    Former leader of commando's #Albania: Untrue can kill us in one hour, we have more brave men then #Macacedonia, #Serbia & #Rusia together

    So Ali Ahmeti, leader of coalition party #Gruevski, confirms that one ethnic Albanian escaped from #Kumanovo. Current location #Kosovo.

    Ramush Haradinaj is against formation of ethnic Serbian division in Kosovar Army.

    BREAKING: Ivanov sending letter to countries of UN saying that "It is the fault of Kosovo and several ethnic Albanian politicians" (S:B-Web)

    Without a clear path to Nato and EU the risks of Macedonia fracturing are overwhelming. Greek veto is irresponsible. http://www.economist.com/news/europe...or-distraction

    Each day brings a new explanation... Serbian Daily claims #Kumanovo Shooting staged by Former Security Chief https://shar.es/1r5wME

Happend one day before protests in meeting Min Foreign Affairs and Speaker was present. Details are unclear...but source say #Kumanovo main theme.

    Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, organised the meeting. Details unclear

    Russian plans for disrupting the EU and the US in the Balkans are progressing nicely.

    Support for Serbia's EU membership fell from 56.4 to 41.1 percent - survey http://inserbia.info/today/2015/05/s...-1-pct-survey/ via @InSerbiaNetwork 17 May

    To all those saying Albanians are fighting for greater Albania. Here you go: pic.twitter.com/jlRVvgD2FO

    The more #Gruesvki try to divide #Macedonia the more people gather to ask for his resignation ! https://twitter.com/olimp7/status/599905474927063040

    Not even 2pm and thousands filling Skopje streets. Amazing atmo. Albanians, Macedonians together. Even Turkish and Roma flags
    Crowd dancing and a playful waterfight has broken out in the midday heat

    Default After the bugging and the bullets come a peaceful protest

    A comprehensive report on the peaceful demo in Skopje now:
    Huge crowds (est. 40k) joined a major anti-government rally in Skopje, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski amid a political crisis sparked by a mass surveillance scandal.
    Not spotted this before. Does this mean the government will falter, if not fall:
    wo days after calling the police action in Kumanovo a success, Interior Minister Gordana Jankuloska, the chief of the secret police, Saso Mijalkov, as well as the Transportation Minister, Mile Janakieski - all heavily implicated in the illegal surveillance scandal - resigned.

    Protesters rally in Moldova to back reunification with Romania, say no to Russian pressurehttp://www.neurope.eu/ap_feed/protes...sian-pressure/

    Not a single incident at the protests in #Skopje! That is already good step forward for Balkan, hopefully an inspiration for upcoming ones.

    John Schindler @20committee
    Latest Kremlin Active Measure: Terrorist raid in Macedonia was "really" false flag US/UK SOF from KFOR. All the rage in Skopje right now.

    The essence of provokatsiya is creating problems in order to solve them. True in 1890, true in 2015
