DISINFO: US trying to provoke Serbia into a military operation
The Atlanticists, more precisely the employees of the US embassy in Pristina, are trying to provoke Serbia into military operations to protect the Serbian population of Kosovo, and to force Russia to intervene in the conflict on the side of the Serbs.
A new narrative specific on the Kosovo situation using a classic Kremlin trope: US causing conflict and war.
This anti-Western disinformation advances the narrative that the US is provoking conflict in the Western Balkans and forcing Russia to intervene. No evidence is provided that the recent heightened tensions between Kosovo and Serbia are being provoked by the US embassy in Kosovo.
The spark that ignited recent tension between Kosovo and Serbia in 2022 was that Kosovo's government wanted those who live in Serb areas to change their Serbian-issued car number plates for Kosovan-issued ones. About 50,000 people refused to change their car number plates and it increased tension between the Serbian and Kosovo government. Under the facilitation of the EU, Serbia and Kosovo agreed on measures to avoid further escalation.
The United States welcomed the agreements reached between Kosovo and Serbia to avoid further escalation.
Russian state outlets, like this Sputnik platform try to talk up the crisis in Kosovo.
