The Bulgarian MEP Angel Dzhambazki said in an interview for Bulgarian web portal Epicentar.bg that Goce Delcev is Bulgarian and that the state of Macedonia is in fact a second Bulgarian state in the Balkans. “There was no Macedonian state or nation before 2 August 1944. On that day, a bunch of Bulgarian Bolsheviks and traitors gathered in the cellar of the Prohor Pchinski Monastery, and under the auspices of Moscow, create the so-called declaration for an Anti-fascist Assembly of Macedonia (ASNOM). This idea was supported by the communist centres of power in Serbia, Bulgaria and even in Greece. This is a clear proof that this is a massive forgery of history, and that the people living in present-day Macedonia are without any doubt Bulgarian,” Dzhambazki stated.
