Zaev findet neuen Namen für Mazedonien: Republika Ilindenska Makedonija!

Mazedonische Medien melden: der als Wahlverlierer an die Macht gekommene Premierminister Zoran Zaev habe einen neuen namen für das Land gefunden „Republika Ilindenska Makedonija“!
Auf Deutsch erklärt: Republik Ilinden Mazedonien, wäre der neue Name des Staates „der eine historische Kontinuität bis zum Ilinden Aufstand der Bürger von Ilinden Mazedonien beweist“.
Dies ist der Vorschlag zur Lösung des Namensstreits, der in Sofia zwischen den mazedonischen und griechischen Premierministern Zaev und Tsipras diskutiert wurde, meldeten mazedonische Medien.
Die Paketlösung für den Streit um den Landesnamen Mazedonien sieht vor, dass die Sprache – Mazedonisch bleiben soll. In der Spalte – Staatsbürgerschaft, soll nach dem Vorschlag geschrieben werden: Bürger der Republik Ilinden Mazedonien, und es wird keine Änderung der internationalen Codes geben und wird weiterhin die Abkürzungen MK/MKD verwenden.
Ministerpräsident Zaev hat gestern bestätigt, dass ein Paket über den Streit diskutiert wird. Nach einem Treffen mit Tsipras in Sofia sagten sie, dass sie mehrere Optionen in Betracht zogen, von denen eine für beide Seiten akzeptabel war.
Mit der Referenz „Ilindenska“ soll die historische Kontinuität des Staates, auf den sie sich bezieht, und in der Präambel der Verfassung bestätigt werden. Bis jetzt gab es Verhandlungen über geographische Referenzen – in der letzten Reihe von Vorschlägen von Nimetz waren: Gorna, Severna, Vardarska.
Für Gespräche mit Tsipras kündigte Zaev an, er werde sich mit dem Präsidenten und dem Oppositionsführer beraten.
„Wir setzen die Konsultationen mit den Institutionen fort, und wenn möglich, werden wir wahrscheinlich eine Lösung finden. Wir haben bestätigt, dass wir die Premierminister aller Errungenschaften sind. Für das, was übrig war, haben wir uns verschiedene Optionen angeschaut und eine Option festgelegt. Aber wir müssen aufpassen, wie dies umgesetzt wird. Wir werden mit den Präsidenten der Staaten und anderer Führer und mit der Opposition sprechen „, sagte Zaev auf einer Pressekonferenz in Sofia.

Inside the Macedonian

Fake-News Complex


The first article about Donald Trump that Boris ever published described how, during a campaign rally in North Carolina, the candidate slapped a man in the audience for disagreeing with him. This never happened, of course. Boris had found the article somewhere online, and he needed to feed his web­site, Daily Interesting Things, so he appropriated the text, down to its last mis­begotten comma. He posted the link on Facebook, seeding it within various groups devoted to American politics; to his astonish­ment, it was shared around 800 times. That month—February 2016—Boris made more than $150 off the Google ads on his website. Considering this to be the best possible use of his time, he stopped going to high school.

Boris isn’t his real name. He prefers the anonymity because he doesn’t want to break ranks with the other people in his town of Veles, in the Balkan nation of Macedonia. Nobody here wants to dwell on Trump anymore. Veles has the feel of a small community clamming up out of a suspicion that it’s being talked about for all the wrong reasons.

In the final weeks of the US presidential election, Veles attained a weird infamy in the most powerful nation on earth; stories in The Guardian and on BuzzFeed revealed that the Macedonian town of 55,000 was the registered home of at least 100 pro-Trump websites, many of them filled with sensationalist, utterly fake news. (The imminent criminal indictment of Hillary Clinton was a popular theme; another was the pope’s approval of Trump.) The sites’ ample traffic was rewarded handsomely by automated advertising engines, like Google’s AdSense. An article in The New Yorker described how President Barack Obama himself spent a day in the final week of the campaign talking “almost obsessively” about Veles and its “digital gold rush.”

Within Veles itself, the young entrepreneurs behind these websites became subjects of tantalizing intrigue. Between August and November, Boris earned nearly $16,000 off his two pro-Trump websites. The average monthly salary in Macedonia is $371.

Boris is 18 years old, a lean, slouching youth with gray eyes, hair mowed close to his skull, and the rudiments of a beard. When he isn’t smoking a cigarette, he’s lighting one. He listens to a lot of gangsta rap: the Notorious B.I.G., Puff Daddy, Wu-Tang Clan; after watching Notorious, the 2009 biopic of B.I.G., he decided he would like to visit Brooklyn, a New York City borough he imagines overrun more by gangsters than hipsters. He is an affable raconteur, with a droll sense of humor and a clear-eyed view of himself and his town. Someday he wants to leave Veles, because of how little there is to do. You can live with your parents and have them pay for your evenings in a bar, or you can bus tables in a café. If you’re a gym rat, you might work security. A few factories on the outskirts of town still offer regular employment, but nothing lavish. “We can’t make money here with a real job,” Boris says. “This Google AdSense work is not a real job.”

At best, Boris’ English is halting and fractured—certainly not good enough to turn out five to 10 articles about Trump and Clinton every day for weeks on end. Fortunately for him, the election summoned forth the energies of countless alt-right websites in the US, which manufactured white-label falsehoods disguised as news on an industrial scale. Across the spectrum of right-wing media—from Trump’s own concise lies on Twitter to the organized prevarication of Breitbart News and NationalReport.net—ideology beat back the truth. What Veles produced, though, was something more extreme still: an enterprise of cool, pure amorality, free not only of ideology but of any concern or feeling about the substance of the election. These Macedonians on Facebook didn’t care if Trump won or lost the White House. They only wanted pocket money to pay for things—a car, watches, better cell phones, more drinks at the bar. This is the arrhythmic, disturbing heart of the affair: that the internet made it so simple for these young men to finance their material whims and that their actions helped deliver such momentous consequences.

One day a couple of summers ago, Boris was walking to school when he saw a BMW 4 Series parked by the side of the road. “What the fuck?” he thought. “My favorite car is in this town?”

He asked around, but no one seemed to know who owned the BMW. Later, in a café, he met a Counter-Strike acquaintance named Aleksandar Velkovski. “Aleksandar, I saw this BMW 4,” Boris told him. Velkovski revealed that the car was his. He’d bought it, he said, with the money he made off his website.  https://www.wired.com/2017/02/veles-macedonia-fake-news/
