Representatives of the Mothers of Srebrenica and Zepa Enclaves and Association of Witnesses and Victims of Genocide met with the Russian ambassador in Bosnia, Igor Kalabukhov, to discuss their recent letter to the UN Security Council.

In the letter, the association asked members of the UN Security Council to respect the judgments of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, which was formed by the UNSC. They were referring to the rulings confirming that genocide took place in the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica in 1995.


Kalabukhov told the representatives that Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, is familiar with the content of the letter.

The ambassador and the representatives agreed that it is necessary to build trust among the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“Our proposal is to accept the judgments of international and domestic courts as the first step in building trust, which would be the basis for respecting coexistence in this area,” the associations said in a statement.

“Mr. Kalabukhov informed us that he would report on today's meeting to the Office of the President of the Russian Federation,” it said.
