After 15 years of ‘independence’, it is clear that Kosovo was a stepping stone for NATO’s imperial goals

Similar to Ukraine, Serbia’s breakaway province is an exercise in the ‘rules-based order’, where rules are made up for the convenience of Western powers By Aleksandar Pavic, political analyst FILE PHOTO.

Photograph Source: Boris Dimitrov – CC BY-SA 3.0 Little more than half a year has passed since Belgrade hosted the Non-Aligned Summit on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the movement’s founding, and Serbia is increasingly under fire for upholding the organization’s principles.

The expectation is that sanctions would then have enough time to bring about the collapse of R...
