Back then, Vučić went on TV to deliver threats of more mass violence and to justify those crimes. Today, he is standing by the Russian Federation, which has annexed Crimea, supports armed separatists in eastern Ukraine and, in February this year, launched a full-scale military assault on Ukraine in an effort to occupy the entire country.
I’m proud that Kosovo has become an engine for peace but has also been relentless in not letting Serbia get away with its crimes. Meanwhile, the Russian Federation is trying to undermine stability in the Western Balkans, using Serbia and its chauvinist leadership as its proxy.
As a photojournalist, I’ve always been drawn to telling people’s stories. And for me, there is no more powerful story than that of war and its consequences. I’ve spent my career documenting the effects of conflict on civilians, and I hope that by sharing these stories, we can help prevent future wars.
