The Bulgarian military cemeteries near Kavadarci, North Macedonia, from the time of the First World War were probably destroyed in the 1930s by the then Yugoslav authorities. This was stated to BNT by Radoslav Simeonov, chief expert on military monuments at the Bulgarian Ministry of Defence.
Near the village of Drenovo close to kavaraci there were two Bulgarian military cemeteries with the bodily remains of 432 soldiers. The two monuments remain on the site of the cemetery near Drenovo, but the attitude of the North Macedonian authorities towards them is not flawless, the military expert pointed out. According to him, the physical survival of the two monuments is threatened by the newly built Skopje-Prilep highway.
