Newly Appointed US Ambassador to FYROM "Negates" Slavic ethnic citizens Existence (FYROM news - Russian medias propaganda)

MOSCOW, September 22 (RIA Novosti), Ekaterina Blinova
- A statement given by Jess Lippincott Baily, the newly appointed US Ambassador in FYROM, has sparked a heated debate among ethnic slavs, who claim that the Ambassador "negates the existence of the FYROM people."

"Mr. Jess Lipinkot Bailey will come to service in the country in which he negates the existence of the FYROM people. Namely, during a questioning in the Committee on Foreign Relations he expressed that FYROM Slavs were a majority and ethnic Albanians a minority in the country," writes Mina, a slavic web resource, in an article "New US Ambassador, Not Making Friends in FYROM."

EU envoy apologises for calling (F.Y.R.O.M.'s slavic ethnic citizens) ‘Slavs'

Aivo Orav
At the request of the president of FYROM, the EU Ambassador in Skopje apologised yesterday (19 November) for having called the majority of the country’s population “Slavs”, a development that could harm efforts to find a solution to FYROM’s name dispute with Greece.
EU Ambassador Aivo Orav made a statement in an attempt to calm accusations that the EU was denying FYROM's the right of self-determination. President Gjorge Ivanov asked the EU envoy to apologise, local media reported.
Orav spoke last Thursday to the European Parliament's foreign relations committee in Brussels, using the term “Slav Macedonians” to describe the majority of the country’s population.

news from FYROM

“Respect for human rights deteriorated throughout the year” reads the report on 2011....

The human rights group states that
FYROM acted “in violation of FYROM’s international obligations” when in July 2011 the parliament changed the 2002 Amnesty Law, which granted amnesty to former ethnic Albanian insurgents in the 2001 conflict, to include those charged with war crimes.
The move resulted in the prosecution dropping four war crimes cases, returned in 2008 from the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia to FYROM. All four cases involved members of the now disbanded Albanian insurgents, some of which now occupy high political positions.
