A Move Away from Russia?

The statements Serbian officials made on May 28 regarding gas projects may be interpreted as Serbia’s slight turn toward reducing energy dependence on Russia.

Moscow Testing Belgrade’s Neutrality

Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov during a visit to Belgrade on May 15 had an opportunity to see that Serbia, an EU candidate country, is determined to maintain close ties with Russia and supports the idea of building the Turkish Stream gas pipeline.

Serbia will take part in the Parade of Victors in Moscow, on May 9, marking the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II which, as Serbian officials underscore, will not affect its attitude toward European integration or toward its obligations at the helm of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

Albanian PM’s Statement Wakes Old Ghosts in Balkans

The recent statement by Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama that the isolation of Kosovo in European integration could result in the classical unification of Albania and Kosovo, represents a message of sorts to Brussels, but has at the same time woken up the old ghosts of divisions and conflicts in the Balkans, particularly upsetting Belgrade. Rama’s statement can be interpreted as a message to Brussels on the necessity of intensifying ...
