Who can now be frightened by the ghost of Great Serbia

"Brothers" are not there?



Recently, Serbia, under pressure from NATO and the EU, abandoned joint military maneuvers with Russia and Belarus. A little earlier, Belgrade joined the EU sanctions measures against Belarus, together with the EU did not recognize the results of the presidential elections in Belarus.

Alas, but once again (during the period of the greatest tension in relations between Russia and the West) the Serbian side is demonstrating its orientation in the direction directly opposite to the notorious "historical kinship". Although, of course, the current situation around Serbia could not but compel Belgrade to take such actions.

And yet, what is this if not a stab in the back of Russia, and at the same time with it - and Belarus? And this, with all the references to the traditions of friendship, is far from the first blow. Johannes Hahn, European Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, in a recent interview with the Belgrade newspaper Vechernie news"Ordered Serbia not only to show solidarity with the EU's position on Belarus. But also support the EU's policy towards Russia.


Johannes Hahn pulls Serbs into EU

Let's clarify literally:

We expect your government representatives to continue to demonstrate their commitment to the key strategic goal of joining the EU in their statements and actions.

According to J. Hahn, the EU understands that Serbia and Russia have long-standing ties, but Belgrade has already made its choice in favor of joining the European Union as a strategic priority.

What does this mean in practice? Belgrade must now follow the general line of Brussels on these issues. As a reminder, back in 2012, Serbia was announced by the EU leadership as a candidate for joining this interstate association, which has already become a kind of political bloc more abruptly than NATO. It is planned to join the Serbs to the European Union no later than 2021.

Moreover, we note that Serbia has been participating in a free trade zone with the Russian Federation and other countries of the Eurasian Economic Union for more than five years. How will both be combined? There is no "official" clarity and is not yet expected.

Meanwhile, Serbia, as stated by Serbian Prime Minister Anna Brnabic, has officially joined the recent statement of the European Union, which announced the presidential elections in Belarus as not meeting international standards and recommending sanctions against Lukashenka’s Belarus.


Ana Brnabic, like many Serbs, tries to sit on two chairs

At the same time, Mrs. Brnabich made a softening curtsy addressed to Lukashenka personally. She expressed hope that the head of Belarus

will not be offended by Belgrade joining the EU statement. We must not forget that the Belarusian leader was the only world leader to visit Serbia during the 1999 NATO bombing.


Memory erosion


As you can see, the Serbian leaders have quite a good memory. But the memory of the Russians is still all right. Yes, the current tendencies exert maximum pressure on Serbia, which remained after the collapse of the Tito SFRY. But история, as you know, has a tendency to repeat itself: after all, in the recent past, the united Yugoslavia more than once inserted pro-Western sticks into the wheels of Soviet policy.

For example, the rapidly developing military-political cooperation of the SFRY with NATO in 1948 led to the Yugoslav-American open-ended agreement on "mutual security." And in 1951 - to the creation under the auspices of NATO of the "Balkan Pact" within Yugoslavia and NATO members Greece and Turkey. Moreover, those treaty and the Pact existed until the collapse of the SFRY, that is, even after the end of the Soviet-Yugoslav confrontation in the mid-1953s.

In 1967, and then in 1973, Belgrade rejected Moscow's requests for the use of the base points of the Yugoslavian fleet for military assistance to Syria and Egypt. But in 1979, the SFRY, as expected, joined the anti-Soviet campaign in connection with the introduction of Soviet troops into Afghanistan.

At the same time, the Pol Pot regime was officially recognized in Belgrade until ... until the collapse of Yugoslavia itself. And this same country was one of the few who did not oppose the PRC's aggression in Vietnam. By the way, the SFRY in 1969 did not condemn the military provocations of the PRC on the Soviet-Chinese border.

But Marshal Tito harshly condemned the entry of Soviet troops and troops of the Warsaw Pact countries into Hungary in 1956 and Czechoslovakia in 1968. It is hardly worth forgetting that even the “Non-Aligned Movement” itself, the creation of which was personally initiated by the Yugoslav leader back in 1961, was intended to "fence" developing countries not so much from the United States as from the USSR (On the ruins of Yugoslavia. Alien Tito's heirs).

At the same time, according to Lazar Moisov, the ambassador of Socialist Yugoslavia to the USSR at the turn of the 50s and 60s,

Belgrade expected that Russia would limit at least political ties with the West in connection with the NATO bombings and the rejection of Kosovo. But this did not happen, because there was no longer either the USSR or the Warsaw Pact, and Belgrade did not consider these factors to be the main factors in Russian policy in the Balkans.


If no help comes


With reference to crises and sanctions, the

large-scale financial support from Russia to Serbia, which was also hoped for in Belgrade. Is it because there the course of reconciliation with the West was taken, because in the current political conditions in the region it could not but lead to the development of Serbia's rapprochement with the West ...


This was noted by the Yugoslav diplomat in his memoirs.

According to L. Moysov, Belgrade feared that

otherwise, autonomous Vojvodina can be torn away from Serbia in favor of Hungary (it was occupied by Hungary in 1940-45 - Ed.), and then little will remain of Serbia.



Borders of modern Serbia and Great Serbia under King Stephen Dusan

It is quite possible to agree with the reasons for the growing pro-Western tilt in Serbian foreign policy, which were cited by L. Moisov. As a result, according to the well-known Serbian political scientist Srdjan Persic, Serbia began to move closer not only to the EU, but also to NATO. Moreover, the country until 2012, under the pretext of military reform in the security sector, followed completely in the wake of NATO.

The years 2000-2012 can generally be called the era of "quiet" integration of Serbia into NATO. However, in 2014, military cooperation with Russia resumed: the parties held joint military exercises, purchases of Russian weapons began to grow. At the same time, the Russian-Serbian military exercises with the participation of the Belarusian side have become an annual practice. At the same time, Serbia, however, did not refuse from cooperation with NATO.

But again, geopolitical and regional realities, combined with the tightening of anti-Russian sanctions by the United States and other NATO countries, and with the "addition" of their obstruction of the results of the presidential elections in Belarus, led to the strengthening of Belgrade's pro-Western course.

Srdjan Persic and other Serbian experts note in this regard that the change of course was clearly demonstrated by the signing of an agreement on the "normalization of economic relations" between Serbia and Kosovo in the presence of Donald Trump on September 4 in Washington. This has drawn Serbia into the American sphere of influence. "

On the one hand, the situation is understandable. By now, Serbia, already deprived of the Kosovo region with NATO's help, is surrounded by NATO member countries that are openly hostile to Belgrade. In the latter case, it is primarily Albania, Croatia, the Muslim republic of BiH, not to mention Kosovo.

Let us recall that the possibility of creating a certain political bloc within Serbia, Montenegro and North Macedonia was lost by the mid-2010s. And not least “thanks to” the lack of Russian support for the formation of such a coalition (see. Inheritance and heirs of the master of Yugoslavia).

But, on the other hand, Serbia is actively participating in the Russian gas export project "Turkish Stream", which has obvious geopolitical significance for Russia. In addition, Serbia participates, we repeat, in a free trade zone with the EAEU, and remains among the major importers of the Russian military-industrial complex. The Serbian authorities, as you know, have more than once at the official level expressed solidarity with Russia on foreign policy issues.

In a word, if during periods that were quite favorable for Yugoslavia, Belgrade opposed Moscow, then is it worth it to be surprised at the current Belgrade "bends"? ..

      In Serbia, the State Department held the Maidan before anyone else, but the desire for Russia remained even among the victorious Maidan residents. The Serbian leadership is pulling the country to the West despite the loss of Kosovo, and the people are pro-Russian. As a result, like Belarus, which is now in Maydan, Serbia is trying to see it on two chairs, which is impossible: it will simply be torn apart, as in the 90s. Therefore, the drift towards the European Union and NATO will intensify, and the brothers will go over to the side of our enemies. And they so want to trade with the EU and the EAEU at the same time, and have goodies on both sides. An affectionate calf of two queens suckles until the cows begin to argue over whose calf and gore it from both sides.

    What's so surprising? The leadership of any country should first of all care about the benefit of its own country, not someone else's. It is high time for Russia to part with the illusion of "fraternal" countries. Well, we are brothers with Serbs, so now we have to take off the last shirt and give it to the Serbs? Russia must first of all take care of the benefits of its citizens, and not of some Serbs. The Germans and the British, for example, are also fraternal Germanic peoples, but the British and the Germans have always been at enmity, they have never been allies.
    And in general, I believe that the Serbs are to blame for all the upheavals of the 20th century. If the tsar-rag had not entered the war in 1914 for the sake of helping the "brothers", then Germany would have defeated France in September 1914, and there would have been no terrible massacre of the First World War, an analogue of the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 would have occurred. If Germany would win, then there would be no Hitler in power, and there would be no German attack on the USSR either. And it is quite possible that now we would live in a country within the borders of 1914 with a population of 500 million people, since Russia would not have had the First World War, Civil War, unrest, epidemics, famine, the Great Patriotic War, which took a total of about 50 million lives.

        I don’t understand at all what kind of buoy Nikolashka plunged into the war with the Germans for the sake of the Serbs? Is the life of a Russian soldier cheaper than the life of a Serb? And most importantly, what benefits did Russia get from the war with Germany? Would you take western Poland away from the Germans? So we didn’t know what to do with the Poles of Eastern Poland, the lords twice in 1830 and 1863 raised a noble storm.

            If Nikolashka wanted to seize the straits, then he would have fought with Turkey alone, with Germany, then why fight? Moreover, in the summer of 1914, Turkey was not an ally of Germany, it was then, when the British threw the Turks with two cruisers, ordered by Turkey for public donations, the offended Turks declared war on England. Moreover, historians keep silent about the fact that the Germans on the Eastern Front planned to stand on the defensive and not conduct offensive actions, the German General Staff planned to first defeat France, and only then deal with Russia. This is the Russian army already two weeks after the declaration of war, itself began an offensive in East Prussia. That is, it was quite possible to make Germany neutral towards Russia, which is at war with Turkey, as was the case with Japan during the Second World War, when the USSR fought with Germany, but did not fight with Japan.

              Do not forget that our ambassador erroneously reported that mobilization was taking place in Germany. In response, we began our transformation, and Nicholas and Wilhelm, with all their unwillingness to fight each other, fell into a vicious circle, demanding from each other to stop mobilization.
              And how sad it is - do not forget that RI was tightly on loans from French banks and it still needed money, but refusals have already started.

                I don't think I made a mistake. I believe that he did this deliberately in order to push Russia and Germany against each other. Surrounded by Rag, there were a lot of hawks who wanted war in order to get the Balkans and Straits. The Kaiser did not want a war with Russia, there were absolutely no reasons for a war between Russia and Germany, neither territorial disputes, nor economic ones, and therefore delayed the mobilization of the army to the last.

                  And then, as with Chekhov's gun - once mobilization was launched, then in the last act, a shot becomes mandatory. An idiotic, absolutely unnecessary war for Russia ..

              Well, since we returned to those days ... in April 1913, the army of the Kingdom of Bulgaria was 50 km away. from Constantinople and the Turks were crushed to smithereens. They offered the Russians to take the city with their own hands and give it to them. We received two war ultimatums from Austria-Hungary and the Republic of Ingushetia. And if you tug at the tail of one empire (AustroHungary) while you can still kick another (Ottoman) one, then the third (RI) power was not enough. So Constantinople remained Basurman ...

But the Russians never needed a strong Bulgaria in the Balkans and little mongrels like Serbia and Romania (then). And there would be no World War I. ...

                    Don't write nonsense. Germany and Austria-Hungary signed a treaty of alliance back in 1879, according to which, if Russia attacks Germany or Austria-Hungary, the second ally is obliged to declare war on Russia. So in 1913, Austria-Hungary would not have been able to "kick", it was Germany with Austria-Hungary and Turkey that would have kicked Russia. Considering that during WWI, Germany kept 70% of its forces on the Western Front, and at the same time managed to beat the Russian troops as she wanted and when she wanted, then Russia alone did not dance against the alliance of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Turkey, it was simply crushed in six months, capturing Moscow and St. Petersburg.

And secondly, Sazonov was a hawk who wanted war with Germany and Turkey, moreover, he served as an adviser to the ambassador in London under Benckendorf, and he, as you know, suffered from Anglomania, he did not know Russian, and by the way, after the start of WWI, lived in London, and died there. From this we can conclude that Sazonov was a conductor of British interests, and, willingly or unwillingly, could play the English tune, pitting Russia and Germany against each other.

What buoy still, in the era of the Internet, continue to fan the myth of the alliance of France, England and Russia? There was no alliance, there was only an alliance between France and Russia, concluded under Alexander III. Germany therefore began a war against Russia and France, as she was confident that England, the then world hegemon, would remain neutral, which was so fervently assured to the German ambassador by the then Foreign Minister of England, Sir Gray. Germany would not rock the boat, because to fight with England meant to fight with half of the world, with an empire over which the sun does not set, and having innumerable resources and the strongest fleet.

    If the tsar-rag had not entered the war in 1914 to help the "brothers"

    It was a formal occasion for the press, so to speak. In reality, RI was dragged into PMA because of foreign loans. French and British investors did their best.

    In a word, if in periods quite prosperous for Yugoslavia, Belgrade opposed Moscow, why should we be surprised at the current Belgrade "bends" ?.
    belay And they were? Rave.
    Since 1999 Yugoslavia has been controlled by NATO, what is the support for Lukashenka? fool
    The environment and isolation from us determine its policy. We will come - they will support and they will meet with flowers.

    it is not the first century that the pro-Russian population of Serbia has anti-Russian rulers. The same is true in Bulgaria. Say, that Serbia
    can't forgive Russia for not saving Yugoslavia from dismemberment and NATO bombing? So there is even more betrayal if
    pretending not to understand why Russia could not then save Serbia the same way it saved Syria now, And now blackmail Russia that Serbia will be an ally with those who will give more money. By the way, it is from Serbia that teachings and instructions for the first organizers grow
    Color revolutions. With pleasure and success, the Serbs worked on the creation of political technologies, how to carry out the Color Revolutions after the collapse of the USSR. Well, the American CIA, of course, noticed, appreciated and then applied it not only in the former republics of the USSR, but also in
    Africa and the Middle East. And there is no guarantee that the Serbs, creating these technologies for color revolutions, did not do this so that the American CIA did not notice it. So the product was produced and a buyer was found. And whoever trades will always betray, as long as whoever pays ...

    You know, the policy of full support by the Serbs of Russia in everything could be described in two words: "Suicidal heroism."
    What do we want from a small country? We ourselves are far from always able to support them. Okay, if we stood behind them as a mountain always and in everything ... but this is not.
    So they zigzag as they can.

          Do not evade, "not sent" you are with us. If there are no examples of "suicidal heroism" of the Serbs towards Russia, then why are you writing such words? You are either a scoundrel or a fool, fanning the myth of the "brothers" who have always thrown the Russians, and have seen only a cash cow in Russia.

    you can treat Zakharova differently, but the main thing is that she caught it in the picture. it is in Russia that the Serbs are considered brothers, but the Serbs themselves, when necessary, then a brother, and when not, they do not remember kinship. the article is correct, it should be added that, despite the fact that he studied in Russia, King Alexander quickly sided with the French when they offered more, just like later Tito. and after that, the Serbs surrendered Milosevic, to please the United States and the European Union. so you need to be careful with such a brother.

    Most puzzling was the phrase
    At the same time, Mrs. Brnabich made a softening curtsy addressed to Lukashenka personally. She expressed hope that the head of Belarus - "will not be offended by Belgrade joining the EU statement. We must not forget that the Belarusian leader was the only world leader who visited Serbia during the NATO bombing in 1999."
    With such a historical memory, Russia could rub any "little brother" with its muzzle on the table and declare, "Don't be offended. You have been sitting on our neck for many years!"
    We often all refer to some "political forces" cut off from the "brotherly people". But these "forces" were chosen by this people. So let this people swallow the dust raised by the "forces" running ahead!

    You can substitute a shoulder for someone who is ready to lean on. Vucic does not have this question - he does not need Russian support. That is why he was so angry with Zakharova that she pointed out the essence of what happened during the negotiations. The President of Serbia before Trump is not even close to a Russian prince at a reception with the Tatars during the Mongol-Tatar yoke. Not the power of the prevailing circumstances, but simple servility. What is there to discuss if a person who has surrendered the position of his country, in a fit of offended dignity, declares that he is ready to endure any humiliation for being interesting to his people. Oil painting. Zakharova did everything right. And then she apologized. All according to the law of the genre.

    The point is not that Serbia was and is becoming pro-Western, but that we, Russia, are poor, and no one wants to be friends with the poor, this is at the level of instincts, even among children in the yard. We have nothing to give Serbia, neither jobs, nor a large sales market for Serbia. There is no friendship in politics.

    What to do?

    Make yourself richer, beat off your sales market, raise duties on all imported goods, maintain your production. Look at the shelves of our stores there, except for the products, there is one import, which means that everything that you spent on imported goods, minus taxes, went abroad. There are almost one import of razors, toothpaste, washing powders, albeit of different brands, but all this is either Procter and Gambel (USA) or Henkel (Germany), although it is called in Russian Myth for example.

    Our interests must be protected first of all, our people are dying out and leaving the country !!! Our people do not see prospects, their heads are stuffed with pro-Western propaganda, which, against the background of our widespread poverty, increases its effect at times !!!

    It is necessary to reduce the number of labor migrants, because of them wages and the prestige of blue-collar jobs are falling. Why do we support them ?! They all drove the Russians out of their republics, and now we are giving them jobs. Yes, their legs will die out, let them help themselves, and we need to feed our people first of all !!!

    We need to develop our cities and provinces !!! Look at the United States, since 1991, they have increased the population by almost 100 million people !!! And as we were 146, we stayed so, we did not have to spend money on Belarus, but on ourselves !!! We would have 9 million people already at home would have received population growth by creating enterprises here in Russia and developing infrastructure, and not giving money to Lukashenka. And with Ukraine as well as with everyone else.

    We need to develop ourselves, our country, and not be offended by others that we pay them for love, but they don't want to love us.

      I absolutely agree, we will start to live well, all these exes themselves will begin to pull themselves up, but here we already have a choice of whom to accept and who to give a turn from the gate. And all these speculations about the internationalism of peoples have been sitting in us and our leadership since the time of the theories of Marx-Engels and, naturally, Vladimir Ilyich. But the great turns out to be wrong too.

    I will say to the author: there is no need to raise the historical dust. Serbia is in a very difficult position, surrounded on all sides. And this is connected with the foreign policy pursued by the USSR dissolved from Moscow and oriented towards the USA of the Russian Federation ("And what are our national interests?"). NATO bases are also located on the territory of the USSR. In such a situevina you have to stand for a day, but hold out for the night. Hear, there are battles raging across the river: it is the distant Red Army fighting ... Eh, if it were not bad boys ...

    Personally, I did not see a single step of Serbia from Russia. I must take into account the geographical location of this country. No one writes here, but keeps in mind the recent meeting in Washington. They wanted to put pressure on Serbia, but it did not work. Cyprus, being in the EU, managed to block sanctions against Belarus. You cannot view the policy of the state with military directness. And they correctly answered Zakharova. She is a diplomat.

    Who can now be frightened by the ghost of Great Serbia
    Yes, perhaps no one for the foreseeable future. There is zero hope for the emergence of a new Tito. And in the current position of the enclave surrounded by NATO without access to the sea, Serbia is doomed to enter Western structures relatively peacefully, or, in the event of another conflict, not peacefully.

    Quote: Keyser Soze
    Well, since we returned to those days ... in April 1913, the army of the Kingdom of Bulgaria was 50 km away. from Constantinople and the Turks were crushed to smithereens.

    This is somewhat different. The Bulgarian army suffered a heavy defeat in the attack of Constantinople, but managed to repulse the Turkish counteroffensive and took Odrin (Adrianople). Positional warfare was established at the front. The Turkish army was not beaten to any rattles. Before us stood the equipment of the position behind which was a large city, and the Turkish fleet dominated from the flanks. Troops from Anatolia began to come to the front to replace troops from Macedonia and Thrace.
