Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Serbia's politicians aren't interested in joining the EU; they don't want to be just another banana republic in Germany's sphere of influence.

So they'd rather be a banana republic in Russia's sphere?  Doesn't that statement contradict the point you were trying to make (about independence from "backyard policy")? Seriously, what IS the third option?
