New forgery from FYROM propaganda exposed – document of 1915

New forgery from FYROM propaganda exposed – document of 1915

Recently a new attempt from FYROM’s propaganda machine was made to prove triumphantly the existence of “Macedonian language” from an ‘original document’, as the propagandists claimed of 1915.  The so-called “original greek document which contradicted Athens” was published by a newspaper in FYROM while “Translated and edited” (lol!) by…who else…Risto Stefov. Of course the new “amazing discovery” was spread in the net through the usual propagandistic FYROM […]

N.S. Derzhavin, “Bulgaro-Serb Relations and the Macedonian Question”, (1918)

Quote: May the heroic Serb people at last find the necessary moral force–and they have it, it dwells within them–to recognize spontaneously what has long and unanimously been recognized by history, science, and the national sentiment of the Macedonian population itself, which sees in the Bulgarians ITS BROTHERS in language and blood, and which has fought hand in hand with […]

Allen Upward, The East End of Europe, London 1908
