By a vote of 14 in favour, none against and one abstention (Russian Federation), the Council decided to end its prohibition on the delivery of weapons and military equipment to the territory of the former Yugoslavia put in place by its resolution 713 (1991). It decided that the lifting of the embargo would commence when the Secretary-General reported to the Council that the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic of Croatia and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia had signed the Peace Agreement agreed to at Dayton, Ohio. By the resolution, the embargo would remain in place during the first 90 ...

Yugoslavia Made at a national folk festival in 1951, these recordings capture the rich musical traditions and practices prevailing in the territory of the former Yugoslavia. They testify to the depth and scope of ethnomusicological research by regional folklore institutes in their quest to construct a supranational culture - Yugoslavia - poignantly reminding us of an ideal of cultural co-existence. Much of the music presented here may still be heard in the regions of their origin, but cut off from other ethnic musics. It is our hope that these intriguingly beautiful sounds may lead to a more tolerant acceptance of others among a recently divided people. -The Editors. World Library This historic series, the first anthology of world music in high fidelity sound, spans five continents and 25 countries. Edited by Alan Lomax, the World Library contains the recordings and annotations of many of world musics finest scholars, including Lomax himself.

Due to the dispute over its legal successor states, the member state "Yugoslavia", referring to the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, remained on the official roster of UN members for many years after its effective dissolution.[35] Following the admission of all five states as new UN members, "Yugoslavia" was removed from the official roster of UN members.. The government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, established on 28 April 1992 by the remaining Yugoslav republics of Montenegro and Serbia,[39] claimed itself as the legal successor state of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia;[40] however, on 30 May 1992, United Nations Security Council Resolution 757 was adopted, by which it imposed international sanctions on the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia due to its role in the Yugoslav Wars, and noted that "the claim by the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) to continue automatically the membership of the former Socialist Federal Republic of ...

by the bombing campaign will make trade along the river active again. The national airline, JAT, operates out of international airports in Belgrade and Podgorica, but under the 1992-1995 embargo , flights to Yugoslavia were banned, and the bombing of 1999 caused damage to civilian airports. Before 1999, the country was self-sufficient in electricity from coal and hydropower. The sector is dominated by the state-owned monopolies of Serbia and Montenegro. The bombing in 1999 destroyed or damaged 14 power stations and 2 major oil refineries. In 1997, the purchase of a 49 percent share of the Serbian Telecommunications Company PTT by the Italian company Stet and Greeces OTE pumped nearly US$1 billion into the budget. War and sanctions delayed modernization, but this has led to fast mobile telephone growth. Access to the Internet was introduced in 1997, and there are about 100,000 registered users and 150,000 personal computers. ...
During the Axis invasion of Yugoslavia that began on April 6, 1941, Adolf Hitler established his forward command headquarters in his personal train known as the Fuehrersonderzug Amerika, the Fuehrers Special Train "Amerika", or FHQu Mönichkirchen. The train was stationed in the Austrian town of Monichkirchen during the Yugoslav campaign. The headquarters was codenamed "Spring Storm" or Frühlingssturm.. Mönichkirchen was a market town with a population of approximately 600 in 1941 located between Graz and Vienna. Hitlers private train arrived in the town on April 12, 1941 during the Balkans campaign, the Axis attacks on Yugoslavia and Greece, known as Operation Marita. It stood at the exit of a tunnel, near a hotel called the Mönichkirchnerhof. Hitler stayed there for fourteen days.. The Balkanfeldzug or Balkan Campaign was coordinated from here. There is a tunnel located near the station, that could be used as a shelter if there was an air attack, but an attack never occurred. Hitler ...

The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes was formed in 1918; its name was changed to Yugoslavia in 1929. Communist Partisans resisted the Axis occupation and division of Yugoslavia from 1941 to 1945 and fought nationalist opponents and collaborators as well. The military and political movement headed by Josip Broz "TITO" (Partisans) took full control of Yugoslavia when their domestic rivals and the occupiers were defeated in 1945. Although communists, TITO and his successors (Tito died in 1980) managed to steer their own path between the Warsaw Pact nations and the West for the next four and a half decades.

In March and April 1981, large-scale disturbances broke out in Yugoslavias autonomous Province of Kosovo, which is part of the Republic of Serbia but populated mainly by people who look upon themselves as Albanians. The riots were spearheaded by students from the provinces university in the city of Pristina. The disorders originated in the cafeteria, allegedly as a demonstration protesting the poor quality of the food served to the students. Within a few days demonstrations not only occurred in other parts of Pristina, but in several other Kosovo cities as well. More important, however, was the fact that they took place on a political cast, with slogans that suggested disaffection with Yugoslavia and a desire to unite with Albania. The riots were put down with an indeterminate loss of life.. Although the problem of Kosovo is complex and complicated, for about one-half of Yugoslavias population, the Serbs, it is not. To them Kosovo is holy ground. It is the cradle of their nationhood, when ...
Comments by Jared Israel (5-16-00). www.tenc.net [emperors-clothes]. During the war against Yugoslavia, Western politicians and the media claimed Yugoslav forces deliberately drove masses of ethnic Albanians out of Kosovo. They said it was planned in advance. Some opponents of bombing supported this view, engaging in a mock criticism of the US government, saying it demonstrated its callousness by bombing the Serbs when it knew the Serbs would then turn on the Albanians and drive them out. Thus NATO and its semi-opponents agreed: Albanians were forced out by the Serbs.. But were they?. In his article Cooking the books - NATOs claims of ethnic cleansing challenged, Michel Chossudovsky points out that according to official Western figures, relatively more Serbs than Albanians fled Kosovo during the bombing. Doesnt that utterly contradict the official ethnic-cleansing theory?. I have interviewed Ethnic Serbs, Jews and Albanians who say the Albanian refugees were in fact organized - and ordered - ...
The organisation is concerned at the lack of co-operation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (the Tribunal) in the Hague, as well as the rarity of domestic war crimes prosecutions. Amnesty International believes that, in order to create the conditions for the respect and protection of human rights in the FRY, it is imperative that those responsible for these crimes be brought to justice in the course of proceedings which meet international standards of fair trials, and that all victims of these crimes receive adequate reparation. In particular, there is an overwhelming need to resolve the hundreds of cases of enforced disappearances and abductions (2), most of which constitute crimes against humanity. Amnesty International considers that the suffering of relatives of the disappeared, in their attempts to establish what happened to their family members, amounts to a violation of their right to freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment, and urges ...
The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavias Karadžić verdict, eagerly awaited, was unsurprising. He was found guilty of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. One part of the judgment was concerned with the Srebrenica events in which much forensic evidence from mass graves featured. Whilst this was to be expected, forensic evidence from the horrific crime scenes continues to be important in determining aspects of the crime base. This paper discusses the evidence and examines how the Chamber came to the conclusion that systematic killing of thousands of Bosnian Muslim men occurred and attempts had been made to conceal the crimes and human remains in secondary graves thus confirming the actus reus of genocide ...

Branislav Blažić (Serbian Cyrillic: Бранислав Блажић; born April 1, 1957) is a politician in Serbia. He has served several terms in the assemblies of Yugoslavia, Serbia, and Vojvodina, and was a cabinet minister in the government of Serbia from 1998 to 2000. Formerly a leading figure in the Serbian Radical Party, Blažić has been a member of the Serbian Progressive Party since its formation in 2008. On October 6, 2017, Blažić was appointed as a state secretary in Serbias ministry of environmental protection. Blažić was born in Kikinda, Vojvodina, in what was then the Peoples Republic of Serbia in the Federal Peoples Republic of Yugoslavia. He is a surgeon in private life. Blažić was elected to the Assembly of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavias Chamber of Citizens in the May 1992 federal election, winning a single-member constituency seat in Kikinda. He was re-elected to a second term in the December 1992-January 1993 election and to a third term in the 1996 election, ...
The use of the name Crna Gora or Black Mountain (Montenegro) began in the 13th century in reference to a highland region in the Serbian province of Zeta. The later medieval state of Zeta maintained its existence until 1496 when Montenegro finally fell under Ottoman rule. Over subsequent centuries, Montenegro managed to maintain a level of autonomy within the Ottoman Empire. From the 16th to 19th centuries, Montenegro was a theocracy ruled by a series of bishop princes; in 1852, it transformed into a secular principality. Montenegro was recognized as an independent sovereign principality at the Congress of Berlin in 1878. After World War I, during which Montenegro fought on the side of the Allies, Montenegro was absorbed by the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, which became the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1929; at the conclusion of World War II, it became a constituent republic of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. When the latter dissolved in 1992, Montenegro federated with Serbia, ...

The lands that today comprise Croatia were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the close of World War I. In 1918, the Croats, Serbs, and Slovenes formed a kingdom known after 1929 as Yugoslavia. Following World War II, Yugoslavia became a federal independent communist state under the strong hand of Marshal TITO. Although Croatia declared its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991, it took four years of sporadic, but often bitter, fighting before occupying Serb armies were mostly cleared from Croatian lands, along with a majority of Croatias ethnic Serb population. Under UN supervision, the last Serb-held enclave in eastern Slavonia was returned to Croatia in 1998. The country joined NATO in April 2009 and the EU in July 2013 ...

The birth was welcomed in certain quarters-e.g. by the Allies-and was unwelcome in others-e.g. the Vatican-to which the new nation, besides being the unnatural creature of the Allies political blindness, was a religious aberration not to be tolerated. Orthodoxy, swept away in Russia, where it had seemed unassailable, with the birth of Yugoslavia had now become paramount in a country the population of which was more than one-third Catholic. Worse still, in addition to permitting Orthodoxy to rule Catholics, Yugoslavia was preventing the latter from setting up a wholly independent Catholic community. When to the above was added the fact that Yugoslavia, by her mere existence, represented the greatest obstacle to the long-range Catholic strategy, the Vaticans feeling, more than one of hostility, become one of implacable hatred, a wind which boded no good to the young nation. This hatred became the main inspirer of the Vaticans anti-Yugoslav strategy, the objective of which was the destruction of ...
In the late 1980s this struggle reached a climax as Slobodan Milosevic, now President of Yugoslavia, played the Kosova card in his rise to power in Serbia. He turned the eyes of the Serbs to the south, to their medieval heartland, and fueled the fires of nationalism with a call for a return to Serbian hegemony over Kosova. His ideological campaign climaxed in March of 1989 when a new constitution was adopted in Kosova, ending fifteen years of nominal autonomy within the Republic of Serbia.
During 1998 and early 1999 the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbian) forces increased their efforts to ethnically cleanse Kosovo. They justified this on the basis that they were cleaning out Kosovar Liberation Army (KLA) bases. In response, NATO forces launched air strikes against the Federal Yugoslavia Republic (FYR) in March 1999. The war between FYR and NATO forced displacement from Kosovo and precipitated a major humanitarian emergency involving the largest and fastest movement of people in Europe since World War II.. The Disaster Executive Committee (DEC) launched its Kosovo appeal on 6th April 1999. This appeal raised over 50 million pounds sterling, which was shared out between 12 British agencies; the largest share going to Oxfam (about 30% of the total raised). The DEC subsequently commissioned an independent evaluation1 of phase 1 and 2 of expenditure of the appeal funds covering the period from 6th April 1999 to 31st January 2000.This time period covered the massive outflow of ...
On March 24, 1999, the eyes of the world turned to Kosovo as aircraft from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization began to bomb targets in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The start of NATOs air war against Yugoslavia was also the beginning of the bloodiest period in Kosovo since the end of the Second World War. In the twelve weeks that followed, Serbian and Yugoslav military, police, and paramilitaries expelled more than 850,000 ethnic Albanians from Kosovo, internally displacing several hundred thousand more.1 Many were robbed and beaten as they were forced from their homes, which were frequently looted and burned. Scores of women were raped. Thousands of adult males were detained, and many of them were executed, in some cases together with women, children, and the elderly, although the total number of civilians executed is still unclear (see section on Death Toll below). In more than a dozen mass killing sites, government forces tried to hide the evidence by destroying or removing bodies. ...
