Zakharova reminded NATO how in 1999 the alliance explained the bombing of the energy infrastructure of Yugoslavia

Maria Zakharova, spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, commented on NATO's "reflection" on Russian strikes on the regime's energy infrastructure in Ukraine. Recall that the North Atlantic Alliance has recently begun to increasingly accuse Russia of launching missile strikes on “civilian” objects, which are understood to be generating and distributing electric power capacities.


To understand the situation, Maria Zakharova reminded NATO functionaries and other “reflections” on this occasion of the events of 23 years ago in Yugoslavia, the bombing of which was carried out by NATO troops. The official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation in her TG channel, referring to Stoltenberg, Borrell and, as she put it, “Belodomovsky” for “memory”, cited an excerpt from a briefing by NATO press secretary J. Shia dated May 25, 1999 as an example. Then journalists asked Shia why NATO troops were depriving Yugoslavia of 70% of not only electricity, but also water supply.

From that briefing:

According to you, only military targets are being hit.

Maria Zakharova cites Jamie Shea's answer. A NATO spokesman points out that the operation of command posts and command and control also depends on the availability of electricity.


J. Shia in 1999:

If Milosevic really wants his citizens to have water and electricity, all he has to do is accept the NATO terms and we will stop this campaign. Until he does, we will continue to attack targets that supply his army with electricity. If this will have consequences for the population, this is their problem. Water supply and electricity are being used against the people of Serbia, we have "cut off" them forever or for a long time for the sake of the lives of 1,6 million Kosovars who have been driven from their homes and whose lives have been seriously damaged. Not everyone will like this difference, but for me this difference is fundamental.

Of course, today NATO clearly would like these words to “not come up” in connection with the events in Ukraine, but Maria Zakharova reminded the whole world of them. Earlier, NATO officials were reminded of how NATO troops bombed the building of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade.

But for NATO, the “logic” in such cases is the same: “You don’t understand, it’s different ...” But the whole problem for NATO and the same Kyiv regime is that more and more people in the world today understand everything perfectly.

      It's a shame, not a shame, but it's quite possible to plug the mouth of lousy jackals.

        It seems that for a long time now, any demarches of Russian diplomacy and press attaches, in the "West" have not been paying attention at all, because these are only air tremors and nothing more ...

          Yes, this idea is really strongly pushed by the cissists. However, "demarches" against the supply of missiles with a range of 500 km to Bandera's people are still being paid attention. And the "demarche" that we won't sell oil for $50 was also noticed. And the words of your Zelya, who swore that a Russian, and not a Bandera, rocket had hit the Polish tractor, were really considered "air shaking." But you work off your hryvnia, well done.

        Enough of this tolerant impotence of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is necessary to face and convincingly call European sworn partners fascists.
        A fascist, he is a fascist in Africa too.

      Biden especially blushed with shame, yeah. After all, it was he who ordered the bombing of Belgrade, he himself admitted waving his pen.

    IMHO, such trolling is not for Maria Lavrov Peskov to be voiced, but for Putin it is necessary, and what kind of press conference or meeting to match IT with the air is not for long. The effect will simply be greater. And few people watch the statements of the Foreign Ministry and broadcast them at home. Who is listening to the Iranian Foreign Ministry's online briefings? -That's what I'm talking about too.

    Well, the United States itself, through the mouth of Press Secretary Shia, explained why Russia is bombing Ukrainian power plants - we “turned off” them forever or for a long time for the sake of the lives of the inhabitants of Donbass

    cited as an example an excerpt from a briefing by NATO press secretary J. Shia dated May 25, 1999
    This is of course different. I remember the covers of Western magazines of that time - against the backdrop of an explosion in the city, the inscription reads: "Bringing the Serbs into obedience. Massive bombings open the door to peace". Here we are opening the door to the world. And Stoltenberg, Borrell and others like them just need to be silent in a rag.

    So are we working with NATO methods?! they are satanists, sodomites and so on?! Or what "people in the world" should understand from this strange response of Russian diplomacy?

    The striped ones consider it the norm - humanitarian intervention (Vietnam, Iraq, Yugoslavia, etc.), for us, the NWO - the fight against Nazism on the outskirts - is different, and the methods are all good, they only led to Victory. No one condemned I. Stalin for the bombing of Berlin in 1941, but they didn’t dismantle it there - a substation, a water pump .....

    To be fair, the alliance didn't do this for ten months. The tail was not cut in pieces.
    Everything is clear. Planned. Come in. Made. We got the result. Gone.

      In fairness, the leadership of Serbia did not give a damn about its people. For Zelensky and the Ukrainian leadership, Ukrainians are expendable meat, they are ready to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian, or as ordered from Washington.

      In general, I agree with you. NATO knew why they were going: to knock out the Serbs from Kosovo, to break their spirit, to create a NATO outpost in the region and a projection of their strength, to guarantee the elimination of Russian influence in the Balkans. The US/NATO set a goal, NATO achieved it despite all the sacrifices. The United States and NATO do not care about other people's victims. Ours played Leopold's cats, flirted with "respected partners" and everyone hoped that everything would somehow resolve itself or on the sanity of Svidomo, constantly hoping for some kind of negotiations, the sanity of the Kyiv regime and the ability to negotiate Kyiv / the West.

    That's who prevented the release of this text verbatim, in English, but with your signature? Whenever "the whole civilized world" starts to discuss and condemn this, then give a link to the source! angry

    I don't understand why the president of Russia is silent? It is high time for him, and not the Russian Foreign Ministry, to present an ultimatum to Zelensky and his Armed Forces of Ukraine. In 1999, NATO clearly presented an ultimatum to Milosevic and justified the bombing of power plants in Yugoslavia. Why are we silent??????????

    The trouble is that Western officials know and understand everything perfectly! It's just that in Western "culture" it's not customary to express one's opinion at work. So they will carry any nonsense lowered from above, afraid of losing a profitable place, a comfortable chair and becoming an outcast, a traitor, an object of repression and ridicule. The reference to the Yugoslav events may be of interest to ordinary people who have not turned on the “completely different thing” mode in their heads for peace of mind in conditions of total pressure.

    Yes, at least a hundred times remind! What is allowed to Jupiter is not allowed to the bull! Russia and the USSR have been demonized and dehumanized for so many years, is it possible that after the words of Zakharova they will begin to repent and sprinkle ashes on their hair?
