24 years since the NATO attack; Growing number of people gather in Sombor

Exactly 24 years ago, sirens announced NATO aggression against Serbia. In 11 weeks, about 2,500 civilians and about 1,000 soldiers and policemen had died.

In Serbia, the Day of Remembrance for those killed in NATO aggression is being celebrated, and the central manifestation, which will be attended by the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, is being held in Sombor. During 78 days, roads, commercial facilities, health facilities, media houses, monuments and military facilities were severely damaged.

Today, we mark 24 years since NATO aggression, committed against Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia & Montenegro). We will never forget.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Miloš Vučević laid a wreath today at the Heroes of the 37th Motorized Brigade memorial in the Stefan Nemanja barracks in Raška, on the occasion of the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of NATO Aggression.

The Day of Remembrance for those killed in the NATO aggression against FR Yugoslavia was marked today with commemorative gatherings in the commands, units and institutions of the Serbian Armed Forces and the laying of wreaths and flowers near the memorial to the fallen members of the Yugoslav Army.
