Russian And Serbian Aggression Against Kosovo In The Security Council Update (original can be found Here ):
By: Kevin Miller
The Security Council held a session at the United Nations in New York on the 27th, of February on the situation in Kosovo. The head of the United Nations Mission In Kosovo, or UNMIK, Zahir Tanin gave a presentation of the Missions report on the cohesion, unity, and levels of ethnic violence in the former Yugoslavian States. This is the first report presented to the Security Council since new UN Secretary General António Guterres took office in January. As for the intimidation by the Serbians in the UN Security Council meeting I sense that the stepped up presence of the President of Serbia Tomislav Nikolic(1) is perhaps a way of marginalizing Vlora Çitaku(in Blue) and her protestations against Serbian aggression in Kosovo through the use of organized mobs of Serbian nationals to cause instability in the almost 9 year old Kosovar State. This could also be simply the affect of the Serbian government, feeling they need to defend themselves from charges of attempting to commandeer the Kosovar State through the use of mob tactics. To perhaps underline the seriousness with which the Serbian President takes these matters he brought along the Serbian Ambassador to the United States Djerdj Matkovic(5), and the Permanent Representative to the UN for Serbia, Milan Milanovic(2). Perhaps this was simply done to prevent the United States from seeing any of the President’s true advisers on the subject. Also in attendance, and not yet identified are two older men(3 and 4); one(3) in his mid-50’s to 60’s, and the other(4) younger possibly mid 30’s to mid 40’s. The seating arrangement is as follows: Tomislav Nikolic(1) is alone at the Dais with the rest of the Security Council Representatives for their respective government, or department at the UN. Immediately behind him and to his right is Milan Milanovic(2) with long hair, Permanent Representative to the UN for Serbia. To Milan’s left is unidentified man(3) in his 50’s and 60’s. Immediately behind Milan is the unidentified man(4) in his mid 30’s or 40’s. And immediately to the left of the man in his 30’s or 40’s is Djerdj Matkovic(5), Serbian Ambassador to the US. It should be noted that the unidentified man(3) in his mid 50’s to 60’s I have never seen at the UN Security Council meetings on Kosovo at least since last September 16, 2016. While the unidentified man(4) in his 30’s or 40’s I have seen regularly at the UN Security Council meetings on the situation in Kosovo. It should also be noted that I have not seen Milan Milanovic(2) at the Security Council meetings on the Situation in Kosovo at least since last September 16, 2016. Updates will follow future Security Council meetings on Kosovo.
