    Ivanov will receive a Russian prize for his contribution to the Orthodox religion


    Skopje, 25 April, 2017 – 16:30 (META) 

    The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Gjorge Ivanov was awarded the prize “His Holiness Patriarch Alexy II of Moscow and All of Russia” for 2016, which in May, at a ceremony in Moscow, the President will be presented the award by the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, His Holiness, Cyril.

    The award was granted by the International Foundation for the Unity of Orthodox Christian Nations, for his outstanding work in strengthening the unity of the Orthodox people and the establishment and promotion of Christian values in life and in society.

    It is expected that the ceremony to award the prize will be held on May 23, 2017, and will take place in the temple of “Christ the Savior” in Moscow.



    the establishment and promotion of Christian values in life and in society.

    Like corruption? I can see why the Patriarch of Moscow would like this guy.  :D 



    How is he corrupt? Or is this just assumption? 



    Rex Hatson Wire tapping. And when they were caught he pardoned them and called off the trials. There’s also accusations of election rigging. And when those were investigated he stopped those investigations as well.



    Exercising his presidential powers is not a crime.



    Legally no. Morally it is. 



    Lol. So, Macedonia wiretaps people.  Big deal honestly, its just surveillance.  Western Governments breach the Nuremburg Code which is punishable by death penalty, but hey, they still do it.



    I didn’t take you for a boot licker. Surprising.



    Every politician is corrupted. Its just the question of how much against his people he does.



    Shaokang Maybe in liberal democracies where corruption is promoted. 



    Svevlad  as you see you do not share the opinion of the Macedonians.  



    The wiretapping was done by Verushevski not by Jankulovska. The proof is that almost all wiretapped material posted on Youtube were conversations between VMRO officials not by SDS. This is well known to the Macedonians (excluding SDS and Sorosoids) but to foreign agitators who intentionally are twisting the facts.

    Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russiapresented Tuesday in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow the ‘Patriarch Alexy II’ award to Macedonia’s President Gjorge Ivanov for his efforts to strengthen the role of religion in society, promote Christian values and religious tolerance, as well as improve the ties between Orthodox nations.

    The prize of the International Foundation for the Unity of Orthodox Christian Nations (IFUOCN) are awarded annually to the heads of states, governments and parliaments, dignitaries of the Orthodox Churches, and major public figures for their contribution to the strengthening of economic and political ties among the states formed in the context of Eastern Christian tradition and for the consolidation of noble standards of Christian morals in the life of Orthodox community.

    “I embrace this recognition as Macedonia’s President and Orthodox Christian, born and raised under the umbrella of the restored St Clement Church ­ the Macedonian Orthodox Church – Ohrid Archbishopric. In that active church, restored 50 years ago, our worldview has been built,” Ivanov said at the warding ceremony.

    Expressing gratitude for the recognition, Ivanov said he was pleased to be its recipient for 2016 ­the year when Macedonia observed the 1100th anniversary of the death of the great Slavic scholar St Clement of Ohrid, without whom ‘we would have lived today in a different, spiritually and culturally poorer Europe.’

    Referring to globalization, Ivanov said it managed to unite the world in terms of economy and divide it politically, thus contributing to escalation of conflicts and wars. Considering these challenges, Ivanov said that he, as a Head of State, would act in line with three principles ­ respect, dialogue and openness, which could help to building the new world.

    Besides President Ivanov, this year’s recipients include Coptic Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria and Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin.

    Previous recipients include former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Russian President Vladimir Putin, prominent religious leaders and public figures.

    Beginning of meeting with President of Macedonia Gjorge Ivanov

    President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr President, let me welcome you in the Kremlin.

    I know that it is a special occasion that brought you to Russia. You are here to receive an award presented by the International Foundation for Unity of Orthodox Christian Nations. Today is a special day in Russia as well – the Day of Slavic Literacy, and the Slavic alphabet and literature came to us from Macedonian soil. I would like to begin by congratulating you on this award.

    You and I are both aware of the fact that what I have just mentioned illustrates the special relations that bind us. It is a pleasure to see that our relations are developing and that, thank goodness, we are also seeing progress in our economic ties.

    Of course, we closely follow developments in your country, and we most certainly wish you success in ensuring that Macedonia’s internal political situation develops in accordance with the Constitution and democratic procedure. I am sure that your experience, influence and authority will be of help here.


    President of Macedonia Gjorge Ivanov (retranslated): Mr President, Mr Minister [Lavrov], Mr Ushakov,

    It is a great honour for my delegation and for me to be here at the Kremlin today, all the more so as this visit, just as you said, does indeed have great significance, as today we are paying tribute to the pan-Slavic educators and saints, the brothers Cyril and Methodius, who are our spiritual teachers.

    I thank you sincerely for your congratulations on this award. It has great significance for me personally as President, and for my country. This award has even greater significance because it is for 2016, which was the year when we celebrated the 1,100th anniversary of the death of Saint Clement of Ohrid, our most famous holy figure and the most prominent disciple of the holy brothers Cyril and Methodius.

    Although more than 1000 years have passed, so many centuries, we continue to honour the memory of the holy brothers Cyril and Methodius and their disciple, Saint Clement. People in Macedonia say that a person dies not when he is buried, but when he is forgotten. We share a common memory of the educators Cyril and Methodius, and this does indeed give us hope for preserving their teachings and hope for the future.
