The government strongly condemns the violence, hate speech and incitement to violence following yesterday’s events which were aimed at manipulating and harassing citizens, says the Government.

“We call for an atmosphere of reason and constructiveness so that a meaningful debate takes place and every Macedonian citizen has the opportunity to express his own opinion before the referendum is held, where the people can freely decide on a Macedonian prosperous future. No fear, intimidation or pressure. We urge citizens to show caution with a restrained attitude, so to recognize any fake news and misinformation that is spread via social media networks,”, reads the government statement.
