MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. The countries that took part in the NATO bombing campaign against Yugoslavia in 1999 or supported them must realize that under the current conditions of global turbulence it’s crucial to draw the right lessons from the past, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
On March 24, 1999, NATO launched a war against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, beginning a barbaric bombing campaign. This act of aggression crudely violated the UN Charter, the provisions of the Helsinki Final Act, universally recognized norms of international law and the UN Security Council resolution on the Kosovo settlement.
"This aggressive posture aimed at unceremonious interference in the internal affairs of other countries was also implemented in Ukraine, where under the influence and with direct support of the US and the EU an unconstitutional change of government took place in February of 2014. This resulted in the tragic events in south-eastern Ukraine," the Russian Foreign Ministry says.
"The countries that were directly involved in the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999 or supported them should realize that under the current conditions of global turbulence it’s critically important to draw the right lessons from the past, to abandon the practice of ‘double standards’, unilateral and selective interpretation of international law," the Russian Foreign Ministry says.
