VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski met with farmers from south-east Macedonia, who spoke about the drop in the prices of their produce and their living standards.

They guaranteed you they will secure customers for your products, they promised a safe future for the farmers, but in reality they caused a disaster, Mickoski said following his visit to Valandovo, Bogdanci and Novo Selo.

Worst hit are the apple growers in the Prespa region, but other farmers are also affected by the drop in prices.

We have to put an end to the humiliation of our people caused by Zoran Zaev. This person tells us he is working for the future generations, but is trying to cut our roots. And still, we are like weeds, we grow up right back again, Mickoski said.
