North Macedonia: Political and Social Impact One Year After the Start of Russia's War of Aggression against Ukraine

by Daniel Braun, Davor Pasoski

Citizens and Parties Condemn Russian Aggression

As NATO member state North Macedonia supports Ukraine with military aid, and applies the sanctions against Russia. However, the state is economically affected by that and the people suffer high inflation rates for basic food and energy. At the same time, the disappointment about the EU and the accession process is increasing and geopolitical players like Turkey, China and partially Serbia are gaining ground. Those developments have to be considered in light of the geopolitical landscape for the future.
