BELGRADE, June 28. /TASS/. None of the initiators of the 1999 NATO aggression against Yugoslavia ever was ever brought to account, spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said on Monday in an interview with Serbia’s Kurir newspaper. 

“The task of people who know history is to always remember it and never let this period vanish in oblivion. The NATO aggression against your country that took place in 1999 was accompanied by many deaths, a lot of innocent people died, including children. Nobody ever bore any responsibility for it. It is lamentable that only rarely can you hear words of regret from some Western politicians,” she said.

NATO’s aggression against Yugoslavia began on March 24, 1999, and continued for 78 days. The operation, dubbed Allied Force, cited “the prevention of the genocide of Albanians in Kosovo” as its main cause. According to NATO’s statistics, warplanes of the alliance carried out 38,000 sorties during the operation, including 10,000 bombing runs.

According to Serbian officials, the bombing resulted in deaths of 3,500 to 4,000 people, while some 10,000 people were injured. Two thirds of the victims were civilians. The material damages amounted up to $100 billion. During the three months of the bombing, NATO dropped 15 tonnes of depleted uranium as bombs. After that, Serbia registered the biggest number of cancer diseases in Europe. In the first 10 years after the bombings, some 30,000 Serbian citizens were diagnosed with cancer, and between 10,000 and 18,000 of them died.

    Let’s put this into perspective. Nazi Russia have killed 4 times the amount of Ukrainians in Ukraine since 2014.

    “Numerous war crimes were committed by Serbian military and Serbian paramilitary forces during the Yugoslav Wars. The crimes included massacres, ethnic cleansing, systematic rape, crimes against humanity and genocide.”
    Wiki
    Maybe this has something to do with the fact that NATO reacted aggressively? Of course, massacres, ethnic cleansing, systematic rape, crimes against humanity and genocide are mafia specialties and to them are no reasons to interfere. To them, it is time to interfere when people merely dispose of a Ruskie puppet.

    • Serbia did indeed behave like their nazi master putler. Emphasis is made on the massacres of Muslim men and boys by Serbia, but actually they committed genocide in Croatia too. Croatians are Catholics. My parents visited Croatia and traveled around. They were told in detail of the atrocities committed by the Serbs on them. Hatred for Serbs is intense in those parts.

  • Because of their genocide in Bosnia Serbia knew they had an ass whoppin’ coming.
    And we knew we were going to give it to them.
    Compared to the carnage they caused in Bosnia and Croatia the Serbs got off easy.
    They should quit whining like little girls.
