24 III 1999 NATO attacked Yugoslavia. Hundreds of Serbian and Albanian chidren and women were murdered by countries which call themselves "civilized countries". Besides NATO exploded the peace in the World and began the "cold war" again.

Now the war is over. But NATO still exists and leaders of NATO countries which began this war aren't in jail so far.
Author of this gallery will never forget these crimes committed by following countries - NATO members and servants:
Belgium, United Kingdom, Hungary, Germany, Danmark, Island, Spain, Italy, Canada, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norge, Poland, Portugal, USA, Turkey, France, Czechia, Greece; Albania, Bulgaria, FYRO Makedonia, Romania, Slovakia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Slovenia, Georgia, Azerbajcan, Pakistan.
This doesn't mean, that I hate every citizen of these countries, - on the contrary, I have many friends there.
My gallery has been created thanks to people from different countries. I don't want to remove these strings about the war even now, when the war is over. Perhaps this will recall people about innocent victims and about bright prospectives of international collaboration, which were lost for God knows how long time after NATO agression.
This is opinion of the author of this gallery. It can differ from opinions of people, mentioned on gallery pages.
