Why did NATO troops intervene in the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina? When answering the question, take into account the position of the United States in the UN after the collapse of the USSR, the relationship of the United States with Muslim countries and states in which supporters of socialism retained power
This war began as a result of the collapse of Yugoslavia due to multinationality: 44% are Muslims (Bosnians), 31% are Orthodox (Serbs), 17% are Catholics (Croats). The war was in the nature of ethnic cleansing. In 1995, NATO did indeed intervene in the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, bombing Serbian troops and civilians in Bosnia and Croatia from the air. They did not touch the Bosnians and Croats because, under pressure from the international community, they nevertheless created a united government, which was recognized by the UN. The Serbs refused to obey this government and advocated the annexation of their regions to the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
