I’d bet that the Americans had a hand in this. They’re “making America great again”… please, do spare me…

On Tuesday, the MID RF said:

We resolutely condemn this cowardly act. Attempts to settle political scores using such methods are fraught with exacerbation of atmosphere of terror and recurrence of the interethnic conflict in the region. We call on all international missions in Kosovo to use their mandates to take exhaustive measures to prevent possible incidents in the region. We hope that corresponding structures will conduct a thorough investigation of what happened to expose those responsible and duly punish them.

On Tuesday, Oliver Ivanović, 64, the leader of the Kosovo Serb party Freedom, Democracy, and Justice, was shot dead as he entered his party’s headquarters in Kosovska Mitrovica. A fellow party member said no one heard any sounds of shooting and a neighbour who was returning from shopping found the wounded politician. Police later found a burnt car without an identification number, which the killers allegedly used. Ivanović was taken to hospital with five gunshot wounds to his chest. Doctors tried to save his life but to no avail.

Earlier, Ivanović served as the State Secretary of the Ministry for Kosovo and Metohija in the Serb government. In January 2016, he was sentenced to nine years in jail for alleged war crimes against Albanians in 1999. In February 2017, the first-instance court’s verdict was overturned and a new trial began. Ivanović was under house arrest and in April 2017, he was allowed to defend himself in court at liberty.

Council of Europe Report Includes Data on Destruction of Heritage in Kosovo

______________________________

In Strasbourg, Marija Obradović, member of National Assembly delegation and of the Culture Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (CoE) (PACE), said that Serbia couldn’t allow the adoption of a CoE resolution that doesn’t include data on a decade that saw more than 150 Serbian Orthodox churches destroyed in Kosovo. She noted, according to a release from the Serbian National Assembly, “We insisted that the draft report include facts about the destruction of Serbian cultural heritage, especially of those buildings not damaged in the pogrom in Kosovo from March 2004. I informed the members of the committee that 34 Orthodox churches and other cultural and religious buildings were damaged in that event alone”. Obradović remarked that Serbia’s opinion was received well by the other members of the committee, and by the rapporteur, especially considering that more than a few of those buildings had UNESCO protection, and that many were constructed in the Middle Ages, concluding, “The adoption of a resolution on this is expected early next year, and we’ll monitor closely its creation until then”. On Friday, the Committee on Culture, Science, Education, and Media of the PACE discussed a preliminary report on cultural heritage in crisis and post-conflict situations, included in the fourth part of the plenary session.

Eight years ago, Islamist terrorists took over a school in Beslan… it ended in tragedy. The security forces killed the terrorists, but all too many of their hostages died, too. America has to hang its head in shame. Langley used “black ops“… so-called “covert operations“… for years. They did help to fund the Chechen militants and gave them shelter and aid, just as they helped the Kosovo Albanian terrorists… just as they supported the Taliban… just as they’re aiding the Syrian “opposition” today. In this case, both Republican neocons and Democratichumanitarian interventionists” wanted to weaken Russia and see it expelled from the Caucasus. No, they didn’t intend this murder… but it was helped by their Machiavellian policies and actions. Thank God… Russia beat back the terrorists.

As we saw in Kosovo… as we saw in Afghanistan… as we saw in Iraq… as we saw in Libya… as we’re seeing in Syria… the One Percent in the USA uses clandestine action of the most vile and sordid sort to weaken those it deems its enemies. Our country has fallen into the ditch. It now supports murder and rapine all over the world… and vilifies Russia and China, who stand against it. Remember Beslan… that’s the way the USA operates now. It supports terrorism, and, then, labels its enemies “terrorists”. It’s no longer the America that stood tall and proud in the Anti-Hitler Coalition… sadly enough. It’s morphed into a greedy, nasty, violent, petulant, money-worshipping Moloch… “The Almighty Dollar is God, and Ayn Rand is its Prophet”… George Orwell was right (I say that in sadness). “Freedom is slavery… war is peace”… and those in Moloch’s service dare to call themselves “Christians”. As believers, it’s our duty to say, “NO”… as human beings, it’s our duty to say, “NO”… “the truth will set you free”… only if you let it. Shall you?

These kids harmed no one… but politicians in Washington wanted to “send a message to Moscow“… none dare call it evil. We live in a dark, godless, and amoral age driven by greed, pseudo-religion, consumerism, and hypocrisy, white is black, evil is good, and up is down… but I refuse to give up… neither should you…

MP Prepared to Send Monks as Envoys to Kosovo

Destroyed Orthodox church in Kosovo… the USA turns its back and ignores it all. Thank you, Neocon Republicans! When you vote, remember that the GOP recognised the illegitimate Kosovo robber-state… and that they’ll return to that policy in full vigour, if elected in November. Reflect on the fact that Paffhausen and Potapov support the enemies of the Kosovo Serbs, and aren’t ashamed of it in the least. Shameful… utterly shameful… 

______________________________

Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev, the head of the MP Department of External Church Relations, said that the MP’s ready to send monks as envoys to help Christians in Kosovo. Vladyki Hilarion is part of a large MP delegation headed by Patriarch Kirill Gundayev of Moscow and all the Russias, which has been in Bulgaria since Friday. In an interview for the Bulgarian National Radio on Sunday, Metropolitan Hilarion said, “We support this idea, and as we’ve said before, we’re ready to send monks to Kosovo. If we do that, we’re obliged to act in the interests of the Serbian Orthodox Church. The situation in Kosovo’s quite complicated, as some of the monasteries are in majority-ethnic-Albanian territory, which is hostile not only to Serbia and to Serbs, but also to their religion”. Vladyki Hilarion emphasised that monasteries in Kosovo have problems relating to security, preserving monastic life, and preserving Serbian cultural heritage. Ergo, the MP will cooperate with the SPC to help them through such a complicated situation.
