There is only one Kiril Gligorov – remember this man


Born in Shtip, in 1903, Kiril Gligorov was the very definition of a Macedonian revolutionary. Because his name is similar to the name of former president Kiro Gligorov, this Macedonian has seldom been mentioned, if ever.

Yet, if you’re going to remember one of these names, make sure that it is Kiril Gligorov and not the other guy who fled the country to Greece in 1991 and opposed both the Macedonian referendum for independence and the independence itself.

Gligorov died at the age of 22. In 1925 he was captured, tortured and shot by the Serb Army. His crimes? He worked for and wanted independent Macedonia. This is the man you remember.

        Sorry guys, But we actually have no allies left. The Greeks have paid off the Bulgarians, And our own Zaev Government. We know the Greeks own the American CIA Government. And we know that the CIA, Own and Run Kosovo. So our last ally is Serbia, to the North. Sounds Like i don’t know what Im talking about.
        But when your neighbors are all paid off!! (except 1). I say Don’t be Anti serb.
        Yess Billy you are 100% correct.
