“If the truth reveals that Sarajevo in the period 1992-1995 was not besieged, but divided: there was a hard inner circle in the city that did not allow civilians to leave Sarajevo, where the Serbian population was subjected to a mass terror, then the whole myth can be dispelled. And behind him and everything else, ”said the authoritative historian.

Draga Mastilovic pointed out that throughout the 20th century and at this historical point, the efforts of the West have been focused on fighting against Orthodoxy. “We observe a similar policy with regard to the positions of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Macedonia and Montenegro, the Russian Orthodox Church – in Ukraine,” he stressed. “This is a unique long-term project. It is also obvious that Yugoslavia was destroyed by the efforts of the West. There is no doubt about it.
The historian drew attention to the fact that the republics that emerged from the ruins of the Yugoslav state were conceived and recognized by Western power centers, although it was clear that this would lead to a series of inter-ethnic conflicts and bloody religious. in the Balkan region.
“On March 1, 1992, the first blood was shed – Serbian, the war began in Bosnia and Herzegovina,” the scientist recalled. “The West could stop the impending catastrophe, but did not. Someone in Washington needed an armed conflict, following which we received BiH, which has a state structure in accordance with the Dayton agreement of 1995. The same could be achieved in 1992 without war, all parties were ready to divide BiH along ethnic lines, Bosnian Muslims Aliya Izetbegovic even initially agreed to accept the treaty of Lisbon. However, the American ambassador in Belgrade, Warren Zimmerman, convinced Izetbegovic, which led to war. Today we are witnessing a similar situation in Ukraine.

Momo Kapor (1937 – 2010), a recognized classic of world literature, who covered them as a war correspondent for the publication Politika, became a chronicler of the events of the Southern conflict period in Sarajevo. He writes: “The shooting of the matchmakers in front of the old Orthodox church in Sarajevo on Sunday, March 1, 1992, marked the beginning of the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which, like the Second World War in Yugoslavia, began in April 6 to last nearly four years.”
“I saw my hometown only in nightmares or through binoculars from the first lines of defense in Trebevič, from the trench where, driven by morbid curiosity, I appeared as a war reporter,” noted the author, pointing out that the Serbs had been expelled from Sarajevo and in front of the whole world “were exposed as a savage horde, which everyone has the right to shoot or bombard with impunity if he tries to defend himself”.
“Everyone is against them: the mujahideen who have fled from all over the Muslim world, the veterans of the Islamic revolution in Iran, the militants in Algeria and Turkey (even the Kurds who have been fighting for their own state for centuries), Ustashi trained at the training grounds of Australia, American military instructors, dogs of war – mercenaries from Britain, Germany and France, who were guarded from the skies by air force the deadliest and most modern of the North Atlantic Alliance,” said the writer, summarizing that “although the military fire was extinguished by the thick rubber soles of the boots of other soldiers, there had enough heat under the ashes to set this city ablaze again – “the hotbed of all wars”.
