More than 100,000 people were killed in the Bosnian war
On December 21, 1991, the Serbian Parliament decided to create the Republika Srpska of Bosnia and Herzegovina as a federal structure within Yugoslavia and at the same time recognize the Republika Srpska Krajina. After this decision, the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina was proclaimed on January 9, 1992.
After Bosnia and Herzegovina declared its independence as a result of the referendum held on 29 February and 1 March 1992, the Serb-controlled Yugoslav army and Serb paramilitary units began ethnic cleansing against the Muslim Bosniaks.
More than 100,000 people lost their lives in the Bosnian war, which lasted until December 14, 1995, and about 2 million people had to migrate.
