The situation in Macedonia is very serious, said European Parliament rapporteur for Macedonia Ivo Vajgl.

– I would not like to predict catastrophic scenarios, but must take into account that there are many open questions, harsh words, and even hate speech – said Vajgl for London “Guardian“.

EU representative warns of growing tensions in the country candidate for EU membership due to accusations that the ruling party performed mass wiretapping, undermined the judiciary and the freedom of media.

– We have already seen this in the Balkans, everything begins like this. The situation must not be underestimated. It is very serious, and we need to help Macedonia – said Vajgl.

Macedonia, which is a candidate for membership in the European Union, is facing escalating political crisis due to charges of “coup”, mass wiretapping scandal, and claims that the Government and security services created a plot to undermine the judicial system and to hijack media reports, reports “Guardian.”
