Kosovo is not Serbia’s Kurdistan, but Balkan’s IS/Daesh

In the article “Kurdistan – Turkey’s Kosovo” Prof. Sotirović compared different aspects of Turkish Kurdistan case to the Kosovo one, found some parallels and pointed out Turkey’s hypocrisy.

A blast caused by a suicide car bombing hit the centre of Ankara on Sunday evening (March 13th, 2016) resulting in over a hundred casualties.

The illusion of Greater Albania as a mechanism of Balkanization in Macedonia (I)

Real targets of Ukrainian missiles and phantom targets of the European sanctions

On Jan. 29 the Council of Europe extended the sanctions against a number of influential people in Russia and the Donbass.

Europe Between Kosovization and Jihadization

Today the Old (dying out) Continent is under multi-faced crises pressure some of them having older roots but the others are product of current political decisions and moves by the European decision makers (and those who are behind them across the Ocean).
