Baku-APA. The elder brother of Yugoslavian strongman Slobodan Milosevic died on Tuesday at Belgrade’s Dedinje cardiology center, Serbia’s B92 broadcaster said, APA reports quoting RIA Novosti.

Borislav Milosevic’s health deteriorated during his stay in Montenegro, and he was flown by helicopter to the Belgrade hospital in critical condition several months ago.

Borislav served as an ambassador to Moscow in the late 1990s, while his younger brother was in power.

Slobodan Milosevic led Yugoslavia into war and international isolation, culminating in the NATO bombing of the country in 1999. He was found dead in his cell in The Hague Tribunal's prison on March 11, 2006, while on trial for war crimes by the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. His death was blamed on a heart attack.
