Serbia: Signs of War
The Kosovo conflict has flared up again. The recent turmoil in the contested region began after plans were announced to ban Serbian license plates and introduce permits for Serbs entering the Kosovo region. Recently, both Kosovo and Serbia came to an agreement to postpone this law on the mutual non-recognition of Serbian and Kosovo ID cards and license plates until September 1. It did help to smooth over the acute phase of the conflict, but it did not solve the core problems between Serbia and the contested region.
“Kosovo is a southern Serbian province currently occupied by NATO forces that are turning it into an artificial, criminalized state,” says Fedja Dimovic, lead singer of Beogradski Sindikat.
A growing number of people in Belgrade believe that the Serbian leadership has been slow to act, that it is time to resolve the Kosovo issue in the same way that Russia returned Crimea – that the region must be brought back home.
