NATO’s bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999 was an “experimental war,” said Serbian professor, doctor and author of NATO’s Aggression Continues, Alec Račić during the presentation of his work at the Belgrade Book Fair.
“The attacks on chemical and energy facilities in the territory of the Republic of Serbia provoked the release of carcinogenic substances into the atmosphere and water. And from there we have such an increase in oncological diseases,” Professor Račić said.
In his book, he discusses the consequences of the bombing of the Republika Srpska in 1995 and Serbia and Montenegro (FRY) in 1999. As the author says, for the first time, as a young surgeon, he ran into cancer patients with tumors, which in appearance and development were not similar to the early cases, two years after the bombing of the Republika Srpska. This happened again after the attack on Yugoslavia. And it was impossible not to link these events together.
Professor Miriyana Adelkovich Lukic, a chemist, said that the current generation, and even his children, will also feel the consequences of the bombing.
“What happened to us was a large-scale in vivo experiment. They used weapons with depleted uranium. They needed to evaluate how it works.”
“There were targeted bombardments of objects with chemical reagents that, when burned after an explosion, release a large amount of carcinogenic substances,” the professor said.
