16th anniversary of NATO's 1999 intervention in Serbia: NATO, EU, Kosovo and US flags burned at Serbia rally (video)

Hundreds of demonstrators have staged a protest in Belgrade to mark the 16th anniversary of NATO's 1999 intervention in Serbia.

Flags representing the EU, NATO, Kosovo and U.S. were burned as about 700 people attended the rally staged by the Serbian Radical Party in the Serbian capital on Tuesday.

Protesters shouted slogans saying Serbia will not join NATO nor will the alliance's troops will be accepted on Serbian territory.

Vojislav Seselj, currently awaiting the verdict in his trial on war crimes charges at the International Criminal Court for the Former Yugoslavia in the Netherlands, said in a speech to the crowds that his party wanted to display their feelings on Kosovo in a symbolic way and said NATO had bombed the Republika Srpska - one of two entities of Bosnia and Herzegovina - and occupied Serbian territory.

He said: "NATO bombed the Serbs in the Republika Srpska and today is occupying and threatening its survival. We will preserve the republic of Srpska at all costs and enable the conditions for it to merge with Serbia."

"NATO killed our children, our civilians, soldiers and police and then occupied the holy Serbian land."

"We will eventually liberate Kosovo and Metohija and our border with Albania," he added.

 Military intervention

NATO's bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, which lasted from March 24 to June 1, 1999, was the final phase of the Kosovo War (1996-1999).

It represents NATO's second most important military engagement after its forces began the military intervention in Bosnia and Herzegovina on Aug. 30, 1995.

The attacks are estimated to have damaged infrastructure worth about $30 billion including industrial facilities, schools, health institutions, media houses, monuments, churches and monasteries.

The final number of victims has not officially been released, but estimates have put the number at between 1,200 and 2,500 killed and 5,000 wounded.

The attacks were completed after the signing of the Military Technical Agreement on the withdrawal of the Yugoslav army and police from Kosovo and Metohija, on 10 June.

On the same day, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1244 under which Kosovo became an international protectorate under the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo and the Kosovo Force.
  •  Radicals protest, burn EU, U.S., NATO flags ...

BELGRADE -- Supporters of the Serb Radical Party (SRS) on Tuesday staged a protest in Belgrade when they burned flags of NATO, the EU, the United States, and Kosovo.

The protest was held in front of the General Staff building in Belgrade that was destroyed in the NATO bombing that started this day 16 years ago.
Party leader Vojislav Seselj addressed those gathered to say that Serbia must never join either NATO or the EU, "although the treasonous regime of Aleksandar Vucic is working on it."

"We wished to symbolically mark (the anniversary of) the start of the aggression, and the regime banned the gathering. Vucic's regime is like a toothless witch, it would gladly bite, but has no teeth, so there are no policemen here today, while we were ready to be arrested and beaten," he said.

According to him, each regime that has been in power in Serbia after October 5, 2000, was in effect "NATO infantry that pillaged the country, and when they lost strength, NATO sent the Progressive traitors to finish what was started with the bombing."

Seselj was referring to the ruling Serb Progressive Party (SNS), now led by Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic, that in 2008 split from the Radicals, who are currently not represented in parliament.

The SRS leader added that his party "will never accept the made-up independence of Kosovo":

"We will liberate Kosmet (Kosovo and Metohija) sooner or later, our army will be on the border with Albania. One day we will liberate the Republic of Serb Krajina (in Croatia), we will preserve at all costs the Serb Republic (in Bosnia), and will return Montenegro - taken away from the Serbdom by the West with the help of Milo Djukanovic - to a united Serb state," Seselj said.

His party deputy, Nemanja Sarovic, also spoke to say that by banning Tuesday's protests, Vucic's "treasonous regime" wished to remove "any trace of resistance to the new regime that the West wants to establish in Serbia."

"The fact that the Serbian government hired murderer and monster Tony Blair is a disgrace the Serbian people never saw before," said Sarovic, adding that the image of the ruins of the General Staff represented an image of Serbia "with its one million unemployed people and debt of 26 billion that is constantly growing."

Tanjug quoted Sarovic as saying that "the only way out" for the country was "in a radical change of policy and a u-turn towards Russia."

After the speeches, the rally's participants marched through the central Belgrade streets carrying party flags and flags of Serbia, Russia, and the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk.

  1. Héritage de l'Otan: la Serbie première en Europe pour le nombre de cancéreux...

    Avec 5.500 cas de cancer enregistrés pour un million d'habitants, la Serbie arrive en première position en Europe pour le nombre de décès dus au cancer...

    L'opération militaire de l'Otan contre la Yougoslavie a fait jusqu'à 2.500 morts. Mais il ne s'agit là que d'un préjudice direct. Les avions de l'Otan ont largué près de 15 tonnes d'uranium appauvri sur le territoire serbe. La période radioactive de l'uranium est de 4,5 milliards d'années. Depuis les bombardements otaniens, les experts ont également découvert en Serbie des traces de plutonium dont la "longévité" atteint 24.000 ans.

    Deux mois et demi après les bombardements, des spécialistes grecs ont constaté une augmentation de la radioactivité en Grèce en moyenne de 20% à 30%.

    Les spécialistes serbes rappellent pour leur part que même une faible dose de radiation suffit à déclencher la transformation de cellules saines en cellules cancéreuses. Un autre risque consiste dans la mutation génétique qui entraîne la naissance d'enfants présentant des incapacités mentales et physiques................http://fr.sputniknews.com/international/20150325/1015336847.html#ixzz3VQxQ7M1P

  2. Belgrade a signé avec l'Otan un accord autorisant les forces alliées à traverser librement le territoire serbe et à utiliser les infrastructures militaires du pays. Il y a 16 ans, les Américains ont exigé la conclusion d'un document similaire. Belgrade avait alors refusé. Quelques jours après, l'aviation US bombardait la Serbie...

    Le plan d'action individuel pour le partenariat (IPAP) signé début février entre la Serbie et l'Otan a été précédé de l'accord SOFA (Status of force agreement) prévoyant le libre passage des forces alliées à travers le territoire serbe et l'utilisation des infrastructures militaires du pays dans les intérêts de l'Alliance.

    Pour entrer en vigueur, cet accord doit être approuvé par le parlement serbe et signé par le président Tomislav Nikolic.

    "En signant l'IPAP, nous avons atteint le plus haut niveau possible de coopération avec l'Otan", a déclaré à l'agence Sputnik l'assistant du ministre serbe des Affaires étrangères Branimir Filipovic. Il a rappelé que l'accord SOFA avait été signé par le ministre serbe de la Défense Bratislav Gasic en janvier 2015.................http://fr.sputniknews.com/international/20150326/1015352035.html#ixzz3VVZpp0lp

  3. Außenminister Dacic: Serben können der Nato die Bombenangriffe nicht vergessen...

    Auch nach der Unterzeichnung des Individuellen Partnerschaftsaktionsplans (IPAP) mit der Nato hat Serbien weiterhin nicht vor, dem Bündnis beizutreten. Laut Außenminister Ivica Dacic stehen die Serben wegen der Erinnerungen an die Bombenangriffe von 1999 der Nato ablehnend gegenüber.

    „Serbien wahrt weiter die militärische Neutralität. Dies hat das serbische Parlament beschlossen“, sagte Dacic in einem Exklusivinterview für RIA Novosti. „Das bedeutet, dass Serbien mit verschiedenen militärischen Organisationen wie der Nato und der OVKS (Sicherheitsbündnis ehemaliger Sowjetrepubliken– Red.) zusammenarbeitet, ohne diesen beizutreten.“

    Serbien wolle eine Partnerschaft mit der Nato, jedoch keine Mitgliedschaft, betonte Dacic. Nach seinen Worten steht die serbische Öffentlichkeit der Nato ablehnend gegenüber. „Die historischen Erfahrungen, die Bombenangriffe auf Serbien sind der Hauptgrund für die negative Haltung der serbischen Bürger.“......http://de.sputniknews.com/politik/20150407/301815316.html#ixzz3We9DpYBP
