What a Difference a Year Makes - Comparative reading and analysis of the April 2018 and August 2019 draft versions of the National Security and Defense Strategies

In the new Report, What a Difference a Year Makes, the Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies from Belgrade (CEAS) presents a comparative analysis of the draft versions of the new National Security Strategy (NSS) and National Defense Strategy (NDS), which the government of the Republic of Serbia approved on 8th August 2019 and passed on to the National Assembly for consideration, in versions that had undergone public discussion back in the spring of 2018. Bearing in mind all the significant changes of circumstances on global, regional and local level that have happened since spring 2018 on one hand, and some significant nuances in the  new versions of Serbian strategic documents endorsed in late summer 2019 on the other, CEAS calls this report – What a Difference a Day Makes - a tribute to its songwriters in Spanish and English, and especially to Dinah Washington and her legendary album What a diff”rence a day makes!

Response to the statement by Jelena Milic, President of the Center for Euro-Atlantic Integration and NATO lobbyist attacking the Army of Serbia Union and its President Novica Antic

THERE IS A SECRET CONNECTION…

It has been a while since Jelena Milic, NATO official in Serbia, became the measure and the indicator of phenomena and the ways the Serbs and Serbia should not [sic] be heading! These ways are well-treaded tracks of statelessness, slave owners’ conquer of Serbian workers, disbanding of the Serbian Army, taking away and sharing an inalienable part of Serbian territory, justifying the criminal bombing of Serbs in 1999… It has been a while since Ms. Milic is swinging the “Euro-Atlantic” sword with which she cuts the Serbs for being genocidal by using invented massacres, not shying away in her hysteria and her anti-Serbian necrophilia even from offending the late actor Nebojsa Glogovac only because “he had shown sympathy for Ratko Mladic”.

CEAS warns of dangerous, false and tendentious actions by Novica Antic and the Army of Serbia Trade Union

The Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies (CEAS) is expressing grave concern because of systematic, tendentiously false statements by the president of the Army of Serbia Trade Union Novica Antic that are violating the Constitution and the laws of the Republic of Serbia and the principle of democratic control over the armed forces, and of representative parliamentarianism itself, which has one of the key roles in the democratic oversight of the security system, as well as the president who is and should be a politician, primarily because of possible security implications of the actions by the Army of Serbia Trade Union that he is heading, to which Serbian public  is not reacting despite Antic’s open coup mongering that he justifies by his arbitrary assessment of alleged “betrayal” in relation to Kosovo.
