A pro-Moscow Serbian sniper posted a video of other Serbian-speaking fighters on YouTube which he said was filmed at a training camp in Russia where they were getting ready to join the war against Ukraine.
This month we’ll be talking about how retail outlets in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia profit from spreading hate and get away with selling clothes that glorify war criminals and far-right ideologies.
In the Bosnian town of Prijedor, site of some of the worst Bosnian Serb crimes of the 1992-95 war, members of a party in power helped create a right-wing organisation committed to rewriting history, BIRN can reveal.
Far-right symbols are often used in the Western Balkans, but many experts can’t distinguish them because they use a coded language, the author of a new handbook explains, hoping it will help people recognize and combat such movements.
Although the European Union has placed the Russian oil company under sanctions, Motorways of the Federation, a public company, is running a campaign encouraging driver to fill their vehicles at its petrol stations.
Two small but vocal groups of right-wing Bosnian Serb nationalists exerted pressure that is believed to have caused the authorities in the city of Prijedor to ban this year’s White Armband Day march to commemorate war victims.
After police refused to permit a march to mark White Ribbon Day, the anniversary of the start of ethnic persecution in the Prijedor area in 1992, people gathered in a city square to commemorate the victims.
