Kumanovo Mayor Maksim Dimitrievski was tested negative for COVID-19, and returns back to work on Thursday. Commenting on the criminal charges filed against him for the violations of procedures for COVID-19 revealed few days ago, Dimitrievski said that he is being framed in this case, adding that it reminds him of the practices of the rule of the regime of VMRO-DPMNE. “SDSM distances itself from the recent statements and actions of Dimitrievski’s. Statements of alleged actions like ones of a regime will not prevent institutions to act in accordance with the laws. In our country, we are all equal before the laws, and Dimitrievski is well aware about that.” said Kostadin Kostadinov from SDSM.
