“This is Aleksandar Siljanovski. My father. He is the inspiration for my nomination. Aleksandar joined the NLW when he was 19. He was a fighter in the Macedonian-Kosovo shock brigade, a courier of Petar Brajević, a participant in the February campaign and a delegate at the Youth Congress in Fushtani, Aegean Macedonia. He wears 3 orders on the photo. One for the liberation of Kicevo (the first liberated city in Macedonia) and two for the fights in the February campaign. Aleksandar fought for the Macedonian state! I will not deviate from his path,” Siljanovska – Davkova wrote on Facebook.
