"The words of the President of the Czech Republic will be included in the history books": Vucic commented on Zeman's public apology for the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia

58

The press service of the President of the Czech Republic Milos Zeman confirms the information on the topic of NATO bombing, which was raised during a meeting with his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic. Zeman's spokesman notes that the Czech president, in the presence of President Vucic, made words of public apology for the fact that the North Atlantic military bloc in 1999 bombed Belgrade and other cities in the country that was then called Yugoslavia. Let us recall that the bombings were carried out from March to June 1999 and were motivated by Washington, London and Brussels, allegedly by the commission of "the Serbian regime and military personnel of war crimes in the province of Kosovo."


Zeman during Vucic's visit to the Czech Republic:

I apologize to the entire Serbian people for the events that took place in 1999, for the bombing of the country's territory, which led to grave consequences.

According to Zeman, he greatly appreciates Vucic's visit to Prague and recalls his visit to Belgrade.

Zeman:

I really hope that before the end of my presidential mandate, I will be able to see this beautiful city again.

An important nuance in this situation is that the Czech Republic was admitted to NATO on March 12 - less than two weeks before the start of NATO attacks on Belgrade. However, Milos Zeman, despite the fact that the role of the Czech Republic in those events was still not the largest, found the courage (unlike most other leaders of the countries of the Western military bloc) to admit guilt and publicly apologize.

Alexander Vucic, in response to the words of Milos Zeman, thanked him, noting that from now on the Serbian people will consider the people of the Czech Republic truly fraternal.

Serbian President commenting on Zeman's statements:

The words of the Czech President will be included in textbooks. it historical moment. This is a bold decision by the Czech president.

Vucic added that before the meeting with Zeman, he did not know anything about the intentions of the President of the Czech Republic to apologize to the Serbs for the decisions taken by NATO countries.

          -Bearded: but no one listens to him in the unfriendly Czech Republic.
          At the time of the entry of the Czech Republic into NATO, almost 70% of the country's population were against it.
          The fact is (time proved) that in almost any society somewhere around 15% are honest people and scoundrels.
          Accordingly, the mood of the rest will depend (or be imposed) on the ruling elite.

      As Bush, the man and the aircraft carrier once said: "I will never apologize for the United States of America. It doesn't matter what the facts are "... The USA and conscience are diametrically opposed concepts! Zeman, one of the few who understood well enough that NATO is not freedom, but slavery, that the European Union is not a blessing, but an evil ... for the Czech Republic and others! Because this is no longer a state in full measure, but only geographical concepts - the world of globalism under the leadership of the Anglo-Saxons has absorbed their independence and independence, leaving only words behind which are worthless. Here he explained this, albeit allegorically, to Vucic - as long as Serbia is not included in any of the Anglo-Saxon entities - NATO and the EU, Serbia is a State!

    The only president of a NATO member country found the courage to apologize for the American-European lawlessness in Yugoslavia. Although, in principle, he had nothing to apologize for (the country joined NATO two weeks before). But the Americans and the countries of old Europe have something for that and not only for Yugoslavia. But you can't get it from them, just like you can't get an objective attitude to countries outside of their crowd.

    The President of the Czech Republic is popularly elected. And apparently, an honest and decent person. But alas, the power in the NATO countries is deliberately built in such a way that the president essentially decides nothing. And the governments of these countries are appointed, not elected. And they are appointed by Washington, not by the people.

      In the EU countries, the French president has strong power, and the Finnish president is quite strong. For the President of Poland, the amount of real power varies greatly depending on the presence or absence of reliance on the parliamentary majority. Romania is neither one nor the other, and neither a weak nor a strong president. In the rest of the EU republics, the power of the president is weak, regardless of the method of election. Most of the EU countries are parliamentary republics or parliamentary monarchies. Turkey, a NATO member, has very strong presidential powers after the constitutional change.

    Many thanks to the Czech Republic, that it was a little tight with bonbs and bombers, no daily news was sent to Belgrade.
    Zeman is cynical, "Sorry Daraga, it happened .... Nothing personal *.
    Vucic just had to be silent.
    And so he did.
    But the truth is, the SS-mans have less space.

    Zeman is a sober politician. But, unfortunately, he is not heard even in the Czech Republic, not to mention the whole of Europe. The president in the Czech Republic is a talking head with no powers. Zeman was against the demolition of Soviet monuments in the Czech Republic, but the decision of the local authorities is higher than the presidential desire. The same picture is with the explosion of the weapons warehouse. He stated that the explosion was organized to hide the traces of the theft of weapons, but his words went into the "sand".

      Zeman was against the demolition of Soviet monuments in the Czech Republic, but the decision of the local authorities is higher than the presidential desire.

      Dear Alexander hi one clarification, if you call! Probably you mean the monument to Marshal Konev in Prague? Yes? You have this topic covered not entirely objectified, or rather completely objectified! By the decision of the municipal authorities of the city district, the monument to Konev, transferred to the museum... There he will be in complete safety. The decision was taken at the local level and it is caused by the ambiguous attitude in the Czech Republic towards the marshal in view of his involvement in the suppression of the "Prague Spring" of 1968.
      In place of the monument, a memorial complex will be built in honor of the soldiers-liberators of the Soviet army! That is, the emphasis shifts from the personality of Marshal Konev, to those 200 thousand. ordinary Soviet soldiers who died for the liberation of Czechoslovakia from the Nazis! A competition is being prepared for the design of the memorial. This memorial complex itself will be much larger than the monument to Konev.
      Why don't you write about it ... request

    And what's the use of such an apology? Yugoslavia collapsed, Milosevic died in the dungeons of the EU, Kosovo was torn away from Serbia and placed there a US military base, the Serbs were defamed as a people, thousands of people died. And for all this "excuse me"? It looks like the apology of a recidivist criminal who sits in a restaurant, drinks and eats to his heart's content, and even openly scoffs at the Criminal Code.

      Yes, neither of which they essentially do not have. So, just a little clue, not even a pretender. He apologized on his own behalf, though for all NATO. Nato will then say, if anything, I and I ... we did not authorize him, he apologized to him and ask. In the meantime, this and that, he will also be trampled on from the presidents. And it turns out that this is an ordinary Czech, nothing more. And the Czech government will retrospectively disown his words.
