“The dilemma posed by the unilateral declaration of independence of Kosovo is that it’s a crisis creating a new world order, a new system of security, and a new system of economics. If we don’t understand the full threat presented by this precedent, then, World War III is at hand”, stated Irina Onishchenko, doctor of political science, at a roundtable dedicated to the possibility of the repetition of the Kosovo scenario in the Ukraine. In her opinion, this is an application by the US of the ancient principle divide et impera. “The Americans try to solve their domestic problems by meddling in foreign countries. Specifically, the US wishes to use Kosovo as a military base from which they can pressure the rest of Europe. Kosovo isn’t a problem of the Serbs and Albanians, it’s a problem of the US and Europe, for America doesn’t wish the Europeans to form a united bloc that would become another pole of influence in the world”, Ms Onishchenko said. She noted that there are some 200 ethnic groups throughout the world that may try to win their independence, through conflict, if necessary. “We’ve no idea of what’ll happen as a result of the precedent set by Kosovo. One of the possible consequences of the recognition of the UDI of Kosovo is World War III”.
