fYROM: 100 Years Since the Battle of Kumanovo Celebrated with Strong Serb Presence

October 29, 2012

 Christos Mazanias, Zougla, 28.10.2012 [Translated from the Greek original by B.S.]

In the presence of the President of Serbia, Tomislav Nikolic, the Prime Minister of Serbia, Ivica Dasic, the President of Republica Srpska, Milorad Dodik and a few thousands of Serbians both from Serbia and from fYROM, were celebrated in Kumanovo of fYROM 100 years since the battle in this town, with which, during the Balkan Wars, the Serbian army defeated and pushed the Ottoman army southwards.
The presence of the Serbian leadership in these celebrations and the solemnity that was given by the Serbian state seem to have provoked a negative reaction for the majority of the public opinion in fYROM and of the historians of this country, who saw “an effort to rekindle the Serbian domination” over fYROM.
