1. This institute is a joke and so are Serbian politicians who are willing to negotiate the independence of so called Kosovo. The only way Kosovo will become a part of the EU is as an integral part of the republic of Serbia. Serbs should turn to a different direction and build a stronger relationship with BRICS... they are the future not the immoral, godless, genderless, perverted, borderless, west and EU

  2. If something is factually correct you do not need to repeat it over and over to remind people.
    For example 2+2 will always be 4, we dont have to remind people that it is... so why do they keep telling us that Kosovo is an independent nation?

  4. Aha, so it is revealed at the end, this is about Russia. My God those Americans are ignorant. After everything Serbia went through, you think we are just going to negotiate recognition? LOL! This has gone on for decades and they think we will come to a solution after two years? And what if we don't? They still expect recognition? LOL!

    Seems like the clock is ticking and Russian influence is on the increase. Just ask Slovenia, Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria who they see as their protector? Funny how those NATO members see it as Russia and not the US.

    We can all see the mess the US created in the Balkans and further on, like Georgia, Ukraine, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. Serbs are against joining the Euro/Atlantic alliance. It is falling apart, a sinking ship, the Titanic. But hey, they say it is unsinkable. LOL!

  13. What crap!! Just a few days ago Dacic stated that he hopes Serbia will join the EU before the latter dismembers. Having said that, why then would Serbia recognize Kosovo? Dacic's statement is a reaffirmation that the government is aware the EU is a sinking ship. The Serbian government is just playing along to appease the the US/EU knowing fully well they will either never become members or the EU will disintegrate before that event occurs. The Serbs should maintain the course they're on until the time is right to take over what is rightfully theirs. The US has its hands full with North Korea, Russia, China, and other planets they are trying to take over. No recognition and patience is the key.

  15. This so-called expert is talking out of his posterior. A common trait amongst the American intelligentsia and State Department academic types. Russia may not be a democratic shining light on the world stage, but it certainly didn't mercilessly bomb Serbia for 78 days. It didn't impose the most draconian sanctions regime ever seen, or demonise Serbia in the media relenlessly. This is all conveniently forgotten by some people. The US's moral compass is spent in many parts of the world where it was once respected. American intrigues in the Balkans has created chaos and failed dependent regimes. How convenient that they now have a vast sprawling military complex in Kosovo that makes Nis look like a signals post.

  17. 63% of Serbs in Serbia said Kosovo is independent so a referendum removing Kosovo from Serbia's constitution should easily pass. I just assume a vote removing Kosovo would have be to held because would people -Albanians and eu and America- accept a Serbia recognition if Kosovo is still in Serbia's constitution as a part of Serbia. It seems impossible that kosovo can remain in Serbia's constitution.

Recognize Kosovo, and cooperate with the other ex Yugo countries in opening up mass graves and locating and exhuming all of the victims of genocide, mostly at yr country's hands. Prove to us that Milosevic and his sick ideology is dead, not just transferred to other politicians. Arrest and prosecute (or extradite) yr many remaining war criminals, starting w Guri, who is accused in the murder of the Bytyqui brothers, and many more. Join the damn civilized world, or forever remain an outcast under Putin's 'protection.'

  29. Blah, Blah, Blah. Serbia doesn't have to do anything until key issues are resolved. First, since it's clear that that the world believes people should determine their own fates, the Serbs living in Kosovo must determine their own fates. So, if they want to exit Kosovo (with their land of course), they should. Second, their property stolen must be returned or compensated for. Finally, just like their has been a strong push to punish war criminals of Serbian heritage, all Albanian war criminals must be punished too. In addition, all post-war crimes must be investigated impartially and the perpetrators punished. Once these issues are solved, I think most Serbs would be willing to recognize Kosovo. By the way, enough with the Clintons. Hillary couldn't even beat Trump, the most unpopular candidate in history.

They should not be blamed for the fact that they were born outside of Serbia through no fault of theirs, or that they moved overseas before the West became the enemy of Serbian people. Serbs ridiculing other Serbs for their place of abode and residence or for being bigger and more patriotic Serbs than they are, are the biggest danger to the survival of our people, and the source of the worst hypocrisy among us.
