We offer your attention interview with Oleg Valetskii, in which he answered the questions of the chief editor of news Agency "Russian news" Yaroslav Moshkov.
Oleg walecki is the author of books and numerous publications on the history, theory and practice of warfare in the former Yugoslavia. Fighting in the war in the Balkans: in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Army of Republika Srpska) in 1993-95, in Kosovo and Metohija (Army of Yugoslavia) in 1999, in Macedonia (VS Macedonia) in 2001, Has four combat wounds. From September 1996 to April 2008 worked in organizations involved in mine clearance in the territories of the former Yugoslavia, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Tell us about how You were on the Balkan war.
Since 1991 I participated in the revival of the Cossacks and thus got acquainted in Moscow with the Cossacks, already fought in Bosnia. Was there a chieftain Victor Z., by whom also joined in the group of Cossacks, who were traveling in a group of Cossacks who were in Visegrad in December 1992.
What was this war? For You it is in the past or doesn't want to let go of yourself?
Yes, there is a difficult question. In General, it was interesting. As - releases or not, I do not belong to the people, nostalgic for the past. It is what it is, and to regret what was entered voluntarily and knowingly is stupid. For me it's all in the past, and therefore do not participate in various local veterans ' events.
Another thing is that the memory of that war I'm trying to keep in their books and articles. Consider that a big deal was that in 2011 in a military cemetery at the Church in vyšehrad is a monument to Russian volunteers, I had the opportunity to have their own, albeit small, help.
This monument was built with financial support from the Director of the Russian Bank "the trust" Ilya jurov, also has assumed the costs for the arrival of several groups of families of volunteers. Thus, it is quite natural monument the Russians built to preserve the memory of those who were in the movement of Russian volunteers emerged, first of all, for Russia itself.
Of course, from the Serbian side were assisted - manufacture and installation of the monument, and the Grand opening, organized the society of Serbian-Russian friendship "Testament" from the city of Bel, whose Chairman Sava Cvetinovic was in the 90's the chief of police of the city of Bielany. He contributed to the deployment of Russian peacekeeping contingent in 1996 in the area of responsibility of police in Ugljevik.

It is also significant that this monument stands on the Church land of the city, where from November 1992 to may 1993, there were four groups of Russian volunteers, which became the Foundation of the Russian volunteer movement in Bosnia, who received a sequel in 1999 in Kosovo. However I must give credit to the Republika Srpska authorities, who despite the enormous pressure carried out on them, still endorsed the installation of the monument. Community Vysehrad free arrange for the transfer of Church lands, the Veterans ' organization of Republika Srpska has also provided funding to the society of Serbian-Russian friendship "Testament" for the organization of solemn opening of the monument. Funds for this discovery, and the office of the President of Republika Srpska Milorad Dodik, who personally arrived at the opening of the monument, as the Minister of veterans Affairs and social protection of Republika Srpska, Petar jokić.
It is impossible to mention all those who assisted in the city described by Andric Willow over the river in the peutinger table, was placed a cross in memory of dead volunteers and in this case I would like to thank them.
You wrote a great book called "Yugoslav war", in which you can share memories and military experience. This is Your only book?
No, here's another I wrote a book: "the White Wolves (Serbian diary of a Russian volunteer 1993-1999)" (Publishing house "Grifon" - Moscow. 2006), "the New strategy of USA and NATO and its influence on the development of foreign weapons systems and ammunition" (published by "Arctic", Moscow 2008), "weapons of Mine. The issues of mining and the mine" (Publisher: Kraft+, 2009), "the Yugoslavian war 1991-1995" (Publishing house "Kraft+", Moscow 2011).
In which countries and regions in addition to Bosnia You participated in military conflicts?
After Bosnia I fought as a volunteer in Kosovo in the army of Yugoslavia in 1999, and in 2001 I was invited to be an instructor in the armed forces of Macedonia, fought against the Albanian militants. In Macedonia was in July-August 2001

After the war in Bosnia began, the mine action programme under the control of the UN, the US and the EU. Deminers were recruited from local, to which I already belonged. The firms were American and English. On this same line in 2003 started to gain almost the same American and British managers that controlled the mine and some of my men in Iraq and then in Afghanistan. Recruited as Serbs and Muslims alike. In 2004 was able to leave me. First in Iraq, then in Afghanistan.
How many Russian volunteers took part in the Balkan war? Tell us about them.
I think in total, 600-700 people. I wrote the book "White wolves" (the title, by the way, not mine) about it. Something can not add, moreover, that kept the principle in detail about names to talk about the victims. The list of victims provided with biographies.
The only thing I can add about Dmitry Bogachev - the volunteer-the Cossack, provoevavshy in the Serbian Krajina in 1993, under 93-94 in Sarajevo and in Kosovo in 1999 and tragically died in Nizhny Novgorod a month ago.
Do you remember the Serbs of the heroism of the Russian volunteers?
Yeah not really something and remember. The Serbs and their can't remember. Don't want my words to be interpreted in an erroneous context, and explain why in detail.
Russian volunteer Oleg Bondarets from Kiev with manual anti-tank grenade launcher M-57 Yugoslav production in Sarajevo. Was killed in Sarajevo on 20 November 1995 on the street Osmanskoy in the Second battalion of the 1st Sarajevo brigade.
Contrary to popular clichés, is now in Serbian society in the power - hucksters in the worst sense of the word. These shopkeepers can be outwear or uniforms, they can work in the legal field or in the crime, they may have millions in state, and there may be millions in debt - it does not change anything. For them in the first place is his ego and, accordingly, material benefit, for which they will sell anything and anyone.
Of course, those who have excelled in war, they do not need, because, only they see themselves as "heroes" of the day and this, incidentally, produces an incredible amount of Liegeois.
Explanations for this abound from the historical to the political, but the consequences are such that in contemporary Serbian society and their own military heroes don't need, not that foreign.
In this case it is possible to recall the history of ancient Israel described in the old Testament in which the spiritual elevation of the people lived side by side with his deepest lows, for the Orthodox Serbs and other Christian Nations in the past myself and was seen as a "New Israel" and, obviously, as the Serbs consider themselves to be Orthodox, to those of Israel according to Orthodox theology the same and are.
In this case, Serbian society, even of its composition, based originally on ties of kin, corresponds to the structure of the former Israel. The history of the Serbs, as the struggle for political power and territory, and for the preservation of the Orthodox faith, to the greatest extent consistent with the history of Israel.
Now the Serbian society is in deep crisis, which reasons you should write too much, but it's pointless now to deny striking any foreigner excessive self-conceit Serbs, both individual and collective, which brings many members of this strong spirit of the people to the loss of sobriety of reason. Therefore, in relation to politics, society and religion imposed assessments breathtaking in their absurdity, then as a person those who makes them, are quite earthly sanity.
It is also obvious that the return of the Serbian people to the old ideals, based on Orthodoxy - a fact that to prove makes no sense. It is not in the interests of those forces in the world, referred to as the New World order.
Thus, the Russian volunteers – a symbol of unity between the two Orthodox Nations are completely unnecessary symbol in Serbian history, which the apologists of those or other political forms of this order and try to erase. They succeed due to the fact that in practice not all volunteers consistent with this standard.
You said that not all Russian volunteers met the symbol of unity between the two Orthodox Nations. Explain.
The volunteers went through the Russian opposition, and you remember that then in the Russian opposition in its Western sense was not. In the government were unhappy with the collapse of the USSR and then Yugoslavia was considered one of the frontlines of the struggle for the restoration of the USSR.
Of course, all this lasted until October 1993, and then began to decline. Therefore, relatively speaking, prior to October drove the group, or at least, planned the shipment of such groups, after 1993-the year to go no one was left.
Russian volunteers in the Macedonian special forces.
In addition, do the Serbian authorities quickly refused to cooperate with the Russian opposition. And as if the Serbian government did not curse at home Yeltsin, but had no desire to hold his opposition - neither nationalists nor Communists.
After the Russian opposition has lost the possibility of organizing groups, which needed support in the apparatus, where after the October ' 93 such support would be dangerous, the Serbian authorities were not going to do anything for yourself. The most that could be done in the office of the then Republika Srpska the RS representative Todor Dutina to give money to buy a ticket for whatever the recommendations of several people, but no more than that, and I hadn't heard.
However, as the troops appeared, and wrote about them, in Bosnia reached single. There were people of different histories and abilities, therefore it is necessary to divide the movement and volunteers, especially because at times got a person who is absolutely indifferent to national ideas, and indeed, to any, ideas.
You have four wounds, tell us about how You got them.
The first bullet in the thigh, got under vyšehrad, when during the battle I and a friend of mine from Ukraine - Timur went on the counterattack against the enemy and was in their rear.
Second is shrapnel bursting bullets on the back, when a group of Chetniks of Slavko Aleksic broke through the defense line of the enemy at Tarnovo in July 1993 during a major operation by the army of Bosnian Serbs.
Third time - shattered hand grenades, when assaulted the enemy's trenches under Sarajevo, in the area Sletiste when one grenade exploded at his feet.
Fourth - hand grenade shrapnel in the leg and hand when he stormed the enemy's trenches in the area Nishiki, near Sarajevo, and they exchanged grenades with the enemy.
Many of the Russian volunteers after painful conflict remained in Serbia, and in Bosnia and Herzegovina?
In Bosnia only two and a dozen in Serbia.
You choose to live in the Serbian part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. What is the situation in these territories, there is the sensation of impending new war? Are there local conflicts with bordering Muslim population?
Mujahid from Saudi Arabia with the head of the murdered Serbs under Telecom in Bosnia in 1992.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is consciously established by the international community, the source of new conflicts, due to its very political nature.
No peaceful separation in Bosnia and Herzegovina cannot occur in principle, because in Sarajevo there is a small part located on the territory of Republika Srpska, but continue to remain de facto part of Sarajevo, which is completely dominated by Muslims. Hope for a peaceful solution to this Serbian (now Eastern) Sarajevo from Bosnia and Herzegovina with Republika Srpska could only person who had not seen where it is East Sarajevo.
A rather complicated situation and in Doboj in the Republika Srpska, where there was 100% return "Bosnian" refugees (Bosnian Muslims), so that its margins they are in absolute majority.
Under Pidoram in the Republika Srpska there is a large village with Kozarac absolute number of "Bosnian" population, which in size approaches Predore.
On Srebrenica, where there was a mass return of the "Bosniaks", it is possible not to remember, because it under the influence of the "international community" returned the Bosnian Muslims actually came out from under the control of the authorities of Republika Srpska.
Accordingly, the output of the Republika Srpska from Bosnia and Herzegovina, which would occur in the event of a crisis the financial system of Bosnia and Herzegovina, is completely dependent on the help of the "international community", could lead to a number of armed clashes, because the Bosnian Muslims - "Bosniaks", it is not the old Yugoslav Muslims.
In addition, political parties of Muslims in Sarajevo, with the exception of Pro-Communist SDP Zlatko Lagumdzija, have experience in organization of mass nationalist demonstrations and will not fail in the event of a crisis economy to lead mass demonstrations in Sarajevo. Some of them will be ready to incite the demonstrators for the attacks on international organizations and on Serbs in Eastern Sarajevo.

However, such riots and destabilization of the government will open a wide field for Bosnian supporters of "pure Islam", which is now in the media referred to as "Wahhabis".
Now the main threat to the Balkans are Albanians. Who benefits from arm and sponsor of the Albanian side?
Yes the same, in whose interests and works of the Albanian drug mafia.
The power of the Albanians was in their organization of descent-the basis - for the brotherhood - "FISU", in turn, according to the White paper of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Serbia and represented the basis for the creation of an organized criminal group, which had in that case not one but several bosses and uniting with every other gang under the leadership of several political leaders. In fact, to distinguish between the politician, militia commander and mafia boss was impossible.
This ensured on the one hand the survival of the Albanian mafia and its discipline. According to Interpol, even in the course of immigration in Western Europe and North America (so, according to the White paper the Ministry of internal Affairs of Serbia, by the year 2000 in the U.S. and Canada, lived half a million Albanians in Germany - 400 000, Switzerland 200 000, in Turkey - 65 000 in Sweden and 40 000 in the UK - 30 000, in Belgium - 25 000, in France - 20 000), the Albanian mafia has been able to choose among the migrants those who are instructed to act in its interests.
The very fact that the Albanian mafia has gained an important role in Western Europe and the USA testifies that she then managed to get the support of certain power centers in the West, and this contributed to the split of the drug for economic reasons, because one part of drugs sent to USA and the other in Western Europe.
There is no division between the Albanian separatists and Albanian drug mafia. The one who created the conditions for the unpunished actions of the Albanian drug mafia in the USA, Switzerland and Germany, and the condone of Kosovo's independence.
This fact is not surprising, given that the plans for Kosovo's independence is the Rothschild family. The last article "Rothschild Occupation" author Vlado of Sindjelich ("Rotšildova okupacija". Vlada Sinđelić. Sajt Dejana Lučića) ran from the beginning of the new century the political scene of the former Yugoslavia through its "agents of influence" Norman Lamont, Peter Mandelson, Oliver Litvin, George Sorosa, Boris Berezovsky and Vernon Jordan, while in Serbia proper in addition to official Serbian politicians of all parties and ideologies, played an important role and political frames such as Sonja Licht, Latina, perović, Natasha Kandic, Philip David, Sonja Biserko, Biljana kovačević-Vuco, Borka pavićević, Milenko of Dereta, Syrja Popovic, Biljana Srbljanovic, Petar Lukovic, Teofil Pancic, Zoran Ostojic, Mirko Djordjevic, Dimitrijevic Warrior.

In such conditions, according to "U.S. Kosovo Policy Is Bad for Israel," American author James George Jatras of (James Jatras) and Serbian author Srdjan of Trifkovic (Serge Trifkovic) in the journal "Perspectives Papers" (No. 35, November 6, 2007), hope some Serbian circles to support the "Jewish" lobby in the US, which supposedly wanted to help Serbia in the Kosovo issue were meaningless.
It is these oligarchs like the Rothschilds and managed by this lobby, but according to the article "Rothschild Occupation" Vlado Sindjelich, the interests of the Rothschilds and demanded the creation of an independent Kosovo, as their new colony. The management of this colony of the Rothschilds, according to Sincelejo, entrusted Soresu, which, in turn, attracted to the case of such people as Alexander Mashkevich, Ekrem Luka, Budget Pacoli, Welton, Suroi.
The latter ruled Kosovo with the Albanian mafia, created in 70-80 years in the U.S. and in Western Europe, on the basis of drug distribution from the well-known back then "Turkish" channel that ran through the former Yugoslavia. Accordingly, those in whose interests this drug and was distributing drugs in the West, have retained full control over it and after she got control of an entire nation.
In Kosovo, the Albanian mafia power was absolute. In June 2003, the then UNMIK police portparol Barry Fletcher stated to the press that the main obstacle to the UNMIK police is the Albanian mafia, deeply rooted in Kosovo.
According to the White paper of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Serbia, virtually all Kosovo was administered by the criminal clans, of whom the most influential was the clan with the Drenica, led by Hashim Thaci, and then followed the clan Dukagjini (the Metohija region) headed Ramesam the Haradinaj clan and Laba (area Gnilane) headed by Rustem Mustafa, who was subject to the more minor clans, established on the basis of the family (the clan Jashari, Halite, Luke, selimi, Voksi, Lata, Kelmendi, Elshani, China, Suma, Sula, Agushi, Gezi, Babalu, MOSI). Often these clans in conflict, ending the killing and injuries inflicted. So, Ramush Haradinaj was wounded in a clash with the clan Musi who lost, according to the White paper, before one of its members.
Kosovo's independence has rapidly evolved from a transit of the canal in the centre of processing of heroin coming from Turkey, which caused the fall and the price for it. Over time, the Albanians have become to a greater extent to take control and transfer of narcotics on the territory of Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, using there are Albanian communities, as well as "democratic reforms" that led to the weakening of the effectiveness of the police in these countries.
In Western Europe, according to the American DEA, the Albanian mafia has become a leading force in the distribution of drugs, whereas in the U.S. it has become one of the leading groups rasprostranyaet drugs.
In addition, the Albanian mafia was actively engaged in illegal transfer of people from the near and Middle East and Africa to Europe and controlled much of the prostitution market in several countries of Europe by organizing recruitment both in Kosovo and in the former Yugoslavia and the former USSR "live goods" for the industry.
In Kosovo itself, was discovered a large number of public houses, they operated under the guise of a strip of bars in which there were citizens of Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina and several other countries.
Interpol conducted an extensive investigation into the activities of the Albanian mafia in Kosovo, and in neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro. According to Interpol, whose Commission met in Lyon on 20 and 21 November 2008 and ended in 2011 in the press ("Balkanska mafija". Dženana Karup-Druško.Magazin "Dani". 15.04.2011) only in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Albanian mafia clan headed by a native of the Furnace in Kosovo, Naser Kelmendi was led in large amounts of drug trafficking in the vast Kosovo, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and throughout the former Yugoslavia and in many countries of Western Europe and in the UAE.
According to the article, "Wrap around a criminal organization Kelmendi", published in 780-m issue of the journal "Free Bosnia" ("oko organizacije Obruč zločinačke Keljmendi". Broj 780. "Slobodna Bosna".), the police forces of seven European countries with the support of the FBI, under the General guidance Bureau of Interpol in Lyon in 2011, led the operation "Demon", against the organization of the drug mafia, headed by Kosovo Albanian Naser Kelmendi (governing the activities of his gang of Sarajevo) and Montenegro Muslim safet Kalisz.
In a joint operation by the Central investigation Agency - SIPA, Prosecutor's office of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the police of Republika Srpska, held in September 2012 in Bosnia and Herzegovina, it became clear that a key figure in criminal circles was Naser Kelmendi - Albanian from Kosovo. Naser Kelmendi has long been known in the former Yugoslavia as one of the leaders of the Albanian drug mafia, which controls a significant portion of the transit of drugs from Kosovo through Montenegro and Bosnia, so what is in the "black list" of the American state Department.
In this case it turned out that He was supplying drugs, primarily heroin, local criminal group regardless of their nationality, as "Bosniaks" and Serbs. He actually led a number of crime groups in Bosnia, including in Republika Srpska, giving out quantities of drugs on credit.
Just Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to the materials of the international group on struggle against drugs, which met in Dublin, then became a regional center of a transfer of drugs to Europe. The Caliche has been described in "White paper of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Serbia" as a member of the so-called "Zemun clan", which was, in fact, a group of MUP of Serbia and the Belgrade local bandits, where he was responsible for the flow of heroin from Kosovo.
OPG centre of Kalisz, numbering hundreds of members, was the town of Rozaje in the border with Kosovo and, as stated in the document of the police Directorate Montenegro "threat Assessment of organized crime", that Have been the center of drug trafficking in Montenegro. Give birth to heroin, which according to various estimates by going to tons a year, were transferred from neighbouring Kosovo and from Birth, it was further spread through Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and in the countries of the European Community. According to the article, "Wrap around a criminal organization Kelmendi", Kelmendi and the Caliche has worked closely with the native of Montenegro Pljevlja Darko Šarić related to former members of the "Zemun clan" in Serbia, also under sledstviem as of Serbian police and Interpol and also with the Bosnian oligarch Fahrudin Radoncic and with the former commander of forces of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Srebrenica Nasser Orić, as with many other "businessmen" from Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. In Kosovo Kelmendi financed the activity of the political party of Ramush Haradinaj, however, this communication and Hashim Thaci.
Who was entrusted with this power, the West found only in 2010, when the scandal broke in the EU Parliament, when the Deputy from Switzerland said about the facts of trade in human organs, carried out in Kosovo.
In Pristina on the 15th of November 2008 was arrested an Israeli citizen Moshe Harel, who organized the sales network of the organs of the body from the clinic "Medicus". In this clinic, upravlyaemoi the Arban Dervishes, he also worked surgeons Written Shapira from Israel and Yusuf Erzin Away from Turkey.
As it turned out, in the clinic "Medicus" has conducted illegal organ transplants, and the donors were citizens of such countries as Russia and Turkey, lure of false promises in Kosovo. According to Interpol, the organization of this crime was attended by five Kosovo Albanians, one of whom was a close relative of Hashim Thaci. Because the clinic was in Pristina and was widely known here, during the beginning of the scandal, the authorities of Kosovo headed by Hashim Thaci pressured not only to witnesses but also to the judiciary, which remained under the control of the EU mission - "EULEX". As a result, the scandal was nullified, moreover, that the illegal trade in organs in which the donor was subsequently killed, began to appear outside Kosovo.
Where, after the defeat of the Albanians in the aggression against Macedonia, may occur following a military conflict ?
In the North of Kosovo and in the Presevo valley in southern Serbia.
The current dissolution of the SFRY was laid under Tito and Milosevic there played not so important role as demonstrated by the events of 2001, when he was overthrown from power, and then to the Hague has issued its own nomenclature. Obviously, the process will not stop and the situation in Kosovo will lead sooner or later to a new war with even more difficult for the Serb Exodus. No prophet here don't need to be, because if the Albanian side demands full sovereignty over all of Kosovo, while Belgrade supports Serb areas, especially in Northern Kosovo, did not obey Pristina, this problem can be solved only by force scenario. And the point of giving references is not necessary, except that's exactly why the army of Serbia sokrasheny to thirty thousand troops.

What are the main causes of the war in Yugoslavia? Only if it is the desire of the Department to an independent state?
This war was programmed by the creation of Yugoslavia 1945 and politics Josip Broz Tito, made her completely dependent on the West and its loans. Who pays - the Piper calls the tune.
To You a person requested from the Russian Army or security services experience - be a counselor or expert on these wars?
No. I have the impression that they know everything, they know everything and everybody, and I'm thankful.
Another thing - individuals, among them many officers of intelligence agencies or special forces, I don't know, but they own the organization in this case does not present, while we hope that the knowledge they my books will add.
The exception is the book "New strategy of the USA and NATO", in which there is a Chapter on Private military companies, which I wrote in 2004. I'm on the topic served as a lecturer at various Russian security structures, but all ended after they get the information.
What do you think, is it possible peace in the Balkans? Under what conditions is this possible?
I think not.
