The Ministry of Defense approves the participation of the Military Orchestra OSBiH - Banja Luka ensemble, who, among others, will be honoring and laying wreaths for fallen soldiers of the Army of the Republika Srpska (VRS) and the national liberation struggle (NOR, 1941-1945), and civilian victims of the war, during ceremonial activities on January 8 and 9 2017.
After the BiH Constitutional Court found the RS National Day on January 9 unconstitutional, a special RS National Assembly session in Banja Luka – without the presence of Bosniak representatives – adopted the RS National Day Law on 25 October last year through an urgent procedure.
Today, the Republika Srpska Ministry of Internal Affairs announced additional security measures for January 9.
The ceremony marking the Republika Srpska National Day is planned for Monday at 5pm in the “Borik” hall in Banja Luka. A performance of local musicians is planned on the main square, as well as a concert by the Belgrade-based group “Legende” in the evening.
