“After elections on Sunday, the bombastic pro-Kremlin nationalist Milorad Dodik has claimed the Serb seat in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s tripartite presidency. The fiery Dodik has regularly mused about independence for Republika Srpska, Bosnia’s Serb-dominated statelet. His apparent commitment to that cause is worrying; independence would most likely usher in the collapse of Bosnia, and it could spur the country and the wider region into the biggest conflict there since the bloody wars of the 1990s. Also alarming is the fact that Russia is Dodik’s main international backer in the region. Russian President Vladimir Putin, it seems, could be egging Dodik on in an attempt to foment unrest on Europe’s borders.” (Foreign Policy)
