THREAD In 1995 after #Oluja I reported from #Bosnia on #Serb refugees fleeing #Croatia.
A guy, 25 driving a tractor loaded w/ women & children shouts: “Hey, jounalist, remember me?” I didn’t. “In July 91 [after Struga massacre] you told my commander ‘your parastate [#Krajina] /2
2/ can’t exist, you should find a way to reconcile with #Croatia, it is your country'. They kept telling us we’ll never lose, that Serbia is behind us, but as time went on I oft thought about your words. I sensed you were right & we were headed for our own destruction”. Then & /3
3/ there I had nothing to tell him. Every refugee said “our own army ordered us to head away from home”. It was a cynical calculation by Serb leadership (I cannot claim whether Croatian Serbs decided on their own or if Milošević & the Karadžić lot from Bosnia influenced it). /4

MELISA VITEŠKIĆ was killed on 16 October 1992. She was with her father Edhem trying to get across the runway when the #Serb Forces shot her in the head.

Melisa was 12 years old.

#SniperAlley #BosnianGenocide
Melisa's father described the details of her murder:
"Since the barricades in the city [April 1992], even in Ilidza, she lived with her sister and mother at her aunt’s and uncle’s place in ‘Bratstva i Jedinstva’ street, Pofalici, for security reasons.
It was not safe in Butmir. She had already lived in the city for 6 months and they were running out of food and I as a father stayed in Butmir to defend the frontlines of defense. So I decided to go get them across the runway to Butmir to make life easier for them

#Croatia|n 🇭🇷 president Zoran Milanovic @Ured_PRH returns war decorations to notorious war criminal and terrorist Branimir Glavas. With this, he invalidated former President Ivo Josipovic's decision on the stripping of #Glavas war medals. ⤵️
In late November 2019, Glavas, who was still standing trial for war crimes, supported with his signature Milanovic’s presidential candidacy in #Osijek. ⤵️
Later that day, Milanovic, who was the Social Democratic Party #SDP candidate for the #Croatia|n 🇭🇷 president, said that he distanced himself from the support expressed for his presidential bid by Branimir Glavas since he is not his "company". ⤵️

Let's start a #Serbian & #Yugoslav map thread.
Here I'll share the best material I compiled over 3 years about the #History of #Serbia & #Yugoslavia.
Let's start with a map of companies implanted in SFR.Yugoslavia.🏭
57 are detailed in the link provided.👇

2. Here comes a #Yugoslav map for foodies.
Unlike for companies, the destruction of #Yugoslavia didn't change the local specialties, which remain the delight of all locals & visitors.
#Meatlovers are like fish in water there, & back in #France I dearly miss ćevap & pljeskavica!🥺 Image
3. Here are 2 pseudo #tourism-maps of #Yugoslavia, respectively made by locals & #Americans.
I wish we helped, as requested, to conserve & protect this #beauty.🕯️
As a citizen of a #NATO country, & especially as a #French, I'm sorry we didn't, even if most of this still exists.🙏 ImageImage

THREAD As I have my #Bosnia #War diaries out & it's 28 years from 1st #UnitedNations food convoy into #Srebrenica, 6 months under siege:
On 25/11/1992 UN French Gen Morillon announces a convoy with 150 tons of food, some of it also to go to #Serb town of Bratunac, not besieged /2
2/ 26/11 UN convoy reaches Bratunac, is met by "spontaneous resistance" by local Serbs (some bussed in from Serbia across Drina river). Bosnian Serb military commanders declare themself helpless as "people are democratically expressing their anger at UN feeding enemy 'Turks'"/3
3/ 27/11 Same "spontaneity" again. Several hundred "local widows" telling UN (in same phrases) they will not let them through. Dutch convoy commander arrogant & incompetent, Beligian Army truckies helpless, Ukrainian escort disinterested, BSArmy saying cannot oppose people. /4

Around 3000 BCE in eastern #Europe, a Proto-Balto-Slavic #language started to diverge from #ProtoIndoEuropean.

The #Slavic branch of the #IndoEuropean #languages began about 2,000 years later when Proto-Slavic deviated from Proto-Balto-Slavic.
