Will NATO answer for crimes in Yugoslavia – Rossiyskaya Gazeta


By the end of January, five lawsuits will be filed against individual NATO member countries for the use of depleted uranium munitions by their aircraft during the criminal bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) in 1999, lawyer Srdjan Aleksic said.

“We have evidence, positions of forensic experts, evidence from the International Court of Justice in Strasbourg, sentences against Turkey and the UK. It is absolutely clear that all our citizens who were and fell ill in Kosovo and Metohija continue to be ill today. They will be entitled to compensation damage, “- said the lawyer on the air of the TV channel” Prva “.

Serbian specialists are actively assisted by their Italian colleagues, who have been able to prove a direct link between the use of depleted uranium and the oncological diseases of the Italian military, who spent three months in Kosovo and Metohija. As a result, 43 sentences were passed in Rome, providing for compensation for damage to persons who participated in “peacekeeping” missions in the Balkans.

US and NATO defensive line

It should be borne in mind that American officials have their own particular point of view regarding the high level of cancer in Serbia. According to senior State Department officials, the cause should be sought in the country’s aging population, genetics, a large number of people leading unhealthy lifestyles, as well as environmental problems, in particular uncontrolled landfills with hazardous and carcinogenic waste. Also noteworthy is the position of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who hypocritically stated that the consequences of the use of depleted uranium munitions during the bombing of the Republika Srpska and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia “do not pose a significant health risk.” “NATO takes health and the environment very seriously,” he said in an interview with the Serbian newspaper Kurir. “Therefore, NATO created a Commission on Depleted Uranium in 2001 … Based on the evidence gathered, the Commission concluded that NATO’s use of depleted uranium during the conflict in Kosovo did not provoke any long-term health risks.Experts from the United Nations Environment Program in 2001 also concluded that the area bombed with depleted uranium munitions did not pose a significant health risk. nothing has changed since 2001. “

Expert review

The Rossiyskaya Gazeta correspondent decided to understand the essence of the charges against the alliance and spoke with one of the leaders of the movement to collect scientific evidence of NATO atrocities – neurosurgeon, head of the neuro-oncology department of the Serbian clinical center Danica Gruicic.

“It should be borne in mind that a thorough scientific study of the effects of the bombing has not yet been completed,” she said. “The data we are working with is based on information collected by experts in various fields during aggression, doctors during patient treatment and observation. according to the latest information we have, in Serbia in 2018 there were more than 58,000 patients diagnosed with malignant tumors that were not observed in 2017, and even worse, this is probably not the final number. Serbia has two and a half times more children than the European average suffering from malignant tumors. The conclusion is unambiguous: something happened in Serbia, which was not in Europe. The only incident that could provoke such a spread of the disease – This is NATO aggression.The situation is similar in the Republika Srpska, but due to the situation in 1995 and the consequences of the civil war that attacked Bosnia, there were no conditions for a more detailed analysis there. But let me give you an example of the village of Khadzhichi. During the bombing of the site, the Serbs lived there and fired at it with depleted uranium rockets. The Serbs who lived there in a short time received huge doses of radiation, moved to Bratunac and its environs and died in large numbers a few years later due to mainly cancer. Then, after the war, the Bosnians moved to the area, receiving lower doses of radiation for a longer period of time. What happens to the Bosnians living in the area is best known by their doctors, who, unfortunately, are reluctant to talk about it. According to unofficial data, the number of leukemias is currently increasing in this region, especially in children. It is noteworthy that the same fate befell the Albanians in Kosovo and Metohija. And that is exactly what we base our conclusions on, that it was a regional ecological catastrophe that did not choose nation, religion or political beliefs. “

In this regard, the doctor comes to the following conclusion: “Genocide and NATO malice is reflected in the fact that they knew what they were doing, and our region and the people here were used by them to conduct an experiment. At first they denied the use of depleted uranium munitions while our the army did not find them. Then I ask how harmless it is, as their lobbyists claim, although it is clear what kind of ammunition they are talking about. Of course, it matters, and they also know about it! That is why it is important to study in detail the consequences of the bombing. In addition to the growth in the number of cancers, we have recorded an increase in the number of autoimmune diseases, infertility, and malformations. “

The opinion of a Russian scientist

Yelena Ponomareva, Doctor of Political Science, MGIMO professor, said in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta that the aggression of NATO countries against the FRY is on a par with the atrocities of the Nazis and should never be forgotten. Only in this way will we be able to protect ourselves, our children, our country from recurrence of violence, break out of the impasse of unipolarity, where the US-NATO bloc is trying to drive us and our historical allies, the Serbs, the expert said.

“NATO’s aggression against the FRY was the final stage of the strategy to reformat the world system and establish total control of the integral West and its hegemon – the United States – in the Balkans,” she said. “Plans to destroy Yugoslavia as the richest and most strategically important state in the region were hatched in Bely’s offices. at home and the CIA long before 1999. Here are just a few facts: For example, in early 1984, under the heading “top secret”, the Ronald Reagan administration issued SNB directive No. 133 “US policy towards Yugoslavia”, containing a “quiet revolution” strategy aimed at the overthrow of the communist governments and “the return of the countries of Eastern Europe to the orbit of the world market.” In other words, it was about creating the most favorable conditions for Western countries and transnational corporations to exploit the resources of countries that were not yet included in the orbit of capitalism. Among the geopolitical reasons for aggression, the most important is turning the US into more than just a “demo the crater of the “Balkan countries, but also the establishment of a full American protectorate in this region.”

Elena Ponomareva draws attention to the fact that the NATO aggression is a vivid example of the implementation of the “controlled chaos” strategy by the West, one of the first cases when the United States began exporting geopolitical instability to Eurasia. “Yugoslavia was not only bombed into the Stone Age, destroying industry and infrastructure, but also used as a springboard for testing new technologies of political upheavals: it was from the Balkans, more precisely from Belgrade (October 2000), that a series of so-called” color revolutions “began, swept through the post-Soviet space, – the professor states. – And, finally, the most important thing: Aggressive methods of pursuing their interests are a direct blow to those peoples that the West, and above all the Anglo-Saxons, traditionally for centuries consider the most dangerous for themselves in civilization and geopolitical plans – Orthodox Serbs and Russians. “
