Russia and China are "sinking" Serbia, the dangerous relations with the two countries endanger EU membership, here are the conditions that Brussels has set for Belgrade, why Vucic is stuck "between two fires"

Russia and China are "sinking" Serbia, the dangerous relations with

"I know that the EU is our path, there is no other." This is what Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said to Bloomberg in January 2023 about the future of his country and European integration. However, as "Forbes Italia" writes, more than a year later, Vucic has not at all brought Belgrade closer to Brussels. He even did the opposite. Proof of this is the lukewarm reaction of all European leaders, with the exception of Viktor Orbán, to his re-election in December, characterized, according to the opposition and OSCE commissioners present in the country, by irregularities, fraud and violence against voters. from the majority party.

Relations with Russia and China

Historical proximity to Russia is another divisive issue with Brussels. As "Forbes Italia" recalls, the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, in her last trip to the Balkans said: "We want you to take the next steps to get closer to us in foreign policy as well ". The reference to the closeness to Putin is not accidental. Serbia is the only European country that has not joined the economic sanctions against Moscow. Close ties with China are also a concern. The trade agreement signed in October 2023 with Beijing violates the rules for EU membership. In recent years, China has financed a series of strategic infrastructures for the connection of Serbia with Piraeus and the Adriatic through the Exim (Export-Import) Bank of China. For Belgrade, Beijing is an indispensable ally in international forums for the protection of its territorial integrity and sovereignty over Kosovo, and has become a supplier of military equipment. Aleksandër Vucic, therefore, on the one hand does not want to give up the historical connection with Russia and China, on the other hand he wants to continue the process of European integration, because Serbia cannot do without Brussels.

Tensions with Kosovo

As "Forbes Italia" writes, the main obstacle for Belgrade's EU membership is the issue of Kosovo. Brussels and Washington put the normalization of relations with Pristina as a condition for integration. A fundamental point was the creation of the Association of Serbian Municipalities in Kosovo. The northern part of Kosovo, in fact, is mainly inhabited by Serbs. Prishtina does not want to give up that territory. At the end of May, the tension resulted in violent clashes which led to the wounding of 41 soldiers, including 14 Italians, of the NATO contingent in Kosovo, KFOR. In September, a group of Kosovar Serb paramilitaries attacked the police, leaving one Kosovar policeman and three Serb paramilitaries dead. Prishtina described the episode as an act of terrorism orchestrated by the government in Belgrade, while Vucic responded by condemning the unjustified killings of "Serb patriots" and the deployment of the army to the border.

War scenario

The tension remains very high. Vucic has declared, even recently, before von der Leyen, that he will never recognize Kosovo's independence, thus risking the freezing of the EU membership process. However, writes "Forbes Italia", the EU and the USA cannot face, after Ukraine, another war in the heart of Europe. Italy itself must at all costs prevent the explosion of tension in Kosovo. First of all, for the proximity to the country, but also for the flourishing trade relations with the Balkan countries, as Italy is the second trading partner of Serbia in the EU, after Germany. Last, but not least, also due to the presence of around 850 Italian soldiers in Kosovar territory. China is also worried about a destabilization of the area because its commercial interests could be jeopardized. Putin would be the only one to benefit in the event of an escalation between Serbia and Kosovo, which would divert Western attention and resources from the Ukrainian conflict. More than a century after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Habsburg in Sarajevo, which triggered the First World War, the Balkans return to the center of the European and world chessboard.
