The clip is from the banned TV Series ‘Macedonia’, with the song ‘Nalej nalej”. This series was banned in 2017 under the Zaev government but this clip made rounds on social media and Youtube.
Why was the show banned? As in, what justification was provided?

Not sure if there is any truth to these allegations or just typical Bulgarian spin, been searching around. Not sure if anybody else has any sources or opinions?
Unless a document can be provided showing he wrote that to the Bulgarian Embassy, I would say it is untrue. The Yugoslavs probably conjured it up to justify imprisoning him.
I know of two tragic histories in the world- that of Ireland, and that of Macedonia. Both of them have been deprived and tormented.
