Russia finds young men who love guns — and grooms them

By now we are all familiar with the Russian disinformation campaigns, designed to undermine democracy and sow distrust, which are present in many Western countries. The many uses of Russian corruption — the companies deployed for the political ends of the state, the banks and oligarchs who sponsor foreign politicians — are well known, too. But they aren't the whole story. For an underfunded ex- ­superpower trying to regain influence on the cheap, money and trolls only go so far.

Zbog uticaja Rusije u Regionu potrebno veće prisustvo NATO

Ruski uticaj na bezbednost i demokratski razvoj regiona Zapadnog Balkana je veći izazov od uticaja islamističkih organizacija, izjavila je u intervjuu za RTK direktorka Centra za evroatlantske studije (CEAS) Jelena Milić. Ona ističe da je zbog mešanja Rusije u pitanja bezbednosti, energetike, politike i medije u državama Zapadnog Balkana, a najčešće preko Srbije, neophodno da i EU i SAD preuzmu veću ulogu u regionu. Prema njoj, ne treba tražiti od Srbije da prizna Kosovo pre nego što to učine sve članice NATOa i EU, ali se normalizacija treba nastaviti.

Tahiri: Spremni smo da delimo informacije sa Srbijom

Kosovsko tužilaštvo i policija po hitnom postupku su počeli da se bave ovim slučajem koji je uznemirio kosovske građane na severu, ali, koji je, takođe, izazvao reakcije u celom regionu Zapadnog Balkana i šire. Ja sam otvoren i zalažem se za saradnju sa svim državama, uključujući Srbiju.

The wider implications of Zapad 2017

Russia's Zapad 2017 exercise, in which Russia defended Belarus against externally supported extremist groups, conveyed Russia's determination to re-establish its sphere of influence in the face of NATO’s perceived expansionism. NATO must not allow the fact that Zapad was less aggressive than some had feared to blunt its message of greater vigilance and preparedness, nor shake its firm commitment to eastern European allies.

Direktorka CEAS Jelena Milić o poznanstvu sa pokojnim Oliverom Ivanovićem

Pokojnog Olivera Ivanovića sam upoznala još negde 2001. ili 2002. godine kada sam bila local staff u tek uspostavljenoj UNMIK kancelariji u Beogradu. Moja tadašnja šefica je bila mnogo opuštenija od mene, meni je tada prva asocijacija bila - čuvar mosta. Ljubazan, opušten, spreman na razgovor i saradnju, to mi je bio prvi utisak posle susreta.

According to the press reports, he was hit with four or five bullets, found by a neighbor still alive, but died in a hospital within an hour. A burned car was found in a street near by, and the Kosovo Police Service said it was probably the car used in the assassination. So far, nobody had heard or seen anything.
