altOn 24 March, the Consulate General in Frankfurt in collaboration with the Serbian Cultural Centre in Offenbach am Main and the parish of the Serbian Orthodox Church organized an event marking the 20th anniversary since the NATO aggression against Yugoslavia took place.

The commemorative event was held on the premises of the Serbian Cultural Centre in Offenbach am Main. The ceremony opened by Consul Branko Radovanovic included screening of video footing from 1999 and an exhibition called "78 days in 78 photos" authored by Andreja Lovic, while the sounds of civil defence sirens called for a minute of silence for all the people who lost their lives during the NATO bombing.

Lieutenant Dejan Cimbaljevic recalled civilian and military victims of the bombing and the resolute response the Serbian army had given in the fight against the enemy, while he also underlined Serbia's determination to preserve its military neutrality.


A memorial service for the victims of the NATO aggression was held at the Frankfurt Main Cemetery – in the Serbian and Russian army memorial complex, at the Memorial Cross of Resurrection. Defence Attaché of the Republic of Serbia in Berlin Lieutenant Dejan Cimbaljevic and Consul General Branko Radovanovic laid a laurel wreath at the memorial. Dozens of Serbian citizens attended the memorial service and the wreath-laying ceremony.
