Will Macedonia Be Removed From The Map In 2018?

The future looks very grim for Macedonia as the newly installed pro-Western coup “government” wastes no time in dismantling the country’s identity and selling out sovereignty to some of its hostile neighbors, both of which could have the cumulative effect of erasing what is constitutionally known as the Republic of Macedonia from the world map by sometime next year and replacing it with a domestically reconstituted “federalized” (internally partitioned) entity internationally recognized by a “politically correct” “compromise” moniker.

Backdrop To The Balkans

The tiny South-Central Balkan country of the Republic of Macedonia is in dire straits right now, but most of Europe – let alone the rest of the world – has no idea that this is the case because the Mainstream Media narrative is that the state’s two-year-long political crisis was “resolved” when the patriotic VMRO-DPMNE government of Nikola Gruevski was replaced in a “constitutional/electoral coup” that followed Color Revolution and even Hybrid War provocations. The author wrote about this in a Sputnik piece at the time from May 2017 titled “The Macedonian Crisis Isn’t Over, and a Bigger Balkan One is Just Beginning”, and the reader should review that article and also skim through his Oriental Review & Sputnik archives on the topic if they’re not already familiar with the contextual backdrop of what happened and why.

In a nutshell, the Republic of Macedonia was targeted for Hybrid War destabilization in order to offset Russia and China’s Balkan megaprojects of the Balkan Stream gas pipeline and Balkan Silk Road, respectively, that are expected to transit through the country, though with the former possibly being redirected to Bulgaria instead. In any case, a trumped-up “surveillance” scandal was used as the Color Revolution “trigger event” for attempting to coerce a Regime Tweak (political concessions), the failure of which forced the external conspirators and their internal Soros-backed SDSM “opposition” collaborators to move towards the next step of Regime Change, though eventually the decision was made for a Regime Reboot (constitutional change) to fundamentally cripple the country and forever prevent its key integration in the emerging Multipolar World Order.

The point of this piece isn’t to chronicle all of the author’s previous analyses on the topic, nor to reiterate his explanation about what’s previously been happening and why, but to engage in forward-focused reporting and scenario forecasting in raising awareness about the fraught future that awaits the Republic of Macedonia.

The Great Partition

The newly installed pro-Western coup “government” of Zoran Zaev and his Soros-backed SDSM cohorts has swiftly moved to cut a serious of external and internal deals that are bound to endanger the country’s existence by next year. For starters, despite denying it all throughout the 2016 campaign, his party is now aggressively trying to push through “bilingualism” in setting the institutional precedent for what logically seems to be the country’s inevitable forthcoming “federalization” (internal partition). Concurrently with this, he also signed a “treaty” with neighboring Bulgaria that essentially makes Macedonia a junior-rank partner susceptible to being swallowed up by its civilizationally similar brethren to the east in the event of a serious domestic crisis, such as the one that could be sparked on command by the country’s “federalization” and de-facto partial absorption into the revived Nazi-era geopolitical project of “Greater Albania”.

The formal international partition of the Republic of Macedonia between Albania and Bulgaria is what the author predicted back in May 2015 and which was even indirectly responded to by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the time during the height of the country’s Color Revolution crisis, but this process has since taken on an unofficial form as well if Macedonia is “federalized” into an Albanian western half simultaneously with its eastern one being socio-economically subsumed by Bulgaria, with this latter scenario being facilitated by the Albanian “bilingualism” push and recent “treaty” with Bulgaria. Some Macedonians have keenly picked up on this plot, but that’s why the ruling authorities have sought to imprison patriotic citizens and political figures in order to intimidate the rest of the population into passively allowing this anti-constitutional and even treasonous process of state dismantlement to continue.

Zaev’s “Dictatorship Of The Proletariat”

At the same time as SDSM is locking up its political opponents, it’s also trying to pass through a controversial “amnesty” proposal for freeing convicted criminals, which might even apply to Daesh terrorists who are returning to the country. Despite the “government’s” heavy American-ordered pressure on civil society, the Republika online information outlet was brave enough to write about this appalling dichotomy in pointing out how imprisoned terrorists and free patriots are poised to switch places if Zaev gets what he wants. This alone speaks to the silent “lustration” process that’s being carried out in the country right now to “cleanse” its permanent military, intelligence, and diplomatic bureaucracies (“deep state”), as well as academic, media, and other institutions, of all opposition to the coup-imposed authorities.

Interestingly, SDSM is establishing a sort of “dictatorship of the proletariat” in Macedonia, seeing as how the party presents itself as a “leftist-socialist” one, and true to the tradition of this ideological camp, it’s using the cover and slogans of the working class (“proletariat”) to set up an actual dictatorship in the country. Just like it’s usually happened in the past, “leftist-socialist” demagogues are distracting the masses with high-sounding platitudes and crafting a media-acceptable narrative for their external backers to hide behind in “justifying” the seizure of power by an elite group of individuals who are far removed from the actual concerns of the working class. History has a curious way of repeating itself, as the EU is the warped ideological successor of the Soviet Union taken to its most dystopian socio-cultural and dictatorial extremes, so there’s a certain “logic” behind why this faux “leftist-socialist” “government” is so fawning towards Brussels.

But unlike during the Soviet period of the Old Cold War when any ideologically aligned country could join the Eastern Bloc, in the “EuroLiberal” era of the New Cold War there are certain bureaucratic obstacles that prevent the free accession of aspirant states to both the EU and NATO, namely – pun intended – the Republic of Macedonia’s constitutional name. The aforementioned post-modern unipolar structures occupying Western Eurasia are set up in such a way that new admissions must be consensually agreed upon by all existing members, and in this case Greece is adamantly opposed to Macedonia joining either of these two. What might have at one time been viewed as a “curse” in the chaotic international uncertainty immediately following the dissolution of Yugoslavia, this “veto right” has actually turned into a “blessing” because it formally kept Macedonia out of both organizations until the present day.

Name Games

Nevertheless, the US-installed coup “government” of Zaev’s SDSM wants to change that, but the only way that he can do so is if he gets rid of Macedonia’s constitutional name and therefore erases the country from the map. It doesn’t matter if it’s called “New Macedonia”, “Northern Macedonia”, or “The Central Balkan Republic” like has been speculatively reported, or even the author’s own admittedly absurd prediction of the “Federation of Vardar Albania”, but the fact of the matter is that it won’t be the Republic of Macedonia, a name which has taken on a semi-sacred aura as the torchbearer of Macedonian identity across its rich history. The EU Commissioner signaled that he expects Zaev to change Macedonia’s name by next year, which would then allow the country to be fast-tracked into both the EU and NATO and thus formalize its occupation by the Western elite.

All of this should rightly enrage any Macedonian, but Zaev and his fellow underlings are unfazed because they don’t have any patriotic affiliation to their homeland. Just like their Soviet predecessors, their loyalty lies with an ideology, not a nation, which is why they’re literally selling Macedonia out to Albania, Bulgaria, and the EU in order to please Greece and therefore fulfill the US’ grand strategic vision of annexing their country to its hegemonic unipolar institutions in order to more effectively disrupt, control, or influence China’s (and possibly Russia’s) Balkan megaproject(s). The final step is to remove Macedonia’s constitutional name and replace it with a “compromise” one, but the run-up to dealing a deathblow to this ancient country is the destruction of the monuments to Macedonia’s civilizational heritage that were built as the flagships of the former VMRO government’s Skopje 2014 project.

Monument Mockery

To add insult to injury, the “Cultural Marxist” erasure of all visible signs of Macedonia’s historical uniqueness will probably be directly supervised by Hoyt Brian Yee, Victoria Nuland’s successor and expected replacement of current US Ambassador to Macedonia Jess Baily. Yee was just as responsible for Macedonia’s coup as Nuland was for Ukraine’s, yet at least the Eastern European country wasn’t totally humiliated to the point of having her officially oversee the destruction of its monuments to Lenin, the founder of Ukraine’s first-ever statehood no matter how “politically incorrect” it is for its ultra-nationalists to ever acknowledge. In Macedonia’s case, however, the Balkan country is being forced to endure the shame of having the man most directly responsible for their coup placed in charge of seeing out the destruction of monuments representing a much older civilizational heritage than just the past 100 years.

If the Skopje 2014 monuments, especially the horseman in the city center that’s clearly supposed to be Alexander the Macedonian, are destroyed, then it will probably be impossible to prevent Macedonia’s name change and its subsequently swift annexation into the EU and NATO alongside the state-supported suppression of its people’s culture, history, and civilization. The “government’s” plan to make a mockery of Macedonia’s monuments and disown its very identity could function as an emergency “trigger event” for sparking a “reverse-Color Revolution”, which the author previously analyzed as the creative utilization of Color Revolution techniques by patriotic individuals for multipolar and pro-sovereignty purposes, just like what was attempted in May when concerned citizens unsuccessfully tried to prevent their parliament’s takeover by a former Albanian separatist-terrorist who was designed by Zaev as that body’s “speaker”.

A Third Force Is Calling

If Macedonians don’t band together to stop what is being falsely marketed as an “apolitical and anti-corruption municipal decision”, then it might be inevitable that their country will cease to exist in its present name and possibly even state (per an internal and/or external partition) by next year. If the monuments fall, Macedonia falls, once and for all, which is why the last chance to save Macedonia is to save its monuments. VMRO has the greatest potential to organize legal and peaceful demonstrations in support of this pressingly important issue, but some of the party elite are unfortunately partly compromised due to what can only be postulated is American blackmail pressure against them, be it the threat of physical violence or illegal arrest on fake pretexts (“anti-corruption”, “abuse of power”, etc.) by the coup “government”. As such, a Third Force needs to eventually emerge, possibly growing out of VMRO and the various civil society movements aligned with it, in order to counteract the limitations being imposed on the former ruling party and serve as a bridge for attracting “moderate” SDSM supporters who were misled during the last election.

The protection of Macedonia’s monuments – and accordingly its statehood, civilization, and identity – mustn’t be framed as a partisan political issue, which isn’t at all what VMRO is doing but its potentially pivotal role in being the organizational center of such a civil society movement might make it easier for SDSM and its American-Soros backers to manipulate the perception that it is, which is why it’s essential that a Third Force develop in leading the way during this historically crucial moment. Whatever it’s called and however it’s formed, this Third Force will be the vanguard actor protecting Macedonia from dismantlement, with its members understanding that it’s now or never to safeguard their state because its very existence is incompatible with the EU and NATO’s plans expansionist plans. The Republic of Macedonia is slated to be removed from the map so that its people and territory can be formally annexed to these two unipolar structures under Zaev’s “dictatorship of the proletariat”, and all indications point to 2018 being the make-or-break year where Macedonia’s patriots will either prevail or the country itself will perish.

  11. i’ll make a bet with you : that russia will be dismantled first, before macedonia. i’m glad that my country finally catches the last EU/NATO train leaving russian “bear hug” behind. ask east europeans about the russian boot, how it’s to live under russians. look at poland then, look at it now. russia? only writers and composers which i admire, all other things just back off from balkans, please.

  12. This is fraud analysis. Some half truths and some ‘outside players’ projections mixed with words in (brackets). and the linking of Macedonia with the antic era was just … The only way for macedonia no to be engulfed in ethical struggle and follow-up secession of its eastern territories to Albania is integration with EU/Bulgaria – this will block the albanian actions. also the bigger threat to macedonia is serbia and its intelligence apparatus lurking in the country. back in the ’90s when the country split off of Yugoslavia only Bulgaria send humanitarian and militarily help (no personnel only material). the so called macedonians are blood and history brothers with bulgarians. time will show the truth and heal the wounds. Russia/China can’t offer shot to Macedonia, they are both powerless in projecting power and can influence things only via Serbia. Instead of wasting time and resources for agitprop campaigns Russia should work towards connected and independent balkans with whom to make business later on equal footing because all other alternatives were proved wrong by History.

    P.S. Before I like Andrey’s work very much but lately he is exposing himself as some kind of a conductor of someone else’s thoughts. Ssd story

  17. This article is a load of bull!

    There is no Macedonian civilization, culture or identity associated with this country. Its a country Tito made up after having too much wine. The old idea of stealing Greek national heroes like Alexander the Great and claiming them as their own is absolutely ridiculous. There is no way this country can move forward if it tries to steal history from others.

    It must make its own history, its own way, that is the only way forward, to actual meaningful development.

  22. Great article. The truth and nothing else maters. Macedonians need to Wake Up and overturn this terrorist illegal Government by corrupt criminals Zaev and Ahmeti. even in Macedonia human rights of Macedonians are being destroyed. And we live in 21 century not middle ages.

  23. Who is going to wake up the Macedonians??

  24. What was once Macedonia is now an island, Rep. of Macedonia, being the last stronghold of the Macedonian people, but that too is evaporating fast. What we have is a so-called elite who are abject materialists, whose base natures have been stoked and fired as is the wont of USA/EU fashists around the world today – yes, the US and EU are today’s heirs too Hitler and Mussolini – with the result that these opportunists, as marionettes of the aforementioned occupiers, US/EU – have established total control over the country and are blindly driving Macedonia toward the abyss. Although Andrew Korybko does not go into too much detail where Macedonian history is concerned, ( there has been “The Macedonian Question” for at least 200 years, which is kinda strange when you consider that “Greeks” and “Bulgars” sprout off like brain dead morons in each and every “comment” that we are a creation of Tito. The same Western Powers have always been against a Macedonian state, ie; have always sought to close the Macedonian Question at the expense of the Macedonian people ) he is however absolutely correct re: the situation we currently face, frighteningly so. Despite objections from “Bulgars”, “Greeks” etc. who are patyologically unable to see anything objectively where their false identities are concerned. True too, it is that “Turkish Stream” could well have been the straw that broke the camel’s back for the CIA who were behind the coup of course.

    If we’re to understand that everything has a life cycle, we would know that the Macedonians are fast entering their end as a people. There is a great irony in all of this, in that without Macedonia there could be no Greece, no Bulgaria, Albania or even Serbia, as each has taken for themselves from the Macedonians an integral part of their identity. I would in fact, put it that many Macedonians have become that worst of unnatural breed, “janichari” or janissaries, Macedonians who have been assimilated into the “Bulgarian”, Serb, Alb. or “Greek” fold and today are our most fanatic enemies. When I read “comments” from Bulgars re: Macedonia ( we arrived as Tataro-Mongols in Macedonia, found here nameless, identityless “Slavs” and after absorbing their language, culture and identity, created the super race, “Bulgarians” LOL. ), I have to laugh, or cry, or shake my head. Greeks, poor sensitive souls that they are, too, object that Macedonians were created by Tito with a wave of his magic wand one sunny day, I ask myself do Greeks know anything about their Western made “identity”? Obviously not, except for deep down in the recesses of their one-dimensional souls. Over the years I have had many discussions with “Greeks” and w/out exception thay degenerate very quickly into ugly mud-slinging affairs same as Blgars. Serb nationalists are the same, even though 18th C. Serbian school texts taught that the Macedonians were the oldest native European people. As for the Albanians, whats to say about a tribal people whose consciousness is somewhere circa 13/14th century, and whose religion is “Albanianism”? Finally, Bulgars speak of arriving on the Macedonian Peninsula somewhere 7th/8th C. AD. Serbs claim somewhere about a millenia history. Greeks claim pure blood, no mixing of other “impurities”, except, wait for it, a “one and a half percent Muslim component”. Albanians were created as a “homonogenous” people circa 18th C. by Austro-Hungaria as a Western bulwark against Serbia etc. However, Macedonian istoriography claims no arrival from anywhere, we have always been here! And lest “Greeks” “Bulgars” respond with quotes from Gligorov, that we are slavs who arrived 7th C., most Macedonians disagree and consider themselves as direct descendents of Filip, Aleksandar and the ancient Macedonians. And this for centuries!

    So, let the chips fall where they will. We live breathe and walk the earth while a disinterested God, looks after IT’s affairs with scant thought for the doings of men. Or is it? Disinterested, I mean. Perhaps there is an order of Souls advanced enough to be above the affairs of men and have earned a postion known as “Lords of Karma”. Everything is in its rightful place, as painful as it may be for some. In the passing show, everything is not as it would seem.

  25. If you name yourself after whole geographic region you are (in fact) making bold statement – many bold statements, in fact!

    1- I (unilaterally) stake claim to whole region

    2- I reserve the right to stake claim to whole region at some future date

    3-The region is named after my forebears

    4-The Place-Name describes my paternal ancestors tribal name

    5- I claim historical rights and cultural-heritage rights of the whole region

    6- I relegate downwards, the self-determination rights of other regional contenders

    7- I claim all cultural endowments gifted from geographic region name

    8- I reserve the right to write and rewrite historical narrative for whole geographic region

    9- I reserve the right to raise monuments in the name of geographic regions powerful figureheads

    By choosing to name itself after whole geographic region, FYRoM is (unilaterally) making bold statements it cannot possibly live up to. Regardless the ramifications and consequences of their actions.

    FYRoM (unilaterally) chose to name itself after the whole geographic region of Macedonia. Without the consent of the regions native autochthonous inhabitants.

    FYRoM sits on 38% of geographic region of Macedonia. But chose (unilaterally) to name itself after the whole.

    The geographic region of Macedonia comprises of Greece 51% – FYRoM 38% – Bulgaria 11%. It is irrational for 38% to (unilaterally) claim the name of the whole.

  26. The so-called name dispute is a political construct dreamed up by the USA, specifically the Clinton administration, and has very little to do with issues such as those enumerated by “Nick the Greek”. The West has always had its own designs on Macedonia and they have never included the Macedonians. Balkan Wars anyone? Greece, a Western construct and an incidental player ( same as Serbia, “Bulgaria”, Albania ), has been used by the West as a means to justify its political agenda; disenfranchising the Macedonian people of their identity, their historic lands and history/culture for their own geo-strategic/political goals. Greece has been indulged in every possible way – the spoiled child of the west, indeed, a creation of the West – as Nick the Greek illustrates very well. The Macedonian people know very well who Greeks are, as evidenced by their century old saying, “indebted like a Greek”.

    For every argument a Greek puts forth, there is a counter argument from Macedonia, however, never has it been a level playing field and Greece, a child of the West has been allowed to bully Macedonia into submission. Pitiful really, and an indicator of the Greek character. There can be no argument where beliefs are concerned, there are simply two opposing views which can never be reconciled. Its all politics, read; might makes right. For the record, I’d like to say that “Nick the Greek” is lying when he says that Macedonia has usurped its identity from Greece, the exact opposite is true. Also, Macedonia has never “unilaterally” claimed the name “Macedonia” as he claims. To wit, former Macedonian Foreign Minister Antonio Miloševski said so circa 2007; Macedonia has never denied Greece their claim to call themselves “Macedonians”. Ironically, it’s Greece who as usurper and thief is the one who claims exclusivity to the name. Strange really, if they were truly Macedonians, why havent they called themselves Macedonians, instead they chose their newly created state early 19th C. to be called “Greece” a generic term having a number of meanings for example, a Christian, or a merchant. Actually, it was chosen for them and then the resident peoples, primarily Albanians, Vlahs ( Aromanians ) Turks, various Slavic speakers were shaped to fit the “idea”.

    To be clear, Greeks can never be anything other than regional Macedonians, but hey, who cares, its just one more indication of the confusion of the Greek mind. In summation, the extermination of the Macedonian identity has been a centuries long process with Macedonia’s neighbors the beneficiaries, and this can be shown by the steady expansion of the borders of Greece, Albania, Bulgaria etc. while Macedonia has slowly disappeared, its cultural legacy pilfered and finally, we have to stand by and endure our country, our land, name, religion, language being taken away from us by force. In the end however, difficulty builds character and spiritually, only the individual counts. All else is false, a wild goose chase.

    Makedonia was, is an dwill forever be Greek! Alexander The Great waqs not a cryphtobulgarian speaking slav. Ancient Macedonia was a greek kingdom. Andrew Korybko have always hated the Greeks and always favorice the Fyromians. I hope Greece will once and for all close the border to Fyrom- The most fake country in the world.

  31. FYROM has to be returned back to Serbia as “Vardar Serbia”. Skopje proclaimed independence in 1991 on illegal basis breaking international law. FYROM has territorial pretensions on Greek and Bulgarian state territory for the sake to create Greater Macedonia. The best year of Macedonian history was 1913 when Serbia, Greece and Bulgaria solved Macedonian Question on democratic way. Macedonians are Zombi nation created by Croat Tito.

  32. “I hope Greece will once and for all close the border to Fyrom- The most fake country in the world.”

  35. We should be called Republic of Ancient Macedonia. That is who we are and you can all swallow the truth and choke on it. We’ll never be wiped as people, our warrior bloodline is strong. Hence, why such a ‘small country’ can still stand and defy all the bullies and injustice.

    A great war will come again in the Balkans if this injustice continues. We’ve had enough and deserve our humanitarian rights as a country. And so it begins…
