1. @Sam,
    The map ia stupid and highly inaccurate. Greeks is Albania and Albanians in FYROM , Hungarians in Serbia and Serbs in Croatia are natives, not foreign born residents.
    In fact, in Albania the largest ethnic group of foreign born residents are Italians (mostly pensioners).
    Nice try on trying to show Albanians in FYROM as "immigrants".

  3. >>How many wives have you got?
    /Leonidas, 14 June 2018 17:32/

    OK, Leonidas - I do not know, what is going on (re-wife/friend/etc).
    This is as serious as it can go.

    1) At the time we moved back from U.S. no one in HU or my village in RU did recognize me. I looked like... a balloon.

    2) With the normal (EU-HU-RU) diet after 11 years I do look now as I should... without all the years spent in U.S. Now everyone recognizes me!

    3) As for my friend... she is a 100% mystery. She got a cancer practically no oriental (statistically) can get. Ever. But it is 100% deadly. I, too, had my share of problems - but I am a lucky one, with a major West European (and free!) insurance.

    4) Anyway, we of course asked all the doctors about us and her. Being shy is not a choice.

    5) The doctors asked us: "at what age did she move to U.S." - she moved there as a small child.

    The doctors in (HU, EU, RU - sorry, did not talk to American ones) told us: "heck knows, what kind of genetically modified cr@p she ate. You are lucky to move back. She is not. She is NOT oriental - as far as her food + habits + life style. She is 100% American... God have mercy on her".

    Indeed, I am devastated (so is her h/b). No one can do anything. This is how USA "works". OK, if we are lucky - not 2, but 4 more years.

    Our company is gone, 20 years of my life is gone, there going to be three kids without mother.

    Lesson? If you immigrate to U.S. - get the f*ck out of it, ASAP. For your health.

The true old Macedons are very few in number but history and culture is Hellenic not Slavic. Do yourself a favour and visit Vergina and Philip of Macedon tomb and see the relics which are pure Hellenism.

    Tsipras is nothing but a clever demagogue who will disappear as fast as he has bent over to EU communists on every single occasion .Come next year (new elections) not even his own mother will remember him. The US has already got a naval base in Crete and it’s also well known that they moved their nuclear weapons from Turkey to Romania two years ago.As to Erdo they’re going after him hammer and tongs. That’s what they always do, don’t they? All Empire-installed puppets must commit to the Empire’s commandments. All you have to do is look at the past century’s history. See what happens when an installed puppet gets too confident and inflicted with hubris, and ignores one or more commandments. This is when they are reborn as dictators, despots, torturers, and. This is when their backyards get dug up to find a few grams of weapons of mass destruction.
    As to the rest of your claims that Greece and Albania are living on a sea of oil they sound as far,far fetched.I know Greece carried out some seismic tests in Patra and the Ionian Sea but then it went quiet until this year when Tsipras awarded the Ionian Sea exploration to a French company and its partner Greek petroleum.Summer dreams Skender Bey.

  15. The history is falsificated and abused for personal gain of politicians.
    Ataman

    Recorded ancient history often relies on primary sources and other physical evidence ie Archaeology and DNA recently, which historians use to write accounts of the past.It’s definitely not based on wishful thinking.Was it falsified by politicians? Firstly, there were no politicians at the time but rulers who were no answerable to no one and since recorded history firstly appeared after 400BC it probably varies greatly in quality and reliabilityThat doesn’t mean it was falsified.

    Anything that takes a potential flashpoint for the region off the table is a bonus. Just look to Russia, China & India who have over the last years sought to resolve outstanding territorial issues, Russia even giving land to China in the far east to settle. None of them want these to flare up unexpectedly and complicate relations. China - India is more complicated, but still, such problems are best put to bed sooner rather than later.

  18. @ Leonidas Comrade Tsipras has made a 360 grad turn recently after licking Trump's a*. There's nothing of a comrade in Tsipras and Kotzias. Two new things that happened recently, 1- Greece (and not Albania with all our a* licking talents) is now considered the regional pillar of US geopolitics with Greece offering to host US bases that are being kicked out of Turkey by Erdo the Terrible. In return the US is supporting Greece in the ongoing discussions on Macedonia issue and last but not least and by far more important issue that is the delimitation of the maritime shelf between Albania and Greece. French are supposed to begin drilling in the Jon area soon while Rama boasted with Erdo that Albania lives on a sea of oil. The same sea he is now being obliged to give up to Greece. Its all about that oil between our maritime borders and those borders are likely being defined on Greece's benefit. So the "treason" of Tsipras on the name issue is the least he would concede to Americans. Foreseen by me only months ago.

    You're probably a member of the educated Macs of barbers and garbage collectors of Australia to come up with the above statement.Your comment that Macedonia (northern Greece) was repopulated by the exchange of 1922 is partly unfounded. Yes an exchange did occur but keep in mind two things. First, more Greeks of Asia Minor were settled in southern Greece the islands and Crete than in northern Greece, and secondly (and more important) Macedonia had a majority of Greeks BEFORE 1922, it did not gain a majority after the exchange.Do take a look at the Ottomann census of 1904,1908 and 1911 to see the truth.

    Aplogies for being a corrupt Russkie Jew. My wife is Hungarian Швабо and it's even worse than a Ruskie Jew. Do not want to speak about my "ex"-es.

    To be precise.

    Albanians = mountain dwellers in millennia, recently (19th century) woken up. They are locals, of no historic importance.

    Macedonians = HELLENIC (not Greek!!!). It's not 100% the same thing. But close enough.

    Slavs = locals or maybe not. Moved in "officially" around 7th Century. Or maybe earlier.

    Slavs = Macedonians? Maybe. Or maybe not. Irrelevant. Church-Slavonic is the Slav dialect of Thessaloniki from 10th Century. That is 100%.

    Slavs = Schythians = Hittites? According the language + genetics = probably.

    Hungarians = Schythins = Turks = Sumerians = Finns? Looks like there is a connection, getting complicated.

The more I talk to genuine Greeks they mostly recognize me as I am and I see there is a hidden truth of what it means to be Greek and its very loose to the point it’s all BS held together by the Greek Orthodox Church with tape with the mere fact Greeks today live on a patch of land and believe are a literal continuation of the ancients and have a complete ownership of History.

    Ethnic Macedonians have been discriminated and assimilated for over 100 years and I can say Hellenism has been darn good and almost removing Greece of all its National Minority’s those that built the back of Greece and that is the Skelton in the Closet for Greece

    The Macedonians keep on paying for it they are giving up allot and coming to an acceptance to benefit their Country and people and are putting this dispute In all honesty I would like to see Greece and Macedonia become friends and real Greeks (not those new comers or fell they are victims) to get to know the Macedonians because they have so much more in common with them then arguing about Alexander the Great

  35. Neither Albanians nor Slavs have anything to do with ancient Macedonia a Greek city state. However most of the present state of Macedonia is not located in Greek Macedonia but in the Illyrian kingdom of Dardania and Shkupi was their ancient capital. Any Albanians claiming Alexander the Great should stop that b.s, his only connection to Albanians was the fact that his fathers first wife was an Illyrian princess that is it. In regards to his Epirote mother, she can’t have been Albanian as Epirus was ruled by a Greek family even though the population of the region was very diverse a mixture of both Hellenes and Illyrians. I don’t agree much with Greeks but the Slavs need to celebrate their own history and leave Greek history alone. Once we make peace with the past than we can truly move forward and look in to creating a brighter future.

  36. Technically, they have a right to the name Macedonia as well. Historically and originally, Macedonia began in today’s northern Greece; however, with expansion by Phillip he incorporated the Illyrians, Paeonians and some Thracian tribes. They naturally become ‘citizens’ of the Macedonian Kingdom. It’s kind of like Yugoslavia, it encompassed a large area over many minorities, but unified under a Yugoslav nationality. Even though the language is Slavic in Macedonia, let’s not forget that only about 18% of the population is of Slavic heritage (most of those Slavic tribes migrating from western Ukraine/northeastern Romania). The rest are for the most part indigenous (yes, some Roman soldiers came in the 1AD, I believe some Celts came 300 BC to invade Greece, but settled in today’s North Macedonia). These groups along with the Asiatic Cumans, assimilated with the old Illyrian, Paeonian and Aromanian populations long before the arrival of the Slavs. So, the name MACEDONIA, even then engulfed many many different tribes, and therefore, the name rightfully belongs to all citizens of today’s lands that make up ancient Macedonia. If Greece wanted it so bad, they should have formed a country named Macedonia. Why not, it was a kingdom, and the fact that Slavs and Albanians did today should not anger anyone as they have as much right if not more than refugee Pontic Greeks from Turkey, who came in the population exchange to Aegean 100yrs ago.

  38. So the South Slavs now think they are Greek Macedonians. The Albanians think they are Macedonians as well turning history upside down. If anyone has any doubt Macedonians are Greek, look at the Ancient relics from Alexander the Greek, written in Hellenic, and documented by Herodotus. Pontians are from Asia Minor which was predominantly populated by Greek Macedonians and migrated to Northern Greece, present day province of Macedonia, Greece. So called "Northern Macedonia" is populated by South Slavs from Serbia and Bulgaria and Albanian nomads. The only "Greeks" in Northern Macedonia are the Communists who escaped to Yugoslavia during the Greek civil war and were integrated and gladly stole the Greek Maecdonian name. Tsipras a Communist himself continues to bow down to EU pressure, first selling his countries assets to the highest bidder and now succumbing to EU pressure to steal Greek Macedonia from it's rightful owner, Greek Hellenic History. Tsipras failed to take the right road, declaring bankruptcy, restructuring the economy. Bankruptcy will come sooner or later in Greece as debt will not be erased by it's creditors, instead Greece will continue to be sold off to the highest bidder including its own history.

    Today's "Macedonians" are Bulgarian and have nothing to do with Alexander the Great.
    Only Greeks and Albanians have the right to fight about Leka the Great.
    Leka is nick name for Alexander in Albanian.Albanian currency is Lek to honor Alexander the Great.

    We are not Bulgarians in fact there isn't single Bulgar in the Republic ZERO our homeland is Macedonia portioned and divided by our Neighbors all of them
    my people know the Greek Immigrants from Turkey's as new comers (the Pontians) we can just use the term “prosfigi” to simplify things

    Albanians are the largest foreign born element in Greece
    Albanians and Macedonians make up Greece
    and it is the Macedonians who have every right to their cultural legacy

  46. for MIR

    MIR it is known that Romania is poor that is why are millions of Romanians in West , before 2015 it was more poor than Serbia it had lower minimum and average salary and average pension .

    After came at power Psd and Dragnea in 2016 december in only 1 year and half the average pension had grow at 245 euro [link] and in july it grow at 280 euro . In 2019 will be indexaction +15% for all people and +40% for who is full age and then in 2020 +41 for all people

    As for average salary it had grow from 430 euro at 600 euro in only 1 year and half . and the gdp had grow +7% in 2017 , average gross salary had grow from 584 euro in 2016 at 1000 euro in 2018

    Medical system including nurses make in 2018 3 times more than in 2016 and are at same level with pay from West , next year is the turn for others

    I WILL COME WITH LINKS FOR EVERYTHING AS ROTE NEXT DAYS

    I think with PSD and DRAGNEA Romania can reach miracle heights in 2020

    A funny fact is that at pension system before 2017 indexactions it was deficit 1 billions and after indexactions + more big taxes for West at gross salary in 2018 the deficit is only 400 millions euro

    Pnl payed pensions 7% of Gdp , Psd will pay 30% in 2020 of Gdp and 10% in 2018

    All this decisions are taken by Liviu Dragnea , he said he will defeat even EU and NATO , i will come with links as ROTE this days

  52. Greece 🇬🇷 caused all this turmoil over “new” word inserted ?!
    This “NEW Macedonia” makes Greece safer and guarantees no Slav expansion?
    If there is a “New Macedonia” then obviously there must be a “South Macedonia “?

    Greece argued illogically and accepting this new name makes simply no sense.

    A sizable NATO and EU country such as Greece with billions in EU welfare handouts and NATO supply of weapons over many decades caused Athens fear of attack from a small weak Macedonia 🇲🇰?

    Crying wolf aren’t we 🇬🇷 Greece?

    Accepting this illogical new name you would think Skopje ought to fear being overtaken by Greece since it’s part of Macedonia-GREECE....
    The New North Region......

  53. Reply Bucharest

    Life is still affordable in Croatia because they are on the Kuna. Many work abroad and send money back or family sends money back to help.

    Until they get rid of all the ex-communists who use to run Yugo and now run Croatia, they are stuck.

    There is a lot of talent leaving all Balkan states. The EU has opened doors for these young people which is good and bad at the same time.

    It’s good to be proud of your roots but Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria etc., have not much to be proud of when it comes to salaries in their countries when comparing to other EU countries. The same is true for the non EU countries in the Balkans (Serbia, Bosnia, Etc.).

    In saying this, the people for the most part seem happy and content. I do not believe that money is the main motivator. Life and friendship and socialization is their motivation.

    All the best. Have to visit Romania one day.

    Congrats to Northern Maced

  55. For Croats

    Very very very weak performances for such a small country with such a fantastic legacy of tourism and even highways

    Croatia should been a developed country

    That 800 euro average net salary is because Croatia is not a country but a city , Croatia population 4 millions people and Bucharest metro population is 2 millions and half

    Croatia is expensive to , you cannot compare prices from Romania with Croatia

    In Zagreb monthly pass for public transport is 50 euro , heating electricity and this things 175 euro , internet 25 euro

    Zagreb is more poor than Bucharest , one thing as fact is certain in Zagreb you pay for bills + internet + transport 250 euro , in Bucharest for this things you pay 60 euro

    In Croatia average pension is 300 euro i wonder how live the old people from Croatia
