BELGRADE – Famous actor Robert De Niro said that he personally feels like a Serb and that the greatest injustice was done to Serbs by Europe, but also by the whole world, when it was decided to bomb the small country in 1999, Serbian daily “Vecernje Novosti” reported, citing “Sputnik”.
In an interview with British media De Niro said that Serbia is one of the smallest countries in Europe, but with the greatest torment.
The famous American actor said that the greatest injustice was done to Serbs by Europe, but also by the whole world, when it was decided to bomb the small country in 1999, Sputnik reported.
The actor said that he repeatedly said that he feels like a Serb, but that he could not understand why there are conflicts between Serbs, Croats and Bosniaks, when they are almost the same people, divided by the history.
He said that he likes to come to Serbia and that he likes Belgrade, where he stayed a long time ago.
De Niro said that he would like to film a historical movie about Serbia. His most inspirational Serbian historical figures are Draza Mihajlovic, who was the first guerilla fighter against fascism and Slobodan Milosevic, who was, according to him, a tragic figure with Shakespearean caliber.
