5:36 am
a deep rooted skepticism towards the west because of their own experiences of war. 23 years ago in spring 1999 nato bombers attack serbia. following the collapse of peace talks with the serbian government, the aerial bombing was intended to stop the displacement and the murder of kosovo, albanians by serbian troops in what was then the province of kosovo. alex, a good above ich was just for when bombs fell on belgrade, the events have been seared into his memory. i have with purely co op. this is what the cell is. looks like where we sheltered from the nato, arrives to formerly. no one knew what to do, not either cuz we didn't know whether there would be an as strike or not him. if
5:37 am
a bomb hits the building or will it to lapse into the cell by the most god, how will we survive that? always? there were a lot of questions and we'll talk what we just said from royal hide when you're quite nice when it's in a moment like that. what instinct triumphs are the lodge occasional machines think that i when i, when a collier cook at the sellers were fooling sounds as i recall that every one who lived in the pablo lunk was inside the nic as well as people from other blocks who didn't have sellers left, okay. it was crowded mortal doing. people spent hours sitting on the floor, every pool pool mission, soppy, massapequa sat on the door. ah, at 1st alex signed his family, fled to the cellar every time the air raid sirens sounded, days or weeks into the bombing campaign, or they just stayed put in their apartment. oh alex, as parents still lived there? yeah. his father was in ukraine for work at the time of the bombing raids. the rest
5:38 am
of the family in belgrade. ray on the lost left, it became clear to us that the bombing would go on for a long time to sell a polish. we couldn't spend a whole spring in the cellar yummies. there were people who did that, but i had to try to lead a normal life was when i came out with small children. there was no question of staying there in the cellar crockett pharmacy the nato bomb struck strategic military targets. but as the campaign went on, civilian infrastructure also entered the firing line. the chinese embassy in belgrade was hit on the night of may 7th, 1999. immediately followed by the hotel yugoslavia alex as family lived in a block right between these 2 buildings. so it's just around the corner. some of the nashik are windows, look out under the chinese embassy ali the when it was head love, i was home alone with my young children from all of that. so we fled to our
5:39 am
neighbors on shaky their apart on local, under the hotels yugoslavia which was then struck by a bomb to buckle the thing darker. he had made the rectory molla bustle, michael, that's more ball on the same evening for fulfilling in our neighbor's apartment. we all sheltered under the dining table to shield ourselves from flying glass and legged that we had no idea where to go. in the end, we just hid under the table in the summer, got on the circle and said, that is my 1st memory. looked up but of the fear of detention the wrongs throughout the sirens. furniture born bas serena, and if i remember rightly as a powerful earthquake owner cuen all good omens and auto dishes way shouted the windows soldier, its own immediacy, by living, the smell of fire, the fire engines, civils. i wouldn't wish that on any one luck,
5:40 am
never wagner, wasn't hostile. it took a sudden, you've got all the portion go to. and after that night, they left serbia and joined alex, his father and ukraine in safety, astorga such and tamitra there where bombs are now raining down. history is repeating itself. it's awful. most. the nato intervention lasted 78 days. you can still see some signs of it in serbia to day. it's impossible to overlook the ruins of the former yugoslav defense ministry in belgrade. a 100 meters from alex as apartment behind hotel yugoslavia. the damage caused by the bomb strike is less obvious. with a truck, if you the up of the 3 holes, right through all 3 stories where the bombs dropped and then exploded down below
5:41 am
a $100.00 exposure to la resentment towards nato remained strong. it's regarded as the aggressor who was bombing campaign led to the loss of kosovo cockle. mister turner coleman bumbled. what would you think of some one who's gone jehovah abra dalbert at ease but i don't think that it was a good move. missing the click was through his eyes, then echoed in organization that propagates freedom, democracy and peace. democrat didn't nick over to an organization that is meant to protect people make can hardly justify its bombing of civilian areas, form but of the line im nikki civilly. but also the actual about possibly i'm damn ne, so in the way that the average ukranian condemns russia, he, sa, must lot the young all motors. no not older. you just create hate that lasts much longer than it takes to rebuild the ruin. saw that i had a coastal typical cog or victim. the scars of war are
5:42 am
also very visible on the headquarters of the serbian state broadcaster, journalist nino. but i of it used to work here nowadays. he's the chairman of u. n. s. the journalists associate of serbia, which stands up for the rights of journalists. aflac lists the names of 16 employees who died in the bombing raid 23 years ago. and the word why i sent this serbian t v did perhaps broadcast propaganda. but it also showed the victims of nato bombings, ideally dead civilians, ziki or non military target, yet best in the end. the t v building itself was atalla. this practice has been employed in other international conflicts. r t. b stations are subjective to
5:43 am
targeted attacks. the lesson, the world during the war is on serbian territory. russia was always a loyal ally, place, and so trust has grown in the country's big brother and speaking to r t afterward, liliana and sabo let go, which flick through the foreign news channels on their television. they see the russian news as the most reliable source of information they learned russian at school. while the european union has banned the russian state broadcaster r t, formerly known as russia to day, you can still watch it in serbia and linda. sweet joins. ashley mobiles. abilene. ready laurie this, i still did the band if to be well informed. if you need to hear both sides, veronica, can even our children in the us can watch rush and channels like i teach, it's only western europe that's taking action that get off down. i don't understand it, it dominey, but she asked emily where the mouth is. they are investing in the equipment.
5:44 am
western media show the civilian victims of the russian bombings. while russian tv shows those killed by ukrainian troops. it's a battle to win hearts and minds to create the dominant narrative about the war suitable. so oh, schools thought rhythm 20 years ago, i saw how the war in yugoslavia was being reported on from abroad. hilders to the overwhelming majority of t. v reports consisted of lies to be la to log tackle bezel channel mon food on the pictures were put in the wrong context luck. it was unimaginable the tolbert . austin is obviously all yes, back then i completely lost my trust in western media on black moves up and stumble . maybe it's just my personal opinion. so city, but i trust russian media more loosely cuz they report more objectively on and honestly he pushed in his wrist. russia has already won over their hearts and
5:45 am
minds and the advocates of free speech and serbia don't think outlying russian channels as the right solution. the journalist association don't want our tea band here. maybe they'll it. so it's a human right to have free media at the v. a banning media infringes on human rights. let's get that either. dashing a ban is only appropriate it media support terrorism. anything inside hatred or violate the constitutional probably, shall go on in a case like that ocean you media can also be banned and democratic stable. conversely, my the but i knew in public space symbols of close ties between serbia and russia are very prominent with a clear pro russia election campaign incumbent, serbian president alexander voucher which was reelected in april
5:46 am
oh, yoke. validate is a political analyst and writer. he says that the only candidate who would have one more votes than the serbian president is vladimir putin, himself skepticism towards the e. u is greater than at any time since the breakup of yugoslavia. according to the latest polls, the majority of serbs no longer want to join in last than years. ah, we could see the glorification of vladimir putin glorification of everything the trasha does. ah, so i think that this is just the result of that. and this is a and this makes a situation very difficult for serbian, or tori this and for her been president. whoops, each who even if he would like to make a swift from the russia to the vest. it's going to be very difficult for him
5:47 am
because she created those narratives and he created that public which is strongly supporting russia. so i think that is a something that could not be changed over night threat then meal, which has clearly been influenced by this climate of opinion by profession. he's a production manager and film and tv. but when he's between jobs, he works here to make ends meet. one look at his helmet tells you what he feels for russia. the up with the 0, although i'll tell you straight or i'll what i support the right of the russian people to fight for their friends huddled up with i have no problem with telling you that up front. i honestly think that this is a battle between christ and the anti christ on your over your ukraine is the anti chrysler and all the people say they're neo nazis scuttle? no, not you thought they're anti christ onto christian,
5:48 am
even if they were cross sony. so sony or sony castillo antoine to christian. he says that he's come to this conclusion because he's seen a lot of videos of ukrainian atrocities on his phone. was a thought if you shoot some one lying and wound it on the ground in the leg and mistreat them, then you can't be a christian. when he got a christian would never do that. have you a christian would tie their legs together and take them prisoners when you, but they are mistreating people robbing a do they? have you also seen the crimes committed by russians and ukraine? oh no, i haven't. no. okay. oh, nice um, won't you? but it's possible that they exist for the lawyer, but yes, and i've also been to war m, he said with these will. i know that a few people on our side did terrible things without delay. kiddos in flood. in the wars during the break of yugoslavia, in the 19 ninety's, he volunteered to fight in bosnia and kosovo. the idea of uniting all serbs in one
5:49 am
state was one which serves were willing to use force to implement. but the plan fail. the bosnian serbs live today within the bosnian state and kosovo, has declared independently empty dresses this set in values. the fact that russia has refused to recognise the independence of the break away province of kosovo. and his enthusiasm for russia is matched by his distaste for the west. beautiful also bore them. people speak about the rainbow brow with a z that about people having the right to live the way that they want to do. and then the russians are suddenly cast as villains that have to be expelled is they're thrown out of theaters, what radio stations and galleries he does, and they're monuments are removed. what's that about? it's hypocritical. so the only thing that i left is love for russia was instilled in him from an early age. well my go to for it was my mother and father brought me
5:50 am
up to love russia. i would even as early, but on a healthy basis, not blindly. all the museums, i love, russian literature, art and russian hero was always. russians have died in battle for us serbs since the 19th century gal. as usual they came to fight with the serbs in the liberation from a turkish rules over the civil and so on. hook up because think of what i didn't have none of them that god saved putin, then there will be peace on earth. he beat me, that's my opinion. it may be, i'm also mistaken. louis watson, this is robert. 2 good, it's good singing russian cossacks song. incidentally, old bitch is driving home for the weekend to get ready for the game with his favorite soccer club. read star belgrade for that for me, but my attic was i'll go get my soccer things out. so i to read them
5:51 am
i, what does this jersey mean to you? this, the jersey is like an oath for me and oh little, but i'd never put my club before my name, the cool. the nation comes 1st to do and then the club. that's how it is for me some and it's not. so serbia comes 1st. and then red star belgrade. oh no, no, no. russia is in 1st place. so then serbia and then red star, bell, gray, libya. that's the order of things for me. it will always be like that in my house. that will do it. why? which? why is russia in 1st place? because russia is the mother to mike the eastern serbian city of zaya. chad has been home to andre, even of since the start of the war and ukraine. he fled here from levine in western ukraine. is grandma and his sister live in z? i a chad blue. shortly before the
5:52 am
russian invasion, the 30 year old was warned that ukrainian men would soon no longer be allowed to cross the border. he managed to leave ukraine and continues to work as a graphic designer, a job he can do from home. and just 11 weeks he's learned to speak serbian fluently and feels settled here. but i am of august although from quality lots of people i meet here they are like this done for russia they are in friendship with raja and that i know what is their historical background of his friendship so but i don't find it a problem for myself because i cannot tell what other people, what they should law or that what they should and they are free people here. they can, they can decide their friends no matter what. so it's not
5:53 am
a problem for me at all. a local journalist who has also the wife of on the sister, wrote an article about him, fleeing to serbia. a val nicholas de leon of ich, worked for the independent newspaper of dana, which is critical of the government. says she, after the story was published, things turned ugly. many all the family faced a barrage of insomnia, lead him or lost her. t pothole effects. the social piece. when he said you support nato's and you are not see one person righty. oh alice, if you need not see sonic the article caused a storm on social media element. i and i context awful monica caribbean, shortly after the article was published in donna's myself, my wife and andre were insult him and patting his where people called us nazi's and also to sympathizes. chevy vocals from the salvation. his will not and accused us of hushing out the rush of victims and spreading misinformation about suppose it

5:55 am
quite as him as you aah! here in brussels, the russian friendly tendencies in serbia are being viewed with suspicion. serbia has been an official candidate for e u membership since 2012. this expert from one brussels think tank says you can't have it both ways. is quite clear that at one point in time, serbia has to decide either it's going to wholeheartedly commit itself to the european union accession and support the european union in all issues. particularly now with regard to the sanctions against russia, which serbia does not want to join air or it goes another way or and or so this is a, a clear decision that serbia has to take and obviously since it started that
5:56 am
excessive negotiations, we expect them to to follow that logically, to its conclusion, ah, ah! in april the serbian president had a symbolic message for the country's european partners with great pomp and ceremony, he presented the militaries newly acquired and modernized equipment. it included lots of aviation hardware from russia, modernized, mig 29 jets from old russian and bell russian stocks as well as russian helicopters through the new air defense system comes from china. it's based on the russian as 300 system. it is more or less a copy,
5:57 am
but cheaper. the u. s. had warned serbia against making the purchase. possibly good pressure from embassies from the west or the east doesn't interest me . america, americans, russians or europeans. these all the rest don't matter to me because while my decisions are made purely in the interests of the serbian republic, last or even if i'm alone in the world, am i to talk what i been elected and over the next 5 years, because i will take decision must have benefits the serbian people floors, long live serbia, i think. mm . security analyst alexander adage, says that the government, symbolic gesture is a denial of political realities. serbia, is a member of nato's partnership for peace program. to the dismay of the majority of serbs. so name of those to completely yes of you has the 2 faces him of one is for
5:58 am
a domestic audience. the 2nd, the media shows russian weapons so that the pro russian elements which dominates public opinion, god gets the impression that the purchase of russian weapons is a priority for the serbian defense of as up. oh oh. but in reality, the majority of weapons come from western states and on nato oriented grandma's in m. nato. in the long term, the serbian defense industry is aiming to cooperate with the west. almost that all the components of serbian weapon systems come from the west. a physical that was on it, bull, as it says, upolu, russia has long been the big brother who has stood by serbia. and here war criminals, like former bosnian serb military leader, ratcliff luggage, or revered as heroes. since the invasion of ukraine, a new mural has been created, it's already been defaced and restored on a number of occasions. ah,
