But to many, including Macedonia's opposition Social Democrats, the statue clearly portrays a controversial senior member of the Ottoman and post-Ottoman era VMRO nationalist organization - whose memory they revile.
Official historians have long condemned Todor Aleksadrov as “the biggest traitor to the Macedonian cause” for his pro-Bulgarian views, while others have called him “Head-cutter” for his alleged involvement in many assassinations of other VMRO members and other political and military figures of the time.
But others refer to him as “the soul and the brain of the Macedonian resistance” and as “Macedonia's Robin Hood”, attributing to him remarkable organizational skills and will."
The confusion is total in FYROM!
They don´t even know if Todor Aleksandrov was a trator or a hero!!
Pathetic liar mongols. Can´t handkle the truth!
