False bottom of Serbia

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.

Got a room?

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.

Putting out fire with gasoline

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.

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…

Greece’s adjustment problem

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.

A late response

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.

The iron curtain rule

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.

The bone in our brain

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?

Special report

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.

Tripping over the same stone

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.

Contexts don’t burn

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 new censorship

From the radio show: Snjezana Milivojevic and Miroslava Milenović speaking about the 2015 Report of the Anti-Corruption Council.

Saturday night, monday morning

There is an epidemic of femicide in Serbia: 20 women were murdered by their partners or other male family members since the beginning of this year. It’s clear that something must be done to stop this.

Across the line

It’s a systemic discontinuity. After the case of ombudsman Sasa Jankovic nothing will be the same. We climbed aboard the ship of civilized humanity, and now we have fallen back into barbarism.

Lies scream through Serbia

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.

Double standards

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.

Minister Gasic’s deceits

The findings of the two army commissions on the responsibility for the tragic helicopter crash are now available to the public. Their most controversial conclusion is that the crew is responsible for the crash.

Notice

The editors of Pescanik filed criminal charges against unidentified persons for unauthorized website breach, falsifying content and false representation to the Ministry of Internal Affairs Department for High-tech Crime.

Prevention is fully operational

In fortunate countries it’s not normal to constantly speak of an assassination of the highest authority; in Serbia it’s everyday fun. Apis himself has risen from the grave to chase Vucic and entertain us!

Three new poems

The gift from Charles Simic and Vojislav Pejovic, who translated these poems into Montenegrin. From the poem January: … An empire, I read somewhere, / Maintains itself through / The cruelty of its prisons.

The misery of journalism

Serbian journalism won’t soon recover from the defeat inflicted on it by our prime minister on Tuesday night (Question mark, RTS 1). He has put journalists where he thinks they deserve to be – the ninth circle of Hell.

Shame on you, prime minister

Instead of protecting your ministers at any cost, you would be much better off allowing the investigation to find out: who decided that the helicopter should bring the baby to Belgrade only?

On March 12, I walk alone

The whole circus is completed by walks for Zoran, organized by tiny leaders – by-products of divisions within the Democratic Party. This makes me sick. I see these walks as an abuse of citizens’ feelings.

Integration fatigue

Yugoslav nations could no longer blame Yugoslavia or communism for their failure. A scapegoat was urgently needed. They are disappointed in Europe because they are disappointed in themselves.
