Bosnia and Herzegovina–Russia relations (Russian: Российско-боснийские отношения) are the bilateral relations between the two countries, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Russia. Bosnia is one of the countries where Russia has contributed troops for the NATO-led stabilization force. Russia recognized the independence of Bosnia and Herzegovina on 27 April 1992.

Russian troops in Bosnia and Herzegovina

At the beginning of 12 January 1996, Russia has sent troops in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, via Tuzla.[1] The move was motivated, in part, by the desire to improve relations with the USA. Location of Russian troops deployment became subject of an international debate: The Russians wanted to be deployed in the Bosnian Serb territory, and the U.S. wanted them deployed in Bosnian Croat territory. During the 1999 Kosovo events, the 1996 agreement on joint operations in Bosnia was cited as an example of successful Russia-NATO cooperation.[2]

Russian position on post-war reconstruction of Bosnia remains, as at 2008, in line with the Western policy. In particular, in October 2007 Russia upheld the Western denial of ethnic voting (defended by the Serbian minority and the government of Serbia).[3]
