The Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has reacted sharply to media reports about a burnt Bulgarian flag in the Republic of North Macedonia. This happened in the village of Vevčani during the traditional carnival, held on St. Basil's Day according to the old style calendar. 

Bulgaria's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ekaterina Zaharieva has ordered the Bulgarian Ambassador to Skopje Angel Angelov to express to the government in Skopje the strong indignation of Bulgaria over the act of vandalism. The ambassador has already made an oral demarche at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of North Macedonia. 

Earlier, media in Skopje reported that police had dispersed participants in the carnival. The carnival in Vevčani is famous for combining pagan and Christian traditions with satire of current political events.
