Gas scam

What is all the excitement about? 1,000 cubic meters of gas coming to Serbia via Ukraine and Hungary costs $270, but with the new pipeline the price would be reduced to $155.

Vukovar 1991-2021

DwP – The fall of Vukovar, the birthplace of the Communist party of Yugoslavia, also represents the defeat of the Bolshevik project, in the sense of the country that died there, and globally.

Serbedzija – persona non grata

As soon as it was announced that Rade Serbedzija will have a concert, it was sold out. As soon as it was announced that Rade Serbedzija’s concert in Vinkovci was sold out – it was banned.

A culture of insulting reason

The photo of a girl holding a book with the question “Do you have trouble with grammar like people from the south of Serbia?” is a reminder that there is still life in a morally infected environment…

The cunning of fools

If there was any room for doubt, now it’s gone – the government led by Aleksandar Vucic has decided to sacrifice the health and lives of the citizens of Serbia for the sake of its own ratings.

What is the Serbian world to us

DwP – Although the Serbian world really is a copy – or, a ripoff, if you will – of the Russian world, the role of those two worlds in their political contexts is completely different…

Death and us

When, how, and why did we, the citizens of Serbia, decide to simply come to terms with illness, even death? In addition to all the (self) praise for the abundance of vaccines and new Covid hospitals…

Central celebration

The real star of this program was Milorad Dodik, who could not be clearer: “I have to let you in on a secret. We don’t like it when you call us Bosnians. We are not Bosnians, I am a Serb, I write in Cyrillic…”

Nationalization of Nikola Tesla

A fantastic tragicomedy could be written around the fact that the citizens of Croatia have chosen Nikola Tesla as one of the figures who will be featured on Croatian euro banknotes.

Interest

Telekom will pay an incredible 100 million euro per season, or a total of 600 million euros, for the exclusive broadcasting rights of the upcoming 6 seasons of English Premier League matches.

How knowledge grows

Some of us are only now learning that, along with knowledge, ignorance has been growing in Petnica for years. Ignorance of abuse, ignorance of coercion, ignorance of blackmail.

Bad joke

I have never before heard a president of a country, even Serbia, in the middle of a five-hour speech on Kosovo calling on the people to make children to fill Serbian empty factories.

One woman’s struggle

The final verdict against Ratko Mladic coincided with another verdict. I am talking about the decades-long struggle of Fata Orlovic from Srebrenica, which symbolizes the life of Muslims in Eastern Bosnia.

Black armband

DwP – Black cardboard squares, one square meter each, were piled one on top of the other in front of Palace Albanija and hundreds of people would walk up to them and take them, without any order.

What is scandalous?

The reason that has been given for the recall of the ambassador is that he signed a letter of support to the LGBT+ community in Poland, without first informing the minister or the ministry.

Vucic and Ljotic

Vucic couldn’t have chosen a better day to rehabilitate Dimitrije Ljotic than Victory Day. The logic is simple. Ljotic’s men, fascists though they may have been, sang Serbian songs. Thus, they were patriots.

When is now?

A group of twenty or so military-age men is marching through the main street in Borovo Selo, chanting “Kill the Serb”, singing “Oh my Croatian mother, we will slaughter the Serbs” and similar songs…

Oscars and unrealistic expectations

Now that the Oscars are over, leaving many around here disappointed or thrilled that the film ‘Quo vadis, Aida?’ didn’t win, it is worth pointing out the continuous clash with reality in these parts.

Gomorrah

Marinika Tepic informed the public about sexual abuse of women and girls in Jagodina. Her visit to the forbidden city and the courage she needed to face Palma’s “Tigers” caused great turbulence.

Ferenc Fehér Square

We are very disturbed by the effort to get rid of the name of the poet and translator Ferenc Fehér, because his name means nothing to you – nothing, perhaps, that you are prepared to acknowledge.

Concert of the world

In the recent article in Foreign Affairs, Richard Haas and Charles Kupchan argue for the Global Concert, or Concert of the World, by analogy with the Concert of Europe in the 19th century.

Your money or your life

Which is better – to work in spite of the pandemic and save your health while risking losing your job? Which is scarier – to end up in a hospital with pneumonia or on the street, broke?

Lynch society

The first thing we think of when we talk about lynching, is that it is the opposite of the rule of law. Today, that practice is mostly eradicated, but we are witnessing another phenomenon: media lynching.

Land of the polygraph

The machine doesn’t lie – said Vucic about the polygraph. So, if the machine says that a person is lying, then it must be true. Vucic wasn’t hooked up to a polygraph machine when he said this…
