Eleftheros Typos: For Skopje nationalism is not choice, but necessity

The nationalism is not a choice for Skopje, it is a necessity, the Greek daily Eleftheros Typos reports. Skopje is not the typical example of a nationalistic country. It is more a peculiar state formation without national uniformity, and with population without unified identity.
To be more precise, the daily notes, FYROM consists of population with different national identities, to which it is trying to assign false ‘Macedonian’ identity.
The daily concludes that ‘all this has no connection to Greece, nor the naming dispute. If FYROM stops being a ‘national country’, then a large part of the ‘Slav-speakers’ will start feeling themselves Bulgarians and will leave for Sofia – a process, which has, by the way, already started’, the article reads.
