"Fuck Rugova": Ibrahim Rugova led the non-violent resistance against Serbian nationalist aggression and headed the parallel institutions that Kosovo operated after its autonomy was denied by Slobodan Milosevic; when he involuntarily appeared with Milosevic during the conflict, he was seen by many to be appealing for NATO to stop bombing and by some to be committing treason. Despite challenging Milosevic at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, being chosen as president and working tirelessly to achieve the independence and reconstruction of Kosova, a few still target and try to assassinate Rugova as a traitor; it may also be true that they try to assassinate him as a political rival.
