearm of St. John the baptist embellished with extremely intricate wood carvings in the interior. The Kale fortress in Skopje and the Tsar
Samuel fortress in Ohrid stick out too. So, those are some of the most noticeable sites,
but you’re probably still wondering “Okay, that’s nice but what does any of this have
to do with the country’s controversial name?” We’ll explain that in just a little bit
in the demographics section, but first let’s slowly keep you distracted
from the inevitable rage fest by telling you more about the pretty
mountains and rivers and stuff… All right, let’s have one more round
of plain objective fact reporting before the gray zone of doom
comes up in the next section. In the simplest way I can put this, the country is about 80% mountainous and basically split in half by the longest river, the Vardar that flows North
to South and emptying in the Aegean Sea. On the west of the river you have the Dinaric Alps with the tallest peak Mt. Korab along the border of Albania. The general South Balkan region that the country lies on sits on the subduction zone between the European and African plates
cut right in the Mediterranean. Therefore, the Republic of Macedonia is subject
to some earthquake activity every so often. The Republic of Macedonia is famous for
two things: tobacco, and opium. The opium here is the national treasure which has disputably the highest quality in the world, with about 14 morphine units per specimen. Rep. of Macedonia: Yeah, sorry Afghanistan.
Hang in there though, you’re doing good. The crop is mostly used for pharmaceuticals
and is transported all over Europe. There is also the Peshna cave in Makedonski Brod
which is famous for looking like Helm’s deep in Lord of the Rings. Close by Skopje, you can’t miss
the Matka valley with the canyons. Of course, the price trophy of the
country would have to be Lake Ohrid. One of the oldest and deepest lakes in Europe
with over 200 different endemic species. Including the Ohrid trout which is
one of the national animals. Some national dishes include meat pie and Ajvar relish made of crushed bell peppers and garlic. Sometimes referred as vegetable caviar. Even though sometimes Serbians
will say that they created it. And that’s about it! Stay tuned. France is coming up next! Oh yeah… Uh, how did this country get their whole
name controversy dispute thing, right ah. Oh boy, well uh… Here comes the train wreck. I’ll do my best. Transition? Oh boy… This is going to be just dandy.
No matter what I say in any angle in this section. Someone is going to disagree
and throw sharp objects at me. But, this is my job… This is the life I chose… Come on Barby, you can do this! Hey! Uh… We haven’t done a Bob Saget joke in a while. Duh, I’m Bob Saget. I wear dad pants
and I once sat on a pizza. Okay, first of all. The country has about
2 million people and was the only former Yugoslav republic to gain
independence without any bloodshed. About 65% of the nation identifies as ethnically Macedonian and a quarter are Albanians and rest are made up of groups like
Turks, Romanis, Serbs and Bosniaks. The currency is also the Macedonian Denar,
they use the ‘C’, ‘E’, ‘F’ type outlets and they drive on the right side of the road. Now, let’s begin the discussion… First of all, what exactly are some distinguishing
traits of people that identify as “Macedonian”? Well, for starters, just like we
explained in the Bulgaria episode. They have Slavic roots and speak a Slavic based language that is very similar to Bulgarian. Most people in both countries can
understand each other just fine, and many have relatives and family
that live in each other’s countries. The people of this country have been tossed around
over and over again in the past millennia, and it wasn’t until the Balkan wars
that things really got cracking. For those of you who don’t know, the Balkan
wars basically just went like this: – Round 1 – Oh no, we don’t like the Ottomans. Let’s fight them, yeah… – Round 2 – Bulgaria: What the?! We had an agreement, you screwed it all up. You’re all dead! And that’s about it. Essentially the area that takes up the parameters of modern-day Republic of Macedonia were sort of the product of Yugoslavia after World War II. First, they were called Vardar Banovina and then it became the Socialist Republic of Macedonia. To this day, Macedonians claim that they are descendants of Alexander the Great and the ancient Macedonians that were mixed
in with the Slavic tribes that migrated into the area in the 6th century AD. Then, in 1991 Yugoslavia broke up and that was when the whole modern mess with Greece really heated up. I mean, it was already kind of heated before
that but this just made things a lot worse. To this day, Greece deliberately opposes
the usage of the title “Macedonia” as they claim the name is historically
inseparable from Greek heritage and they are the only ones that have the right
to use the name, let alone the symbols. And shortly after they said that, the Republic of Macedonia started to use the… symbols. Yeah, that didn’t really help the conflict. One thing that both Greeks and Macedonians can
agree on is that historically, there was a region called Macedonia that expanded under Alexander
the Great all the way from the Balkans to India. Where they disagree on is who the Macedonians
and Alexander the Great really were, which… I’m going to try my best, kind of went like this: Greece: You guys are constructing a narrative
and appropriating our heritage and symbols and it all started with Tito.
Macedonia is an inherently Greek title and you guys are not Greek,
let alone Hellenistic in any way. Rep. of Macedonia: Uh, we never claimed to be
Greek and neither was Alexander the Great. He was ethnically Macedonian which was a
separate distinct group apart from the Greeks with mixed in with our Slavic forefathers
after they arrived centuries later. Greece: Dude, the Macedonians were Greeks.
They spoke Greek, they had the same culture, they worshiped the same gods, they spread
the Greek language across the empire, Alexander the Great was taught by Aristotle.
They were Greek! Rep. of Macedonia: Yeah, he spoke Greek, he also
spoke Persian and a ton of other languages, and if they were Greek, why would they go to
war with ton of other Greek cities so often? He spoke the original Macedonian
language first, and then propagated the Greek culture as it was seen as advantageous. Greece: That’s just a lie your leaders have told you to set up footing for future claims against Greek territory. Macedonia has been the name of our
North region for over 3000 years with real Greek Macedonians today living in that area. Rep. of Macedonia: Huh, yeah, that totally
explains the actions of Ioannis Metaxas in 1913. Greece: I knew you would bring that up. Look, I know that was tragic and horrible but it’s completely irrelevant to the actual documented, archaeologically corroborated, historical facts that you can’t deny. Rep. of Macedonia: Huh, then clearly
you need a history lesson. Greece: NO, YOU DO! Rep. of Macedonia: YOU DO! Greece: YOU DO! Bulgaria: So uh guys, the Pirin region… Rep. of Macedonia: AAAAA! Disclaimer: this is pretty much just what the governments and radical nationalists say. Most of the general Greek and Macedonian populations don’t really care too much about this issue. To this day, the UN, EU, European Council have all somewhat cited with Greece agreeing to appoint the title “Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” Many Greek and Macedonian politicians have said
that they would maybe be willing to settle on a new compound country name that deliberately distinguishes the country apart from the word Macedonia. Some suggestions include: Slavo-Macedonia,
Upper-Macedonia or Northern-Macedonia. But for now, the one that kind of unofficially
stands at a somewhat not perfect but not too rage inciting national title is
“The Republic of Macedonia”. So anyway! Macedonians love wrestling and handball. Wrestler Saban Trstena being considered a national icon as he won a gold metal in 1984. The men’s handball league made four appearances in the World Championships. Some notable Macedonians throughout history include: poets Blaze Koneski, Kole Nedelkovski, painter Petar Manzev, pianist Simon Trpčeski, Academy Award nominated director Milčo Mančevski. – I know, “ski, ski, ski, ski, ski” – And of course, even though she was ethnically Albanian, Mother Teresa was born in Skopje. All right, I think it’s time to move on.
Let’s jump into diplomacy. Well, as you can probably guess. The Republic of Macedonia is kind of surrounded by neighbors that have some kind of issue with them. The general stereotype is that Serbia doesn’t recognize their church, Bulgarians don’t recognize their sovereignty, Albanians don’t recognize the
Western border and Greece… Yeah, you can kind of already guess. However, it’s the 21st century
and the millennial generation really doesn’t care too much
about their grandparents’ drama. Borders are totally open. People travel back and forth between these countries and trade is consistent as long as you’ve got a good
bottle of Balkan wine to share. Serbians are generally close as their split from the republic was the only one without bloodshed. Even though some political points are disputed,
they’re still cool. And Bulgaria is like the country where the Republic of Macedonia kind of sneaks into
the EU through a loophole in the passport system. In which you can totally qualify if you have
family in Bulgaria, which many Macedonians do. Turkey still gets along nicely with them,
however it’s been favoring Albania and Kosovo a little bit more these days. Their best friends however, and out of all
the Macedonian geograpeeps I asked, more or less, most of them agreed that Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina are probably their closest allies. These *three countries all share a deep history of being former Yugoslav republic states that go way back. Have you ever had friends that you made while you were all being punished for something at the same time? Yeah, that’s kind of how it is with these guys. They’ve seen so much struggle and
hardship together and still managed to smile back at each other the entire time. Brandon: It’s like Breakfast club! Yeah! It’s like Breakfast club. In conclusion: just saying the word
Macedonia incites a lot of opinions and frustrations with certain groups of people and I’m not going to pretend I have an answer to all of this. The Balkans will always be indescribably complicated. It’s just interesting how a simple name can
cause so much uproar. Names matter. Let that be a lesson for you today. Restez à l’écoute. France sera le prochain!
[Stay tuned. France is coming up next!]

  1. Hey guys so UPDATE! As of Jan 25 2019 the Greek Parliament voted 153-146 (1 abstained) in favor of accepting the new name of "North Macedonia" for this country. Many Greek citizens are opposed to this move but for what's it's worth this means diplomatic actions can move forward after nearly 3 decades of dispute. Let's see what happens.

  2. Macedonians: We love Greece! I love the culture, the mythology, the landmarks, the gyros and everybody is nice there!

    Greeks: The people of fake Macedonia are evil! They stole our history and our region's name (while trying to hide the fact that Greece took a huge part from Macedonia to stop one of the Balkan Wars)


  4. Ilirida is Albania
    The rest of FYROM can either be Bulgarian or Greek I don‘t care

  5. Sorry but Macedonia is just confused Bulgaria…

    they have been trying to find a culture that’s just theirs but they can’t so they take bits from others and call it their own

    Don’t comment back cause idc

  6. Our, our… What a mess do we have here.
    We as Sultan of Sultans Safiye Sultan can confirm these gafils were bulgarians in our times. Now they want to be "macedonians"? Hahahahaha…

  7. Three thousands of devils! These illiterate slavs dont know who we are. How ignorant! Well… they dont know who they are. Very confused gafils.

  8. These days I was watching Magnificent Century: Kosem. There was a special case… a total b!tch that thinks she is the center of the universe and refers to herself as "we" all the time. In comments some people were writing from her name. It was very funny. So here you have her: Safiye Sultan Hazretleri resurrected to troll Skopjans. Nothing to do with Daenerys. Enjoy! =D

  9. I'm Macedonian and I don't really care Alexander the great is Greek back then Macedonia was Hellenic

  10. Although your propaganda is one of the most well-organized in history, so far it has achieved almost ZERO results. Nobody BUT YOU believes that your people are actually descendants of the ancient macedonians. And by nobody, I mean NOBODY. Literally.

    And this is happening for two reasons.

    First reason is that history is OVERWHELMINGLY in favour of the Greeks. Historical sources,facts and knowledge in general,archaelogical findings, traditions, culture etc, are in favour of Greeks. ALL OF THEM.

    Second reason is that much as you're trying, you can't find evidence about your claims. Not a single piece of it. Your claims are based upon ASSUMPTIONS and ONLY. Some nebulous "scientific works" that they can be disputed in a nanosecond, even by a ten year old schoolgirl. I myself on these videos literally begging you for some evidence, and so far you haven't achieve to provide not a piece of it. To me, and to the world.

    That's why Greeks don't give a s**t about all that. And that's why you'll never achieve your goal.

    P.S: IMHO, your biggest "enemies" in your effort are not Greeks. Greeks can only say MACEDONIA IS GREEK and that's all, because they know that this is the case. It's like saying that THE SUN RISES IN THE EAST. They know it, you know it, everybody knows it and that's it. End of story.

    Therefore, I believe that your biggest "enemies" are BULGARIANS. Cause bulgarians do the exact opposite propaganda and it's as well-organized as yours. And from my perspective (as neutral…) it makes MUCH MORE SENSE than yours. And that's a FACT.

    P.S 2: On top of that of course, there's another problem for you. Cause it is obvious to me that so far, you haven't achieve to persuade even your own compatriots about the historical accuracy of your claimings. In other words, it seems to me that not all skopjedonians are in the same page on that matter when Greeks on the other side, ARE in the most SOLID way… Am I wrong?

  11. Няма какво да се лъжем, македония не е имало и няма и сега. Всичко е крадена история и лъжи.

  12. Michael's father took him to Afganistan when he was a child. Now he thinks all fathers are like his father. Wash your f…ng mouth Michael. Our fathers arent immoral pedophiles like you and your father.

  13. This little creature who still doesn't know what he is, because his mother had born him in Solun while working as a toilet cleaner by day, and at night she prostituted herself in the dark streets of the city. So KANAK*doesn't know who his father is and neither what nationality is he. His mother [email protected] with him, and told him he was [email protected], but in fact he is a Kurd from Iraq who was working at that time as a carrier to the dock in Solun and every night he [email protected] *ANANI of KANAK*on the smelly *DALGA and she happened to give birth to that little junk she had never planned.

  14. Even Our cat Elizabeth The Great worth more than brainwashed thieves from Skopje vilayet. Huh! bulgarians wannabe macedonians.

  15. I am happy for N. Macedonia finally solving the name issue, greetings from Croatia 🇭🇷🇲🇰

    ΗΡΟΔΟΤΟΣ [9.45.2] αὐτός τε γὰρ Ἕλλην γένος εἰμὶ τὠρχαῖον, καὶ ἀντ᾽ ἐλευθέρης δεδουλωμένην οὐκ ἂν ἐθέλοιμι ὁρᾶν τὴν Ἑλλάδα.

  17. They' are brainwashed from Tito period. They arrived in balkans 7 a.c meaning 1000 year's after Alexander the Great dynasty. Their language is Cirillik and given to them from Byzantium priests kyrilos and Methodius. The first archeological prooves about slavic races are from Byzantium papirus. Alexander the Great and his father philipos was lived thousands year's before slavic races arrived in balkans. Our prooves about Macedonian kingdom of great Alexander are in our museums and in Pella outside from salonika. All ancient Macedonian statues , coin's,papirus etc are written in ancient hellenic language. They are just a fake nation who don't know his identity. Their DNA is Bulgarian and their Language is very similar with Bulgarian. The vergina sunn they have in their flag is a joke!! Vergina sunn symbol used from ancient Macedonian Hellenic kingdom and every sun light was symbol from ancient hellenic hero's and god's. Alexander the Great he was believed had the Hercules blood in his veins. He was believed in 12 ancient Greek gods and he was allowed join to olimpic game's. No-one non hellenic allowed to join in this athletic game's !! His father name philipos is a ancient hellenic name and means friend with horses , philos= friend , ipos =horse in our ancient language. Horse of great Alexander called vukefalas meaning in hellenic language big head . They are just a Circus nation and they born because big powers like USA wanted cutting the ex yougosvavia as a nation. Off course for their own benefits. But history goes back from Stalin and Russia plus Tito the ex leader of yougosvavia. Tito was the puppet and Russia had the dream of big Bulgaria because in cold war Bulgaria controlled from Russia. So Russia give the orders and the plan to Tito make a good brainwash the people from vardaska make them believe are original Macedonians, the plan was Bulgaria graze our original HELLENIC MACEDONIA ,our legasy ,land . But now their fake propaganda is over. There is only one territory as Macedonia and this is ours

  18. That meat pie is the Greek version of Armenian kiliklian lahmacun, (you can try some amazing lahmacun at arts bakery in Glendale)

  19. Macedonian is not a thing, Greece is simply correct however they are all babies when it comes to the name, Macedonia is just being annoying

  20. Daenerys wins Best Quote Award 2019 for: "Charles Darwin would be proud of you skopjedonian. A living prove of his theory." comment. =P

  21. Its official name is Vilayet of Skopje and Monastir! Who dared to disrupt the will of Our Excellence? What "macedonians"? Are you kidding Us? They are more bulgarians than bulgarians.

  22. It's ridiculous that if it were not for the fact that Northern Macedonia exists, the Greeks themselves would push themselfs onto "this" state with the monuments of Alexander the Great and they would shout that "even if the population has shifted, it should commemorate the culture of the previous inhabitants of this land".
    Today's Slavonic Macedonians did not come to empty lands, there were still Greek Macedonians and they were not murdered they were assimilated by new Slavic majority, so in the veins of Slavonic Macedonians also a drop of Ancient Greek blood flows.
    Macedonians have a problem with the fact that their language is too similar to Bulgarian, maybe have bilingual signs, learn Greek as a third language (English second) and introduce Greek loan-words to your language.
    The Greeks are poor, Macedonia is even poorer, maybe invest a little money you have in cheaper Macedonia and bring profits back to Greece, both sides gain.

    Simply get together and celebrate the culture of your LAND.

  23. Can we not fight ? I'm Greek and I want this bullying to stop. They have the name accept it and treat them with respect. Everytime we come across each other we have to argue this ? It's disgusting.

    We have to nurture and support each other not tear each other down.

  24. Typical Greek- Fyrom fight=
    Greek points out historical facts with proofs
    Fyrom guy just doesnt accept it and says he is macedonian…

  25. 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷 MACEDONIA 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷
    🇲🇰🇲🇰🇲🇰 MONKEYDONIA 🇲🇰🇲🇰🇲🇰

  26. We like Macedonia here in Bosnia. They are so nice people and they were in same country with us.

  27. Visit Real Macedonian historic capitals, macedonian sea, M.Coastline, M.Port, Mount Olympus, visit FREE "MΑΚΕΔΟΝΙΑ" = visit Greece !!!!

  28. It’s a shame that everyone talks only about the disputed name in the comments. It’s a beautiful country and so many great things in it are worth focusing on. Not just hatred and insults. 🙄 from both sides btw. Smh

  29. Everything about you is awesome! You’re videos are great, unbiased, hilarious, and informative. And you yourself are very likeable. Your Cuba video was well made and is of course my favorite (I’m Cuban American and everything you said is accurate) One of the pinnacle YouTube channels out there. Keep doing great work.

  30. Freedom for Macedonia! Macedonia on Macedonians! Greetings from Bulgaria братя! 🇧🇬❤🇲🇰 Обичаме ви!

  31. First of all no one has the right to call someone fake. Each country is beautiful on its own and N. Macedonia as well. We have our own language, tradition and culture and history. Back in the day when the Balkans were under the Ottoman Empire, the countries were split and thats why there are a lot of questions opened. Secondly, the languages indeed are similar, and there is a part of N. Macedonia which has the dialect close to Bulgarian and they can understand each other, but the other parts not really. I sure can understand a few things here and there, but not everything, just like i am able to understand Serbian and Croatian. And surely that doesnt give the right to anyone to call N. Macedonia (or any other country) fake or that we have identity crisis. We love our country and the people are quite nice and friendly. You dont have to be rude about it just because you have your own opinion. Im not trying to change anyones mind, just kindly asking everyone to be nice. Thank you very much.

  32. Alexander the Great came from Illyrian/Macedonian ancestry and the Macedonians themselves were kin tribes of Illyrians and even Thracians. This is the first and biggest reason why Alexander and the Macedonians were considered as non-Hellenic 'barbarians'. This is told by numerous ancient historians before all the modern academic fallacies that certain people have lobbied through millions of dollars in bribery to fit the modern corrupt political narratives.

  33. To all people with poor knowledge about Balkan history…

    Macedonian is a regional name of a person who lives in a region/district called Macedonia, but not nationality of origin!

    Example: Bavarian is called a person from district/region Bavaria, but German by origin/nationality!

    All Slavic people who have lived in the Macedonian region for decades are simply pure Bulgarians by origin!

    For more info, please read only worldwide official recognised sources!

    PS: Everything else is just some vile lies and propaganda of the purest kind!

  34. If Alexander the Great was alive,
    𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙡𝙖𝙪𝙜𝙝 𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨.

  35. Firstly. .Philipus φίλος (friend) ίππος (horse) Greek name Father of Alexander and Olympia from the greek mountain Olympus was from Epirus…The real name of Olympia was Polixeni which means very hospital in greek…The name olympia gave to her because of the Philipus victory at the Olympic games…Oh yeah to take part at the Olympic games should be Greek…There was a commission and they allowed Philipus to take part because he was Greek..Second…Alexander made his campaign to revenge the destroy of Greej cities…His father United all the Greek kingdoms…Slavs say that he fought with Greeks…All the Greek cities fought each other…Sparta Athens Corinth …After the victory of the Granic river Alexander sent 300 shields in athens and he wrote Alexander if Philipus and Greeks…Not macedonians…His FATHER was Greek and his mother also.. But he was Slav…haha…Skopjan is a poor country with Albanians and gupsies..They need a name to survive because they know if Greece had good politicians and no traitors…In 2 hours would be a Greek region

  36. To my beloved TurcoScopianoglou Bastardovskis clown compatriots:

    We decided to call not only
    Alexander's sister Thessalloniki as solun
    But also
    Macedonian king Amyntas as Surovich.

    That's why we call AMYNTAIO town as SUROVICHEVO

    Are you ready for the bumby dumby 5 monkeys dance now?
    straight from the heart of shutkaland dedicated ….. 😉

  37. So ok north macedonians accepted that ancient greece and therefore the greek macedonian empire had nothing to do with them, and we agree that since macedonia was originally a place much larger than the greek macedonia if you guys want to be called north macedonia its aright. Now that this matter of PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE has ended can we please get on with our lives and maybe get to business or something? Thanks

  38. 24/7
    Early mornings. Late nights.
    Waking up & falling asleep.
    Every day.
    Refers to …….see below……..⬇️

  39. I am Macedonian and I think the way that you explained the beef between Macedonia and Greece was hilarious. Side note still not used to this name change of my country🇲🇰

  40. Macedonia (Pela/Alexandre The Great) is Greece !
    Vardaska is Serbia ! Kick out nato and EU !
    Kosovo and Vardaska albanian Should be Kicked out and Go live in albania!
    Vardaska turks Should be Kicked out and Go live in turkey !

  41. Skopjans (monkeydonia) Have the same language with serbians bulgarians Croatians ….Greeks speak the same language with Alexander the Great…Skopjans alphabet is Kyrillos and methodios Greek is the same that Alexander uses to write…Skopjans have slavs Heroes Greeks have Achilles and Alexander the great best hero was Achilles…Prime minister of Skopjans name is Zoran…Who ancient Macedonian had the name Zoran? Prime minister of Greece is Alexandros..until 1900 Skopjans had the identity of yugoslavs…Macedons always identity was Greek…Skopjans (monkeydonia) is a weak country…without stealing a name and a history they couldn't survive…That's why they need the name the NATO and the European union…Because without them Albanians will kill them all and Skopje will be Albanian region

  42. Macedonian nationality was nothing more than a communist invention which had the purpose of serving Tito's geostrategic plans. In case of a communist victory in the Greek civil war,he could use that name as a leverage for the territorial expansion of his new state (SFR Yugoslavia) from adriatic to aegean sea. The plan of course failed, but the name remained, mostly because it could be used against the bulgarian influence in the southernmost part of his state where of course, the population was mostly bulgarian in pre-communist times.

    Furthermore,it is totally clear that no mention of macedonians as a DISTINCT ETHNOLOGICAL GROUP exists in any official text from before that time (1945).
    Neither the treaty of Berlin, nor the treaty of San Stefano (1878) make any reference to such concept.

    The official ottoman census of 1905 gives figures for the populations of Greeks, Bulgarians and Serbians in the vilayets of Thessaloniki and Monastir where the Greeks were in the majority,but contains no reference to "macedonians" at all, for the simple reason that NONE OF THOSE QUESTIONED STATED SUCH DESCENT.



  43. DAESERUS TRAUMA THE KURDISH PARROT steadily shiting like an old parrot, BLA BLA BLA
    What not he will do for citizenship?

  44. Now is the moment for all brainwashed zombies to take a proper shower and to see in the mirror how they look like…

  48. Alexander the Great last word…《Τω κρατίστω》….translate monkeydonians slavs gypsies…Hahahah ….Why do we still discuss about Macedonia?

  49. Skopje is a fake country which until 1970 the called and feel Yugoslavs…Then they saw that they cannot survive without a strong name and the decided to steal the greek name of Macedonia…Then everybody used to laugh with this but over the years Greeks traitor politicians gave them the name and today skopje slavic Albanian gypsies people think that they are sons of Alexander…Oh my God the slavs want to be macedons…They call thessaloniki soon…hahaha there are ancient letters with the name thessaloniki…They are poor and they do not educate their people that's why you ll see slavs in the comments who they defend that they are macedons

  50. Sure thing, 8:12 this region is originally Macedonian, less than 100 years ago Brittan ripped it off Macedonia and gave it to Greece after the Ottoman empire fell, Of course, the greeks are saying it's theirs and they had it for thousands of years XD, and the Greeks saying that Aleksandar the Great was greek because of culture and language, I can't blame them for this confusion, to be honest, these countries are neighbors, their art, language and culture were similar (ancient Macedonians), Similar, not the same, but the Slavs mixed, they are far too different, that's just the way it is, look it up, I don't know where people get the same assumption as the greeks.

  51. 'Ευγνωμονώ τοίς θεοίς ότι εγεννήθειν Έλλην.. Thank the gods to have been born Hellene.. The proof , the truth is in front of you skopians and everyone, Makedonia was, is and will be Hellenic until the end of history.. Accept the truth and don't try to be Hellenes because you can't.
