Default Documents of Macedonian Immigration

These are excerpts of documents from the Russian imperial government in 18th century AD, showing the presence of the Macedonian nation in imperial Russia's territory and military units.
This is just another reply to all those who claim that the Macedonian nation is not Macedonian and that it has been "invented" within Yugoslavia.
These documents (their sources are also given, for reference) clearly state that the Macedonian nation was mentioned as existing alongside the Serbian, Bulgarian and Vlach nations (but not as being a part of either of those) two centuries before Yugoslavia existed.
