As the vote on the Western-backed UN General Assembly (UNGA’s) resolution on the events of 1995 in Srebrenica nears, a Romanian politician has revealed to Sputnik the dire consequences that the “yes” vote would entail. Declaring Serbia “a genocidal nation” would be a dangerous precedent, she said. The vote is scheduled for May 23.
A UNGA resolution on the events of 1995 in the Muslim-held enclave of Srebrenica during the Bosnian War was proposed by Germany and Rwanda.
Serbia’s Foreign Minister Marko Djuric stated on Tuesday that while the draft is likely to gain support from the G7 and its allies, it faces opposition from Serbia, Russia, and several other nations, including Muslim countries. Serbian President Alexander Vucic Djucic is set to travel to New York City to personally oppose the resolution.
“The resolution against Serbia is a classic example of how the collective West wants to bring to their knees the states that affirm their independence. It is important that all countries that want to resist the advancement of the West take a stand and defend Serbia. It is not only about Serbia but about all free countries that can be condemned at any moment if the collective West gets angry and wishes to tarnish and marginalize them,” Diana Șoșoacă, a senator of the Romanian parliament and leader of the S.O.S. Romania party, told Sputnik in an exclusive interview.
“If we do not defend Serbia now, next will be Romania, Hungary, and other countries in the region, which globalists will dismember and enslave."
She says the resolution is nothing but “the collective West's way of inventing culprits on the basis of which to colonize other states.”
In the Spring of 1992 with the beginning of the Bosnian War, an interethnic conflict between Serbs, Muslim autonomists, Bosnian Muslims, and Croats, all involved parties systematically attacked the civilian population. At the onset of the conflict, Srebrenica was under the control of the Army of the Republika Srpska and formations of local Serbs, but by May, regular Bosnian forces took control of the town, prompting a mass exodus of the Serbian population. By 1993, Srebrenica had become a Muslim enclave within the self-proclaimed state of Republika Srpska. The influx of refugees led to rampant diseases, food shortages, and an overwhelmed water supply and sewage system.

NATO’s Bombing of Yugoslavia: ‘Culmination of Negligence of International Law’
In July 1995, after the town of Srebrenica came under the control of Serbian forces led by General Ratko Mladić, about 8,100 Muslims died or went missing, according to the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) and several other organizations. However, some experts consider these figures to be exaggerated. Later the International Criminal Tribunal for Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) declared them ‘massacred’ by the Serbs headed by Mladic.
The then-Yugoslav authorities in Belgrade in 1995 acknowledged the killing and condemned individual leaders of Bosnian Serbs for it. But Belgrade refused to see this tragedy as an “act of genocide” from the Serb side. The official position of Belgrade remains the same now, with a strong emphasis on the denial of the “genocidal guilt” of the Serbian nation.
So, why would the world’s most authoritative discussion platform suddenly busy itself with the events that happened almost 29 years ago?
Șoșoacă noted the moment, with Americans and their allies pushing through this resolution. This “unjust and unspeakable attack against the history and sovereignty of Serbia” comes at a moment when Belgrade refuses to send weapons to Ukraine, does not apply for membership in NATO and defies Western efforts to make Belgrade recognize the "independence” of Kosovo.
"With this resolution, [Western countries] are not only jeopardizing Serbia and peace in the region, but also other countries, which can always be accused of imaginary guilt when the collective West wants to take revenge or bring other states and other nations to their knees," Șoșoacă said.

Three days ago, the Russian envoy to the UN Vassily Nebenzia made a statement declaring the German-proposed resolution a "threat to peace” in the region. The draft contradicts the Dayton peace agreement of 1995 and was brought to the UN’s General Assembly without consultation with Belgrade and Republika Srpska, Nebenzia said.
