Modern Russia and the Russo-Ukrainian War

The author, Branka Takahashi, is a writer from Serbia. She studied Japanese at the University of Belgrade, where her advisor was the poet Kayoko Yamazaki, whom we have mentioned on our blog.

Delicate inner depictions. There is humor that makes you giggle.

Reading "To Tokyo, Serbia" with the author's thoughts and feelings was extremely stimulating and enjoyable.

I would highly recommend it.

Modern Russia and the Russo-Ukrainian War

Kayoko Yamazaki's "Belgrade Diary" - Winner of the Yomiuri Literary Award! Pearls of Words Spun from Life in Serbia after the Airstrikes

What did the author, a poet, see and feel in the city of Belgrade after the Yugoslav conflict and NATO bombing?

The casual, everyday life that continues after the conflict.

In the words that describe the daily life, the shadow of the conflict gradually appears and disappears...

I think this work is very rare in that it captures the daily lives of people who still live there, rather than easy-to-understand "special events. It is a wonder that it does not merely cut out everyday life, but also gives us a sense of the depth of human life.

I thought it was quite plausible that this work won the Yomiuri Literary Award. This work has a mysterious power.

This work is a collection of essays by Kayoko Yamazaki, a poet living in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.

Why did the Yugoslav conflict happen...

This conflict has been described in terms of a simple "Serbian villain theory."

In the midst of such international public opinion, Serbia was bombed by NATO. The author remained in Belgrade during the intense bombing and wrote in this book the voices of the people living there and his own thoughts and feelings.

Taku Morisumi, "Iraq: Children of the Gulf War" - depleted uranium munitions, which were also used in NATO's air strikes on Yugoslavia - and the ongoing threat of radioactive contamination

In 1999, during the Kosovo War, NATO forces conducted heavy air strikes on Belgrade and Serb settlements on the pretext of "stopping the Serbian genocide. The weapons used were depleted uranium munitions, which cause radioactive contamination in areas where they are fired. These weapons cause radioactive contamination in the area where they are fired. I was shocked to learn that NATO forces were shooting such dangerous weapons in large quantities, and I picked up this book because I thought, "I must know more about the realities caused by these weapons.

This article will discuss the horror of such depleted uranium munitions.
