The man with dignity: Ivanov cancels meeting with Hahn

Tuesday, 21 March 2017
President Gjorge Ivanov cancelled Tuesday his meeting with European Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn. Why? Because Ivanov is a man with dignity, unlike the rest of Macedonia’s politicians.

According to the President’s Office, EU Ambassador Samuel Zbogar was informed on Friday that a meeting with Commissioner Hahn and the three Members of the European Parliament was not on the President’s agenda.

No need for a meeting

„President Ivanov has already presented his positions to Commissioner Hahn at their last meeting on February 10 and they remain unchanged. President Ivanov said clearly and unequivocally that he would not assign a government mandate unless there is public condemnation and rejection of the Tirana platform“, reads the press release.

Since the meeting will not materialize, the Office says the President gives up the scheduled meeting slot to representatives of civil movement „For Joint Macedonia“, who have asked for a meeting with Commissioner Hahn.

Meet with the people

„It is good for the Commissioner to get acquainted with the arguments and reasons for the protests of Macedonian citizens over the past three weeks“, adds the press release.

Place your bets!

Kassandra visited Skopjie briefly on Wednesday and had lunch with two good old friends. Both former Foreign Ministers of the Republic of Macedonia, FYROM according the Greeks, but this does not make any difference to the story although the Greeks, not Greece, have a leading role in the play.

What is the story and what the Greeks have to do with it? Gevgelija Casinos is the main issue of the story and the Greeks happen to be the gamblers. There are two big casinos in Gevgelija, a town on the Greek-Macedonian border. In both casinos (which are on the FYROM side) the clientele is Greeks who are not allowed (by law) to play in the Greek casinos and spend their week-ends (and their money) in Gevgelija to gamble and be entertained – a decompression from the ongoing Greek crisis.

The Flamingo Hotel is touted as the top casino, owned by Novomatic which is managed by former Formula One driver Niki Lauda. The other is owned by Swedish interests but is seems it has some kind of problems as is subject to all kind of daily controls by the authorities.

The Flamingo has top quality management and has, according to sources, never had any serious government audits or controls; “obviously it is impeccable in every aspect” said the source ironically.

Perhaps Austrians are experts in casinos and always do things right. Indeed, thanks to the Austrian expertise, the understanding of the government of VMRO in Skopjie and the Greeks donors, The Flamingo has proved to be a great investment!

During Kassandra’s lunch in Doirani restaurant (which serves top quality grilled meat) we learned that the Friday before, Commissioner Johannes Hahn arrived in Skopjie on an official visit, in a flash trip of 6 hours. Hahn concluded that everything is fine and the country can go to elections; easy and safe. Hahn’s statements provided important support to the stability of the country which was welcomed by most foreign investors.

By the way, in a nearly unbelievable coincidence, according to Kassandra’s source, Niki Lauda was on the same fight that brought our Commissioner to Skopje. Lauda left from the airport directly for Gevgelia, contrarily to our Commissioner who went directly to the offices of the EU delegation.

On this occasion Kassandra should add that the Representation office must be heavily understaffed as there are several stories in the local media about the casinos “of Brussels interests” which are not translated from Makedonski because of the lack of translator. It is a pity, because the stories are often also accompanied by pictures.

According to the official biography of Commissioner Johannes Hahn, from 1997 to 2003 he worked as a member of the board of directors of Novomatic and one time served as CEO of the company.

The shareholders of the Flamingo Casino and Novomatic are currently not known to the public.

Sabotage of a state: The US Embassy in Macedonia has 55 ‚diplomats‘, three times more than Bulgaria

US Senators want Rex Tillerson to personally handle investigation on Jess Baily

The US Embassy in Macedonia has 55 ‚diplomats‘, three times more than Bulgaria

Wednesday, 15 March 2017
The United States has two, three times more diplomats in Macedonia compared to much larger nations around the world.The official information from the US State Department is that there are 55 permanent diplomats in Macedonia led by Jess Baily. There are 28 US diplomats classified as „secretary“, 15 individuals without an official title, among which is the head of the USAid, and 11 military attaches.

This number compared to countries around Macedonia, paints a rather strange image.

Macedonia is one of the leading nations in the world by density, i.e. with number of US diplomats/sq km.

Macedonia has 25,713 sq km, which means the US has one diplomat per 467 sq km, and one diplomat per 34,545 people.

Comparing our country to Bulgaria, the US State Department shows only 18 diplomats. Comparing apples to apples, Bulgaria has 1 US diplomat/110,897 people and one diplomat per 6,159 sq/m.

Interestingly enough, the US State Department has nearly identical number of diplomats in Serbia! Serbia has 53, while Ankara, who has been rocked by multiple coups has 120.

The Turkish – Macedonian connection with US Ambassador Jess Baily is a glaring one. Baily managed the first (Taxim Sqr protests) coup which was suppose to remove Erdogan from power. The coup failed and Ankara gave Baily the boot.

Serbia has over three times (7 million) the Macedonian population, but it has 2 diplomats fewer than Macedonia.

The new US embassy was opened in July 2009, it’s the biggest US Embassy in southern Europe by size with over 8,000 sq meters, which once again is very disproportional for the size of the country. There are over 300 employees at the US Embassy, whose structure has at least four floors below ground occupied by the CIA and other US intel agencies – according to radio Skopje’s Aleksandar Chomovski.

Brazil, one of the largest countries in the world by land and population, has four diplomats fewer than Macedonia. Sweden, with 10m people in the country, has 34 US diplomats working in the country, 21 fewer than Macedonia.

Investigations – including of corruption and fraud: EU watchdog investigating European Investment Bank for maladministration

EU watchdog investigating European Investment Bank for maladministration

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is being investigated for maladministration, after the European Ombudsman sent a formal letter opening the case this week (27 February 2017).

The investigation comes after ClientEarth, CEE Bankwatch Network and Counter Balance highlighted the lack of transparency at the bank, and its attempts to block scrutiny. This complaint, submitted in September 2016, was accepted by the Ombudsman, which announced it would investigate the case and ask the EIB to explain its transparency policy and reaction to the NGOs’ challenge.

ClientEarth, CEE Bankwatch Network and Counter Balance complained because the EIB – which invests around €80 billion in projects annually – blocked a challenge to its new transparency policy from the three NGOs.

The EIB has a huge impact on environmental decisions around the world, from whether a dam will be built on vulnerable ecosystems to whether funding will go to renewables or fossil fuels.

Its transparency policy keeps all information about investigations – including of corruption and fraud – confidential. It also creates illegal exceptions to people’s right to scrutinise the bank. Given the amount of money at stake, this raises serious concerns about the accountability of the bank.

ClientEarth lawyer Anaïs Berthier said: “If the EIB stops public scrutiny of its actions using its so-called transparency policy – and blocks challenges to that policy – it is failing doubly in its duties. The complaint mechanism is there to make sure the bank – and the projects it funds – are accountable for every Euro of public money spent, so it is essential that people can use it.”

Director of Counter Balance Xavier Sol said: “As an NGO coalition promoting a high level of transparency for the EU public banks, we welcome the Ombudsman’s decision to open an investigation. We hope this will shed light on the culture of secrecy still prevailing at the EIB and on the need for the bank to raise the bar on transparency. Indeed it is key for European taxpayers to know that European funds are spent in the public interest.”

Anna Roggenbuck, Policy officer at CEE Bankwatch Network said: “The European Ombudsman opened its investigation after our initial complaint was rejected by the Complaints Mechanism of the EIB on inadmissibility grounds. The Ombudsman decision is a clear signal the claims were admissible. We are glad she will investigate the way the complaint office took its decision a few months after it first confirmed admissibility for the complaint, and whether it was caused by management intervention.”

Now, the Ombudsman will ask the European Investment Bank to respond to the complaints. If she finds the bank guilty of maladministration, she will make recommendations to improve its transparency. This would shed light on the bank’s practices and exert significant pressure to improve.

NATO dropped 10t of depleted Uranium on Kosovo in 1999

NATO dropped 10t of depleted Uranium on Kosovo in 1999
Thursday, 09 March 2017
Kosovo’s environmental organizations have sounded the red alarm after the Gazeta Express published that NATO hid a report which says that during the 1999 bombing NATO threw out as many as 10 tons of depleted uranium.

Media in Kosovo have published even the exact locations where the bombs fell the most during the bombing. The map shows that the biggest concentration of bombs was in the Sar Planina region and the Dervenska Klisura and Kacanik region.

The report says that uranium adversely influences the quality of air, soil and water, and can cause abortions and cancer.

In terms of soil pollution, the biggest impact is on  corn, sun flower, soya, sugar beet and all vegetables.

Due to this fact, the whole amount of food Kosovo gets  is from import. After the bombing, the locals were advised not to plant their fields as the pollution is great and planting can have serious consequences on their health.

Foreign soldiers in Kosovo (KFOR) were forbidden to eat outside their bases which serves as proof that they were aware of the adverse effects of NATO’s bombs.

No matter what the effects though, Kosovo has built statues of both Bill and Hillary Clinton for „services“ rendered.

The Agents of the Anti-Russian U.S. „War Party“ in Europe
In the previous installment of my analysis of the leaked Montenegrin government files, I discussed the U.S. visit of Igor Lukšić, who was then the minister of foreign affairs of Montenegro, and his meetings with Victoria Nuland, assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian Affairs, Charles (Charlie) Kupchan, a presidential advisor and director for Europe in the National Security Council, and three U.S. senators: John McCain, chairman of the Armed Services committee, Ron Johnson, chairman of the subcommittee on Europe and Regional Security Cooperation, and Christopher Murphy, vice-chairman of the same subcommittee.[1] Based on the confidential report of their conversations with Lukšić compiled by the Embassy of Montenegro in Washington, DC, I was able to show that there exists a significant rift within NATO as to whether the further expansion of the alliance is a good idea.

It is also interesting to note that the most revealing statements on this matter were made by the president Obama’s advisor Kupchan. In fact, it was he who recommended to Lukšić to meet and closely consult with

CIA Agent: Christoph Heusgen

Christoph Heusgen, the advisor to the German chancellor Angela Merkel for foreign and security policy, during his upcoming visit to Berlin. In this way, in my opinion, Kupchan signaled that Heusgen was one of the key U.S. agents of influence placed in the top echelon of the German government and therefore a trusted aide in sustaining and furthering the U.S. geopolitical agenda in Europe, especially its aggressive, militaristic stance toward Russia. And, indeed, as I will show, the leaked confidential report of Lukšić’s visit to Berlin, written by the officials at the Embassy of Montenegro in Berlin, bears this out.

Lukšić visited Berlin on March 24, 2015, about ten days after his visit to the U.S. He first met with the German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier. Steinmeier became the foreign minister of Germany in December 2013 as the result of the grand coalition between the two largest German political parties, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Social Democratic Party (SPD). While CDU’s Angela Merkel kept her job as the chancellor, Steinmeier,  as the SPD leader, became the foreign minister. He was also a foreign minister in the earlier grand coalition arrangement from 2005 to 2009 and a vice-chancellor from 2007 to 2009.

What is very curious is that in the last few years, since the eruption of the Ukrainian crisis, Steinmeier has positioned himself in the public eye as the supporter of a less hardline approach toward Russia. He was for instance one of the key advocates of the Minsk Accords I-II, which he negotiated together with the Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, and which probably offer the only realistic chance of putting an end to the conflict in Ukraine.[2] In addition, he has travelled to Russia frequently and met with the Russian president Vladimir Putin.[3] And yet, according to the leaked report, during the meeting with Lukšić, there were several instances where Steinmeier expressed a clear hostility toward Russia and the Russian influence in the Balkans.

First, Steinmeier stated that he was pleased with Montenegro in its ability to remain consistent in its foreign policy toward Russia (that is to say, in sustaining the anti-Russian policies, such as the economic sanctions and critical political rhetoric), even though it had found itself under the intense Russian pressure. He claimed that Russia was actively engaged in vastly expanding its influence in the Balkans and inquired whether Lukšić could describe the concrete cases of the Russian activities in Montenegro.

Lukšić appeared eager to comply and pointed out the presence of what he referred to as „the Russian propaganda“ for which he accused certain opposition parties, non-governmental organizations, and the Serbian Orthodox Church. He stated that it was this Russian-financed „propaganda“ which was responsible for low public support for NATO membership of Montenegro, as if the citizens of Montenegro had not been highly critical of NATO, even before the re-shaping of the Russian foreign and security policy under Putin. This attempt of Lukšić to ascribe the legitimate civic concerns to foreign manipulation was condemned by many Montenegrin public figures after the report was leaked to the press and led to a lawsuit against him by the Movement for Neutrality of Montenegro (MNMNE), which is still ongoing.[4]

Lukšić also tried to assuage Steinmeier’s fears about the Russian economic influence in Montenegro by claiming that after the sanctions were put in place, the volume of economic activity had drastically fallen and that the Russians were now generally present only as tourists. Even the number of Russian tourists was declining, Lukšić added (most likely with enthusiasm in his voice), as if this was a good thing and not a serious problem for the Montenegrin budget. This is yet another example of how ideological commitment to the „Euro-Atlantic“ [NATO] agenda by the corrupt Montenegrin ruling class, to which Lukšić belongs, goes directly against the vital economic interests of the Montenegrin citizens.

Lukšić’s next meeting in Berlin was with Christoph Heusgen, Angela Merkel’s advisor, for whom, as I pointed out earlier, there is a strong reason to believe that he is more willing to serve the U.S. hegemonic foreign policy goals in Europe than the national interest of the government he is supposed to be advising. The national interest of Germany is economic cooperation and political detente with Russia, and not antagonistic relations pushed for by the NATO political and military figures and the „war party“ in Washington, DC, which includes the members of both the Republican and Democrat political establishments and is ideologically legitimized by the Council on Foreign Relations and the Atlantic Council. The German-Russian animosities have proven disastrous for Germany not once, but twice during the last century and any repetition of hostility would lead to the same tragic outcome.

Heusgen, however, seemed indifferent to the abyss into which the further confrontation with Russia may push Germany, and, in his conversation with Lukšić, he displayed a sharp anti-Russian tone. He demanded to know whether any Montenegrin top officials would attend the Victory Day parade in Moscow scheduled to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of the WWII in Europe. As I have written at the time, there was a concerted effort on the part of the U.S.-NATO circles to make sure that no European head of state or government accepted Putin’s invitation in order to deepen the isolation of Russia from the international community.[5] This effort was largely successful and the only European states that sent their top officials to attend the parade were Serbia and Macedonia.

Lukšić replied to Heusgen that the final decision about the parade had not been made yet, but took Heusgen’s hint so seriously that not long after his return to Montenegro, the president Filip Vujanović announced that he would in fact not attend the parade, even though he had already accepted the invitation. This sudden U-turn created a diplomatic scandal as the Russian ambassador to Montenegro Andrei Nesterenko publicly expressed his surprise, underscoring the pitiful lack of independence in the Montenegrin leadership’s decision making.[6]

Heusgen also told Lukšić that Germany would strongly support a positive decision on the invitation to Montenegro to join NATO at the meeting of NATO foreign ministers in December 2015. In fact, he promised that Germany would lobby for the Montenegrin cause among those NATO member states which have publicly stated their reluctance to vote for further expansion, such as France. In addition, Heusgen demonstrated very sophisticated knowledge of the U.S. domestic political process (no doubt due to his close cooperation with Obama’s advisor Kupchan) in that he claimed that it would make it easier for the U.S. if the invitation was issued at this meeting rather than at the 2016 NATO Summit in Warsaw, because NATO expansion with just one country (and as small as Montenegro) would be „a difficult sell“ in the U.S. Congress. Needless to say, this shows a high degree of conspiratorial non-transparency with the intention to mislead the legitimate representatives of the American people by those political forces whose grand geopolitical design is the militaristic encirclement of Russia.

Moreover, Heusgen promised Lukšić the German logistical and financial assistance in confronting what, based on Lukšić’s complaints, he perceived as the Russian influence in the Montenegrin political life. The primary focus of these activities was to be directed at raising the public support for NATO membership (which hovers around 30 percent) as well as supporting the various pro-NATO media outlets and organizations. In fact, it was precisely this type of foreign money infusion that has enabled the pro-NATO camp to stay afloat in Montenegro all these years, considering that NATO membership has no internal grounding or domestic legitimacy in the vast segments of the Montenegrin population.

In conclusion, one can say that this leaked Montenegrin government report has revealed the full extent to which both the German foreign minister Steinmeier and the top Merkel’s advisor Heusgen, contrary to their public appearance and rhetoric, have been willing to act as the agents of the anti-Russian U.S. „war party“ in Europe. This is a serious matter that needs to be taken into consideration not only by the German people whose representatives they purport to be, but also by the citizens of other EU nations, considering that similar agents of influence operate within their political elites as well. Without the timely discovery and political replacement of these individuals, another big-scale war in Europe may be around the corner.

Die inkompetende EU Commission, kann nicht die SAA Abkommen mit Bosnien umsetzen

European Commission takes the blame for the delay in the implementation of the SAA Agreement

By   /   07/03/2017  /   No Comments


The European Commission informed the BiH Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations that there has been a delay in the implementation of the adapted Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA) of the EU with BiH, because of their ill-timed adoption of amendments to the relevant Commission Regulation, and that they need two months to correct this mistake.

BiH Minister of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations, Mirko Sarovic, said earlier that he sent a letter to EC demanding the correction of quota for export of goods from BiH to EU countries. Sarovic explained that it stopped local producers from exporting their goods in EU and EU countries were able to export goods in BiH under new regulations and custom taxes.

When European Commission admitted the mistake, Sarovic said that, with the letter of apologies, he also received assurances that the system of tariff quotas, once established, will have retroactive effect from February 1. Because all this is their mistake, all exporters from BiH in which the EU has not approved the preferential regime in this period, paid duty shall be refunded in full.

“A mistake European administration, which means disapproval preferential regime, first made problems to exporters of fish. They felt it, already on February 16, when old the tariffs were fulfilled. But, through the adaptation of the SAA, BiH have quota of duty-free export of 500 tons of fish, and this is much more than the previous quota”, Sarovic said.

According to the representatives of producers, the competent Ministry did not take seriously their early warnings on this matter. They estimated that the European Commission and local authorities didn’t act responsible in this issue, but agree that the good news is the information that European Commission will  refund the expenses.

BiH Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations must now contact all producers who suffered financial damage in this case, and inform them about this letter. Also, they must inform them about clear and precise guidelines on how to apply for reimbursement, as is their right./IBNA

Chemical wastes in Albania

SPECIAL REPORT/There are strong suspicions that around 40 thousand kg of radioactive wastes have entered Italy to Albania with the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia as final destination. We will have inputs from state officials, members of civil society and politicians

By Edison Kurani

In Albania, suspicions are mounting in relation to the arrival of a large quantity of radioactive wastes concealed as imported urban wastes.

This denouncement initially came from Italy, where an environmental organization said that 1300 containers, weighing 30 tons each, filled with radioactive wastes, have entered Italy from the port of Durres last year.

This suspicion was reinforced by publications in the Greek media. The hazardous wastes are suspected to have originated from this country. Then they are thought to have arrived in Durres to later be dispatched in other areas of the country.

The opposition is using this to reveal, as it declares, the true face of the government led by the socialist Prime Minister, Edi Rama.

Meanwhile, the government has not reacted.

However, the government’s head of communications has denied such traffic through a posting in social networks.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry has mobilized the Albanian ambassador to Italy, Anila Bitri to demand explanations from the Italian portal.

Through a letter sent to the portal, Mrs. Bitri quotes the Albanian Attorney General, Adritatik Llalla to have declared that “there is no trace of illegal entry of wastes from Italy”.

Bitri says that the publication of this information has damaged the government’s and the PM’s image.

On the other hand, “Alliance Against the Import of Wastes”, has addressed to General Attorney Adriatik Llalla with an official request for information on the wastes that have entered in Albania in the past two years and the customs points that have been used.

Under these circumstances, Prosecution of Durres is verifying with the Department of Customs if urban wastes have arrived from Italy through the Port of Durres.

Prosecutor from Durres, Agron Gjana says that investigations are taking place to see if this is the case. A team of prosecutors has arrived at the Department of Customs to see the practice followed in the past two years.

IBNA learns that this investigation has been launched on the count of traffic of explosive, combustive, poisoning and radioactive materials.

According to the Criminal Code, the import, export, transit and sale of these materials in breach of the law, carries a jail sentence from seven to 15 years.

But if this criminal offense is repeated or if it has serious consequences, it carries a jail sentence from 10 to 20 years.

As part of this investigation, in the recent hours, the Department of Customs is also investigating another lead. According to this Department, last year, 1120 containers have entered the Port of Durres with FYROM as their destination, going through the Customs of Qafe Thana. Reportedly, the containers were mainly filled with food products.

Meanwhile, according to another lead, the containers filled with wastes had set out toward FYROM, but they never made it there. Durres, Fier, Vlora, Shkodra and Dibra are the cities where the containers filled with chemical wastes coming from Italy, are suspected to have been vanished.

The reintroduction of the law on wastes and civil reactions

The first decision taken by Rama’s government when it entered office in 2013 was the abrogation of the bill on the import of wastes. Two years later, it was Rama who reintroduced the bill. He said that there is no danger for penetration of chemical wastes along with imported wastes.

However, civil society was very active against this bill, which, nonetheless, was voted by the majority in parliament. But the president didn’t sign it, returning the bill to parliament for reevaluation. The bill has been suspended for several months now. Publicist Besjan Pasha, who is also a prominent activist on such issues, is surprised by the fact that PM Rama invested so much in bringing back this bill, despite the fact that the abrogation of the bill was an electoral promise in 2013.

According to him, “our wastes are more than enough for the recycling industry in the country, helping it to create new jobs”.

Stopping on the suspicions about the 1300 containers with radioactive wastes, which are believed to have entered Albania, Pesha says that this is an alarm for the generations to come.

“Tomorrow, these wastes will penetrate into subterranean waters, ending up in agricultural plots and the food on our plates”, Pesha explains with a simple language.

Meanwhile, prominent environmentalist, Sazan Guri says that the 2014 government’s decision to allow the transit of radioactive wastes top Albania is unacceptable.

“We have plenty of wastes in the country to recycle. Now that we’re hearing of imports, then there is something suspicious”.

Guri believes that the suspicions for radioactive wastes are credible. “The same thing also happened with chemical weapons, where the media was the first one to blow the whistle”, Mr. Guri says recalling the fact that a few months after Rama came in power, the country was swept by a wave of protests against the arrival into the country of a quantity of chemical weapons, upon the request of the United States.


The leader of the opposition, Lulzim Basha says that if the news about 1300 containers of dangerous wastes which have arrived in Albania is confirmed, this is genocide against Albanians.

“It seems that we’re facing a crime of unimaginable scale. These are 1300 containers which may have entered Albania illegally, against the Constitution, against the will of the Albanian people and which act as a threat to the health and safety of Albanians in those areas where they have arrived”.

Basha demands not only a prompt investigation by the Prosecution, but to make full transparency of every step of this investigation. “This is not an ordinary crime and an ordinary affair”.

For Mr. Basha, the penetration of radioactive wastes means that the international mob of wastes has penetrated. /
