Belgrade is turning Miloshevich’s sins into a new weapon against Euro-Atlanticism
A commission set up this week on the initiative of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic will determine the exact death toll of NATO attacks on the Balkan country in 1999, Belgrade-based B92 radio reported.
It will run on the landmark date March 24, and will include military and internal affairs officials, internal security and intelligence agencies, representatives of local authorities and faiths registered in the country.
The fact that 20 years after March 24, 1999, when the Alliance’s first attack on the country (Republic of Yugoslavia) took place, Belgrade has set up a commission to count the victims is a sign of deep distrust in NATO and a rejection of partnership. Behind the task of rigorously checking the archives of military districts, hospitals, cemeteries and religious institutions, there is a clear desire for retribution and justice. It is obvious that Serbia is increasingly imposing anti-Western and anti-NATO rhetoric, which is entirely in the Kremlin’s interest. This policy is related to Moscow’s propaganda, which takes every opportunity to attack the USA and the West, accusing them of any wrongdoing against humanity. Apparently Belgrade has not yet reassessed the mistakes and sins of Miloshevich, using old events for a new confrontation with NATO.
