They.are intentional provocations that have caused major disruptions, and they have, in fact, been dealt with far more leniently than they… Continue ->

Published 2019-08-15 09:15:31 by Guest Author in Crime, Eurasia, Headline-News, Isis, Kosovo, Nato, Serbia

The issue is simple: Albanians in Kosovo and Metohija have no cultural and historical monuments of their own since the local historical monuments have been erected either by Serbia or Turkey (Ottoman Empire). They have neither capacity nor will to protect the… Continue ->
