German Troops Return to Bosnia

Berlin transmits 50 soldiers as peacekeepers amid Serb protests and Russian criticism of “creeping NATOization”

Germany has ordered several 50 soldiers to join the EU-led peacekeeping mission within the former Yugoslav republic associated with Bosnia-Herzegovina, after pulling out nearly a decade ago.

The Bosnian Serbs objected and the Russian charge warned of NATO energy games as the first number of Bundeswehr soldiers deployed outdoors Sarajevo on Tuesday.  

According to EUFOR, the Germans will  “ provide additional capacity”   at both headquarters of Operation Althea and at a network associated with outposts that provide a link to local governments and areas.

“ This deployment is a more demonstration of the EU’s dedication to a stable, prosperous and European future for all the citizens”   of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the mission  mentioned .

Around 50, 000 NATO peacekeepers were first deployed to Bosnia in 1996, in order to enforce the armistice that ended the 1992-95 city war between the country’s Serbs, Muslims and Croats. The particular EU took over in 2004, and Germany pulled out its contingent in late 2012. Currently, EUFOR has an estimated 1, 100 troops from 20 countries whose mission has become to  assist   Bosnia  “ on its path in the direction of European integration. ”

Milorad Dodik, the Bosnian Serb person in the country’s tripartite presidency, said that his people do not support and can’t trust Germany’s military presence within Bosnia, given the latest Bundestag resolution expressing the need to revise the Dayton Peacefulness Accords.

“ This resolution interferes with our constitutional order and represents meddling into another country’s internal affairs, ”   Dodik  told local media   on Tuesday. He added that Germany’s history in the region – as occupiers in both world wars – also works against the Serbs having any confidence in Berlin’s actions.

Meanwhile, the Russian embassy in Sarajevo  mentioned   the arrival of German troops seems to be part of the US-UK agenda just for a  “ creeping NATO-ization”   associated with Bosnia. EUFOR itself experienced told the UN Protection Council that the country has been peaceful and stable, therefore their sudden call for rearrangements appears disingenuous, while references to the crisis in Ukraine are  “ especially unacceptable, ”   the embassy added.

Russia is conscious of possible provocations aimed at portraying  EUFOR as fragile and in need of replacement by  “ NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION occupation troops, ”   the embassy stated, urging all Bosnian factions to  “ not join an artificially imposed game played with marked cards”   but to begin discussing internal political complications without external dictates.

EUFOR’s mandate will be scheduled to expire in November and its extension is going to be up to the UN Security Council, where Russia has a vorbehalt. Last year, when Russia declined to approve the visit of Christian Schmidt since the new  “ higher representative”   within Bosnia, Western countries designated the former German politician on their own.

The latest attacks against Info Wars are only exposing their intention to silence all of substitute media .
