The British Homunculus In Kosovo And ‘Greater Albania’


Last week, two radically opposite events took place in Serbia. Serbia disjointedly celebrated the 25th anniversary of the operation with the participation of Russian paratroopers to capture the Slatina airfield in Pristina, the March to Pristina. This event however was widely covered in the Russian media.

And in the part not controlled by Belgrade, known as the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo, this was shamefully kept silent. But the entry of NATO troops into the territory was celebrated with fanfare (by the way, these same troops could not in any way prevent the entry of a column of Russian armored vehicles into the airfield).

Many foreign guests have also arrived in Pristina. Among them was the battered former British Prime Minister and war criminal Tony Blair, who spoke out in support of the separatists.

Former US President Bill Clinton, in his X post (former Twitter), stressed that “25 years ago, the United States led the NATO Allies in an air campaign that successfully expelled Serbian forces, ending a decade of repression and a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing and ending the war in Kosovo. Today I am giving thanks for 25 years of peace in Kosovo.

Let’s note the unscrupulous manipulation of facts about a decade of repression that had never happened. Of course, he did not anyhow mention the support of the US special services for terrorists from the Kosovo Liberation Army.

The President of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani, during a speech at a solemn meeting of the Assembly of Kosovo on the same day, said that when NATO troops entered the land of Kosovo, they were not only soldiers, but also saviors. When the peacekeepers set foot on the ground of a bloody, crushed, destroyed Kosovo, tears, screams and flowers turned into hugs that greeted NATO soldiers, they created a symphony of emotions of freedom.. On this day, we will remember President Ibrahim Rugova‘s stubborn resistance to freedom, independence and democracy, as well as the strong alliances he created.

A positive image of NATO is needed now more than ever to support the old narrative of peacekeeping, which is why many Western media have actively seized on the events of 25 years ago. In addition, this is an occasion for another demonization of Serbia and the Serbs, which the West does quite meticulously and regularly.

It is quite indicative that days before, Osmani traveled to the United States to speak at the UN and used a Serbian passport for this. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic drew attention to this. Such an act is not as poetic as the pathetic speech in parliament of a separatist pseudo-state, but demonstrates typical hypocrisy.

As for the mentioned alliances, it is significant that even the UN is adding fuel to the fire of separatism, contributing to the development of institutions in Kosovo. Thus, the website of the Development Program of this organization (UNDP) marks the 25th anniversary of the celebration of their work in Kosovo. Not in Kosovo and Metohija, as this region is officially designated in the Constitution of Serbia, but namely Kosovo. And on that page there is not a word about what has been done for the Serbs, who now live in a hostile environment, as well as the preservation of the cultural heritage of the region (a number of temples and monasteries there are officially under UNESCO protection).

However, the most odious figure in the Albanian political world is now the head of government of Kosovo, Albin Kurti. At a ceremony in Pristina, he said that June 12 evokes a lot of emotions among the people of Kosovo, the main of which are relief, joy and hope. And three days before that, he made a statement that we have a problem with Belgrade, which has not distanced itself either from Milosevic in the past or from Putin in the present. This is how he assessed the meeting of the leaders of Serbia and Republika Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina, at which they adopted a joint statement, where they considered Kosovo as an integral part of Serbia.

However, there is a significant difference between the previous leaders of the separatist region and the current one. Kurti is a foster-child of the British special services, who have nurtured him since his student years. During the conflict in 1999, Kurti was one of the leaders of the student trade union of the University of Pristina and kept a certain distance from participating in the armed conflict. Although he was a political assistant to the famous Albanian separatist ideologue Adem Demaci, who is called a dissident in the West and even compared to Nelson Mandela.

Kurti served about two and a half years in a Yugoslav prison for separatism, but was pardoned by Vojislav Kostunica due to pressure from Western countries.

By the way, Kurti‘s wife Rita Augestad Knudsen is from Norway and is engaged in research in the field of defense and security (which recalls the stories of Anglo-Saxon brokage with the wives of former Presidents of Georgia and Ukraine Mikhail Saakashvili and Viktor Yushchenko).

It is significant that already in the breakaway Kosovo, Kurti repeatedly had problems with the authorities, which indicates an inter-factional struggle, which was backed by different forces the United States and Britain, respectively. After he became prime minister in 2020, his ambitions were already extrapolated to neighboring Albania, where a movement was specially registered for him. For this reason, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama did not even communicate with Albin Kurti during his ceremonial visit to Kosovo. Although opponents are trying to expose Kurti‘s personality as the most authoritarian, corrupt, uneducated and anti-democratic politician, his popularity is quite high.

After all, Albanians who are not only in Albania, but also on the territory of Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro consider themselves to be an integral whole, regardless of religion, social status and political views. This ethno-nationalist project is known as Greater Albania, and the election of Kurti as the prime minister of Kosovo has previously been noted as a signal for further escalation of the conflict with neighbors and tougher indoctrination.

Apparently, this is where everything is going now. And Kurti‘s unwillingness to resolve the issue with the Serbian municipalities in any way and the deliberate creation of new problems for the Serbs of Kosovo and Metohija is a clear evidence of this.
