Kremlin says Macedonia crisis result of NATO's 1999 strikes.


GENOA, Italy. July 21 (Interfax) - A senior Kremlin aide said on Saturday that the current crisis in Macedonia had its roots in NATO's air strikes against Yugoslavia in 1999.
The crisis is the result of "systematic mistakes that date back to the period of the bombings of Yugoslavia," Sergei Prikhodko, deputy chief of the Russian president's staff, told reporters. "We are now reaping the fruit of that action," he said.

Prikhodko said Russian President Vladimir Putin received a letter on Friday from Macedonian President Boris Trajkovski setting out Macedonia's position on the crisis, assessing Russia's role in settlement efforts and asking the Russian leader to back the Macedonian leadership.
