Anti-Bulgarian moods in Macedonia are rapidly escalating with two violent acts occuring just hours after each other over the weekend.

A group of Bulgarians commemorating their local patron Mara Buneva were beaten up in Skopje on Saturday, and later the same night Buneva's monument was pilfered and all the flowers and wreaths burned to ashes.

The spokesman of the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry Dimitar Tsantchev said Saturday that he incident iwas proof that certain circles in Macedonia continued their attempts for leading active propaganda against Bulgaria.

Despite the harsh statements from the Ministry, police in Macedonia seem to have done little to stop the anti-Bulgarian moods in the country. Skopje police have questioned several youngsters, but there are no identified attackers, bTV reported. Macedonia's Interior Ministry refused to comment on why they didn't do anything to stop the violence on Saturday.

Macedonia's envoy to Sofia has been summoned to the Foreign Ministry to explain what is going on in his country, and he should appear before the authorities on Monday.
