In Hungary, the political asylum seeker is Nikola Gruevski, a former Macedonian prime minister who would have been forced to visit the prison this year to download a two-year sentence for corruption. A Macedonian politician is one of the closest foreign allies to the Orban government: during the Gruevski government, a "desorption" of the Former Yugoslavia was announced, and the first Stop Soros movement was set up. There are a lot of Gruevsky accounts: he used to be an attack on allies and opponents in the past.

Between Victor Orban and the former Macedonian governor who resigned in 2016, there are many parallels: they are both in common with personalities that can be honored or hated, and both in their political party and then in government for the first time have centralized decision-making procedures . As Victor Orbans escapes the country with his stadiums, Gruevski, who has recovered for ten years in the country for twenty years, is trying to transform his scoop according to his taste. Statuettes and monuments, reminiscent of Macedonian history and Alexander the Great statues, were excavated, buildings of Greek style and bridges were erected in the city center, and the state authorities were named by the Macedonian rulers.

The "New Macedonian" spark in Skopje was that Slavic people took over the majority of Bulgarian-speaking languages ​​and, according to critics, "propagated" Macedonian Macedonian past. Gruevski is not worried that the Greeks were still hampering the integration of Skopje into NATO and the EU, seeing the statues of the Great Alexander and Philip, who, according to the Macedonians, claimed that the Macedonians demanded Macedonia in the North Sea Macedonia province.

The Greek past was certainly the result of Gruevsky's father being born in Greater Macedonia and his grandfather died as a Greek army soldier during the Second World War. The family fled from the Greek civil war to that of Yugoslavia, which was part of Yugoslavia. Though Gruevsky learned from the entrepreneur only introduced the policy in 1996, his uncle Jordan Miljakov was a well-known and respected person. He was the one who, at the time of the destruction of Yugoslavia in 1991, ordered the seizure of local documents from the Yugoslav army, so that the army could not summon Macedonian citizens, and the Macedonians were left behind in hostilities in Croatia. Miljukov no longer comes to Serbia, where he was killed in a car accident in a strange situation.

In addition to the huge structures of Soros, there is also a link between two politicians Orban and Gruevski. According to Gruevski, born in 1970, an American businessman from Hungary was behind the demonstrations of opposition Social Democrats in 2015 and 2016 and, of course, he also organizes migrants to Europe. Macedonia was the first country to create an innovative "Stop Soros" organization before the beginning of 2017 – when the nationalist party called Gruevski, a former Macedonian revolutionary organization, the Democratic Party of Macedonia's National Unity (VMRO-DPMNE), was formed. The goal of the "volunteer" movement – Government-sponsored press "volcanoes" were to "clean up" in public life from civilian organizations pushed out of a series that, after the initiators' suggestion, did not leave fair movements. Gruevski joined the war, accusing the NGO of an attempt to find a legitimate government with foreign help. "Gruevski believes that Soros is a father of liberalism and therefore he is the most serious threat to authoritarian leaders," said Arsème Zekoli, political analyst at Grouvski Macedonia.

In Orban and Grуvskii, this is similar to the fact that at first they both considered the West as allies, but eventually they came to Russian friendship. Gruevski – they say in Skopje – it began to change after 2008 when Macedonia's accession to the North Atlantic Alliance came to a halt during the NATO summit, with the Greek veto.

Enchantment served the same purpose as in Hungary: problems encountered in solving domestic problems. There was also something to sweep out and it turned out that Gruevski had taken over thousands of people for years, including government members, opposition politicians, judges, journalists, civil society leaders and foreign diplomats. Materials from covert agents from the secret services included many things: election fraud, blackmail, corruption deals and even some murders. To find out the secret interception, a separate troop was created, while Gruevski and his party – while VMRO-DPMNE was authorized until 2017 – where it could sabotage an investigation.

In addition to a suspicion against Gruevski, several corruption investigations were launched, and so far only a case was filed in which he was accused of politics and sentenced to two years in prison, that he had bought for half a million dollars in money from the armored luxury Mercedes, and he even received money from the trader. Thus, while escaping from his home country, he not only tried to avoid a two-year prison but also a penalty that could have been imposed on any other incident.

Representatives of Orban and Gruevski were also represented by the fact that last year the Hungarian prime minister went to Macedonia to help the opposition party in the Gruevski local electoral campaign. Gruevski was defeated, but it was already said that Orbans had invited Gruevski to Hungary, who was denied travel – he also complained – that her passport was involved.

His passport has not happened, but now he has gone to Hungary. However, at the request of a political asylum, he seriously created a dilemma for his allies in Hungary: if he gets asylum, then the Hungarian government is opposed to the EU and NATO, which supports the current Social Democratic Macedonian government. (Zoran Zaev, the Prime Minister of the Social Democratic Party, agreed with Athens on the closure of the dictionary and stopped the boycott of the new country "Northern Macedonia" instead of a Greek name instead of changing the name of the country.) If Hungary, however, felled Gruevski, then Budapest would "pluck out" his loyal friend threatening his interests in Macedonia: near Fidesz entrepreneurs have bought, among other things, more property to support Gruevski in Macedonia.
