China and Russia Support Serbia In Kosovo


EDITOR’S NOTE (Nick Stamatakis):  A new day has arrived quickly in international politics in Europe and the Middle East – we can hardly keep up with the news and the speedy developments.  Russia (and, to a lesser degree, China) are moving fast to take charge of international affairs as the US State Department is mired in its delusionary “woke” politics. In just a matter of a few months, Russia’s masterful diplomacy – assisted by China – managed to: a) achieve peace between Iran and Saudi Arabia, b) Re-enter Syria into the Arab League, c) Achieve a peace plan between Armenia and Azerbaijan,  d) are about to make a deal between Syria and Turkey, e) re-attract Georgia into their sphere of influence… I could go on… All the above and much more happened simultaneously as they were achieving their goals in Ukraine… And now they throw the ball in NATO’s field and challenge the unreasonable actions of the Albanians in Kosovo… The actions of these Albanians were so extreme that even the State Department felt the need to distance itself…



China fuels anti-NATO sentiment alongside Russia in support of ethnic Serbs fighting in Kosovo

NATO readies more peacekeeping troops as clashes continued in Kosovo

China on Tuesday threw its weight alongside Russia behind ethnic Serbs clashing in Kosovo after fighting broke out in protest to regional elections and dozens of NATO peace keeping forces were injured.

Beijing, in sidestep with its top ally Moscow, has never acknowledged Kosovo’s 2008 independence from Serbia and in a Tuesday press briefing said it supports Serbian efforts to “safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

Ethnic Serbs only account for roughly 5% of Kosovo’s population, though roughly half of all ethnic Serbs live in northern Kosovo, where clashes between the minority population and NATO and Kosovo police forces erupted following elections last month.

Ethnic Albanians, which make up 90% of Kosovo’s population, were able to secure mayoral election wins in the north after Kosovo Serbs boycotted local elections.

Ethnic Serbs then tried to take over government offices in one of the municipalities in northern Kosovo after ethnic Albanian mayors assumed their roles last week – prompting NATO and Kosovo police forces to step in.

At least 30 international peacekeeping forces have been injured, including 11 Italian and 19 Hungarian soldiers, according to a NATO statement Tuesday. Additional forces have been called up in a “prudent measure” to maintain regional security in accordance with the U.N. Security Council mandates.

However, tension had been brewing in northern Kosovo for months in the lead up to the elections and ethnic Serbs have been calling for the establishment of an association for majority-Serb municipalities and greater autonomy – a move that government officials in Kosovo’s capital Pristina have flatly rejected as it would essentially recreate a Serbian state within Kosovo.

Serbia, which sits directly north of Kosovo, raised the combat readiness of its troops positioned at the border and said it would not tolerate violence against ethnic Serbs.

Both the U.S. and EU have called on both sides to calm the tensions and prevent further escalation.

However, China appeared to add fuel to the flames Tuesday, when it said it opposed unilateral steps taken by the “temporary institutions” in Pristina and called for the establishment of “an association/community of Serb majority municipalities.”

“We urge NATO to respect relevant country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and truly contribute to peace in the region,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning told reporters.

Brutal fighting raged in Kosovo throughout the 1990s following the breakup of Yugoslavia in 1992 – killing tens of thousands and displacing millions – and NATO nations remain concerned that recent turmoil in the region could spark another major European conflict as Russia’s war in Ukraine continues.

Russia and China have long claimed that NATO over-stepped during the conflict, particularly after Beijing’s embassy in the Serbian capital of Belgrade was hit during an air campaign in 1999 as NATO forces looked to end Serbia’s brutal assault on ethnic Albanians in Kosovo.

The U.S. has apologized for the incident that killed three Chinese journalists and faulted shaky intelligence, though Beijing has since used the incident to fire up anti-NATO sentiment, reported ABC News.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also used the recent clashes as an opportunity to lash out at NATO efforts to stem the aggression.

“A major explosive situation is brewing in the heart of Europe, exactly in that place where NATO carried out aggression against Yugoslavia in 1999,” he said according to Russian state-owned media outlet Tass. “The situation is alarming, but the West has embarked on a course of total subjugation of all those who in any way express their own opinion.”

Rebekah Koffler, a Russia expert and former Defense Intelligence Agency intel officer specializing in Russian doctrine, warned that Lavrov’s comments were likely more than opportune diplomatic rhetoric, but part of a larger Kremlin scheme.

“Lavrov’s comments…are consistent with Russia’s long-term position on the break-up of Yugoslavia, which Moscow attributes to the U.S. and NATO’s ‘aggression’,” she told Fox News Digital. “Given that it has been Putin’s goal for more than a decade to reverse Kosovo’s split from Serbia, it is quite probable that Russian and Serbian intelligence is behind the current violent clashes between the local Serbs and NATO-lead peacekeepers.”

“The ‘big explosion in the center of Europe’ that Lavrov is talking about is probably part of Putin’s lateral escalation strategy, a typical Moscow statecraft, to divert the U.S. and NATO’s attention away from Russia’s war on Ukraine and tie up Western intelligence resources on a new security issue threatening Europe,” she added.


  1. Every last βρομόσκυλο Albanian needs to be driven out of Kosovo, back into Moslem Albania!

  2. The Church of The Red Beast – Weaponized Orthodox Christianity

    Remember The Milosevic Regime?

    Apparently Milosevic was a communist ☭ (left wing) accused of holding nationalist views. (right wing).

    Why are ‘THEY’ using the Orthodox Church as a weapon?

    Remember “THEY’RE AFTER CHRIST!”

    … and by deceiving us to commit sin, we hurt Jesus, which is what ‘THEY’ want!

  3. This goes back….”waaaay” back…

    CHAPTER 1) – Initial Vatican expansionism
    1204 AD…Vatican crusaders raid the lower Balkan peninsula and sack Constantinople, slicing up a lot of what is today Greece, making them their colonies (remember that the Dodecanese wasn’t liberated from Vatican /Italian oppression until 1946, and there are some people still alive today who can tell you that the “civilized” Mussolini Italians forbade Greek being spoken publicly and in schools as part of their indoctrination program)…the objective in those days, “submission to the Pope”…they started a Uniate movement around that time, and successfully continued it…despite the south of Italy and entire villages of Sicily being settled by refugees fleeing the Ottomans, why are these populations no longer “Orthodox” today? That particular technique of “dressing up clergy as Orthodox to lure them into submission to the Vatican”, (even by reciting the Creed WITHOUT the Filioque to lure them) continued in the Cyclades as well, and that Vatican conquest was miraculously halted only when the icon of Tinos appeared, and convinced the remaining population to retain Orthodoxy. Today, the island of Syros still has about a 50% population of Roman Catholics, as a historical reminder of what one of the sinister aims of the 1204 Crusade really was…

    CHAPTER 2 – the Uniates of the Ukraine
    1600’s – in what is today “Ukraine”…Polish and German “settlers” overflow into what is today the Ukraine. They are obviously not Orthodox. The Vatican, after the successful techniques employed in the south of Italy and elsewhere, dresses up clergy in Orthodox attire, leverages the Roman Catholic migrant population to establish a foothold, and pushes the “Eastern Rite” expansion into those lands, successfully luring a significant part of that population into subjugation to Papal Primacy. Today, we see 3 “Churches” in the Ukraine as a result…Ounoufri was the legitimate Orthodox Metropolitan, aligned with Moscow. As part of the long-term plan, in the early 1990s, the defrocked KGB metropolitan Philaret (who spawned Epifanios) self-proclaimed himself “Patriarch” of the Ukraine, and established a splinter Church, that for geo-political reasons Constantinople gave a “tomos” to recently. The 3d “Church” in the Ukraine was always that “Greek Catholic” (Eastern Rite Uniate) movement that started in the 1600s, and clearly aligned with the Vatican. There is technically a 4th group aligned with the Vatican, but let’s just group the Vatican ones together for simplicity. There are very blurry lines between the clergy and laity of the Epifanios “Church”, and the “Greek Catholics”…images in the media are plentiful showing continued concelebrations between clergy from both those camps (In effect, establishing a “back-door union” between Constantinople and the Vatican)

    CHAPTER 3 – 20th century Wars – long standing “alliances” form…
    Albanians partnered with the Italians and Germans in WW2

    Bulgarians (theoretically Orthodox) side with Germans twice (WW1 / WW2) and commit unspeakable atrocities against Greeks in exchange for promises of “Aegean Sea beachfront property”

    Croatians sided with the Germans in WW2 and join them to kill Serbs (partly because they [like a lot of Germans] are Roman Catholic, and this favored long-term Vatican expansionist views. The role of [some] Vatican clergy in formulating and assisting WW2 desired outcomes in the Balkans is a subject of controversial academic study)

    Uniate Ukrainians (whose ancestral DNA is largely Polish & German dating back to the 1600’s when those ethnic groups overflowed into those lands) sided with the Germans in WW2, and their mindset ended up in a “deep freeze” during the Cold War, such that they never acknowledged that Nazis were actually “bad”…the urge to “hate Moscow” turned “generational”, and this is what was cultivated and leveraged to end up with today’s situation (combined of course with the twisted “identity” issue of “we are not Russians”, but instead of saying “we are Poles / Germans”, they say “we are Ukrainians”, because nobody taught them thoroughly about their actual ancestral lineage and what really happened in the 1600s / 1700s. In Germany at least, people were educated about the truth after WW2…but not in the Ukraine, and other places…just as a simple example of this, go to Turkey today and ask the inhabitants to tell you what happened to the Armenians and the Greeks…see what they have been “taught”…when people don’t agree on historical facts, it’s very easy to end up at war again in the future…

    And today, in Kosovo, you see that Germany & Italy (NATO peace-keepers) continue to protect their WW2 “friends”…

    St. Kosmas Aitolos in the mid to late 1700s added 2 interesting footnotes to his prophesies…
    1) Απο τους διαβασμενους θα ερθει το κακο… (Evil will come from the “educated ones”…[academics? “pseudo-theologians” of our era possibly?…up to interpretation])
    2) Τον Παπα να καταρασθε…αυτος θα ειναι η αιτια για ολα… (It is the Pope who you should anathematize/curse…he will be the root cause of everything….[the Uniate movement, perhaps?])
