- Story Text: About 1,000 people gathered at the United States (U.S.) Embassy in Moscow on Sunday (September 17) to protest against NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) intervention in the Bosnian conflict.
The demonstration was organised by the nationalist Russian-Serb Brotherhood, a Russian group which supports Bosnian Serbs as fellow Orthodox Christian believers and historical allies. The communist 'Russian Labour' party also took part in the demonstration.
Protesters marched along Moscow's central 'Garden Ring' road to the embassy, carrying Russian Orthodox banners, anti-United States President Bill Clinton placards and communist flags.
The protesters collected money for Bosnian Serbs.
A Serbian speaker addressed the crowd, calling for a minute's silence for all the Orthdox Serbs and others killed in Bosnia.
The demonstration was peaceful but about 40 police stood in front of the embassy, where security has been tightened since unknown assailants fired a grenade at the building on Moscow's main ring road last week.
