The great theft

Conversation with Łukasz Pawłowski for Kultura liberalna magazine: In all the Balkan countries you can hardly find decent media. Along with deprofessionalization, there is the process of ‘dumbification’…

History’s blindspots

The bloody epilogue of such an important project as Yugoslavia demanded special attention of historians, but it didn’t receive it. There are neither successful nor unsuccessful books about it.

National tensions

Vucic has once again retreated when faced with the demands of the Serbian intellectual elite: first he gave up the sale of Telekom, and then he withdrew from the abolition of national pensions.

Matryoshka politics

In the pre-election atmosphere in Serbia, which is being fired up, the visit of Russian deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin seemed like the opening of the famous Russian doll matryoshka.

Police in the campaign

What was the point of the mass arrests – is it a beginning of the election campaign, or an attempt to distract the public from the cracks in SPP (Gasic, Mirkovic) and from the new report of the Anti-corruption Council?

Instead of acting as allies against the false refugee policy, Croatia and Serbia are blowing the war horns and preparing for a new historic battle. The refugees are not important anymore.

The horror on the Greek-Macedonian border has finally raised the question what the EU has done and hasn’t done; what the citizens are to do in the midst of events which will mark this century.

The quagmire of the nineties

One should hope that Vucic won’t propose to the “leaders of the countries that took part in the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia” to establish “a collective day of remembrance for all victims, regardless of their nationality”.

Crime and stone

“The investigation will show” that the incident was triggered by some “marginal groups”, but we’ve all heard spontaneous cries of the victims’ families aimed at Vucic while he was fleeing Potocari.

Denial

FAMA
Camus wrote about the world without direction after World War II. How could it happen again today? How is Srebrenica possible? How is the concerted abolition of 20th century crimes possible?

Hungarian Vizsla

The prime minister didn’t explain how the Serbian border police managed to prevent 615 migrants from entering Serbia in one day. Did they classify them according to their skin colour, the shape of their skulls…
