  Abstract:
  The work presents data on pollution of the water, air, and soil of the city of Novi Sad area as a consequence of the NATO bombing. Because of the destruction of the Novl Sad Oil Refinery large amounts of crude oil were spilt out, so that increased contents of crude oil and its derivatives (mineral oils), oil hydrocarbons and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) were registered in the soil and water samples, whereas .in the air were determined the products of incomplete combustion of crude oil and its derivatives. Also, tests of radioactive contaminants in the environment components were carried out. Besides, the data were presented on pollution of the Tisa river after the accident in the gold mine Baja Mare (Romania). All these findings suggest the existence of serious health risks and potentially increased incidence rate of cancer in the future.
  Key words: Air pollution; Mineral oils; Oil hydrocarbons; PAH; radioactivity; Tisa River
