Russia Stirs the Hornet’s Nest
Russia Stirs the Hornet’s Nest -
  • Forecast of the Balkan region:

    • Russia will keep trying to exploit divisions in the western Balkans, traditionally a theater of competition for many world powers.
    • Russian influence will continue to spread in some of the Balkans’ most turbulent areas, including Serbia, northern Kosovo, Montenegro and Macedonia.
    • By stoking tensions in the region, Moscow could engineer a series of crises too challenging for the West to contain.
