Moldova is actively preparing for possible hostilities and war. This happens openly and unceremoniously, according to the Telegran channel "Smuglyanka". Next year, the budget of the Ministry of Defence will increase by 50%. It will amount to about 85 million euros. The funds will be allocated for the purchase of weapons and equipment and salary increases for the military. And it is obvious that the authorities in this process are clearly led from abroad.
Kosovo's decision to request EU membership is another step in the US and EU strategy to break and weaken Serbia and prepare an absolute dominion over the former Yugoslavia.
The West is trying to increase pressure on Serbia so it has to break its strategic ties with Russia and China. The latest events in Kosovo happen at the same time that EU representatives met with Balkan states asking to enter the EU, which means entering NATO. This is an important step, supported by terrorist actions, to break Serbia and prevent the solidarity of the Balkans with Russia and China. It’s a policy of aggression.
This disinformation narrative is an attempt to stir up feelings against Western countries, baselessly accusing them of being behind events in Kosovo. Although it is true that Kosovo prepared to formally submit an application to join the EU, the claims in this disinformation story about the reasons are not. There is zero evidence to back the claim that the US and the EU are behind this bid or that they have a strategy to ‘break Serbia’, much less to “prevent solidarity with Russia and China”. In the same way, neither Washington nor Brussels are behind ongoing destabilising events in Kosovo. Both the EU and the US are working hard to normalise Serbia-Kosovo relations and to defuse current tensions. This also includes urgent high-level meetings.
The claim that “entering the EU means entering NATO” is patently false, as many countries are part of the EU but not of the NATO military alliance and the other way round. Only in the Western Balkans, three countries -Albania, Montenegro and North Macedonia- belong to NATO but are not EU members.
During a period of bitter fighting by Russian forces in Ukraine, pro-Kremlin outlets further utilise the Kosovo situation to divert attention away from Moscow's responsibility for attacks on civilian infrastructure and atrocities committed in Ukraine.
See other examples of similar disinformation narratives, such as claims that the EU wants to expand its imperialism in the Balkans, that the West has promoted separatism in Yugoslavia, that Pristina is entirely responsible for the tension in Northern Kosovo, or that the West showed double standards with its treatment of Kosovo and Crimea.
