A new monument to Tsar Nicholas II was opened on Saturday in the village of Riteić, near the city of Doboj in northern Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Republika Srpska, reports pravoslavie.ru.
The monument was erected in recognition of the Russian tsar, who rose in defense of the Serbs in the First World War. About 1,500 people, including representatives of the government of Republika Srpska, the Serbian Orthodox Church, Russian and Serbian professionals, and Bosnian and Serbian parliamentarians, businessmen, and diplomats participated in the ceremonies dedicated to the opening of the monument.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, the Russian ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina Peter Ivantsov stated, They well remember here the personal contribution of Nicholas II, who delivered an ultimatum to the allies who refused to save the wounded Serbian army, and in the end accomplished its evacuation to the island of Corfu in the winter of 1916. This, and the Second World War, when Russia saved the world from Fascism.
According to the Russian diplomat, such events bear witness to the existence of a bridge of friendship between our peoples.
In an address delivered to the participants of the ceremony, Russian Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky stressed that the Russian autocrat was the initiator of the convening of the 1899 first peace conference in the Hague, and in 1914 Russian was the sole country which stood up for Serbia as it was subjected to Austro-Hungarian aggression.

The Russians consider the martyred Tsar Nicholas II a saint of the Russian Orthodox Church, and his martyred family members also.
The Bolsheviks murdered Nicholas and his children when they seized power. Never forget that.
The USA is now filled with Bolsheviks.
We must be vigilant, armed and prepared.
Get your filthy russian vomit inducing posts to some cultist cesspool. This is an American forum. No place for your russian scum.
Are you a Galician?
No one forced you to click on the thread, you Russophobic bigot.
I bet you cheered as NATO slaughtered the Serbian Christians for the benefit of muslim terrorists.
... after Serbia, perhaps with Russian collusion, sponsored a (successful) plot to murder the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. Let's tell the whole story.
Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
I don’t want the liberals to repeat their Bolshevik overthrow of our nation as they did in Russia.
So, can it, nitwit.
