President Triggers Migration Crisis in Macedonia, Contrary Interpretation Abroad
Nikola Gruevski, leader of the nationalist VMRO-DPMNE party, has ruled Macedonia for almost ten years. Before his enforced resignation in January 2016, he created an "Skopje 2014" urbanistic monument with the project. Around Macedonia Square in the center of the capital, dominated by an equestrian monument to Alexander the Great, countless statues and cream-pie-like museum and government buildings testify to Gruevski’s desire to give the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), which he governs, a self-contained historical-heroic worldview.
