After the president announced a “civil war”, the prime minister rushed to Moscow to get the “weapons” and the “tools”. And not just any weapons, but defensive ones, so that Serbia could protect its territory.
Putting the institutions of the security sector into the service of personal and party interests jeopardizes the democratic order, human rights and lives of the citizens.
All the agreements among competing political elites do not by themselves constitute reconciliation.
Our teacher asked: “If 10,000 refugees enter Croatia and 3,000 go to Slovenia and 5,000 to Hungary, how many refugees are left in Croatia?”
Instead of an obituary for Olivera Milosavljevic (1951-2015): The author traces the ways in which the stereotype of Albanians as implacable enemies is created.
Are those Syrians crazy? Don’t they read newspapers, watch TV? Don’t they see the state of the Europe they so naively rush to?
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.
In everyday Serbia, an ethnic Albanian couldn’t be a good man and a good police officer. It can only happen by a tangle of circumstances which include internet and social media.

The manipulation of the idea of ZSO as a miniature Republika Srpska, is perhaps the most serious problem which could hinder the normalization of Pristina-Belgrade relations.
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.
There is an innovation here – Vucic now clothes the radical party hooliganism in the suit of a great statesman and a peacemaker, something that he personally, as well as his servants, are going to sing about.
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”.
“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.
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?
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…
The mandate that the new government received basically asks for the return to the pre-2009 era. This is achievable, with Greece remaining in the European Monetary Union, and with a debt write-off.
No one is prepared for the situation of, for example, 60,000 migrants coming to Serbia. And that’s exactly how many of them are in Serbia right now. The entire population of the city of Paracin.
Can the newspaper Politika, our president, conditions, rules, etc. prevent doctors and other trained professionals from looking for jobs in Germany, Austria, Sweden, Norway, etc? They can.
How to explain to the new generation that so many people were killed in their name. To use a term Djindjic coined when speaking about Kosovo, how to break this bone in our brain?
Since June 16th in the afternoon, our website has been under the most severe hacking attack we have ever experienced: in the last two days, our server blocked about 2,000 IP addresses.
When we worry too much about our arrogant rulers, we can count on their international debacles. That’s how they all finish, while pushing Serbia into greater poverty.
In an interview with Euronews Aleksandar Vucic claims that the statement he made on July 20, 1995, that “one hundred Muslims would be killed for every dead Serb,” was misinterpreted.

The first intimate feeling among citizens was: oh, not again! No, this is not 2001! And it is not going to be! Today in Macedonia there is no room for new ethnic conflict.
The sneakiness becomes unbearable when your story implies that someone is a murderer. And this is what the minister of police has been doing when talking about Sasa Jankovic.
The ministry of police didn’t think it necessary to check HRW’s findings that Serbian police is taking money from migrants, but they checked Informer’s story about ombudsman Sasa Jankovic.
Two of my friends were beaten in the streets of Belgrade „out of the blue“. The attackers kicked one of them in the head because they didn’t like his clothes.
