‘Serb’ia & protect
Is Serbia breaking ties with Russia?
12/06/2008

More than 50 years since its birth after the Treaty of Rome, the European Union today proudly brags about being one of the strongest political communities with 27 member countries (and many more nations wanting to join the league). With the very recent pro-European victory in Serbia, do we see Serbia joining the leagues of the rest of the Balkan countries to become an EU-certified entity? If that were to happen, there’s one nation that wouldn’t really be amused – Russia (oopsssss...); what with Russia lending a hand to Serbia while dealing with the fragile Kosovo situation (although the objective of being such a Good Samaritan was purely economic considering trade between the two touching $2.7 billion and of course with the more recent Energy Co-operation Agreement between them).

If Serbia was to join the EU ranks (on invitation of the French President), it would mean a minus from the Russian sphere of influence! Despite a lot of nationalists opposing it, the chance to associate with the likes of Germany, France & Italy is a huge chance for Serbia to augment its credentials as the Balkan Tiger. Putin wouldn’t be smiling about it though!
