Eyes wide shut

The goal of this study is to present to the Serbian public the various levels of international relations in which the current Moscow is undoubtedly an indispensable player in the solving of the most pressing of global and regional problems and challenges, and on this basis to encourage a debate on whether Russia is a necessary or advantageous partner. Our intention was to analyze the objectives, methods and effects of the Russian soft power in the Western Balkans and Serbia, and on the basis of the findings we collect during the research to give an assessment of whether they are in accordance with what CEAS considers to be the public interest of the State of Serbia - stabilization, democratization, economic prosperity and Euro-Atlantic integrations.

INTERVJU, JELENA MILIĆ: Da sam Vučić, nikad ne bih priznala Kosovo, dok ga ne priznaju sve zemlje EU

Kad sedneš preko puta Jelene Milić, imaš osećaj da sediš preko puta holograma. Deluje nekako digitalno. Kao avatar. Često koristi engleske reči i izraze, pa sve to skupa nekako pojačava image koji vidiš. Šta očekuješ u tom trenutku? U najmanju ruku da ćeš proći kao Vedrana Rudan ili Marko Vidojković kod Milomira Marića. Od sudara s njom, istine radi, Vedrane Rudan nema baš mnogo na srpskim TV ekranima. Naš prekodrinski gen nam sugeriše da je takva sudbina ovog intervjua. Nakon dva sata i malo više razgovora, shvatiš da Jelenu Milić u stvari nikada niko nije saslušao do kraja. S njom je vrlo lako ne složiti se u većini stavova, ali joj se ne može osporiti konzistentnost u razmišljanju.

The US and NATO’s ability to deter Russia is at risk, commander says

There is a pressing need for NATO allies to share intelligence, but many products available to enable that aren’t suitable, Hodges told an audience at a panel Tuesday at the Association of the U.S. Army Annual Meeting & Exposition.

Russia’s Electronic Warfare Capabilities to 2025: Challenging NATO in the Electromagnetic Spectrum

“ICDS’s study could not be more timely. This is a professional work that catalogues the seriousness of the threat without being unduly alarmist. It is fact based, from the detailed descriptions of Russian equipment and investment; through Moscow’s development of organisation and command structure; to accounts of training, tactics and operations. There is also a great discussion of Russian doctrine and how Russian electronic warfare fits into broader questions of cyber and psychological operations and how that convergence will further challenge NATO’s concepts and practices. I highly recommend this important work as the departure point for the Alliance rethinking and reshaping its response to a growing danger. ”
