The Prime Minister of the Republic of Northern Macedonia Dimitar Kovacevski condemned the attacks on the police, noting that although protests are a democratic right, violence cannot be justified by anything.

"What happened last night in front of the Parliament is not the true face of the European Republic of North Macedonia, a NATO member country. Protests are a democratic right of every citizen, but violence cannot be justified by anything," he says.

"I strongly condemn the attack on the police, who were up to their task last night, professionally protecting citizens and state institutions," says Kovacevski.

Violence and hatred are not, and cannot be, the solution to any problem. I will tell the arsonists of the protests - do not manipulate and abuse young people to satisfy your political appetites. Your scenario last night resulted in over 40 injured police officers and over a dozen arrested. April 27 will not happen again", Prime Minister Kovacevski's FB status states.
