I got in to Yugoslavia three days before the NATO air strikes began and ended up staying there for seven and half weeks until my visa extension request was denied and I had to leave.
This stay in Belgrade became a good opportunity to see what a strong and ruthless state-run propaganda can achieve and how it really creates a confused population who themselves become an extremely fertile ground for all kinds of conspiracy theories.
