Nikola Gruevski for Republika: Civil Sector Cannot Stay under Soros Influence
The President of VMRO-DPMNE talks about how he spent the New Year's holidays, whether he took a break or not, and reveals his future plans in an interview for 'Republic'. Gruevski says that the foundation of George Soros exerts an enormous influence on the developments in Macedonia and adds that the civil sector cannot remain under his grip. According to Gruevski, his installations are against VMRO-DPMNE, regardless of whether the party has won an election or is the opposition.
This is a part of the interview of the leader of VMRO-DPMNE.
Where did you celebrate the New Year?
I spent the New Year at home, with my family. I miss spending time with them. We spent a couple of days in Mavrovo, after the New Year's Day. There was a lot of snow. The kids were very happy. We were together at last, several days in a row.
So you also rested?
I would say it was an active vacation. A vacation on which, I have thought of plans and strategies for the future. I was carrying some materials with me. I also read a book.
Which book have you read?
Great again, by Donald Trump. Very interesting book. I highly recommend it.
What did you like the most in the book?
The enthusiasm, persistence, energy, determination… Of course, the specific plans and ideas of the new president of the United States are also interesting and challenging…
How do you know that Soros has a decisive influence on the most powerful countries when it comes to smaller countries?
His foundation, in finances and human resources is the most powerful foundation in the world that has political goals. Soros decided to use his fortune to exercise influence in two directions - ideological to the creation of so-called "Open societies" and financial, through speculation and previously known political outcomes in certain countries to capitalize on the stock market.
After a while, entire institutions, ministries, perhaps governments and their intelligence services are infected with his views, his ideology, his views and goals.
Why he is directed towards Macedonia, VMRO-DPMNE?
First, it is not from now, he acts the same for 25 years, but now in the last 2-3 years its influence is strengthened.
Whenever VMRO-DPMNE is in power, its institutions are against VMRO-DPMNE and when SDSM is in power again its institutions are against VMRO-DPMNE, as a center right and conservative political party. There is not one thing that the VMRO-DPMNE has made in these 25 years, and that one of his institution as the Open Society Institute, an NGO funded by it, a medium, or so said it was good. Conversely, there is no move by SDSM that is condemned by these institutions. So all the things coming from us are bad, and everything that is coming from the SDSM is good or if it is not good, then they do not speak about it. The man who for 25 years was head of the Open Society Institute in Macedonia is a member of the Central Board of SDSM. Last year he retired, but in fact has set a person who is a novice, which no one knows, neither knows his name, and leads the same policies of his predecessor. And they do not even hide that they are part of SDSM. They have spoken against us at political rallies organized by SDSM. So we have come to identify them as one and say SDSM/Soros.
