"Islamic state" in the Balkans?

Refugees from the Middle East rushed through the Balkans to Europe

Refugees and immigrants in Europe are a familiar thing, in the Balkans they are also not uncommon. In the last 25 years, the peninsula has experienced an avalanche of displacement, resettlement, eviction, and the flight of people from wars. Serbs from Croatia, Kosovo, the Muslim part of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), Croats from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jews from Croatia and Bosnia fled. Last year, Kosovo Albanians unexpectedly rose from their seats; They even talked about 100 of thousands who crossed the border with Serbia and rushed through Hungary to Europe.

This movement was so unexpected and large-scale that for a long time Belgrade could not understand its reasons. The Kosovo authorities claimed that the Albanians had tore the rumors that had appeared from their homes that many jobs had opened up in Germany. Serbian authorities and Europe tended to highlight unresolved social problems in Kosovo as the main reason for the great Albanian relocation. It seems to us that the flow of Albanians unexpectedly rushed to other countries is the pressure on Europe, the desire to accelerate the recognition of Kosovo by European and world institutions. Albanians also became active in Macedonia, Montenegro, and Greece. Even the statements of the Tyrants have become more radical. However, all these were processes within the post-Yugoslav space, so to speak, internal migration.

For some time now, a completely different phenomenon has become noticeable: flows of refugees from the Middle East, mainly from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, have flowed to the Balkans. According to the official data of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), for the first time such refugees in the Balkans appeared in 2008 year, when 77 people asked for asylum in Serbia. In 2013, they were already 5000. And in the next year, 2014, this figure jumped more than threefold - to 16.490 people.

In 2015, this phenomenon acquired a grandiose scale: in the first five months alone, 22.182 people crossed the Serbian border. These are official data, according to which "refugees arrive in Serbia through Macedonia from the territories of the Middle East and Afghanistan covered by war." 95% of them come from Syria and Afghanistan. However, official data are clearly underestimated, they do not give a complete picture.

The route of the overwhelming majority of refugees runs through Turkey, from there they go to Greece by sea, then cross the border of Macedonia, then go or go towards the Serbian border, cross it and go to the small border town of Presevo, 90% of whose population are Albanians. With the help of the Red Cross and the city authorities, a headquarters for emergency situations was created in Prešev, the reception of refugees and their accommodation was organized. The UNHCR delegations and the Doctors Without Borders organization visited there, set up tents, and organized first aid.

There are actually two streams: one is legal, the other is illegal, where refugees are helped to cross the border for money using “goat paths”. They are transported in closed trucks, freight cars, helping to cross the border, bypassing border points. Every day, in Prešev, 300-500 people seek asylum. So, only in June, 15 thousands of emigrants arrived in Serbia. And the problem did not arise in June ...

How many Muslims from the Middle East have sought asylum in Serbia? Some publications say that for the first 4 months of this year 10 thousand people arrived in Serbia from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries, and by the end of the year they will arrive to 30 thousand. Serbian Interior Minister N. Stefanovich talks about 30 to thousands of those already in Serbia, plus another one and a half million (!) Accumulated on the border between Syria and Turkey. According to our calculations, in the first half of 2015, at least 60 thousand people have already crossed the border of Serbia.

According to the UNHCR, worldwide the number of people who were forced to leave their homes reaches almost 60 million. Now most of all are refugees from Syria (3,9 million), Afghanistan (2,6 million) and Somalia (1,1 million). “It is the refugees from these countries that we most often meet on the streets, bus stops and parks in Serbia,” says UNHCR Head Hans Friedrich Choder.

It must be said, UNHCR responds to a wave of refugees in Serbia rather curious. Previously, the refugees who were rushing to Serbia were not noticed. And now Choder calls Serbia “a democratic country in the heart of Europe” and praises the Serbian government for not closing the borders. And Shoder promises assistance to the Serbian authorities in the “functional building of the system” of receiving refugees. That is, the UN stands for the full opening of borders to refugees from Syria and Iraq, and in fact there are 15 millions of them.

Another interesting fact: the flow of refugees, which is moving to Serbia, spontaneously or not, chooses a direction through Hungary, ignoring parts of the Serbian border with Romania and Croatia. This year, according to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, 40.500 citizens sought refuge in Hungary, of which 23.800 came from Kosovo, the rest from the Middle East. In Budapest, the avalanche of refugees did not arouse enthusiasm. Without looking back at the European Commission, Hungary made an independent decision to close the border and to build a high wall on the border. About the same talked Croatia. The European Commission criticized the "Hungarian" project, but did not solve the problem. This increases the number of Muslims remaining in Serbia and Macedonia. In difficult negotiations with the EU, Belgrade wants to demonstrate its openness and declares that it will welcome all refugees from the East.

Once again we will pay attention to the fact that part of the refugees remain in Macedonia, part, having crossed the border, settles in the south of Serbia in areas with a Muslim majority. And someone goes to the cities and villages of the deep regions of Serbia. Another important detail: refugees go without documents; they receive certificates and documents “with words” only in Serbia. According to international laws and the Serbian Law on Refugees, when people flee from war-ridden areas, crossing the border is not considered illegal. Therefore, they are treated with care in Serbia. The Refugees Center has been set up in Banja Koviljac, another 4 temporary accommodation center has been opened - Bogovadzha (70 km from Belgrade), Krnjača (a village on a mountain plateau near the Serbian-Montenegrin border), Senica (in southern Serbia) and Tutin (Raska district, on the border with Kosovo). All of them are under the jurisdiction of the Republican Commissariat for Refugees and Emigrants.

Europe reacts very sluggishly to all this. The text of the agreement on the distribution of refugees across EU countries is still not ready. Over the next two years, European countries are expected to voluntarily distribute around 60 thousands of Middle Eastern refugees who are currently in Italy and Greece on a voluntary basis. Nobody agrees to quotas. Therefore, the Balkan countries of Orthodox culture, faced with a flood of immigrants from Muslim countries in the Middle East, will have to solve the problems of their own survival.

For Serbia, which cannot overcome the consequences of wars and economic crisis, which 20 has not been able to completely solve the problem of Serbian refugees from Croatia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, this is a terrible blow to the economy. However, not only. There is another, almost invisible problem ...

Are all refugees refugees?

While in Belgrade in June, I noticed that young people who do not speak Serbian and do not resemble refugees began to meet regularly in the city. They usually walk in threes, try not to stand out, although their athletic physique is striking. Solid troika "aliens" seen in other Serbian cities. Information in the media about them sketchy. Most of the “refugees” who have appeared in Serbia are males no older than 27, 94% are of the Islamic religion, 56% are without families. They do not like to be photographed, not constrained in cash ...

"Islamic state" in the Balkans?


The first thing that comes to mind: under the guise of refugees, Islamists who are well trained and have passed through “hot spots” can flood the country. Being distributed on the territory of Serbia and concentrating on the south, they can easily become a force that will come out in support of the "Balkan Muslim Brotherhood." The newspaper "Telegraph" writes: it can not be that among the refugees there was not a single terrorist, given that the majority of refugees come from war-torn Syria! Moreover, the majority of these alleged refugees enter Serbia in organized groups. According to some reports, now there are about 1000 "jihad warriors" in Serbia, of which around 200 are in Belgrade. The rest are located in Ledintsy, Zemun, Palilula, Medakovich. Among them are many Kosovars. The money they receive from Vienna.

We read in the comments to the articles of the electronic Serbian publications about refugees: “Just look at these so-called emigrants. All young, capable of serving men without documents. Why don't they have any documents? Help them issued in Serbia only on the basis of words. Who ordered it? After all, these are the future brigades of Islamists ... ”-“ The influx of these refugees is part of the plan to Islamize Europe! Alo, people, wake up! ”-“ I’m not sure about the Islamization of Europe, but the Islamization of Serbia is for sure. ”



As criminalist Zlatko Nikolic says, among hundreds of refugees it is easy to “get lost” to one “sleeping” terrorist. The task of such singles is to hide in a crowd and wait for an order. Their actions are coordinated by local Albanian Wahhabis from Prizren, Bujanovac and Gracanica, they also recruit new supporters. Nikolic believes that several tens of thousands of Muslims who arrived from abroad are now moving freely in Serbia, and the number of Wahhabis reaches several hundred.

The Islamic State makes itself felt. One of his representatives in a video message to his brothers in BiH called to fight for the victory of Islam in Bosnia and Serbia. “Put them bombs under the hood of cars, blow up houses, pour poison into drinks, food, let them die from poison, kill them everywhere you meet, in Bosnia, in Serbia, in Sandzak. You can do this, Allah will help you. ” This was said by an Albanian from Kosovo, Ridwan Hachifi, who was famous for his cruelty in Syria. The press flashed reports that the attacks in Serbia were preparing for the Orthodox holiday Vidovdan (June 28). General Momir Stojanovic, a former senior security officer, claimed that the Kosovo terrorists were planning three terrorist attacks in the period between 25 and June 28 in the central and southern regions of Serbia.



28 June, a meeting of the board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Serbia was held on the issue of internal security in the country. The same problem of the influx of refugees was discussed. In Macedonia, apparently, the danger was realized, and at the end of June the parliament passed a law according to which refugees can stay in the country for no more than 72 hours. In BiH, the Service for Work with Foreigners started activity on obtaining biometric data of all foreigners in the territory of BiH. Money for this in the amount of 800 thousand dollars was allocated by the US government (?). In Sarajevo in February 2015, a trial began in the case of Hussein Bosnich, who propagandized Islamic radicalism in BiH, and called for membership in terrorist organizations.

Frankly spoke about the danger of Islamic radicalism in the Balkans, the President of the Republika Srpska M. Dodik. There is evidence, he said, that in Sarajevo and Ilidzh, 34 is being built in thousands of apartments for Arabs, and 380 citizens of BiH are fighting on the side of the “Islamic State”. According to the data available to the authorities of the Republika Srpska, said M. Dodik, there are 3400 potentially dangerous entities on the territory of BiH capable of committing terrorist acts (there are no Serbs among them). It should also be noted that in the territory of the Muslim-Croatian federation in BiH 5 operates factories for the production weapons.

The Macedonian portal Netpress writes that oppositionist Zoran Zaev is preparing a “black and bloody scenario” for Macedonia with the participation of radical Islamic elements. Italian police reported that there is a camp in Albania where Islamists are trained. In Italy and Albania, people who recruited fighters for the Islamic State in the Balkans were arrested. Vojislav Sheshel, the leader of the Serbian radicals, publicly warns that Washington is preparing Operation Eagle, which includes conducting a series of terrorist attacks in Serbia and activating terrorist groups already concentrated in Nis, Chacak, Kragujevac, Belgrade. Groups of 170 people in Belgrade and 20-30 people in other Serbian cities, according to V. Sešelj, are just waiting for a signal to take up arms. Synchronized terrorist attacks in large cities and crowded places will draw attention to themselves, and at this time the main events will take place in the south of Serbia, where Albanians will take another step towards unification. At this time, the Kosovo Albanians will move north to Kosovska Mitrovica. Tirana, which previously dissociated itself from all events outside the borders of Albania, now says that it cannot control the discontent of Albanians in the Balkans, that Albanians can rise in the name of their dreams to unite all the territories with the majority of the Albanian population.

Recent events in Serbia, Kosovo, BiH and Macedonia should be linked together. On the one hand, in all these countries, a model of external governance was consistently introduced, suppressing manifestations of state sovereignty, but Washington did not achieve complete success here. The Republika Srpska strengthens its position, tries to defend the independence and integrity of the country of Macedonia, Serbia does not recognize Kosovo at all, and all these countries continue to rely on Russia and do not break relations with it. And it is necessary for Americans to "solve the problem" with the recalcitrant Balkan Slavs. On the other hand, the growth of the activity of Islamic radicalism in the Balkans is evident. In the south of Serbia and in Montenegro there are Islamist organizations “Wahhabia” and “Red Rose”, in Macedonia - “Tarikat”, in Kosovo and in the north of Albania - “Al Qaeda” cells. In BiH, Islamists advocate a unified Muslim Bosnia, organizers and perpetrators of terrorist attacks. Their goal is the formation of the “Green Transversal,” that is, a continuous belt of Muslim states in the underbelly of Europe. And it seems that the implementation of this plan has come to an end.

It is impossible not to notice that the influx of refugees into the Balkans intensified in the 2014 year - when the new terrorist group Islamic State was suddenly brought to the forefront of international politics. Apparently, the "Balkan" scenario "has already been formed. At the same time, Albanians will rise with weapons in Macedonia and in the south of Serbia - in the Presevo Valley, Sandzak. Kosovo police will try to occupy areas with a Serbian population. In central Serbia and BiH, several acts of distraction will be carried out. Police in Macedonia and Serbia will launch operations against armed groups of terrorists. As a result of provocations in the clashes, peaceful Albanians will die, and then all Islamists in Serbia, Macedonia and BiH, waiting for orders, will take up arms, speaking to the aid of the “perishing” Muslim Brotherhood. Collisions will gain wide scope. Military actions of varying intensity will cover Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, and BiH. With weakened (“reformed” in American terminology) armies and police, it will be extremely difficult to defend the Balkan countries subjected to Islamist aggression. The most difficult will be the Republika Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina. "Resolve the conflict" will come there or NATO members, or new Islamist detachments.



It seems to me that the conflict will be unleashed in late August - early September. Russia has very little time.

      Suvorov still dealt with the Basurmans in the Balkans. And the Serbs, it seems, will soon begin to cut in the second round. And why do not the Islamists migrate to the same Albania? There, as it were, by faith.

        Are you so naive? They don’t want to live, but to kill! more land - more caliphate, as they say they need peace, ALL the world! they are paid for it by the green American presidents, plus the brain moved by pseudo-Islam, understand ?! Once a murderer, easily and a second time, especially if he is unscrupulous.

      Actual article, it seems war is coming, in Eastern Europe. Although the genocide perpetrated by the militants, the likeness of the one that we observe in Syria and Iraq, the language does not turn out to be called a war. War is army to army, and this is ordinary fascism. A lot of courage and skill do not need to kill unarmed children, women and the elderly. It’s just a sneaky p.o.do.s. You shouldn’t take such prisoners, you must destroy them on the spot.

      Of course, they won’t listen to me, but if I were an agent of the security service, and if only I knew that they had thrown a threat, that the militants had lurked among the inhabitants of the entire city and even the country, and there are so many of them that you won’t catch everyone, and whoever you want to catch, he’ll take the hostages will be victims, then there is only one way out: to distribute weapons to the population, and to announce the situation on TV, and to urge the population to take photos and videos, and send, make calls to security agencies if they see suspicious people or things. To organize from ordinary people (so many cops not enough) national militants who have the right to stop anyone and demand documents for inspection. Only in this way, otherwise a bunch of refugees, victims and terrorist attacks.

    Such an impression - THE WORLD DID ARE MIND. Europe was already suffocating from unemployed emigrants sitting on the neck of the state, the suburbs of large cities turned into garbage dumps and closed areas on a national principle. So no, on a wave of anti-Russian actions, they further aggravate the financial condition of states and increase unemployment. But this OE is not enough. All this hype with the passage and distribution of refugees from the Middle East and North Africa to all countries of the United Europe raises a legitimate question about the state of mental health of the governments of these countries.

      It seems that sooner or later Europe, as a culture, will be destroyed. If you do not take action now, then soon the number of so-called. refugees will be quite comparable to the indigenous population. Considering that the bulk of newcomers are not going to change their mentality and habits, they will begin to dictate their own rules. Then we'll look at the "tolerance" of the Europeans.

    This is what close friendship with American cowboys leads to: under various pretexts, shatter and destroy in the end the historical and cultural layer of Europe, load up problems with unhappy tourists from Africa to their ears. Europeans will not fight with Russia, and this rabble will be in the future. Far away are the ponders of democracy from across the ocean.

    An ISIS attack on the Balkans could happen around July 28, security experts warn. They also note that the number of militants in the Balkans (ISIS supporters) is more than one hundred thousand. At least five thousand of them are very well prepared and ready to fight ...
    This is how the electoral “human rights” position of the West led to the destabilization of the Balkans too ....

    The topic is interesting and .... not fully disclosed. And if a little speculation?

    The first fact is that there is a flow of refugees to Europe. Moreover, from areas, to put it mildly, not Christian. How many terrorists are there - Allah knows. Since I am an unbeliever and do not believe in Allah, no one knows.
    The second fact - the EU is actively building refugee camps, and for some reason in Eastern Europe. There were reports of camps in Hungary, Slovakia, the Baltic states and ... Ukraine. There is a subitem in this process. They don’t want to let them into France and Germany, but with joy in Eastern Europe.

    And now my speculations. If the EU adopts a law that a person who has served in the army receives citizenship of any country in the Schengen area, then there will be no shortage of people willing to take up arms. And then the Russian Federation will receive an army of motivated murderers and sadists right on its borders. This is not the APU. The "refugees" have zero morals and even less. Plus some kind of "jihad".

    The conclusion of the paranoid (I so affectionately called myself) Refugees are cannon fodder that Europe will throw into the war against the Russian Federation. Meat is not a pity (in the Middle East there is more than enough of this good), but "winter is coming." The ending of the article is relevant "Russia has very little time."

      Conclusion of paranoid (I called myself so affectionately)


      You are very self-critical. Your assumption is very bold, but not without logic, because at the same time, two birds with one stone are killed:
      - Weakening by the war of Russia
      - Massive reduction in the active amount, and male, the so-called refugees as a result of the war.

      I wish this was just speculation.

        There were the Starks of Winterfell who said "winter is coming." But this is fantasy. There was a US Churchill who, for many years before the war, said "the war is near." He was also considered insane.

        I also hope that all this is the speculation and horror of the old grumbler. But ... political (and more importantly economic) microseisms point to war. Whether critical energy will turn into an earthquake or come to naught - we cannot predict. But you need to prepare.

        My opinion is that war is inevitable. This does not follow from some complicated inferences. The war lies in the nature of the modern economic world order. No matter what they say about post-capitalism, the post-industrial model and other smart things, the financial pyramid is collapsing.

        By the way, the ideologues of "globalism" are now just chopping the branch on which they sit (They are chopping the wrong bitches :-)). Sanctions are a direct undermining of the foundations of globalism and the principles of the WTO. That is, this model has exhausted itself. And as a consequence: sanctions are a prelude to war. Either they must be canceled and go to peace, or they must be toughened up and go to war. Old man Marx had no other idea.

          being in Brussels at a meeting of EU foreign ministers, where, in particular, the situation with illegal migration to Europe from Africa was discussed, Arseniy Yatsenyuk proposed to Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi a truly "brilliant" solution to the problem. This was reported by the NTV channel, citing a source close to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry. Yatsenyuk said that with the financial support of the EU, he could deploy in southeastern Ukraine, camps for illegal migrants from Africa and Asia. In particular, according to him, Kherson, Nikolaev, Odessa regions can be used for this purpose.

      Not certainly in that way.
      Europe in its current form of the GCA is not needed. Need European Caliphate. The ground for pan-European massacre is actively preparing. That's when the last Frenchman and Portuguese will be sent to hell, then they will trample on us. The SGA wants to provide the IG with a production base, technology, etc. for a major war with Russia. And this is the second wave. The first goes through Syria and Iran from the south, while with a creak. Perhaps these waves are somehow coordinated in time. So we have time. And work in the right directions is also underway. As a result, as always, with God's help, Victory will be ours!

    The most difficult problem is the capture of commanding heights in the camp with the help of Islamists.

    Actual for Russia, currently somewhat pushed to the second plan because of the Crimea and the Donbass.

    But she will return, she cannot be dismissed by the creation of the next Minnets and the introduction of lessons of tolerance (translated - tolerance) in schools.

    Is the Russian people ready to continue to lose their demographic strength, step by step giving way to other peoples in their historical place on the historical territory?

    The Russian government does not see such problems.

    For Serbia, which cannot overcome the consequences of wars and economic crisis, which 20 has not been able to completely solve the problem of Serbian refugees from Croatia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, this is a terrible blow to the economy. However, not only. There is another, almost invisible problem ...


    But there are so many visible answers to mysterious problems. To begin with, Serbia receives EU funds for the reception of refugees. This is a rather large contribution to the country's GDP. Further, the resolution of the consequences of the war is not a problem of Serbia, it is the policy of Western countries that fully regulate the political and economic life of the country. Serbia in fact, on an economic leash with a political muzzle. It sounds ugly, but the betrayal of the Serbian people, I would even say, of the Serbian civilization, began neither today nor yesterday. Today already berries.

    As for the "Islamic state" in the Balkans, it already exists in the form of Serbs who converted to Islam and called themselves Albanians. You can doubt that you can tell a Serb from a Hungarian, but an Albanian from a Serb is unlikely. These scattered ten million (together with Albania) Muslims make up the so-called "Islamic state". But their Islam is somewhat strange, the Albanian diaspora in Europe is one of the most influential criminal groups. Prostitution, drugs, weapons, racketeering (exclusively ethnic). ISIS ideologists in such a Balkan IS will be slaughtered in a few days. That is, there is no support and foundation for the ideas of the caliphate. Albanians have different goals, different methods and different Islam. Serbia, as it might seem from reading the article, is not a swollen bladder from Muslim immigrants, but just a lock chamber on the way to Europe. There are flat rates for completing travel to Europe. Who and how earns to pay for those, you can guess. Some carry, others accept and find employment. Moreover, the interests of the Serbian and Albanian organized crime groups, in this case, coincide.

    [qSion Protocols Middle East Refugees Rush Through Europe to the Balkans

    Refugees and emigrants in Europe are a familiar thing, they are not uncommon in the Balkans. In the past 25 years, the peninsula has experienced an avalanche of displacement, relocation, eviction, and flight of people from wars. Serbs fled from Croatia, Kosovo, the Muslim part of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), Croats from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jews from Croatia and Bosnia. Last year, Kosovo Albanians unexpectedly rose from their seats; they even talked about 100 thousand who crossed the border with Serbia and rushed through Hungary to Europe.

    This movement was so unexpected and widespread that Belgrade for a long time could not figure out its reasons. Kosovo authorities claimed that Albanians had been rumored from their homes by rumors that a large number of jobs had been opened in Germany. The Serbian authorities and Europe were inclined to single out unresolved social problems in Kosovo as the main reason for the great resettlement of the Albanians. It seems to us, however, that the flood of Albanians that suddenly surged into other countries is pressure on Europe, a desire to accelerate the recognition of Kosovo by European and world institutions. Albanians also intensified in Macedonia, Montenegro, Greece. Even Tirana's statements have become more radical. However, all these were processes within the post-Yugoslav space, so to speak, internal migration.

    For some time now, a completely different phenomenon has become noticeable: flows of refugees from the Middle East, mainly from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, have flowed to the Balkans. According to the official data of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), for the first time such refugees in the Balkans appeared in 2008 year, when 77 people asked for asylum in Serbia. In 2013, they were already 5000. And in the next year, 2014, this figure jumped more than threefold - to 16.490 people.

    In 2015, this phenomenon took on a grandiose scale: in the first five months alone, 22.182 people crossed the Serbian border. This is the official data, according to which "refugees arrive in Serbia through Macedonia from the war-torn territories of the Middle East and Afghanistan." 95% of them come from Syria and Afghanistan. However, the official data are clearly underestimated, they do not give a complete picture.

    The route of the overwhelming majority of refugees runs through Turkey, from there they get to Greece by sea, then cross the Macedonian border, then go or walk towards the Serbian border, cross it and head to the small border town of Presevo, 90% of whose population is Albanian. In Preseva, with the help of the Red Cross and the city authorities, an emergency headquarters was created, refugees were received and accommodated. Delegations from the UNHCR and Médecins Sans Frontières visited, set up tents, and organized first aid.

    There are actually two streams: one legal, the other illegal, where refugees are helped to cross the border for money by "goat paths". They are transported in closed trucks, freight cars, help to cross the border, bypassing border points. 300-500 people seek asylum in Presevo every day. This means that only in June 15 thousand emigrants arrived in Serbia. And the problem did not arise in June ...

    How many total Muslims from the Middle East sought asylum in Serbia? Some publications say that in the first 4 months of this year, 10 thousand people arrived in Serbia from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries, and up to the end of the year up to 30 thousand will arrive. The Minister of Internal Affairs of Serbia N. Stefanovich speaks of 30 thousand of those who are already in Serbia, plus another one and a half million (!) Accumulated on the border of Syria and Turkey. According to our estimates, in the first half of 2015, at least 60 thousand people have already crossed the Serbian border.

    It seems to be a pity for the Serbs, yet they have survived so much together, my sister went to Belgrade in 2013, says that they treat Russians very well. And on the other hand, it’s not a pity that they choose such rulers who are more important to get into the EU and NATO (for which they are required to recognize the independence of Kosovo and the genocide of Muslims) than to preserve their territory, their country. Something reminiscent of the Tagged in the USSR.
    But Europe is definitely not a pity. After all, the Islamists will not stop in the Balkans, they will go further. In addition, Germany has a large Turkish community, there is nothing to say about France.
