Skopje. Anti Bulgarian suspicion and hysteria shake the media in Skopje FOCUS News Agency messenger in FYROMacedonian capital informed. Along with widely commented detention of Spaska Mitrova and triggered discussion whether Bulgaria will share the position of Greece for Euro-Atlantic orientation of FYROMacedonia, comments in the former Yugo-republic for the appointment of “eminent anti-Macedonist” Bozhidar Dimitrov for Minister, and “provocation” by the Bulgarian side continue.
According to Skopje Kanal 5 and Sitel TV channels, another “provocations” by Bulgaria are mostly associated with the celebration of the 106th anniversary of the Ilinden-Preobrazhenie Uprising and presentation of a series of Bulgarian military flags stored in the National Military Museum in Sofia.

Kanal 5, which in its creation by Boris Stoimenov argued that VMRO-TV, accused Bulgarian media that observe an anniversary of “Macedonian” uprising and broadcasted an interview with Stojko Stojkov, leader of the unregistered OMO “Ilinden – PIRIN”, according to whom “defending the Bulgarian national character of the figures of the Ilinden-Preobrajenie Uprising proves in practice Bulgaria’s territorial claims to “Macedonia”. It was very difficult to Stojkov to understand why for Bulgarians Ilinden 1903 is as Easter and why it is considered in Bulgaria that the rebels in Kostur, Lerin, Bitola, Ohrid, Smilevo were Bulgarians.
From its part Sitel determines the performance of Bulgarian military flags as another provocation on the part of Bulgaria. The argument of Sitel is that “figures from the “Macedonian”-Adrianopolitan Volunteer Corps had been free battalions and they hadn’t fought for Bulgaria and for the liberation of “Macedonia”.
