Greek Military Cemetery in FYROM Desecrated

ValadovoLOn March 14, unknown perpetrators entered the Greek military cemetery in the town of Valantovo, FYROM, and desecrated the graves of Greek soldiers that died during World War I.

The Greek Liaison Office in Skopje, after being informed of the extensive damages, immediately contacted FYROM’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to express its abhorrence and to complain, and demanded that an immediate investigation should be conducted.

The head of the Greek Liaison Office also stressed that “such events do not serve to improve relations between the two neighbors; on the contrary, they worsen them.”

A representative of the Liaison Office, as well as a Defence Attaché visited the cemetery without delay, and found it was extensively destroyed. The head of the Liaison Office in Skopje, by order of Foreign Affairs Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos, has issued a formal demarche, demanding local authorities condemn the attack, take necessary precautions, locate and punish the guilty parties, as well as restore the damages.

According to the Greek newspaper “To Vima”, the Ministry noted that “unfortunately, these events confirm the dangers and consequences of the nationalism and populism that are being cultivated in FYROM, to the point of deeply insulting the deceased, and disrespecting history”

    Stupid Skopians.

  • Savas

    Obviously skopjian nationalists who have not, or simply can’t, ever accept their Bulgarian origins!

  • canadian

    There are occasions where jewish graves have been damaged/destroyed in Canada?
    Does this make every canadian an anti-semite?

  • aleksandar

    As a makedonec I find it insulting, possible new Greek destabilization program..but don’t jump to high hypocrites, remember my grand fathers grave in Aegean Macedonia was desecrated, name in Macedonian removed and replaced by an unfamiliar Greek idiom..this happened to all Macedonian graves in Greece..

  • Savas

    Before your Bulgarian forefathers came to this land my skopjian friend, the toponyms, local dialects, and culture was Greek!
    To the north, in your current yugislav land of skopjia, it was Illyrian and Paeonian, the ancestors of what has now become the Albanian minority!

    Now get over yourself, and see if you can remember which historical desecration you stand for!

    Disgraceful!!.. F#@ken FYROMonkeys, go back to Bulgaria where you ex-communists belong, you filthy pigs….. Macedonia is and always will be Greek..

  • hankz

    The FYROMonkeys seems to be confused with their little or whatever history they have, let me help.. FYROM are Bulgarians and speak Bulgarian, they have arrived into Europe 1000 years AFTER the great Greek King, Alexander The Great.. The only solution for FYROM is to be divided and the Bulgarians to return back home to Bulgaria..

    Virtually the whole country of FYROM is not only openly threatening our borders with united Macedonia rhetoric but also trying to ethnically erase the Greek people by usurping our very identity. Those that apologize for them are evil.

    You are not Macedonian. You are either a descendant of the Greek Communists who fled Greece during the Civil War which saddens me, a descendant of the Serb criminals who were all sent to South Serbia during the years of Yugoslavia before Tito decided to brainwash the population, or a descendant of Bulgaria which was something you were once proud of being, again, well before you were brainwashed by Tito.

    Do you honestly believe Megas Alexandros spoke Slavic and spread the Slavic Civilization? Tell me, then, why there are still tribes in India whose language and culture is part Greek and Indian?! Tell me, why every credited scholar and historian claim Alexandros as a Greek?! Tell me, why it is only your pathetic little Albanian infested nation that the only one that cannot accept facts?

    And before you jump the gun and tell me that so and so countries have recognised FYROM as Macedonia, this is for strategic purposes only because the Superpowers of the world know just how desperate, pathetic and easy your people are to control. When the Albanians have another uprising, they will not help you. Serbia will not help you. Bulgaria will not help you. Greece will not help you. We will all sit back and watch your contructed nation fall apart and then, we will all take a portion of it.

    Greeks, Albanians, Bulgarians and Serbs may all have their shared differences (not Greece and Serbia), but at least we all know which part of history belongs to the other, whose culture is whose, and so on.

    When Skopia falls, remember me and what I said, because I too will be sitting at the Kafeneio and laughing my ass off at the confused Slavs being destroyed by Albania.
