“We strongly advocate that all persons who participated in these and other crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina should face justice and be punished as soon as possible,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in statement.

On Wednesday, Russia vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution that would have condemned the massacre as a genocide to mark its 20th anniversary.
