Bulgaria: Explosion Rocks Office of Macedonia's Largest Albanian Party File photo

A blast occurred late on Sunday near the office of the Democratic Union for Integration (DUI), the largest ethnic Albanian political party in Macedonia.

The attack took place in Mala Recica, a village populated by over 8000 people located in Western Macedonia, near its border with Albania.

No injuries were reported, but police immediately sealed off the region, according to Macedonian daily Utrinski vesnik.

A hand grenade was evidently thrown by an unnamed attacked riding a motorcycle, local news outlets report.

Mala Recica's population is almost entirely Albanian. It is part of Tetovo, a municipality where Albanians constitute some 80 percent of the population.

DUI has often been criticized in Macedonia over its de facto support for the government of PM Nikola Gruevski which, for its part, is accused by the opposition of applying pressure on the judiciary and the media and adding to the discrimination of ethnic minorities (in a country where ethnic Albanians constitute at least a quarter of the population).

dys- prefix is not productive in English
just like mal- which is only used in malfunction, malnutrition and a few more words
mis- is the English productive suffix with the same meaning as dys- and mal-

Bg and Greece shoud ask the US and major western EU countries:
are you still siding with FYROM or with us?
do you still want that we allow your investments in our countries or we should start positively discriminating and prioritizing Chinese, Russian, Norwegian, Swedish, Swiss, Danish, Portuguese, Spanish investments (meaning: including investments from minor western countries: EU or non-EU) over yours (major western countries wanting to steal parts of out territories and give them to Turkey, FYROM or whatever)???
Do you want us to introduce such a huge transit fee for Turkish carriers that they could now longer afford transiting our countries at all??? We don't care since Bg and Greek carriers have few orders to deliver to Turkey or through Turkey (who wants to deliver anything to Iraq, Syria and the like???). This means complete shutdown of Turkey's economy and big losses for some of the European countries, the ones with trading with Turkey, more intesively than other countries.
The only major Western country that has constantly siding with Greece (and also with Bg) is France.
Do you want us to start vetoing (major but also minor) EU decisions???

So your not Slavic, huh? You are "modern ancient Macedonian", "present-day ancient Macedonian".
Not quite, (ancient) Macedonia is situated almost exclusively in Greece, only the small Pelagonia region is located within FYROM. Also (ancient) Macedonian was Greek; Pella tablet that contains the only (ancient) Macedonian text clearly shows it was an (ancient) Greek dialect. Check out wikipedia's Pella curse tablet webpage.

There are all sorts of constructs in the English language that your servile Slavic mind will never understand.

GrueFski - 7 May 2015 // 03:16:09

trying to pose as a cultured FYROMian, huh?
you forgot there is no such thing
what's dyseducation supposed to mean?
miseducation, poor education
de-education, un-educating, making someone lose its education
lack of education
what a ludicrous Bg traitor!
go back to sukking Serb, Russian but also Albanian kokk ;-)

GrueFski - 7 May 2015 // 00:39:43

whatever stupid
everyone in the Balkans knows that Tatars stand for Asian race people in general
and why are so trying to get the US sympathy and throw rocks at the Russians?
are you not too grateful for Russian "Turkish Stream" projects of going through FYROM???
you stand no change, the Albanians are so much more pro-American than you and your fellow ethnics, you are Servia's humble serv-ants and both FYROM and Serbia are in love with Russia
you are not fooling anyone here you stupid Bg traitor


MACEDONIA - SAMO "MRTOV" SIPTAR E DOBAR SIPTAR !!! (Only a dead Albanian is a good Albanian)

Gru, you are the obvious product of Soviet dyseducation. You project your own prejudices onto others then accuse them of those prejudices orcall them "provocations", an often heard Russian political strategy. Don't look directly into the mirror, it would be a terrifying ordeal, just as the Russians experienced under Stalin and his successors. Read the Gulag Archipelago to better understand yourself.

GrueFski - 6 May 2015 // 14:10:57

Rusrik must be Romanian
they are the ones so in love with everything American since they think the US will steal parts of Ukr and Bg for them and award them to Romania, thereby re-creating Greater Romania
he could be FYROMian too
in that case, you seem to have lost US support
besides, Albanians are the most pro-American nation in Europe, FYROMians on the other hand are Serbs' worshippers and (Serbs being Russia's worshippers) Russia's stooges
especially since now you are in this project (that is probably already dead, born dead that is), Turkish Stream, together with Russia and Serbia
I doubt the EU will let it be, just like they didn't let be South Stream

and stop changing your nickname, "hydra"!
more like "stop changing your nickname, you hydrocephalous idi ot!"

GrueFski - 6 May 2015 // 13:41:49

@the idiot:
oh yes you do have
why are you lying now?
tatars are the "quintessence", embodiment, personification of Asian/yellow race in the Balkans
looks like you are afraid of them ;-)

Q: How many Bulgarians does it take to change a light bulb?
A: The government has to want the lightbulb to be changed.

Q: How many Russians does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: You must have proven your allegiance to Putin before he allows it to be changed.

Q: How many Americans does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: In America, energy efficient LED light bulbs can run for 6 years continuously. At 8 hours per day, they'll last 18 years. At 4 hours per day, they'll last 36 years! You do the math.

Nothing against Asians, just against Commies. Japan and Thailand have beautiful societies as well as people. Freedom beautifies all people.

FYROM - Future Part of Bulgaria and Albania -- FPBA
Oh , I forgot
when FYROMians and Serbs mock Bulgarians with the words: "bugari tatari" (Bg = Tatars) they are actually showing their racism towards the entire yellow race. Now the entire world knows how you feel about Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, Cambodians, Thai people, Laotian, Mongolians, Myanmar people, Philipinos and so on

I saw an American driving down the street in a Cadillac, sweet ride. I saw a Russian broken down on the side of th road in his Lada. I saw a Bulgarian leading his donkey pulling a cart. Conclusion: Bulgarians don't need gas from Russia. Nor do Russian tourists. FSSOB - Former Soviet Satellite of Bulgaria

@FTROB the idiot "Macedonian"
why is that the Serbs have "taught" you that Bulgarians are Tatars and simultaneously they "taught" you that the real Bulgarians are the Gagauz people??? Both the Serbs and you, idiot FYROMians, keep on pretending these 2 things! Gagauz people are neither Crimean Tatars, nor Volga Tatars. Both Tatars groups are Muslim and look Asian, belong to the yellow race (especially the Crimea Tatars). Gagauz people look European, Mediterranean European, just like almost all of the Turks and they are Christian Orthodox, unlike the Turks or the Tatars. There is also a difference in the language they speak: Gagauz language is neither Turkish, nor Crimean Tatar, nor Volga Tatar, just like Turkish language is neither Azer, Kazakh, Uzbek, Turkmen or Kirghiz/Kyrgyz.
