Ivanisevic: Initiative to Reconsider Behavior of Diplomats Justified
Thursday, 10 January 2019
Milivoje Ivanišević
BELGRADE, January 1 /SRNA/ - An unexpected, but justified initiative of the Chairman of the BiH Presidency, Milorad Dodik, to reconsider the behavior of BiH diplomatic representatives and institutions abroad should be unreservedly supported by all national and state institutions, says the director of the Belgrade-based Institute for Research on the Sufferings of the Serbs in the 20th Century, Milivoje Ivanisevic.

“We could count on one hand’s fingers embassies /of BiH/ which libraries contain evidence, documents and books about crimes against our people and our sufferings. These embassies gather and distribute ‘evidence’ and books about the Serbian ‘genocide’,” Ivanisevic has told SRNA.

He has added that such a behavior stimulates and nurtures the media harangue against everything that is Serbian – from literature, monasteries in Kossovo and Metohija, Ivo Andric to Republika Srpska.

Support to building Memorial Centre in Donja Gradina
Monday, 04 February 2019
BANJALUKA, February 4 /SRNA/ - Israeli historian Gideon Greif says he supports an announced construction by the authorities of Republika Srpska and Serbia of a memorial centre in Donja Gradina provided it is done by professionals.

Greif says he always backs all institutions and memorials which contribute to the memory of a nation, because every nation has to remember what happened to them through history.

He told the Glas Srpske daily he had a chance to speak to the renowned Serbian film director Emir Kusturica about shooting a film about Jasenovac, noting that it was high time to do it because Kusturica was a genius who was able to carry out the project.

Miletic: Massacred Serbs - Damir Krsticevic's the Biggest Military Result
Thursday, 17 January 2019
MRKONJIC GRAD, January 16 /SRNA/ - Massacred Serb civilians and prisoners in Republika Srpska is the greatest “military result” of the former commander of the Croatian Army 4th Guard Brigade, Damir Krsticevic, says chair of the presidency of the Veterans Association of Republika Srpska, Dusko Miletic.

"Krsticevic says his participation in the war was honourable and moral and that he was a defender. Such sarcasm, massacred Serb civilians and prisoners in Republika Srpska were his greatest ‘military result’ and a ‘recommendation’ for holding a ministerial position. By the terror he spread, he should have been minister of aggression,” Miletic, who is also chair of the Mrkonjic Grad Veterans Association presidency, told Srna on Wednesday.

He believes it is very important that Serbia recently lodged a criminal report against Krsticevic, who is the current Croatian Minister of Defence, and his fellow fighters for the murder of 81 Serb civilians near Jajce in 1995.

Ivanisevic: Sarajevo Tunnel was a Rat Channel for smuggling Weapons
Friday, 23 November 2018
Milivoje Ivanisevic 
BELGRADE, November 22 /SRNA/ - The president of the Institute for the Research of Sufferings of Serbs in the 20th Century, Milivoje Ivanisevic, has told SRNA that the tunnel under the Sarajevo Airport was a rat channel during the war for arming Sarajevo Muslims, and not a tunnel of salvation as it was presented in the “Kvadratura Kruga” documentary aired by RTS.

He says that the Sarajevo tunnel was an inappropriate subject for the documentary, and that the author did not understand the real purpose of the tunnel but presented it as it was used for humanitarian purposes, which was not the case.

“They used the tunnel as a rat channel to procure weapons and ammunition. You have a paradox situation that Muslims were better armed at the end of the war than at the beginning. They had the most contemporary equipment from NATO warehouses and they were allegedly under siege,” Ivanisevic has said.

Professor Dr. Gideon Greif, chief researcher at the Holocaust Institute Shem Olam in Israel, has revealed information about the victims of torture in Jasenovac.

Jasenovac was a death camp in Croatia for Serbs, Jews, and Roma, set up and operated by the Ustasha regime of the Nazi-allied Independent State of Croatia (NDH) during the Second World War.

Based on information he received during his four-year work on a study entitled, "Jasenovac, the Auschwitz of the Balkans," Greif said that at least 800,000 Serbs and about 40,000 Jews had been killed in Jasenovac in the most brutal manner. "Jasenovac was the empire of death," Greif points out, adding that revisionism represents a second murder of the victims.
