A very niche topic no doubt, but I do love a bit of Balkan geopolitics. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2...hopes-rise-as-deal-with-greece-looks-feasible Short version - the Balkan state of Macedonia has been blocked from joining NATO and the EU ever since achieving independence in 1992, due to an ongoing dispute with Greece over their name - which is shared with the historic Greek birthplace of Alexander The Great. The Greeks see this as an implied threat to their sovereignty in the region and also find Macedonia's (questionable) claims to ancient Greek ancestry inflammatory. Some might say they should just get over it, but it's pretty clear that the unadorned name Macedonia is a line in the sand for them. Anyway, after years of nationalist provocation and stalemate, it seems like the current Macedonian Prime Minister is open to compromise, and with so much economic and political instability in the region, the EU will doubtless also be pushing for a win here. It'd be another bloody nose for Russia too, who were furious when Montenegro joined NATO a couple of years ago and only really have Serbia as an ally in the region. Basically, they're going to need to choose a new name if they're ever going to make any progress, and it now looks like this might happen. What would you call them?
