Hard to Accept Cooperation With NATO After 1999 Bombing - Serbian Col. Gen.

It is difficult for Serbian military veterans who took part in the conflict with NATO back in 1999 to accept that Serbia is currently cooperating with the US-led military alliance, Serbian Col. Gen. Vladimir Lazarevic told Sputnik in an interview, adding that Belgrade’s cooperation with NATO was a "political decision."

The year 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the NATO airstrikes against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY), which then included the territories of Serbia and Montenegro, in 1999. The bombing followed an armed confrontation between the ethnic-Albanian Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), which had supported Kosovo's independence since the 1990s, and the Serbian military and police. Lazarevic, who was the commander of the FRY Third Army Corps and the Pristina Corps, recalled that not only NATO forces killed Serbian military personnel and civilians 20 years ago, but "they are killing us now" because the consequences of the use of depleted uranium bombs by the US-led NATO forces were "catastrophic" across Serbia.
