April 14, 2019

Russia

Mirjana Markovic, the "Lady Macbeth" of the Balkans, died on Sunday in Russia, to which she had fled to avoid persecution. Sociology professor at Belgrade University and leader of a neo-Comunnist party, she was suspected of complicity in 1999 in the assassination of Slavko Curuvija, a Belgrade newspaper editor, and the disappearance in 2000 of Ivan Stambolic, Mr. Milosevic's onetime mentor. It is known that she had a great role in her husband's actions. Slavoljub Djukic even wrote in his book Milosevic and Markovic: A Lust for Power (2001) that "no woman has had so much influence on state affairs and the Serbian president was hostage to his wife".

"Bosnian Muslims did not have a myth, so they decided to construct one around Srebrenica", said the Serb member of the tripartite Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mirolad Dodik. Dodik has repeatedly downplayed the Srebrenica massacre, along with other Bosnian Serb politicians and the authorities in neighboring Serbia who deny that genocide was committed.
