US orchestrated unfair vote in Macedonian parliament on name change - Russian FM

The Russian Foreign Ministry has said that the US orchestrated an “unfair vote” in the Macedonian parliament which approved the country’s name change, despite a failed popular referendum.

The Macedonian parliament last weekend narrowly greenlighted the name change which signals a “brighter future” with NATO, but Macedonian voters by-and-large boycotted the referendum, with only 36.9 percent of eligible voters participating.

Earlier, the US State Department had urged the Macedonian opposition to vote for the name change despite the failed referendum, which was rendered invalid due to the low turnout.
