He believes that both sides do not have the ability to wage war.
Military expert Oleg Zhdanov believes that the unrest in Kosovo could have been due to a misunderstanding on both sides.
He expressed this opinion in his Telegram channel.
“The whole situation between Serbia and Kosovo is more like a misperception by the parties of each other’s intentions than a third party, such as Russia, could take advantage of. This does not look like an open desire to confront either side,” the expert believes.
Zhdanov recalled that the governments of Kosovo and Serbia have long lived in conditions of distrust and perceive each other as hostile.
The expert believes that both sides now do not have the ability to wage war.
“Serbia and Kosovo imposed various mirror restrictions on each other, which resulted in a conflict situation with raising the stakes. Serbia does not have the strength to capture Kosovo, NATO peacekeeping troops are stationed there, and no one wants a repeat of 1999 in Serbia, and Kosovo, no longer has the strength to attack Serbia and achieve something by military means,” he concluded.
As UNIAN reported, on July 31 clashes broke out in northern Kosovo due to changes in traffic rules.
After that, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that the Kosovo army allegedly going to attack the Serbs In the north of the country.
