Alexan­der the Great in­stalled in Skopje

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Work­ers as­sem­ble parts of a statue of Alexan­der the Great at the main square in Skopje, cap­i­tal of the For­mer Yu­goslav Repub­lic of Mace­do­nia. The erec­tion of the 22-me­ter bronze mon­u­ment, de­pict­ing the an­cient leader on his horse, is seen as a sign of Prime Min­is­ter Nikola Gruevski’s re­fusal to back down on the on­go­ing name dis­pute with Athens.
