The authorities of Kosovo have prepared an application for accession to the European Union

The official authorities of the Republic of Kosovo have prepared an application for joining the European Union. It was signed by President Vjosa Osmani, Prime Minister Albin Kurti and the speaker of the parliament of this self-proclaimed state, Glauk Konyuftsa.

Osmani wrote about this on her page on the social network.

The signing of the document took place in a solemn atmosphere. Tomorrow it will be submitted to the EU leadership for consideration. Mrs. Osmani named December 14 historical for Kosovo in the afternoon, as today the application for EU accession was signed, and also marks the year since the founding of the Security Forces, which perform the functions of the army of the self-proclaimed state.

So far there has been no response from Brussels. The situation is complicated by the fact that the five countries that are members of the European Union did not recognize Kosovo as an independent and sovereign state. We are talking about Spain, Greece, Slovakia, Cyprus and Romania.

Before that, the Serbian authorities announced their intention to apply to the authorities of these countries, as well as Hungary, to block the Kosovo application.

Earlier, law enforcement officers of Kosovo arrested an ex-employee of the local police, an ethnic Serb Dejan Pantic, who recently retired from the authorities along with several of his colleagues. In protest against this, representatives of the Serbian population living in the north of the republic began to block the roads with barricades.

    If Kosovo is in the EU, then Serbia is in the Russian Federation. Why not, or they have other options.

      The Serbs themselves have long made it clear that their future is in the EU. They are now even gradually switching from Cyrillic to Latin, following the example of the Croats. Latin. Which in itself is a marker. Everyone who wants to go to Europe is translated into Latin. As an example, the same Turkey, which wrote a lot in Arabic script a century ago (and for centuries), but after Attatyurk switched to Latin. from Arabic script to Latin. Or the same Kazakhstan is also gradually switching to Latin. The West sets such a condition for everyone. Well, the balance of power between Serbia and Kosovo does not matter. All the same, the EU and NATO will decide everything for their future members. But who cares.
      . According to CAST, Serbia's national defense strategy is built around a model of territorial defense. The total strength of the regular component of the armed forces is 28,15 thousand people. Of these, 13,25 thousand military personnel are ground forces (including the river flotilla). The air force and air defense forces number 5100 people. ... The country also has an organized reserve of 50,15 thousand people.
      The combat strength of the ground forces can be divided into two components: the regular component (special forces brigade, mechanized brigade, 3 motorized infantry brigades, artillery brigade, pontoon bridge battalion, radiation, chemical and biological protection battalion, communications battalion, military police battalion) and the reserve component ( 8 light infantry territorial defense brigades).


      .These are 229 tanks, 506 armored combat vehicles of other classes, 449 artillery pieces, 48 ​​self-propelled anti-tank missile systems, 77 short-range anti-aircraft missile systems, 17 short-range anti-aircraft missile systems, 44 small-caliber anti-aircraft artillery guns, 17 portable anti-aircraft missile systems, 6 reconnaissance - shock unmanned aerial vehicles. ... There are 14 fighters, 17 attack aircraft, 10 reconnaissance aircraft, 8 light transport aircraft, 44 training and combat training aircraft, 6 combat helicopters, 52 multi-purpose helicopters and 8 transport helicopters. 15 short-range anti-aircraft missile systems and 6 short-range anti-aircraft missile and gun systems.
      As for the Kosovo security forces, the total strength of the regular component of the Kosovo armed formations is about 2500 people. Plus, there is an organized reserve - 800 people. Thus, the military forces of Serbia and Kosovo are not comparable.

        It is appropriate to recall here the comparison of the strength and capabilities of the ukrovermacht and the forces of the Russian army :)) There was a dozen times difference in favor of Russia. And for other positions - in the hundreds ...
        So ... you hardly doubt that if a military conflict occurs between Serbia and Kosovo, then Kosovo will instantly have everything it needs, any weapons and weapons, armored vehicles and aircraft, any means of communication, fire and rear support, satellite data surveillance, thousands of mercenaries dressed in Kosovo uniforms ... And Serbia will simply be crushed without even noticing. If Russia is barely holding this blow from collective NATO, then the Serbs will surrender on the second day!

      Ms. Osmani called December 14 a historic day for Kosovo, as the application for EU membership was signed today,
      Oooh how cool the whole application is submitted. Interestingly, when did this historic day come true in Ukraine?

        Yes, something about two months ago ... The funny thing is that the Chewbaccas rejoice at this fact like children.
        It's strange ... just apply - and enjoy it yourself ??? Hmmm... Yesterday I submitted an application for registration of my cat as a presidential candidate. What are we to do with him now - to declare a day off?

      Yes, everyone respects and respects the strong. The snotty and the weak are not loved anywhere - even the west, even the east, even the north, even the south ...

    Cyrillic and Latin go hand in hand in the Serbian language since the 19th century, the EU was not known at that time.

    but after Attatyurk, she switched to the Latin alphabet. Cool, right? Switch from Arabic script to Latin script
    in Arabic, vowels are not displayed in writing, there are only vocalizations. This is terribly bad with Turkish with its vowel stress. The Latin alphabet allowed people to write normally. There were huge problems with Arbas script in practice. The same story was with the Japanese language and Chinese characters and their reading in the 8th century.

    The West puts such a condition before everyone

    sometimes a cigar is just a cigar

    similarly, in the Soviet Union, the Central Asian peoples switched from Arabic writing to Cyrillic.

    I wouldn't be too surprised if they were accepted into this snake nest on an expedited basis.
