UROVEKKENDE SIGNALER FRA BALKAN

Fra: https://www.politico.eu

Gracanica klostret i Kosovo. Fremste helligdom blant serberne.

There are alarming echoes of the 1990s sweeping across the Western Balkans today. And as talks on the European Union’s enlargement into the region stall, there is a disquieting common factor in the crises facing Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Montenegro: The Serbian government is actively backing efforts to destabilize them, supporting internal proxies, and threatening their sovereignty and territorial integrity. 

Coupled with Russian meddling, EU division and NATO weakness, this is proving to be a lethal mix. Progress that was made in the region in the 2000s — toward peaceful, prosperous, multiethnic states — is being undone, and the space is wide open for troublemakers. The time has come for NATO and the EU to work together and take action to arrest decline and protect the progress that was made.
