Radislav Krstić (Радислав Крстић) (born February 15, 1948) was the Chief of Staff/Deputy Commander of the Drina Corps of the Republika Srpska (VRS) (the Bosnian Serb Army) from October 1994 until 12 July 1995. He was promoted to the rank of General-Major in June 1995 and assumed command of the Drina Corps on 13 July 1995.

In 1998 Krstić was indicted for War Crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in The Hague in connection with the massacre of 8,100 Bosniak men and boys on July 11, 1995 during the Srebrenica massacre – Europe's worst atrocity since World War II. On August 2, 2001, Krstić became the first man convicted of genocide by the Tribunal, and was sentenced to 46 years in prison. He was only the third person ever to have been convicted under the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. The sentence was subsequently shortened to 35 years in prison when an appeal court upheld a lesser charge for aiding and abetting genocide.

Krstić was born in Neđjeljišta in the Vlasenica region of Northeastern Bosnia-Herzegovina, then Yugoslavia. He attended primary school in Vlasenica and elementary school in Han Pijesak, where he also completed his secondary education in a grammar school. Krstić describes his young years as very peaceful, and the community in which he lived as "heterogeneous" and very tolerant, particularly among the youth.
