My wife was born in Kriva Palanka, I was born in Kumanovo, our children were born in Skopje. We all have personal documents from Northern Macedonia. I will not comment on my wife's ancestors, said today the Prime Minister Dimitar Kovacevski after yesterday's announcement of Bulgarian Labor that his wife was Bulgarian. The news was also reported by some of the Macedonian media.

According to Trud, who claims to have documents, Elena Kovacevska's father and grandfather - Mitko Stanojkovski and Stanojko Stanojkovski are Bulgarians born in the municipality of Bosilegrad. The editorial email of the Bulgarian newspaper "Trud" received a copy of a document according to which Elena Kovacevska, the wife of the current Macedonian Prime Minister Dimitar Kovacevski, is Bulgarian. Consultations with people who know in detail the process of acquiring Bulgarian citizenship, showed that the document contains all the necessary attributes to be true, writes "Trud.

The Bulgarian portal, among other things, comments that Kovachevski stated that he raised the issue of human rights for small ethnic groups "at a high level". He insisted that all citizens, including Bulgarians, have equal rights and opportunities for professional development and was ready to discuss this topic.
