Alexandroff also stated that, if only his demands were granted, the Macedonians would lay down their arms and recognize the Serbian Kingdom, subject, of course, to it being reconstructed as a Federal State in which Macedonia would enter on equal rights with the other members of the Yugoslav Federation.

Macedonia, as a completely geographical and ethnographic unit, which is fully located in the Ottoman Empire, and occupies approximately the same area as the territories of the free Balkan countries – Greece, Serbia and Bulgaria – with its two convenient ports on the Aegean Sea, has the right to exist and can exist as an independent political entity.

And the facts say that a great part of the Macedonian population has more a Macedonian than a Macedo-Bulgarian consciousness. According to reliable facts, supplied by our competent comrades of Macedonia itself, the Macedonian consciousness has penetrated quite deeply, especially among the younger generation, which was not exposed to Exarchistic propaganda. According to these comrades, who are fully acquainted with…

Therefore, in regard to the question whether the Macedonian dialects are Serbian or Bulgarian, I would answer that they are not entirely either Serbian or Bulgarian, but that most of them belong to an individual dialect type (which may be called the Macedonian language).

Yet in Southern Macedonia there was at first no enmity between the purely Greek villages and those speaking the Macedonian dialect. … Being neither Turkish nor Greek, we called them Bulgarian, but their language is not Bulgarian, but the Macedonian dialect, and I found lovable people among them, honest, hospitable, and kind. … It was difficult for a boy to…

These hostile Churches were the cause of the recent disturbances in Macedonia. Greeks and Bulgarians especially converted the villages with fire and sword, and in Macedonia and all along the Albanian frontier it must never be forgotten, in dealing with the boundary question, that Greek, Bulgarian and Servian means the adherence of the Orthodox Church in those countries, and not…

Macedonians were by no means Greek. They were neither by race, nor by manners, nor by tendencies. Their government was not Hellenic. Their history was analogous to that of the Illyrian, Thracian, and Paeonian peoples, who lived near them, but not to that of the Hellenic cities. Извор: google.books

Macedonia will be independent and the Macedonians will remain Macedonians…What the Macedonians want is autonomy for their country, with the intervention of Europe in their favor. No division, no annexation to another state; Macedonia is unique and to the Macedonians.
