Moscow has reacted in relation to the latest events in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, especially after the incident at the border police post in Goshinca, near the border with Kosovo. The Foreign Ministry has issued a press release in relation to this incident saying that the incident in question is jeopardizing security in the country.

“We are concerned following information in relation to the incident on the border of Macedonia, when an armed group took a border police post under control. This incident shows that in this part of the Balkan there is still deep tension and there’s room for potential conflict. The failure to establish a serious rule of law in Kosovo and the failure to solve the Kosovo problem in its entirety, have largely contributed for this situation. This can no longer be ignored, along with the added slogans of Great Albania”, says the press release of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

The statement also demands for the efforts of Macedonian authorities to be backed by the international community in order to restore order in this problematic region of the country. Moscow reacted about the situation in FYROM after the publication of the wiretapping affair and the accusations launched against the Macedonian opposition leader, Zoran Zaev, demanding a political and legal solution of the situation. /ibna/
