Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have decidedly mixed feelings about this.

On the one hand, in principle I support the right of people to secede from a country whose government they find onerous.

On the other hand, I have a decidedly ominous feeling about revising borders on the Balkans.

On the third hand, I think that in the long run it would be rather hard to keep Kosova in Serbia.

On the fourth hand, I think that the Union has been entirely too high-handed in this matter. If the Serbs and Russians are angry about this - well, it's hard to blame them.
