Nikola Gruevski, Mile Janakieski and Spiro Ristovski mobilized members of VMRO-DPMNE to protest on April 27, 2017, outside the parliament building, said prosecutor Vilma Ruskoska at Thursday’s press conference.

At the protests of “For United Macedonia”, which lasted 73 days, since 27 February 2017, no member of the senior organs of the VMRO-DPMNE party, including the then-president of the party, Nikola Gruevski, did not take to the street. From the first to the last day the protests were non-partisan, civil and peaceful, and called for preservation of the national integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Macedonia.

On the other hand, on May 5, 2015, under the cover of a civil protest, a violent storming into the building of the Government of the Republic of Macedonia was organized in which members of the security forces were attacked and injured.

Violence began as an alleged spontaneous civil protest on the occasion of the publication of the bombs of Zoran Zaev, who was then president of the opposition SDSM, but at one point turned into open violence and hooliganism aimed at the police. As the media reported, then the presence of party activists of SDSM, as well as senior officials, was evident. According to media reports, Radmila Sekerinska, deputy president of SDSM, was present at the violent event.

Senior SDSM officials, including the party leader himself, and today Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, took part in the protests of the Colorful Revolution in 2016, in which the Office of the President Gjorge Ivanov was set on fire, state institutions, monuments were vandalized…

SDSM leader Zoran Zaev, his deputy Radmila Sekerinska, Oliver Spasovski, Petre Shilegov, Stefan Bogoev threw paint at state and public property of the Republic of Macedonia. With the vandalistic act of throwing paint at the Ministry of Justice, the SDSM leader showed his real face, that he is not only the leader of the opposition but also the leader of the Colorful Revolution.

Will terrorism charges be filed against Zaev?

Will terrorism charges be filed against Zaev, his deputies, mayors and other senior officials of the party who today hold high state positions because they participated in the protests of the Colorful Revolution? They did not call people through media outlets, but they broke, painted, attacked, and maybe even injured policemen? If the Prosecutor’s Office sees “a terrorist threat to constitutional order and security” in Gruevski’s call “to protest using media outlets”, what should be seen in Zaev’s participation in the Colorful Revolution? Does Russkoska want to see or she will continue to consistently practice “Ruskoska Prosecution” instead of enforcing justice?
