What does renaming of Macedonia threaten with?


In front of Skopje the road to NATO and the EU opens: the Macedonian parliament approved renaming of the country. Whether it will put the end to a long-term dispute with Greece on the name of the Balkan republic? Vote at a session of parliament in Skopje, Macedonia. Photo: Tomislav Georgiev/Reuters the Macedonian parliament approved renaming of the country into Northern Macedonia. Thus, the end can be put to a long-term dispute with Greece on the name of the Balkan republic which coincides with the name of the historic northern Greek area. The Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras already congratulated the Macedonian colleague Zoran Zayev on adoption of the so-called Prespansky agreement signed between the countries last summer. Now in front of Skopje the road both to NATO, and to the European Union is open, the doctor of historical sciences Artem Ulunyan says: Artem Ulunyan the doctor of historical sciences "Greece nowadays will not oppose inclusion of Macedonia and in the European community, and in NATO. Thus, despite attempts of those who tried to use a so-called ethnic question in own purposes after all the majority supported the solution of the main problem — legitimation of the country. The question of the name of the country is first of all a problem of legitimation of the country in the system of the international relations because even in the UN it was not called Republic of Macedonia, it was called "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia". In general, Macedonia is divided between three states: it is Macedonia which received the name of Northern Macedonia now, it is so-called Vardarsky Macedonia, there is in Bulgaria, and the Aegean Macedonia. So there are three parts of one geographical space, and it would not be absolutely fair to call any country this general place name at once". Renaming of Macedonia will have serious consequences, the research associate of the Center for studying of modern Balkan crisis of Institute of Slavic studies of RAS Maria Tretyakova is sure: Maria Tretyakova the research associate of the Center for studying of modern Balkan crisis of Institute of Slavic studies of RAS "The international community just crushed the right of the whole people for self-determination, the will of the Macedonian people which obviously spoke on a referendum on September 30 that opposes these changes of the name is ignored. Process in which there were rough constitutional, democratic defects cannot be stable, cannot resolve an issue which he is allegedly called to solve in the long term. The Prespansky agreement set the purpose to close a historical Macedonian question first of all for the benefit of the countries, neighboring to the Republic Macedonia, in this case Greece. The question which is raised so, but not on a compromise between observance of interests of two countries, cannot propose the long-term stable solution. With this decision the Macedonian opposition, the Macedonian president and the Macedonian people, the prevailing majority, do not agree, consider it illegitimate. Therefore the matter, I consider, very strongly shook
