The lobbyist wants “only those in favor of sanctions, nationalization of companies, urgent delivery of military aid to Ukraine and expulsion of 90% of the Russian Embassy staff in the new Serbian government”.
Written by Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst
Ever since the start of the Russian special military operation in response to Ukraine’s attempted ethnic cleansing in Donbass, the United States and NATO have been pressuring member states and even EU members not officially in NATO to send their Soviet-era and other Russian-made weapons to Ukraine. The reasons for the US and NATO to push for this are manifold.
First, the countries in question are getting rid of a large portion (if not nearly all) of their weapons, requiring them to buy new weapons which would replace Soviet-era systems.
It’s quite obvious these new weapons wouldn’t be Russian-made designs, which would at least make sense from an economic and logistical standpoint, as the military personnel operating such weapons wouldn’t need much in terms of training or storage, so they could get accustomed to the newer systems with relative ease.
With a NATO-Russian decoupling now turning into open hostility, these countries would never get new Russian weapons, nor could they service existing systems, as such a move would immediately be sanctioned by the bureaucratic oligarchy in Brussels. This leaves them with only one choice – extremely costly NATO weapons, preferably US-made.
Second, NATO and/or EU member states with Russian-made weapons are forced to break ties with Russia, quite possibly the only ties left with the Eurasian powerhouse. In doing so, Washington DC and Brussels are making sure that what previously might have been a friendly or at least cordial relationship turns into a cold or outright hostile one. Examples of this are Greece and Cyprus, both of which were pushed into a hostile stance towards Moscow thanks to fabricated reports of alleged Russian war crimes against ethnic Greek residents in and around Mariupol, when, in fact, those same people were subjected to nearly a decade of oppression at the hands of Azov Battalion.
The government in Athens even decided to send weapons to Ukraine, despite the overwhelming majority of Greeks being against such a move. Cyprus is also under tremendous pressure to send its Russian-made weapons, but it’s not eager to do so, since it would severely weaken the island country’s defenses and expose it to possible further incursions by the increasingly belligerent Turkey, a NATO member which has invaded and illegally occupied northern Cyprus in 1974.
Third, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are still not trained well enough for mass usage of US and NATO weapon systems, which means they are desperate to get Soviet-era weapons and other systems, since they are familiar with these. Countries like Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia and a few others still have significant stockpiles of such weapons.
One such country the US and NATO have set their eyes on is Serbia. In recent weeks, NATO lobbying groups and individuals have been given significant resources, orders of magnitude greater than usual, starting a frenzied campaign to disseminate NATO propaganda in Serbia.
Now, anyone familiar with the recent history of Serbia knows full well why NATO is doomed to fail in its quest to sway Serbian public opinion in its favor. For those who don’t know it, here’s a quick crash course. The US and NATO spent decades preparing the dismantling of Yugoslavia, which culminated in the bloody disintegration of Yugoslavia, with a nearly-decade long siege of all Serb-populated areas in all of former Yugoslavia, resulting in over a million Serbian refugees fleeing their well over millennium-old ancestral lands, in addition to tens of thousands of killed.
The Serbian people remember the role of NATO in all of this, with the “crowning achievement” of the supposedly “defensive” alliance being the 1999 NATO aggression which resulted in the occupation of Kosovo and Metohia, a Serbian province with an engineered Albanian majority after the ethnic cleansing of most Serbs from the area. After nearly 3 months of a ferocious bombing campaign involving thousands of NATO jets and tens of thousands of sorties dropping hundreds of thousands of bombs, the Serbian people remember the “benefits” of the so-called “freedom and democracy”. Now, the same people who did that want Serbia to join their crusade against Russia, and for that purpose, they’re mobilizing all of their resources, arrogantly thinking that the Serbian people have forgotten NATO’s countless war crimes.
A prominent (and deeply unpopular) Serbian NATO lobbyist, Dragan Shormaz, recently suggested Serbia could appease the belligerent alliance. The suggestions boil down to a series of backstabbing moves aimed at Serbia’s time-tested ally, Russia. Sormaz stated that “only those in favor of sanctions against Russia, nationalization of Russian-owned companies, urgent delivery of military aid to Ukraine and the expulsion of 90% of the staff of the Russian Embassy in Belgrade should enter the new Serbian government”. In short, Mr. Shormaz’ “brilliant” idea is to turn Serbia’s centuries-old ally into an enemy for the sake of an actual enemy which is still behind all of Serbia’s geopolitical problems and which is actively occupying Serbian territory (Kosovo) and arming the illegal narco-terrorist entity there.
But the NATO lobbyist didn’t stop there. He also stated that the “military aid” to Ukraine should include donated Russian and Belarusian-owned MiG-29 fighter jets, T-72M tanks and other Russian weapons that Serbia should send to ” help Ukraine defend” against “evil Putin”. He added this would “help Serbia” because it would then get “much better and more modern” NATO equipment.
Needless to say, these shocking statements didn’t only fail to gain traction in the Serbian public, but also caused an uproar of negative sentiments and reactions. Despite the tremendous amount of pressure it has been exposed to in the last two months, the Serbian government is well aware of how the public feels about the aggressive alliance and that such a shameless move would not go unanswered. Despite US’s and NATO’s threats and attempts of blackmail, the Serbian people will not give in, especially not against Russia and the Russian people, to which they are deeply connected on multiple levels.

Why is some foreigner with a non-Serbian name even being allowed to speak anti-Serbian propaganda in Serbia? The Serbian people need to forcefully eliminate this parasite and anyone who supports him.
Cuti tu obrezani.
Nina puši samo bez filtera.
Because the elections were rigged there too, like everywhere.

Definitely the SAME psychotic troll completely lost his mind and just keep spamming crazy nonsense.
Seek professional help, perhaps it’s not too late. Probably it is, but at least try.
Copium is one hell of a drug. JHK is bat shit crazy, probably mentral retardation
Just don’t forget one very important thing Nato punks. It isn’t the weapon that fight and wins the War (we’ve seen that in Israeli pathetic attempts to scare Iran, Israel with 250 nukes, can not scare Iran), so it isn’t the weapon that wins the War, but a heart in the hero. Just keep it coming now, do what you have to, ain’t gonna work.
If the Serbian government agrees to this the Serbian people will rise up against it. The Serbian people would never accept Serbian weapons going to Ukraine to kill Russians.
By propaganda they willThryve accepted rigged elections just like everywhere else and people have known for decades When we were young no one believed elections were anything but rigged, but the kids coming up from the 80s on had been brainwashed to think they were legitimate I less the west said they weren’t.
BTW Catholic Canadas deputy PM Christ a Greenland s grand father was a Ukraine loving nazi collaborator who worked in media producing nazi news and promoted anti Russian propagandas accusing them of genocide Whilst lying totally to the world about the nazis holocaust.
Freeland I typed. That’s, her name.
I hope Serbia continues to stand strong. They should arrest that stupid NATO stooge for trying to destroy their country. NATO is nothing but a bully. The atrocities committed by NATO are to numerous list here.
who is funding this lunatic Dragan Shormaz? How did his private wealth develop over the last few years?
serbia remembers the ass-whoopin’ USA/NATIO gave them in the 1990’s…heheheh…
funny this article states the serbs got closed in and killed, even though they were the agressors who invaded bosnia en ethnicly cleansed bosnia wich without a real army had no chance to fight back. the serbs killed whole villages at ones.
Funny that you believe shit on CNN.
Looks like a virulent cancer of Yanki Bots are infecting SF to such an extent that it will expire shortly unless some serious surgery is carried out sooner rather than later. It is awful to see this attack by FUKUS and its minions unfold before our eyes. Maybe it is time to bring back Disqus
Utterly shameless move by NATO. If anything Serbia should be sending weapons and men to support Russia given recent history.
That’s the problem there. Maybe the reason why the special moronic operation is failing so badly is because it should’ve been a full on invasion where the Putin cockroaches would get to destroy every city in Ukraine for no reason other than Vladimir Putin is just a terrorist piece of shit cockroach who despises his sovereign neighbor.
The only special moronic operation that is failing is the one by trolls on this site.
63 comments thus far. At least 80 percent posted by trolls! This is ridiculous! SF needs to wake up to this major problem!
Don’t you know by now that Southfront is a Russian troll farm? Ignorance is bliss.
WHO CARES,PUTINS GONNA FUK YOU UP COMPLETELY,THEN BECOME EMPEROR AND HERO: HA,HA,HA,HA,HARR,YOU HAVE NO POWER ANYMORE NATO POOFTAS ARR,HA,HA,HA HARR’
YOU are the troll farm, troll mental asylum, troll cesspool…. with all your crazy trolling characters and sick schizoid personalities you braindead cocksucking cockroach from Zelenskys shitter.
SF doesn’t even have a moderator to flush you pile of shit back to the cesspool you crawled from you mentally diseased degenerate.
That will never happen. Hello from Serbia.
Destroy the traitor,damage tyres anything,hound him,stop him and capp him,serbs must act swift!
The way things are going, I won’t be surprised if this Quisling suddenly commits suicide by shooting himself in the back, twice.
Yes, the amount of NATO propaganda has increased several-fold since Russia went in to stop nazi terrorists. The millions or billions of $ that US and EU demons invested into propaganda is showing, yet still, only the most idiotic and already nazi-loving and liberal trash part of our population falls for their propaganda. All NATO lobbyists in Serbia should be brutally killed, these propagandists are not humans, they are rats and cockroaches genetically mutated to take on a human form to deceit us.
SUGGESTION = Call the NATO lobbyist to a meeting in Servia and then arrest the repugnants and send them to de-mine Mariupol, but without instruments……
That Quisling should be donated to Ukraine as a defensive weapon, aka human shield.
Our govt knows that there will be protests if they do that, we are waiting for the trigger :)
Anyone in Serbia stupid enough to obey these orders will quickly join another traitor Zoran Djindjic – no amount of bodyguards will prevent that. Sh1tbgas making such demands are no more than sh1tstirers trying to create chaos in Serbia.
