ABSTRACT
There is no dilemma that military symbolizes the power and the capacity of the state to ensure the security of its boundaries, but also to influence the security in wider frameworks. Military potential itself was the grounds for the equilibrium of the world until the fall of the Berlin Wall. However, the following historic events have entailed a redefinition process of the military's place in the state. This has resulted in reforms of the military potential and the interconnection of the civil and the military relations at both the national and the international level. The current threats and risks against security additionally underline the necessity for such interconnection because the military culture significantly differs from the civilian culture in the approach to certain security related issues. The situation in the Republic of Macedonia since the period of gaining independence onwards is similar. This text aims to make a very brief analysis of the preference of the military security option over the civilian option, and, at the same time, of the situation in the Republic of Macedonia related to this issue in the past 20 years.
