    Did the Yugoslav forces in Kosovo, especially during the NATO air attacks experience problems with desertions?, I'm aware that the JNA had massive problems in 1991 in Croatia but the evidence on Kosovo appears very patchy, some problems towards the end of the aerial attacks, late May 1999 with some units deserting...Was it a major issue for the VJ?

    I'm not sure if this is what your looking for but here goes...

    This first link covers how deserters should be treated and if they should be deported from neighbouring countries where they sought refuge

    This second link seems to be more of what your looking for

    Yep, if you examine the ICTY transcripts the problems of the desertion of that unit are mentioned and the response of Pavkovic was to try and engage with the issue more or less straight away...It never materialised into the Croatian style desertion numbers...
