Day of Mourning in Honor of the Genocide in Srebrenica The Armed Forces of the Republic Srpska, led by General Ratko Mladić, committed genocide in Srebrenica on July 11, 1995.
The genocide consisted of mass, planned murders of caputed Bosniak men and boys between 12 and 77 years. It happened in the region of Srebrenica and was committed by General Ratko Mladić's military forces, including the paramilitary formation „Scoprions,“ which was under the command control of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Srbia, with a couple hundred Greek and Russian volunteers. The event is considered to be one of the largest massacres in Europe since World War II, in which more than 8.000 people were killed. The massacre is generally considered to be of the most grotesque events in modern European history. General Ratko Mladić and a group of officers of the Armed Forces of the Republic Srpska have been accused by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former
Yugoslavia for committing war crimes, including genocide. The ICTY, among other things, decided that the massacre in Srebrenica is classified as genocide.
