“Despite speculation that in Hungary I am staying in a luxury hotel for which I pay a large amount of money, I can say that only the first one – two days I was in a hotel and it was far from luxurious. Then I was helped by friends, so I am staying with them,” said former Prime Minister of Macedonia, Nikola Gruevski in his first interview after the escape and political asylum he received in Hungary for Sitel TV.

He also said that since he had been there, he hadn’t met with Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
