Vojislav Seselj returns to Serbia

The Hague Tribunal after 12 years of preliminary detention released the Serbian politician Vojislav Seselj. Exclusively from "philanthropy" - for health reasons. However, Seselj himself says that he is going to Serbia not to be treated at all, but to revenge. And thanks for his release Russia.

Vojislav Seselj returns to Serbia

The merciless "humanism" of the West knows no bounds. Not long ago, the European Union lifted the sanctions against the last president of the former Yugoslavia Slobodan Milosevic. After 8 years after his strange death in the dungeons of the Hague Tribunal, he was given the right to move around Europe ... And now 60-year-old Serb Vojislav Seselj has been released from the same prison. Still alive. But also exclusively from "philanthropy" - for health reasons. And not at all, because the court had failed to prove his guilt even for the years of preliminary imprisonment, which even by the standards of this punitive institution 12 had taken.

During this time, however, he was sentenced three times, but each time only in minor matters: all for divulging the personalities of witnesses in books and publications. As for the "gentleman's recruitment" of elite defendants from the former Yugoslavia, the International Tribunal, actually, created for the massacre of the leaders of the Serbian resistance, could not get close to Sheselj. Incitement of ethnic hatred, genocide, torture, murder, deportation and other "bloodthirstiness" towards the Croats and Bosnians in the beginning of 90's - all the 14 points in his legal case remained just words. But they cripple. A few years ago, Šešelj in a cell suffered clinical death. Even then, his supporters in the radical party of Serbia decided that The Hague would return to the homeland of their leader in the same way as Milosevic. After that, oncology was also added to heart problems. But Seselj comes back home still not in the bag, although he feels himself a Count of Monte Cristo. Already made it clear: "Do not rush to bury us. We still have cases."

Seselj, who, in the times of his military youth, was also famous for sharp expressions of his enemies, and now has retained a battle primer. He says that he is going to Serbia not to be treated, but to revenge. Who, did not specify. Vojislav Sheshel from the same row as Slobodan Milosevic, Radovan Karadzic or Ratko Mladic. He also got into the "execution list" of the International Tribunal, as it is called in Serbia, for patriotism. However, in his prison stories everything was unique. Starting with the fact that he opened it voluntarily: the 2003 surrendered to The Hague in February, when the tribunal made the accusations public, one might say, on top of its glory. The worst days for his country were already behind, the best ones for him were just beginning. His radical party was a member of parliament, he himself, having already been vice-president, was thinking about promotion. He was at the peak of popularity and considered cowardice to hide. He went to court, as he said, so that he would not leave a stone unturned.

The process started only in November 2007. And then after the announcement of their hunger strike. The hearing ended in the 2010 year. But Seselj continued to keep locked up, in fact, simply because he is. And only a week ago, the tribunal decided to release him. According to the principle: send it while it is alive. Another death in prison without a sentence would have been overkill. He was condescendingly let go of dying. Although he may assume that all the same, as planned then, in 2003, he returns home as a winner.

After being released from prison of the Hague Tribunal, Vojislav Seselj expressed his gratitude to Russia in an exclusive interview with the correspondent of the Serbian editorial office of the Voice of Russia website.

“I am grateful to the Russian government for saving my life during the hunger strike that lasted 28 days. In The Hague, it seemed they had already agreed that I would die. But then the Russian Foreign Ministry made a rather tough statement, after which the Hague Tribunal immediately made concessions and accepted all six of my conditions for ending the hunger strike, ”said the Chairman of the Serbian Radical Party (PSA) Sheshel.

Russia got to its feet, according to Seselj, precisely with the coming to power of Putin. And Serbia’s efforts to get closer to Russia, which the country began to show even during the Yeltsin period, have intensified many times over. “Our only chance is a rapprochement with Russia. We want integration with Russia, as well as Belarus and Kazakhstan. We can save only integration with Russia. As always in history, Russia saved us in the most difficult situations, ”said the temporarily released.

Despite being in The Hague, Šešelj is well acquainted with the situation in Ukraine. “Now the pro-Nazi junta created by the West is in power in Kiev. PSA supports Donetsk and Lugansk. We want the whole of Ukraine to return its soul, return to the Slavic path, refuse from Euro-Atlantic integration, which will bring only death to both Ukrainians and Russians living in Ukraine, ”Seselj told journalists.

In The Hague, they can probably decide that they still completely cope with the task of punishing the leaders of the former Yugoslavia: Milosevic was taken to the grave, and Seselj was returned disabled.

By the way, the main condition for his release, the tribunal called his return to court for sentencing, the date of which is not determined.
Hoping, apparently, that, as in the case of Milosevic, it is not necessary to define it.

The professor is not going to return voluntarily to The Hague to hear the verdict: “For this, President Tomislav Nikolic and Prime Minister Alexander Vucic will have to detain me and extradite me”.

      The main thing is that the Serbs would not forget who bombed them. True Sheshel says! And the EU is a quagmire that will drag out, then you won’t get out of this swamp. And the fact that a person spent 12 years without conviction, as it can be called, except as a crime against this person. It’s necessary to plant these moral freaks who kept him in captivity for 12 whole words, I can’t even pick up the words ...

            Not everything there is unambiguous for the "brothers".

            The only thing is that after the events of the early 90s, the NATO bombing of the local brains still corrected.

            Serbia is ready to join the EU. In order for the EU to take, the Serbs agreed to recognize the partition of their own country and recognize Kosovo. And betray Russia.
            By the way, due to Serbia’s ambitions, Russia once started the First World War, which led to the October Revolution and the fratricidal war in Russia itself. Because of the Serbs, the Russians went to an unprecedented aggravation of relations with the United States, and Foreign Minister Yevgeny Primakov even deployed his plane over the Atlantic when he learned that the Americans were bombing Serbia.
            Russia still categorically refuses to recognize Kosovo.
            Precisely because he considers it his duty to support the Serb brothers. Who grabbed Russian loans and even wanted to get Russian citizenship. Without leaving, of course, from their homes. Only for Russia to protect them as their citizens ...
            And now it's time to betray. However, in time to betray, as the hero of the famous film Eldar Ryazanov said - this is not to betray, but to warn ...
            We have so many brothers that you never know which of them will betray you at the moment. The Americans have no brothers, but for each betrayal they know how to recover in full measure. Not because they do not like, but to be respected.
            Our Fatherland shed the blood of its citizens for its "brothers" - Poles and brothers - Bulgarians. Both those and others are now on the other side of the barricades. Actually, the Bulgarians fought on the side of the Germans in both worlds. Hitler was closer to them than the brothers who fought for them at Plevna.
            One who does not know how to draw conclusions from betrayals is doomed to be betrayed countless times. But again we forgive the debts to the African brothers, and to the Arabs we give such loans that neither our peasants nor our factories dreamed of. We even Cyprus, completely brazenly robbing Russian, eased the loan conditions. Well then, brothers in faith. True, the brothers believe most of all in money, but Russian suckers prefer to shoe under the sweet talk of eternal friendship.
            We are a country of kindness. Which, as you know, is often worse than theft ...
            You can minus, it's just your emotions!

      F.I. Tyutchev. To the Slavs (“Greetings to you sincerely, brothers ...”)
      Hello to you sincere brothers
      From all the Slavic ends
      Hello to all of you, without exception!
      For everyone, a family feast is ready!
      No wonder Russia called you
      On a holiday of peace and love;
      But you know, dear guests,
      You are not guests here, you are yours!
      You are at home here, and more at home,
      Than there, in his homeland, -
      Here where domination is unfamiliar
      Foreign authorities
      Here, where power and allegiance
      One language, one for everyone
      And Slavism is not considered
      For grave original sin!
      Although hostile fate
      And we were separated
      But still we are one people,
      Single mother sons;
      But still we are brothers!
      Here, that's what they hate in us!
      Russia doesn’t say goodbye to you
      Russia - do not forgive you!
      Confuses them, and to fright,
      What is the whole Slavic family
      In face and foe and friend
      For the first time he will say: “It's me!”
      With persistent remembrance
      About a long chain of evil grievances
      Slavic self-awareness,
      Like God's punishment, they are afraid!
      Long on European soil,
      Where lies are so overgrown,
      A long time Pharisee science
      The double truth has been created:
      For them - the law and equal rights,
      For us - violence and deceit,
      And secured the old age
      They are like the legacy of the Slavs.
      And what has been going on for centuries
      Not exhausted and raise yourself
      And gravitates over us too -
      Above us gathered here ...
      Still sore from old pains
      All modern time ...
      Not touched by the Kosovo field
      The White Mountain is not torn!
      And between us - a great shame
      In a Slavic, native environment,
      Only he left their opals
      And did not undergo their enmity,
      Who is always and everywhere for his
      The villain was advanced:
      They are only our Judas
      Honored with their kisses.
      Disgraced World Tribe
      When will you be the people?
      When time will be abolished
      Yours and discord and adversity,
      And the cry to the union will strike
      And collapse what divides us? ..
      We wait and believe in providence -
      He knows the day and the hour ...
      And this belief in the truth of God
      Already in our chest does not die,
      Though many victims and many sorrows
      We also see ahead ...
      He is alive - the supreme Provider
      And the court didn’t impoverish him,
      And the word Tsar the Liberator
      The limit will speak for Russian ...
      (Early May 1867)

      Better not say.

        So I say that there are questions. Indeed, if Sheshel says that he returned to take revenge, then: to whom, how, for what?
        I repeat that it seems to me that it was released not just like that, but for some specific purpose.
        The option in my opinion: at least a tense situation or its escalation, but if a war turns out, plus to all that at least some side to involve the Russian Federation, it is generally excellent. Then it will turn out to "stretch" the forces of the Russian Federation or distract from the problems with Syria, this is the minimum.

    I myself am also glad for the release of Sheshel.
    But I have questions: why is it that the Hague Tribunal, after 12 years of pre-trial detention, released the Serbian politician Vojislav Seselje? I do not believe in the humanism of this pseudo-tribunal, I do not believe. Why, in that case, didn’t let Milosevic go, who was also ill?
    It seems to me that Sheshel was released for some specific purpose and the point is not that she pressed the Russian Federation. If they wanted to, they would not have released without the order of the United States.
    It seems to me like this is that some big muck in the Balkans, big and scary, is being started up again. Seselja can simply be used in the dark, and even he himself may not understand this if there are "agents of influence" who can work.

      Milosevic was just an uncomfortable example - that you already have people in court dying. And even if he would have died just beyond the threshold of The Hague - no formal presentation to the tribunal, to which people are hurt to death.
      And in the Balkans there are always some turbidity, and forever something is up and getting ready - etozh Balkans)
