A series of monstrous substitutions and falsifications are taking place in North Macedonia. This is the main approach used by philologists, men of letters, journalists and public figures in that country since 1944, Professor Anna Kocheva from the Institute for Bulgarian Language with the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, said for BNR.

A new book named “White paper on the language dispute with North Macedonia” describes a number of such substitutions. Hristo Botev’s poem “On parting”, published as “a Macedonian folk song without an author”, is among them. The book will be translated in many languages, Professor Anna Kocheva specified.
