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!

Batut: U poslednjih 15 godina nije se povećao broj dece obolele od raka

S vremena na vreme u domaćim medijima se pojavljuju dramatične priče o tome da deca u Srbiji sve više obolevaju od raka, naročito nakon NATO bombardovanja. Izvor za te tvrdnje je uglavnom preliminarno istraživanje koje sprovodi skupštinska Komisija za ispitivanje posledica NATO bombardovanja, a prema kome je 2016. godine od raka kod nas obolelo 336 dece, što je navodno duplo više od evropskog proseka. Podatke su, kažu, dobili od Instituta Batut. Iako broj obolelih od raka generalno raste i kod nas i u svetu, prema informacijama koje je Raskrikavanje dobilo od ovog instituta, to se ne odnosi i na decu do 19 godina. U Srbiji se, naime, broj obolele dece nije značajno menjao u poslednjih 15 godina.

In fact, Turkey is not in Russia’s pocket, as one headline suggested, but Ankara has been alienated from the West. Here is why.

BEOGRAD, 18. jula (Tanjug) - Poruke koje je u Beogradu poslao američki general Ted Volters, glavnokomandujući NATO snaga u Evropi, pokazuju da je Srbija pouzdan partner i faktor stabilnosti u regionu, a značajne su i za naredni period i rešavanje kosovskog pitanja, kaže direktorka Centra za evroatlantske studije Jelena Milić.
