I've never seen a head of state during an interview to be so angry! This is the message that on Twitter sent famous German journalist Kai Diekmann, editor in chief of "Bild" after the interview with Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov, who recently provoked outrage in Skopje-Berlin-Brussels.

Ivanov in the interview really reacted in the way the EU handles the refugee crisis and the unequal treatment from Brussels to member states of the EU and those that are not, in terms of the assistance given to address the humanitarian and security crisis in the region. The President did not forget to comment on the delay of EU integration of Macedonia because of our name. He says the state Macedonia received zero euros in aid for refugees. Ivanov said Germany since last autumn did not allow access to EU databases from non-EU countries. Yesterday Brussels and Berlin have denied this. Quite by chance, in the German press somehow simultaneously occur interview Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar told the German daily "Die Welt", who also openly talks about dual policy of Berlin regarding refugees. And Sweden announced that it would sue the chancellor's policy on refugees. Maja Kocijancic, a spokeswoman for the European Commission, in an interview Ivanov for "Bild" that the EU cash money transfers from government bank accounts and that the EU so far Macedonia it paid 52 million euros. This cabinet Ivanov again reacted and reiterated that Macedonia did not receive our 8 euro in recent months to deal with the problems of migrants, border protection, the security of the Macedonian citizens from the threat of illegal migration, which in Macedonia comes from the country Schengen zone and a member of the Union! This coping means spending money from the budget for unexpected costs (per diem for police and military equipment, hiring health workers, damage to agriculture ...).

The money provided by the European Commission are mainly intended for international and non-governmental organizations, to facilitate the movement of refugees and migrants to maintain Balkan corridor ... the humanitarian dimension of the refugee crisis. This assistance indirectly helped the "development" of this corridor, increase the flow of refugees and illegal migration. Come to the development of networks smuggling, document forgery, easier transfer of jihadists in Europe, increased number of economic migrants, are encouraged migration from Asia and Africa, came to direct confrontation of armed forces in the protection of state borders by migrants are marred relations between states EU ... in anticipation of a joint decision, a number of Member States of the EU have brought independent decisions regarding refugees (Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia ...). These unilateral decisions have caused the formation of so-called anti-migrant coalitions in the EU. Fully revealed the dysfunction in managing European crisis management. Invoke even NATO protection of the external borders of the EU. To expand the mandate of Frontex Member States of the EU could not agree. Come to (ab) use of migrant crisis in countries where elections were held ... All this led to an increase in the threat of illegal migration and multiplication of security risks in the region, to Brussels last October persistently refused to see her. According to Ivanov, Macedonia preventive dealing with the security dimension of the refugee crisis has spent 25 million euros. This European Commission spokeswoman Kocijancic said the EU has given 52 million euros through funds that support the activities required to deal with migrant crisis. That's the point in saying Ivanov - the security problem caused by the refugee crisis Macedonia has not received a euro direct EU aid, nor permission to access the database of the EU for asylum seekers, with many more easily performed recommendation of Brussels for greater control and selection of refugees only legal point of where refugees transited to Europe - elevation 59 of Macedonian-Greek border. All European reports indicate that humanitarian assistance to refugees in Macedonia is realized through the Macedonian and foreign non-governmental and humanitarian organizations.
