Vuchich hands over Kosovo for a European carrot for a donkey

50
After meeting with US Assistant Secretary of State Wes Mitchell in Belgrade, Serbian President Alexander Vucic announced that the issue of Kosovo is an obstacle to Serbia to Europe, and therefore the country is ready to discuss possible compromises.



“No matter how small and insignificant for great powers Serbia is, it can accept a compromise solution, but it cannot accept the humiliation of its own people and the self-destruction of its own state,” Vučić declared with pathos.

However, the idea that such a humiliation of the Serbian president is very peculiar. He began to warmly thank the American ... for his support in the need to continue negotiations between Belgrade and Pristina under the auspices of Brussels. And also for the “shown patience” with which he listened to the position of the Serbs, despite the fact that it differs from the opinion of Pristina.

If we consider that Mitchell came to Belgrade from Kosovo, where he announced that the Kosovo Security Forces would be transformed into an “army of the Republic of Kosovo”, and no one has the right to object to this, then Vucic's words about being unwilling to accept humiliation sound rather strange.

Recall that Belgrade and the Serbian Serb party in Kosovo, the “Serbian list”, are speaking out, or rather, opposed such transformation of the armed formations of Kosovo separatists. And representatives of the United States previously said that the question of creating an army of the "Republic of Kosovo" could only be resolved with the consent of all national minorities of the region. Now the representative of the State Department refuses his guarantees, and the head of Serbia thanks him for that!

In turn, Wes Mitchell confirmed that the US supports the extension of the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina. “We want one comprehensive solution for Kosovo to be found. As I understand it, this is the goal of the “internal dialogue” initiated by President Vucic. We are ready to listen and help, ”said Mitchell, quite definitely making it clear that he expects a“ comprehensive solution for Kosovo ”from Belgrade.

Recall that the “internal dialogue” announced by Vucic is nothing but the preparation of the Serbian society for the surrender of Kosovo, in which case, according to the President, “All the ways of political cooperation and economic prosperity would open up to Serbia. EU gates too. Otherwise, we will save the conflict, the meaning of which we ourselves do not understand. ”

Now about the compromises. We are not talking about compromises, but about unilateral (from Serbia) concessions, and a complete surrender of positions.

What, in fact, recognizes and Vucic. “If they wanted to fulfill their part of the agreements, they would have done so within five years from the moment they were signed, but they didn’t hit the finger. I am sure that they do not intend to do anything, since they have received the tacit agreement of the majority of the international community, ”said the head of Serbia about the behavior of Pristina.

On the other hand, the Serbian leadership removed the police, the court, civil defense, all state bodies, that is, violated sovereignty and territorial integrity from Kosovo, having committed an act of high treason.

Vucic makes it clear to the Serbs (not yet saying it directly) that giving up Kosovo is a necessary price for moving along the European path. How much this “road tax” is acceptable, to judge, of course, the Serbs.

However, there is every reason to believe that this “European way” will lead Serbia to nowhere.

In January 2018 of the year, European Commissioner Johannes Hahn, in charge of EU membership applications, told Reuters that Serbia and Montenegro may become full members of the EU in 2025. “We set 2025 as a tentative date for Serbia and Montenegro, which is realistic and also very ambitious,” the official said.

However, experts do not share this “optimism”, believing that the chances of the countries of the “Western Balkans” are negligible. As EU politicians, faced with growing Euroskepticism, the eurozone crisis of 2009-2013 and the UK vote on Brexit, have lost interest in potential new members of the Union.

So, Le Monde, arguing about the prospects of the six Balkan countries for European integration, stated that if Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania and unrecognized Kosovo manage to ensure economic growth in 6 percent annually, they will be able to approach the EU average only for 2030 year. And if we consider that they will not be able to achieve such growth, then the probability of their entry into the European Union in the first half of this century tends to zero.

In addition, the countries of Old Europe view the Western Balkans as a source of crime and illegal migration. First of all, this refers to Albania and Kosovo, who introduced Europe to Islamic extremism, and also almost monopolized in it the drug trafficking and illegal prostitution.

But at the same time, Brussels demands from these countries for the right to be registered as an applicant for EU membership, meeting a multitude of requirements, including extremely unpleasant and burdensome ones.

Such, in addition to the rejection of Kosovo, Serbia must provide its territory to accommodate migrants from the Maghreb and the Middle East. As once the Serbian province was settled by Albanians.

However, the whole история Serbian “European integration” is a complete chain of betrayals of the interests of Serbia, its people, endless concessions on the part of the Belgrade authorities, and the failure to fulfill promises - on the part of Brussels.

EU membership has become a kind of carrot, which is hung in front of a donkey's nose, so that he can run after her, pulling a cart.

It is unlikely that Vucic and his supporters in the power structures do not understand this. And most likely, they are committing treason to their country, pursue a much more realistic, and, say, more personal goals than the country's membership in the EU.

But the whole horror, the whole tragedy of the situation lies in the fact that those who pay for the services of traitors, seek to destroy Serbia and its people. And I must say that they are seriously closer to solving this problem.

    The classic case of carrot and stick in relation to Serbia is used by Brussels.
    In short, Vučić began to work out his 30 pieces of silver ... Serbs decide to be slaves or free people to them ... wait and see.

    Turkey has also stood in the EU's waiting room for probably the third decade, however, Turkey does not exchange its sovereignty for irrelevant vague promises. While still the Yugoslav Yugoslavia boasted that they could work throughout Europe, that they no longer needed socialism. As soon as the socialist system did not become, even Serbia did not. The Balkan countries will still be split into smaller limitrophic states. The genetic code must be destroyed.

    Yes, we can’t say that “eh bro, bro”, because we ourselves support and accept this Vuchich here in Russia with honor and respect. We constantly buy his sweet talk about friendship with Russia and unwillingness to support sanctions against us. And he spills, benefactor, about his feelings for us. And the Serbs directly say that we first support the seasoned "European integrators", and then we will call all the Serbs traitors. Maybe they are right in something?

    Serbia faces a choice:
    1. Enter the EU and solve the problem with Kosovo within the framework of the union. You will have to compromise and admit that the fact that has already happened is the existence of Kosovo, as a separate state! Within the EU and Kosovo, it will be forced to compromise. For example, to recognize and regulate officially the status of Serbian enclaves, and in addition you will have to restrain Serbia’s real estate and assets there. To some extent, Serbia will return to Kosovo!
    2. The second option: Serbia will continue to conflict with Kosovars, considering Kosovo is still Yugoslav autonomy! Without any chance for a future restoration, at least part of their rights is there! Frozen conflict, not in the interest of either the Serbs or the Kosovars!
    What other alternative does Serbia have? Can someone tell me?

        A return to Yugoslav federalism is not possible for a number of reasons. For a long time there is neither Titus nor Yugoslav socialism. Moreover, the separation from the federation took place along a bloody path and this put an end to all possible post-Yugoslav integration projects for a long time. Restore the federation, no one wants. Even in Serbia there is no such sentiment.

                I met various opinion polls showing that the former Yugoslavs do not really want to reintegrate. But if the results of opinion polls can still be challenged, then the elections in these countries clearly indicate the same thing! Pro-European politicians and parties also won in Serbia. In fact, the pro-European course of the "Yugoslavs" has long-standing roots and traditions. From the end of the 60-th to the end of the 70-th years, the SFRY negotiated with the predecessor of the EU - the European Community (SW) to become the tenth country member of the SW, but then this did not happen for a number of reasons.

        Politics is a compromise of the possible. A compromise between interests. For the EU, Serbia is more important than Kosovo. Kosovo is completely dependent on the United States and the EU. It’s no problem to force the Kosovars to compromise, if in the long run the EU so gets all the Western Balkans. Settlement of the status of Kosovo in the interest of Serbia itself! No other option is possible! She will not be able to win back the ego, no matter how some cheers patriots soar.

    After the Montenegrins decided to become a separate nation and country, the fate of Serbia is finally known. It will become another territory, of which there are already a lot in the Balkans. Or resort, or banditry, southerners are different people. But for Russia, they are not needed. We need to concentrate, and the Serbs and other Bulgarians (friends, so to speak) will then come running and swear on friendship forever. We saw their friendship on ... a bush

    Calmly. Balkans - the powder magazine. This porridge was brewed for a long time: during the collapse of the Ottoman, Auto-Hungarian and Russian empires. New shocks are very possible. All Balkan states arose in Turkish territories, borders were arbitrarily set, therefore, after the Russo-Turkish war, Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, Romania fought among themselves, and the rest of the powers intervened in these conflicts. I would not run into Vučić, because politics is the art of the possible. In the foreseeable future, the Russian Federation should be interested only in the navigation regime established in the Straits and the Black Sea, as well as the situation in the South-West and West, where the problems are higher than the roof.

    The difference between the presidents of Russia and Serbia is that Vučić sees how Europe lives and wants its people to live the same way, and President Putin, unfortunately, while listening to fake summaries of the Cabinet, does not look anywhere and receives more than 70% of the vote. And the Ivanovo region, for example, despite a 2-fold excess of mortality over birth rates, cast more than 71% of the vote for Putin in the presidential election. Wonders? Not at all. Realities ...

      And I think so. In fact, Serbia will be able to regain a lot of what it has lost in Kosovo if it sits at the negotiating table. The EU is interested in everything being settled there and will click on the conspiracies. It’s great to keep them for I’s and they will be forced to retreat. True, Russia cannot offer anything to the Serbs. And in general, Russia does not have an adequately competitive project for the Balkans. She works on the principle of "ours against yours" in the old way. This strategy is put on confrontation, and the Balkan peoples are tired of fighting one against the other. Therefore, with a desire to perceive the EU model. An example of Germany and France in sight! Only in peace and good neighborliness can one prospect and develop!

          Neighbors are not selected. We have been in conflict for centuries at the Balkans. Ultimately, no one began to live better. Many have already begun to reason that this is not the right way ... If external forces do not interfere, we can learn to live in peace and trial. Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia and Croatia have already proven. The rest see and want to join.

                  Hello Alexey! hi
                  Who "dragged you against others"?

                  At the Balkans, peoples live in their LAND, for centuries. These are historically formed territories from the compact residence of one or another people. Great forces plotted borders through these ethnic territories arbitrarily and in the sight of their interests. So most parts of one or the other peoples found themselves outside their own countries. Conflict zones were created, and the same great forces dominated the dividing peoples. Like many other places in the world.
                  What did the Russians do bad in Bulgaria?

                  In general, they did more good than bad. The good thing is that they helped or freed the Balkan peoples from Ottoman slavery. The bad thing is that they also plotted borders for the sake of their interests, often without thinking from ethnic borders. Russian politics on the Balkans, changed its vectors and there were periods when it contradicted itself. Mistakes were made. Unfortunately
                  Or the fact that in September 44 the Germans were expelled from Bulgaria?

                  The topic is about Serbia, but you asked about Bulgaria and I will answer. One way or another, we are talking about Slavic, Orthodox peoples with a close mentality and culture. It is good that in 44 the Soviet army drove the Germans out of Germany. No losses and no fights by the way. Crossed the BG as a parade! Unique case during WWII!
                  The bad news is that then the USSR introduced its socialist social system into the BG. I don’t say it was good or bad! But she was a stranger to the countries of BE. They never took her as their own. In Eastern European societies there were no internal pre-deliveries for its occurrence.
                  Why did Bulgaria "hate us"?

                  There is nothing like that! According to all opinion polls 76-82% of the population in the BG is Russophile. As for the ruling, the West keeps them through a well-designed system of submission. By the way, it is so with part of the political and economic elite in the Russian Federation itself!

                      But where is the “conversation" without South Stream ?! lol While your son sat on the barge for 3 of the month, I worked on the UP with the Bulgarian side for 4 of the year. For a person who is aware of the real situation, it is very interesting to observe how wildly it is distorted in the media. This is something beyond! sad
                      Gazpromites tried to get around the EC, but it failed. Tricked, and ultimately outwitted themselves. Bulgaria is not necessary here. UP is not a project between the BG and the Russian Federation. On the territory of the EU / a BG such territory / the rules and laws of the EU apply!
                      Now from the perspective of time, I am personally pleased that UP did not take place. This gave impetus to look for other alternative solutions. Designed at the moment, the hub-Bolkan is much more responsive to the interests of Bulgaria. Moreover, it has full EU support! Everything will be fine! good

            Okay so. He sits at the negotiating table with bandits, with drug trafficking, with organ dealers - this is European. I wish that you would not only talk to them, but also live in the same society. Fools are beaten.

              We have what we have. In the power of many countries, these rule. Yes, it and the Russian Federation maintains relations with the regimes are very controversial in moral terms. Political expediency is led by politicians, not moral considerations!

    if you like the knee-elbow position this does not mean that others like it

    As a result of the defeat in the Cold War, Russia itself is in the same position. As a third decade, the country has been ruled by collaborators (almost all branches of government). Everything that Yeltsin and his administration signed in the 3s regarding budget and finances has been rigorously executed to this day.

    These are realities about which it is not customary to speak out loud.

    that is, we must return the same Crimea?


    Similar analogies in geopolitics are not appropriate.

    Well, yes, Putin also populates our country with migrants from Asia.

    And from Asia and the Caucasus, and Khokhloma nemeryanno in the country. Or isn’t it?

    Vučić’s life hasn’t bothered yet; I don’t understand what could he say at gunpoint?
