Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic, Croatia's New President (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 03/05/15 5:33 am)

The right-wing Croatian Democratic Unionist (HDZ) Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic on 19 February 2015 has assumed the office of President of Croatia.

She was born in Fiume/Rijeka in 1968; as Croatian Foreign Minister she steered her country into the EU and NATO. She was formerly Croatia's Ambassador to the US, is a member of the Trilateral Commission, and was Assistant Secretary General for Public Diplomacy of NATO.

I would say these are fantastic credentials for the Empire, which seems ready to compensate her.

It is reported that both the EU and NATO are preparing a new Kosovo, incorporating the Serbian province of Vojvodina. This time instead of Muslim with a Cyrillic alphabet the new country would be Catholic with a Roman alphabet in a return to the old Austro-Hungarian influence.

The media and the NGO of George Soros are building up the case, calling the Vojvodina the "Hungarian Kosovo," claiming that the province of 21,603 square kilometers with 1,931,000 inhabitants is multi-ethnic and needs to become a new special independent country where all groups can "prosper." There are 25 ethnic groups in the region. The largest is Serbian 66%, then Hungarian 13%, Croatian 2.7%, Slovak 2.6%, Roms 2%, and also Romanian, Albanian, Bunkjevci, etc. The Muslims in the province are no more than 4000, but many Albanians have transferred there.  Are they from the UCK (Kosovo Liberation Army)?

The main Croatian reason might be the usual dream of a Greater Croatia, including part of Bosnia where with the help of the US the Croatians in the 1990s carried out an ethnic cleansing of the Serbs of the Krajina. During WWII the same Serbs in order to be saved from the Ustasha asked for the protection of Italy and even requested Italian citizenship.
Another reason might be to punish Serbia for its support to Russia and its reluctance to enter the EU and NATO.  The idea of this new "democratic" country is also supported by the Hungarian PM Orban and by the ethnic German Romanian PM, Klaus Iohannis.

Someone said something about Ukraine?

JE comments:  The world's attention has been drawn away from the Balkans for a decade or more, but as Eugenio Battaglia reminds us, there's a great deal going on.  I'm grateful Eugenio has drawn our attention to these developments.

I'd like to know more about the independence movement in Vojvodina.
