Anniversary of the bombing

22 years ago, on March 24, 1999, at 7:41 p.m., the first missiles fired by NATO forces hit targets in the vicinity of Pristina. Thus began the NATO military action, which bore the official name “Allied Force” and lasted for the next 78 days. During two and a half months, military targets, barracks, plants, but also civilian facilities – hospitals, factories, bridges, railways, other infrastructure, media houses and transmitters, energy depots. The government of the then Federal Republic of Yugoslavia calculated material damage of 100 billion US dollars. According to estimates by various sources, between 1,200 and 3,000 people died in them. We will remember our dead children, civilians, soldiers, but also policemen who were guilty only because they guarded the country and defended its borders.
