Disinfo: Markale massacre and Trnopolje camp are a farce of the international community

Summary

The Truth of the massacres at the Markale Market in Sarajevo in 1994 and 1995, during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, gradually unfolded Western media propaganda designed to satanize Serbs and pursue the goals of powerful Western states. This is supported by a report by the Swiss Intelligence Service […], stating that United Nations officers have concluded that a massacre on the market was committed by the forces of the BiH Army over their own population.

A report from Swiss intelligence also claims that Western propaganda also made significant use of the Trnopolje camp near Prijedor for a media war against Serbs.

The Trnopolje camp is a farce of the international community through which the stamp of criminals was immediately struck to the Serbs.

Disproof

A recurring disinformation narrative that denies the war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide committed in the 1990s as confirmed by the rulings of the competent international courts (ICJ and ICTY).

Večernje Novosti published an article about alleged material published by the Swiss Federal Intelligence Service, which, according to this newspaper, disputes "official versions of the circumstances under which the war in the former Yugoslavia took place." Večernje Novosti reported that this "intelligence documents" were published by the Swiss portal "Swiss Propaganda Research," referring to the "secret report of the Swiss Federal Intelligence Service (FIS)." Raskrikavanje.rs, a fact-checking website from Serbia, found that the Swiss Propaganda Research portal did not refer to any source, not even a "Swiss intelligence secret document". (See here)

Raskrinkavanje.rs stated “For the bombing of Sarajevo, including the attack on the Markale Market in Sarajevo, the former Republika Srpska president Radovan Karadžić and the commander of the Sarajevo-Romanija Corps of the Republika Srpska Army Stanislav Galić were sentenced by the ICTY to life in prison in The Hague, and VRS Commander Ratko Mladić was also sentenced to life imprisonment. In two Markale bombings in 1994 and 1995, more than 100 civilians were killed and over 200 wounded.

Al Qaeda was created to destroy Russians and Serbs

The war in Yugoslavia in the 1990s had the goal of establishing a new balance of power in Southeast Europe after the end of the Cold War. For this purpose, the US used the same paramilitary forces, with the help of which they had previously fought with the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, which would later bear the name of the Islamist al-Qaeda terrorist group. Other terrorist organisations of militant Muslims, such as the Islamic State, later developed based on the same roots.

This is, among other things, published in the material of the Swiss Federal Intelligence Service, which has just come to light.

Speaking about Srebrenica, even Philip Corwin, the highest UN civilian representative in Bosnia during the war, later opposed the official version of events. US political scientist Edward Herman and former CIA officer Robert Berr, who at the time “held” Yugoslavian territory, spoke of Srebrenica as a hoax, Wimmer recalls.

Poland started World War II

Using the enormous archive of trophy documents Putin has proved two crucial points: first, on the eve of the World War II Poland basically formed a military alliance with Hitler’s Germany and secondly, anti-antisemitism became a state ideology of Poland before the war. This means that Poland, together with Nazi Germany, is the culprit of starting World War II.

Disproof

Historical revisionism consistent with recurring disinformation pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Poland and the WWII. 

Poland did not start World War II, it was Nazi Germany, which attacked Poland on September 1, 1939, with Soviet troops entering Polish territory on September 17.

The Poles thanked Hitler for exterminating the Jews

Immediately after the war between Germany and Poland ended, a thousand delegates from the Polish Peasants’ Party voted in favour of a resolution in which they thanked (Adolf) Hitler for the extermination of the Polish Jews and demanded the expulsion of the survivors.

Disproof

A recurring disinformation message that is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism.

This passage refers back to the 2006 review of the book entitled "Fear: Anti-Semitism in Poland After Auschwitz," by Jan T. Gross, where David Margolick writes: "With the war over, and to tumultuous applause, a thousand delegates of the Polish Peasants Party actually passed a resolution thanking Hitler for annihilating Polish Jewry and urging that those he'd missed be expelled."
