1. How about russia and serbia follow the british example of hong kong : give kosovo back to albania and crimea back to ukraine and you will never be hated by anyone. Of course the agreement comes with both russia and serbia also having to stop killing people ?

    of course the greek historians didn't consider the illyrians as greeks. they were invaders from the north. they invaded greek lands.

    At least Serbian politicians are smart enough to see that you cannot eihter support Russian land grabbing from Ukraine and complain about Albanian land grabbing in Kosovo.
    Crimea's secession after the rigged 'vote' under occupation of little green men without state insignia was against the Ukrainian constitution - just as Kosovo's 'independence' is against Serbian constitution.

  7. Kosovo is Albania. They are likely going to merge soon. They have already merged culturally and economically. A political merger will be a natural progression soon, maybe even a necessity given the increased pooling of interests.

  9. @Iron Knee

    By your logic you’re saying that Illyrians were Greek and that Albanians too are an extension of Hellenism. We are flattered but everything you’ve said is beyond laughable. Illyrians were not Greeks and the name was not Greek. It comes from the Albanian word Ilir “ he who is free “ and they weren’t a single unified people but a loose connected ethnolinguistic tribal region more related socially and culturally to celts and Thracians than Greeks. That is where the Greek myth of the three siblings was first born which states Celts, Thracians And Illyrians all had a common lineage. Lake Skadar or Shkodër, is not a Greek name either, it was borrowed from the local inhabitants who spoke a paleo Balkanic language that might have been related to modern Albanian or a completely different language all together. As for Greek itself, it was only spoken by the elite class and the intelligentsia as it was the lingua Franca of the Eastern Roman Empire. Most peasant or commoners in the area couldn’t understand Greek let alone speak it. The Greeks never moved much further than their present territory in the Balkans, they had a few short lived cities along the Adriatic and Black Sea but that’s it. However with that being said, I don’t believe Albanians are the only people left that are of Illyrian heritage, most smart people would agree that the influx of Celts and Slavs meant that the people of the western Balkans mixed with out prejudice and developed new ethnic identities.

  10. "The Crime issue is definitely closed, Crimea is Russia, and Kosovo is Serbia. It's not just a slogan, it's the legal reality that must be respected," Chepurin said.

    It is BS to make you and the serbs feel better. Russians invaded Ukrainian territory by force. Kosovo went through a UN process in which Russia was totally involved(russian Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko was part of the status talks). The only legal reality is ICJ decision about Kosovo.

    Crawling you say? Do you actually know what N Korea got in return?
    Nobody does at the moment so until the deal is out in public you can't say that Trump subdued Rocket Man.
    Neither Rocket Man's father nor grandfather had a meeting with a US president but this one did. You can take that either way. Western media is trying to portray this as a victory for US. Trump made this happen and maybe it is but North Korea agreed to have a meeting. North Korean president didn't travel to Washington for a meeting, he had Trump meet him in is backyard.
    So how much did North Korea benefit from this? Time will tell. One thing's for sure is that the world benefits and that's the most important thing.
    If the US president had to travel to meet a leader then I am sure it didn't all go his way.

  12. Crimea was always part of Russia, Kruchev decided to give it to Ukraine as part of the Soviet Union, nobody blinked. TITO decided to give nominal autonomy to Kosovo within Serbian borders, again, nobody blinked. Tito also created the artificial republic of FYROM, Greece or Bulgaria did not blink. Get the picture or do you need it drawn up in a kindergarten board for you to understand.


    Tito was one of many things but he was not a poster boy God
    Macedonia was a Republic before everyone in the Balkans the first
    it was a my peoples land divided and partitioned by everyone around it
    Macedonian was Republic within the FY
    like Slovenia it was illegitimate member of the party from the start

  13. @guest...

    it is a nice try that you're making,
    but the balkans is all greek.
    illyria is the name the greeks gave the region around skadar lake.
    it was the greeks that build the trading routes through the balkans.
    it was the greek language that all residents of the balkans spoke.

    so. now that we have that clear. since the greeks, everyone is an interloper on their land.
    so we can go back to what ever point in time convenient to your argument, only to go a bit further back to when it was all greek. all stop. again, all greek.

    everything in the balkans started greek.

    Not really since historically, Crimea was part of Russia. Historically, Kosovo was never part of Albania and has no historical references to Albanians before the 19th century. I'm fine with Crimea being part of Ukraine, but Kosovo was never part of Albania.

  19. The western Balkans is Albanian, the south is Greek and the east is Romanian and Yugoslavs are originally from the Ukraine loooooool. Who gives a f@(k. Kosovo isn’t coming back and any Serbs with half a brain know that. Russia has been demoted to a regional power at best and its influence in world affairs has been replaced by China. The only reason they annexed Crimea is because they know Ukraine will be the next NATO member and a potential EU candidate. It’s a way for Putin to buy Russia time as NATO expands further east.
