From the beginning of the war in Ukraine analysis of the events reveals similarities with the Yugoslav conflict. Strategy and tactics of the war in Yugoslavia and Ukraine has a lot in common. The question I considered at the conference of RIA Novosti in Moscow (1), in mid-August 2014. In principle, both conflicts are triggered from the outside, as part of a broader strategy of Western countries and many operations that have been conducted (particularly special operations), and tactically recognizable.

Aggression of Ukraine against the civilian population of Donbass

Let me remind you about the incident with the snipers who shot at protesters and police in Kiev, which actually sparked the conflict in Ukraine. The same tactic was applied to the beginning of the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina in early April 1992, when demonstrators in Sarajevo, fired from the roof of the hotel "Holliday Inn". In addition, I emphasize the West's role in arming and training the Muslim and Croatian paramilitary forces which fought against the Yugoslav army and Serb population. In Ukraine since the conflict began, the West is arming and preparing the Ukrainian army and militias to fight against the Russian population. In November 2014 after a major conflict in the Donbass, I visited the Luhansk and nearby cities to the front line. Fighting raged even then. In the village of Khriaschuvate I have not seen a single house that remained intact. In Lugansk showed me the school roof which was pierced by a missile installation "Hurricane". For months after that, I watched the photos of children killed in the Donbass. In may 2015, after Luhansk, I made a visit to Donetsk and the nearby cities. I visited wounded soldiers in hospital. It was young people who put on uniforms in order to protect their homes and families. The other had severe disability. During the fighting around the airport in Donetsk, they become targets of the Ukrainian army, when bodies to protect Russian journalists. During my stay in the NPT Minsk agreement was in force, but I am personally convinced that the Ukrainian side they are not respected. When we walked through the streets of Donetsk, the Ukrainian army fired at the demarcation line. The Western media did not report the affected children, nor the attacks of the Ukrainian armed forces, nor about the crimes against the Russian population, however, wrote about a non-existent Russian aggression.

Double standards-OSCE

The war in Ukraine for a long time is in the form of frozen conflict where the front line of the battle raging with lesser or greater intensity, or more precisely, where the Ukrainian side on the front line continued to launch rockets towards civilian targets in Donetsk, Gorlovka, Makeyevka and other places.

In this article I want to draw your attention to the role of international organizations in conflict resolution. One of the signatories to the Minsk agreement, in addition to representatives of the warring parties, the Organization for security and cooperation in Europe (OSCE), whose role is dedicated to monitoring the implementation of peace agreements and prevent further conflict (2). The OSCE should be a neutral party and to perform its role. However, this organization has clearly aligned its actions with the side of the aggressor, i.e. to support Kiev. Indirectly NATO.

The OSCE does not respond to violations of the ceasefire (the Minsk agreement) or military operations of the Armed forces of Ukraine against the civilian population. Immediately after the signing of the Minsk agreement the Ukrainian army on the same day, shelling of Donbas buffer zone. Despite the fact that the agreed withdrawal of equipment from the front line, the Ukrainian army is in one place performs this part of the deal, but after a short period again starts the accumulation of military equipment and troops. In this case there is no reaction of the OSCE. In the best case, published a concise statement of the OSCE that took place the violation of the ceasefire and calls for the observance of the Minsk agreements, but without a clear position on which party violates the ceasefire regime, which relativesare aggression of the Ukrainian party (the Ukrainian Army). The population in Donbas protests against the inaction of the OSCE. The power of the Donbass, the OSCE has provided full access to understanding the pattern of events and insisted that the OSCE has fulfilled all its obligations, though they were opposed to the OSCE played an important role in resolving the conflict because the organization was compromised. OSCE representatives are present in this area, and at the request of the authorities of Donbass involved in the investigation of the crime scene, but definitely not enough of an adequate response. At the same time, while the OSCE is silent about the events in the conflict zone, but smooths Ukrainian aggression, the Western media, conducting anti-Russian propaganda, accusing Russia of alleged aggression (without any arguments). Now we hear the statements of the OSCE Secretary General L. Zannier, the organization intends to inspect the armed police mission for predpolagaemoj of establishing order in the Donbas and create a secure environment for the elections.

The experience of Serbia with the OSCE

The OSCE mission began in the southern Serbian province in 1998, after negotiations with former President Milosevic and to threats of military intervention from NATO. Under the auspices of the implementation of democracy and protection of human rights, this organization was assigned the role to prepare for the secession of Kosovo and Metohija, and to establish pre-imposed "Serbian wine".

The task of the agent of the United States William Walker, who at the time was the head of the OSCE Mission in Kosovo and Metohija (in other words the lobbyist a "greater Albania") was the creation of proof to establish "Serbian guilt" on the basis of which NATO aggression on Serbia. For this purpose we developed a special operation of Racak, where the terrorists of the KLA (Kosovo liberation Army) in civilian clothes were killed in a clash with Serb security forces and presented to the international community in the media as victims of Serbian terror. It is for this reason NATO bombing of Serbia lasted for 78 days, which caused huge and irreparable damage to the country, the human and environmental catastrophe (used uranium and cluster bombs). After the bombing of Serbia, the OSCE mission was to provide all logistical support to NATO, to separate Kosovo and Metohija from Serbia and the creation of other Albanian organizations in the Balkans. From 1999 to the Declaration of the so-called independence of Kosovo in 2008, the OSCE supported the Albanian side, which at that time was perpetrated the most heinous crimes against the Serbian population, drive out the remaining Serbs from Kosovo and Metohija and destroyed Serbian cultural heritage. The OSCE never be impartial, but clearly supported the Albanians.

After creating a narco-terrorist state of Kosovo, NATO, OSCE and UNMIK continue to work on education in Kosovo "institutions" of "free" society and development of democracy." In these processes the Serbs to allow only the roles of the partners, otherwise, persecution and torture. Under particular pressure are the Serbs in Northern Kosovo and Metohija, given the fact that they survive as a community that is not surrounded on all sides by Albanians, and the potential return of Serbs would be through this area. Thus, all international institutions operating in Kosovo (UNMIK, KFOR, OSCE) about each conflict in this area was reported to aid in the creation of the "Republic of Kosovo". Also represented the latest example of election observation by the OSCE when Serbia was organized (Republican) elections in Kosovo and Metohija, with the participation of the Diaspora (the local elections organized by the "institutions" of Kosovo). The elections were held under the supervision of the OSCE, and they were held with numerous violations. However, the OSCE issued a statement that the elections were held normally, although it is established that it is not(3). The reason why the OSCE allowed the theft of elections in Kosovo and Metohija to the benefit of the regime of Vucic, to sign the agreement in Brussels, which is in favor of the "state" of Kosovo.

Therefore, the only acceptable solution to positively resolve the conflict in Donbass may be the participation of Russian peacekeepers, which would be the guarantor of stability and security. Otherwise, in the Donbass can be deployed Kosovo scenario, which will have far-reaching consequences for Russia itself.
