RT published this video item, entitled “Give it up for EU! Blackmail, sacrifice, but nothing in return” – below is their description.
The EU taketh, but not giveth… The European Union – it likes to present itself as an elite club, but is starting to sound more like a frat house that makes its pledges do humiliating stuff. Bulgaria recently blocked North Macedonia’s EU accession talks, because it claims that the Macedonian language is actually a dialect of Bulgarian. This comes after a name dispute with Greece ended by Macedonia changing its constitutional name into North Macedonia to please the EU. And now the country is being blackmailed into giving up its language, culture and even its history, with Bulgaria demanding that the Macedonians stop praising Yugoslav president Tito in their school textbooks.RT YouTube Channel

In This Story: North Macedonia
The country became a member of the United Nations in April 1993, but as a result of a dispute with Greece over the name “Macedonia”, it was admitted under the provisional description “the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” (abbreviated as “FYR Macedonia” or “FYROM”). In June 2018, Macedonia and Greece resolved the dispute with an agreement that the country should rename itself “Republic of North Macedonia”. This renaming came into effect in February 2019.
