Typical part of the “celebrations” with FYROM’s Slavs holding Racist Anti-Greek banners after the FYROM-Greece basketball game
The Mass hysteria and paranoia prevailing in FYROM found again the chance to come out in the aftermath of FYROM Vs Greece Basketball game in the Eurobasket of Lithuania. Two years after the humiliating defeat with 86-54 from the Greek National Team, FYROM’s national basketball team has defeated the Greek one with 72-58. Even inside the stadium, the provocations were numerous with FYROM fans waving flags with the Greek Sun of Vergina, while shouting “Macedonia – Macedonia” in the face of the Greek players.
Things in FYROM werent any better. Greece’s defeat gave the chance to thousands of FYROM’s Slavs going out in the streets waiving flags and burst into the typical Anti-Greek rants.
In the meantime, certain FYROM’s Media like the infamous MINA, found the chance to indulge again in petty fabricated news stories. MINA managed to paint a grossly exaggerated picture of reality, when presented a Greek protest in the border of Evzoni in Macedonia of Greece, to take place because of… the Greek defeat in the Basketball game!!!
This ‘protest’ came as a result of yesterday’s loss to “Macedonia” [FYROM] which apparently made many Greeks unhappy
This petty claim, of course, was completely false since the protesters had already announced their reasons. These reasons had solely to do with the soft Greek government’s policies regarding the Name Issue and FYROM’s constant provocations like the erection of Alexander the Great’s statue, the king of the ancient Hellenic kingdom of Macedon, in Skopje.
MINA up to this day is practically unmatched for the vehement, tiresome repetition of half-truths and falsehoods when dealing with neighbouring Greece.
Not long ago, in a typical fabrication of the type deployed to libel Greece, MINA managed to embarass itself by publishing false information regarding a Greek Tourist Guide.
In another grossly flawed report, MINA was caught once more fabricating news by shamelessly distorting statements concerning Ms Dora Grosomanidou, the former Head of the Greek Liaison Office in FYROM. After these series of spreading misinformation, its not surprising that FYROM’s media are accepted in the general Greek public with ridicule.
