  • Thessaloniki Mayor Boutaris Calls The FYRoM* Simply As " Macedonia " (16-11-2017)

    This is unacceptable! He's more likely senile, so, he should immediately leave office! The official name of the country is the *FORMER YUGOSLAV REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA until a mutually agreed solution to the pending name dispute with Greece will be found. Indeed, such an affirmation by "Gospodin" Boutaris directly supports the historically erroneous and expansionist positions of the FYRoM. Let's not forget that for over a decade, until recently, the former state authorities in the FYRoM (VMRO-DPMNE party) were supporting or at least encouraging the spread of ultranationalistic pseudo-scientific theories about the history of its Slavic inhabitants, as allegedly related to the ancient Macedonians of Greek stock, and of racist anti-Hellenic propaganda.

This is unacceptable! He's more likely senile, so, he should immediately leave office! The official name of the country is the *FORMER YUGOSLAV REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA until a mutually agreed solution to the pending name dispute with Greece will be found. Indeed, such an affirmation by "Gospodin" Boutaris directly supports the historically erroneous and expansionist positions of the FYRoM. Let's not forget that for over a decade, until recently, the former state authorities in the FYRoM (VMRO-DPMNE party) were supporting or at least encouraging the spread of ultranationalistic pseudo-scientific theories about the history of its Slavic inhabitants, as allegedly related to the ancient Macedonians of Greek stock, and of racist anti-Hellenic propaganda. The proper approach to counter that doesn't consist in just the making of some diplomatic declarations by the FYRoM's new authorities (SDSM party) about what would they intend to do in the future, while nothing being concretely done yet, but in negotiating for the final name of that country and reaching to a mutually agreed solution, which obviously cannot be the contested name of simply "Macedonia". http://data.un.org/CountryProfile.aspx?crName=The%20former%20Yugoslav%20Republic%20of%20Macedonia http://thenationalherald.com/181420/thessaloniki-mayor-boutaris-makes-overtures-fyrom http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yiannis_Boutaris Because of what the current mayor of Thessaloniki says in the above video - http://youtu.be/5AlYwCMj0cM?t=259 , we cannot be impressed about him, as an official of the Greek state's administration, even though local, but we might agree with the answers he gave in the video at this link (i.e. "compound name") - http://youtu.be/bfoCdAdsUQ8 GREECE ELLAS ELLADA MACEDONIA MAKEDONIA ALEXANDER PHILIP ALEKSANDROS ALEKSANDAR ΕΛΛΑΣ ΕΛΛΑΔΑ ΜΑΚΕΔΟΝΙΑ ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟΣ ΦΙΛΙΠΠΟΣ ГРЦИЈА МАКЕДОНИЈА АЛЕКСАНДАР ФИЛИП HISTORY ΙΣΤΟΡΙΑ ИСТОРИЈА ANCIENT ΑΡΧΑΙΑ АНТИЧКА NAME ΟΝΟΜΑ ИМЕ REPUBLIC ΔΗΜΟΚΡΑΤΙΑ РЕПУБЛИКА YUGOSLAV ΓΙΟΥΓΚΟΣΛΑΒ ЈУГОСЛОВЕН TRUTH ΑΛΗΘΕΙΑ ВИСТИНА FYROM F.Y.R.O.M.

Thessaloniki is the second-largest city in Greece and the capital of Greek Macedonia, the administrative region of Central Macedonia and the Decentralized Administration of Macedonia and Thrace. The municipality of Thessaloniki, the historical center, had a population of 385,406 in 2007, while the Thessaloniki Urban Area had a population of 800,764. and the Thessaloniki Metropolitan Area had 1,104,460 inhabitants in 2011. Thessaloniki is Greece's second major economic, industrial, commercial and political centre, and a major transportation hub for the rest of southeastern Europe; its commercial port is also of great importance for Greece and the southeastern European hinterland. The city is renowned for its festivals, events and vibrant cultural life in general, and is considered to be Greece's cultural capital. Events such as the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair and the Thessaloniki International Film Festival are held annually, while the city also hosts the largest bi-annual meeting of the Greek diaspora. Thessaloniki was the 2014 European Youth Capital. The city of Thessaloniki was founded in 315 BC by Cassander of Macedon. An important metropolis by the Roman period, Thessaloniki was the second largest and wealthiest city of the Byzantine Empire. It was conquered by the Ottomans in 1430, and passed from the Ottoman Empire to modern Greece on 8 November 1912. Thessaloniki is home to numerous notable Byzantine monuments, including the Paleochristian and Byzantine monuments of Thessaloniki, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as several Roman, Ottoman and Sephardic Jewish structures. The city's main university, Aristotle University, is the largest in Greece and the Balkans. Thessaloniki is a popular tourist destination in Greece. For 2013, National Geographic Magazine included Thessaloniki in its top tourist destinations worldwide, while in 2014 Financial Times FDI magazine (Foreign Direct Investments) declared Thessaloniki as the best mid-sized European city of the future for human capital and lifestyle. Among street photographers, the center of Thessaloniki is also considered the most popular destination for street photography in Greece.The city was founded around 315 BC by the King Cassander of Macedon, on or near the site of the ancient town of Therma and 26 other local villages. He named it after his wife Thessalonike, a half-sister of Alexander the Great and princess of Macedon as daughter of Philip II. Under the kingdom of Macedon the city retained its own autonomy and parliament and evolved to become the most important city in Macedon. After the fall of the kingdom of Macedon in 168 BC, Thessalonica became a free city of the Roman Republic under Mark Antony in 41 BC. It grew to be an important trade-hub located on the Via Egnatia, the road connecting Dyrrhachium with Byzantium, which facilitated trade between Thessaloniki and great centers of commerce such as Rome and Byzantium. Thessaloniki also lay at the southern end of the main north-south route through the Balkans along the valleys of the Morava and Axios river valleys, thereby linking the Balkans with the rest of Greece. The city later became the capital of one of the four Roman districts of Macedonia. Later it became the capital of all the Greek provinces of the Roman Empire because of the city's importance in the Balkan peninsula. At the time of the Roman Empire, about 50 A.D., Thessaloniki was also an important center for the spread of Christianity; while on his second missionary journey, Paul the Apostle visited this city's chief synagogue on three Sabbaths and sowed the seeds for Thessaloniki's first Christian church. Later, Paul wrote two letters to the new church at Thessaloniki, preserved in the Bible canon as First and Second Thessalonians. Some scholars hold that the First Epistle to the Thessalonians is the first written book of the New Testament. In 306 AD, Thessaloníki acquired a patron saint, St. Demetrius, a native of Thessalonica whom Galerius put to death. A basilical church was first built in the 5th century AD dedicated to St.Demetrius. When the Roman Empire was divided into the tetrarchy, Thessaloniki became the administrative capital of one of the four portions of the Empire under Galerius Maximianus Caesar, where Galerius commissioned an imperial palace, a new hippodrome, a triumphal arch and a mausoleum among others. In 379, when the Roman Prefecture of Illyricum was divided between the East and West Roman Empires, Thessaloniki became the capital of the new Prefecture of Illyricum. In 390, Gothic troops under the Roman Emperor Theodosius I, led a massacre against the inhabitants of Thessalonica, who had risen in revolt against the Gothic soldiers. With the Fall of Rome in 476, Thessaloniki became the second-largest city of the Eastern Roman Empire.
