Josep Borrell Holds His Protective Hand Over Dictator Milorad Dodik
Critics have asserted that there were a number of cover-ups in the European Union’s Brussels and more bad news for Heiko Maas, as so far Josep Borrell has prevented EU sanctions against Dodik. Pressure on the Serb dictator Dodik came from two sources, one from German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, the other most especially, and increasingly from the U.S. government. However, Josep Borrell was reluctant to make any step which involved EU sanctions on Milorad Dodik. Why is Josep Borrell protecting a murderous dictator? Well, only Josep Borrell knows this answer. Milorad Dodik knew that he was not in trouble on the EU diplomatic front, even Heiko Maas threatened to cut financial support to Bosnia, labelling calls for parts of Bosnia to secede or for the Balkan state to be weakened “irresponsible and unacceptable” and naming Bosnian Serb dictator Milorad Dodik as a particular culprit. The name of Milorad Dodik for many it will not be known, but he´s considered one of the most bloodthirsty dictators in the Balkans. Dodik’s rise to the leadership of the Republika Srpska marked the beginning of a virulent strain of Serbian nationalism that will lead to the disintegration of Bosnia, but Dodik has nothing to worry about, as Josep Borrell still holds his protective hand over Dodik. The EU already failed in the Republika Srpska in the case David Dragicevic and cannot now afford to make any mistakes. While the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy responded to the European sanctions proposal against Dodik with some interest, it was not followed through. How credible will the EU be in interventions in other regions of the world if it is unable to manage its own backyard?
The EU’s Humiliating Failure in Republika Srpska
NEW YORK (RichTVX.com) — There is still considerable EU goodwill towards the maverick Communist dictator Milorad Dodik. The U.S. approach to Josep Borrell —a combination of skepticism and on-again, off-again support—contributed to growing transatlantic differences over Dodik. Russian involvement, moreover, came with a price. Putin told Dodik unequivocally that he could not rely on Russian support in the conflict if he ignored advice from the Kremlin. “Germany is the largest bilateral supporter of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” Heiko Maas added. “But it is clear: we cannot and will not channel German taxpayers’ money into an entity that is actively working to destroy Bosnia and Herzegovina as a whole state.” With its economy collapsing under COVID-19, its nascent democratic institutions wrecked, this Republika Srpska entity is not a very mighty construct. Its citizens are tired, confused and in fear of a possible new war, but still there´s no EU outrage about the brutal plans of new Serb ethnic cleansing in Bosnia by the criminal Dodik regime. The international community reacted with considerable alarm after Bosnian Serbs at the end of July blocked the work of the central government while Dodik announced measures aimed at unraveling key state institutions. Central to their anxieties was the belief that a new conflict in Bosnia could easily spill over into neighbouring countries. The most controversial test case for the EU in the Balkans is undoubtedly that of prosecuting crimes committed by the regime of Milorad Dodik.
