The government in Berlin pursues the declared goal of making Germany the leading power, and the army of that country the largest army in Europe, and the reason is not a concern for the state of democracies and freedom, but a war policy that is not limited only to Ukraine, but is "igniting" again in the Balkans, warns the German Socialist Equality Party (German: Sozialistische Gleichheitspartei, SGP).

That party, in a text published on the "World Socialists" website (, indicates that Serbia and Kosovo, in December, were on the verge of a military conflict, which had the potential to flare up.

The attempt of the dominantly Albanian government to impose its authority in the Serb-populated north caused sharp protests, the text reminds.

Meanwhile, the situation has calmed down again, but observers believe that it is only a matter of time until the conflict breaks out again. SGP points out that Western propaganda ignores, as usual, the background of the conflict and has identified one, responsible, criminal - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, under whose leadership this country has had close relations with Russia.

Serbia is trying, like other countries in the region, to become a member of the EU and has condemned Russia's military action against Ukraine, but has not severed relations with Russia and refuses to support the sanctions imposed by the EU on Moscow.

The fact is that the new escalation of the conflict in Kosovo is the result of the "aggressive leadership of the EU", which uses the war in Ukraine to cement its political and economic dominance in the Western Balkans, and Germany plays a leading role in this, according to the SGP.

With the war in Ukraine, the attitude of the EU changed, and above all in Berlin, all levers were activated in order to speed up the integration of the Balkans into the Union.
SGP also reminds that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz visited Kosovo, Serbia and North Macedonia in June, invited regional leaders to Berlin in early November, and participated in the EU-Western Balkans Summit in Tirana in early December.

Germany and the EU want to achieve more goals with this engagement, they state in the SGP.
In terms of foreign policy, the Western Balkans should be firmly included in the 'war front' against Russia, economically the influence of Russia and China should be stopped, and the EU's motive is to close the Balkan route, through which refugees come to Europe.
Brussels and Berlin, as in the case of the breakup of Yugoslavia, work closely with the elites of the Balkan states under the motto "divide and rule".

In this, Kosovo plays a key role. Already in 1999, it served as a reason for the war against Serbia, which stood in the way of the plans of Germany and the USA, reminds the SGP and states that the occasion was constructed - that genocide was being committed in Kosovo, NATO without the mandate of the United Nations, attacked Serbia militarily and caused the secession of Kosovo.

SGP points out that Kosovo, although a province that is clearly part of Serbia, was placed under international administration by the great powers, and Pristina declared independence in 2008, which the USA, Germany and most European powers recognized as an independent state.
In this, Washington and Berlin work with "elements that committed brutal war crimes" and have close ties to organized crime.

The inviolability of state borders, to which everyone refers as a sacred principle since the Russian annexation of Crimea, did not apply to Kosovo, the SGP states.
At the same time, they point out that the parallels between Kosovo and Crimea are obvious.

"In German foreign policy, such double standards have no significance," they believe in this party.
The SGP states that the NATO war against Serbia in 1999 was a welcome occasion to break through the military abstinence imposed due to Nazi crimes, and to re-engage in an imperialist war for the first time since 1945.

Now Berlin is using the regime in Pristina to put pressure on Serbia and increase its influence in the Balkans.

SGP notes that Berlin encouraged Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti in his intentions to impose his rule in the north of Kosovo.

The SGP indicates that Serbia has fulfilled all the agreements reached so far, while the Kosovo government is doing so only partially.

In this regard, it reminds that Kosovo did not form the Community of Serb-majority Municipalities, and that Kurti received the support of Berlin to impose Kosovo license plates in the north of Kosovo, while even the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), which otherwise supports an aggressive foreign policy of the German government, admitted that Brussels noticed that Vucic was constructive in that conflict.
With what arrogance Germany acts against Serbia and other countries that are in the way of its geopolitical interests, a comment in "Zeit" shows, where language similar to the war rhetoric of Hitler's Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels used.

As in Ukraine, where Berlin connected with fans of Nazi collaborators, in the Balkans it follows the criminal tracks of the Nazi regime, according to SGP.
