Watch this clip. It has the testimonies of Macedonians from Kruševo who were contemporaries of the Ilinden revolutionaries. One of the ladies makes reference to an event she attended where some of the leaders were gathered in a house to discuss the uprising. She said that an attendee exclaimed "Long live brotherly Bulgaria". Pitu Guli got up angrily and said "What brotherly Bulgaria! We came out for Macedonia. We didn't come out for brotherly Bulgaria!"

The individual that was chastised by Pitu Guli may have been one of those people that actually believed the lie that Bulgaria would militarily support the revolutionaries as they attempted to liberate Macedonia.
