Greek security services give out flyers calling for ‘independent Aegean Macedonia’?


According to, leaflets appeared in the area of Lerin and Seres, Aegean Macedonia with content that calls for Autonomy of Aegean Macedonia in Greece.

The leaflets have been signed by an unknown organization calling itself VMRO United and they are calling on Macedonian brothers from Aegean Macedonia to unite for Autonomy of Aegean Macedonia.

The news about the leaflets was first published by the Macedonian newspaper IlindenĀ  which is based out of Albania.

Greek daily Kathimerini admits that this could easily be the work of the Greek secret service to portray ethnic Macedonians in a negative light particularly after the BBC report.

The leaflet does contain some rather strange spelling errors that an ethnic Macedonian wouldn’t do.
