Summary of the week 14

Another week of intertwining lessons from the past and teachings for the future. From every era, we have inexorably drawn the worst, many believe, to whom neither today nor the same day 25 years ago brought encouragement. Nor hope. The compilation of the week summarizes what will remain after this June week.

Perhaps out of revenge to Strasbourg, or defiance to Brussels, or perhaps just continuing from where they left off. Either way, the Kosovo government is determined to carry out expropriation in the municipalities in the north at all costs.

However, Professor of Law Dusan Celic believes that this cost is not final.

"Unfortunately, in this period leading up to the elections in Kosovo and Metohija, I do not expect anything other than further escalation when it comes to endangering the human rights of Serbs," says Professor Celic.

At all costs and everywhere in the region. That's how Prime Minister Kurti saw his role in other people's elections. However, voters interpreted it in their own way.

"His desire to control all Albanians in the region is proving to be catastrophic," summarizes the election results in the region, says Demo Berisa, President of the Albanian National Council in Serbia.

We punish others, we do not acknowledge our own. Kosovo's policy towards the crimes established in the 1990s continues. Caslav Jolic from Djurakovac, although claiming he does not know where it began, has reached his concluding remarks.

"I am in your hands, and you may do as you please," Jolic said before the judicial panel.

Those to whom he addressed are, according to analysts, eager to take over both history and justice.

"Albanians have not paid for what they have done," says analyst Aleksandar Mitic. "I mean primarily the crimes of the KLA," Mitic explains what price he is referring to.

There is no price for victims and suffering, but the agreement that was supposed to stop it, 25 years later, can be evaluated.

Historian Aleksandar Gudžic from Gracanica testifies firsthand: "The Kumanovo Agreement marked the end of the war and the beginning of the suffering of the Serbs."

For the hosts of the agreements that preceded the agreement, it may not be historical. But, say the residents of today's North Macedonia, they were very interested.

"If the bear dances at the neighbor's, it will dance at ours too," says Nino Velickovski, former director of the Cultural and Sports Administration of the Municipality of Kumanovo.

Decades later, that bear danced at the doors of all employers in the region. Germans today do not ask how much it costs. With new quotas, workers from the Balkans are even more desirable.

However, before they buy a ticket, they should make a calculation, advises Safet Grxhaliu, former director of the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce.

"The 500 euros they earn in Kosovo or the Balkans is worth about 2000 euros in Germany. Because the costs of living and life in general are different," warns Grxhaliu.

Perhaps when they meet there in the foreign land, all our people will understand each other better. Because here, even with a dictionary full of phrases that sound the same in many languages, no one understands anything.
