The Russian Government takes the capture of Mladic to attack and blame the West

Following the arrest of Ratko Mladic, Russia has decided to step forward and be on the front line so that the future of Serbia is concerned. In the last hours Moscow has distanced himself and demanded the dismantling of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), considering that, with the arrest of Mladic, its role is meaningless.

In addition, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, has found it necessary to claim a fair trial for the butcher of Srebrenica. "We hope that the future process of Ratko Mladic is fair and impartial and will not be used to fishtail and artificially prolong the activity of the ICTY," said the politician.

For its part, Russia's ambassador to NATO, Dmitri Rogozin, said Thursday that Mladic must be tried, but also the leaders of NATO responsible for the bombings: "Of course, Mladic must assume its responsibilities, but Serbia can not reconcile their guilt if the international community representatives who shot civilians are not condemned.

" Russia has been the main ally of Belgrade during the last decades and has maintained a very critical about the actions of the West in dismantling Yugoslavia. In fact, Moscow believes that Western countries are also guilty of crimes in the bombing of Serb areas in Bosnia and in Serbia proper during the conflict.

Moscow, with its veto in the Security Council of the UN, has been a great help for Serbian aspirations. The Russians have often supported the positions of Belgrade to Kosovo, which have refused to recognize its independence.
