A view towards one of the artillery positions from which the Serbo-Montenegrin Army together with Montenegrin and Serbian

volunteers often targeted the UNESCO's city of Dubrovnik. The fiercest attack during the Siege of Dubrovnik was just on the

Feast of St. Nicholas, 6 December 1991.

Associated attackers failed to conquer Dubrovnik, but they have not failed to demonstrate the level of their civility.

.........................................................................................................

'All armies in the past did their best and refused to wage war or to target and to bomb the city of Dubrovnik.

It was simply impossible for anyone to attack and demolish Dubrovnik. In the 1800s, Dubrovnik was captured by Napoleon,

but without a fight. The Russian fleet of Admiral Senyavin came to attack Dubrovnik but they lowered their guns and gave up

on the attack. There was not a single shell or bullet fired at Dubrovnik. That is Dubrovnik's history, and that indicates

the level of the human civilization. The level of respect afforded to Dubrovnik. What we did is the greatest shame that was done

in 1991'.
