Harsh words about NATO from Serbian officials at wreath-laying ceremony Izvor: Beoinfo

Wreaths were laid by Serbian government and Belgrade city officials on Wednesday at a memorial to Guards Brigade troops and patients killed when the KBC Dragisa Misovic hospital was bombed during the NATO air campaign in 1999.

Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin told the wreath-laying ceremony that NATO committed a war crime when the seven Guards Brigade troops and seven hospital patients were killed. “Twenty one years ago, without a decision by the UN Security Council and with no human, political, reasonable or unreasonable justification, NATO bombed FR Yugoslavia and did not care who it killed. It has been 21 years since then and we have not heard the word sorry,” Vulin said. He said that nothing can bring these people back but that an apology could help prevent others going through the same thing. “That is why Serbia has chosen to remember and not forget,” the minister said.  

Belgrade’s assistant Mayor Andrija Mladenovic recalled that NATO bombed various targets but added that “when a hospital in the center of town was hit it was clear to us all that the goal was to humiliate and destroy us”.
