@Zagliveri_chess We dealt with the naming issue in an editor's note in past articles. I've updated it here with the recent development at the end of January / beginning of February.

The official name is by now North Macedonia and you should be more careful in your write up. In the same sense that you would not label as held in Ireland a tournament hosted in Belfast. Later you state the event is hosted by the government of FYR Macedonia, a characterization that is now obsolete. For me, and pretty much everybody else with even elementary knowledge of history, Macedonia is Greece, in the same way that Normandie is France, and Bavaria is Germany. The rest is political propaganda and opportunities for exploitation of the weak by the powerful.
