Montenegro has understood the causal link between NATO and EU integration. They understood that NATO integration are a condition for EU integration. Why? Because NATO means to chose the road, and to guarantee security and political safety on that road, while membership in EU is just a journey that could last for quite a long time, said Vuk Drašković, leader of Serbian Movement for Renewal, in his interview to Pobjeda.

“Serbia officially aims to join EU, while being against joining NATO. In Montenegro, fortunately, there is no such confusion. Montenegro has understood the causal link between NATO and EU integration. They understood that NATO integration are a condition for EU integration. Why? Because NATO means to chose the road, and to guarantee security and political safety on that road, while membership in EU is just a journey that could last for quite a long time. This causal link is apparent in Serbia as well. As the number of those who are firmly against NATO rises, the number of those who are in favor of EU integration decreases”, Drašković said.

He explains the strengthening of the right in Serbia.

“Left and right is turned around in today’s Serbia, and often they are the same. The main rift between parties and citizens is: Europe or Russia. Those who prefer Russia, declare Europe and USA to be national enemies, and they consider themselves to be on the right. For them however, Russia is only “the motherland” if it is in hostility with Europe and USA. Russia that denies the democratic system of the West, Western science, culture, lifestyle. Russia from Stalin’s times. These are not people on the right, they are neo-bolsheviks, in accordance with anti-Western Serbian Orthodox Church. Similar chaos reigns on the Europe side of Serbia as well. They do want to join EU, but not NATO, they condemn Milošević’s war and other crimes, but they are against opening secret files on those crimes”, Drašković said.
