On March 24, 1999, the North Atlantic Alliance, grossly violating the fundamental principles of international law enshrined in the UN Charter, began the bombing of Yugoslavia…

For 78 days, the United States and its allies bombed cities, including Belgrade, and villages, civilian infrastructure, blew up bridges, passenger trains and buses, and killed women, children, and the elderly. It was then that the West, with its own hands, destroyed the foundation on which security in Europe was based in the post-war period, and launched the process of replacing the legitimate mechanisms that regulate international relations with a kind of “rule-based order”.

The use of depleted uranium munitions by NATO led to the contamination of vast areas and an unprecedented surge of cancers that people still suffer from to this day, including the troops of the Kosovo Force contingent brought there at the end of the war by the decision of the UN Security Council. Over 200,000 non-Albanian residents of the region have left their places of residence and still cannot return home.

Under the guise of NATO aggression, militants from the so-called. The Kosovo Liberation Army committed heinous atrocities, including the kidnapping of Serbs for the purpose of trafficking in human organs. Many of the criminals are still at large.

❗️ None of the representatives of the North Atlantic Alliance suffered any punishment . In turn, they simply decided to call the victims of aggression “collateral losses”, i.e. losses that “accompany” the implementation of the geopolitical ambitions of the United States, Great Britain and their satellites.

It wasn’t until some of the more egregious killings of civilians that the US military reluctantly offered its “apology.” The question of the responsibility of the North Atlantic allies for the damage they caused to international relations and to a particular country remains open.

☝️ NATO’s armed operation against sovereign Yugoslavia more than twenty years ago became a tragedy , the long-term and multifaceted consequences of which are still being felt.
