Brother of Milosevic Dies

BELGRADE, Serbia — Borislav Milosevic, the brother of late Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic, has died aged 79.

Milosevic, who was the Yugoslav ambassador in Russia while his brother was in power during the 1990s, died of heart-related problems Tuesday at a Belgrade hospital, the Socialist Party said.

He was a supporter of his brother's hard-line policies, and a staunch critic of the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, which tried Slobodan on genocide charges.

He also accused the UN of being responsible for the death of his brother, who suffered a heart attack in 2006. A critic of Western policies toward Serbia, Borislav advocated stronger ties with Russia.
