Three scenarios await Montenegro

Bogdan Zivkovic, as a guest on the RTS morning program, said that the government in Montenegro was destabilized, and everything became even more complicated. by adopting a resolution on Srebrenica.

According to him, the ideological differences between the factors of the current government have been shown.

“On the one hand, there is the DF as a Serbian national organization for which Srebrenica is a crime, but not genocide, while on the other hand, Democrats and URA are committed to the West and the EU and have a different vision of that,” Zivkovic points out.

He explains that the processes that have been seen for a long time have come to the surface, criticism of Prime Minister Zdravko Krivokapic, whose, he says, bad moves have complicated the already complicated situation.

Zivkovic notes that the DPS not only appeared in the Assembly, after the boycott, voted for the resolution, but also initiated the crisis.

“The question of Leposavic was raised from the opposition. The DPS, which was forced into the opposition, realized that asking this question could destabilize the government, because with Leposavic’s answer, the government would lose the support of the West. The Srebrenica issue is important. proves moral superiority. Srebrenica is the main mythical and symbolic place through which Serbian rights are denied, “the historian explains.

He believes that the desire of the West is to suppress the possibility for Serbs and their political representatives to be part of the government in Montenegro through such a scandal, primarily in order to, he says, suppress Russian influence.

Three scenarios for resolving the crisis

Zivkovic states that there are three scenarios for resolving the crisis.

“The first is for Krivokapic to somehow continue to survive. I think he has a chance because he existed as a kind of temporary solution. The problem with that chance is that the church seems to distance itself from him, and in Montenegro it is terribly important, and was a source of its legitimacy, “the historian points out.

The remaining two scenarios, he says, are for three political factors – DF, Democrats and URA – to agree and vote for a new government or to go to new elections.

“I am afraid that they, in this divided society, would only increase political tensions and would not be good,” Zivkovic points out, adding that the situation is not naive and that relations between the DF and Krivokapic are complex.

According to him, the possibility of an agreement between them is the possibility of stabilizing the situation.

Krivokapic, he says, is showing signs of agreement, but his rhetoric has been sharpened.

“Montenegro is a divided and fragile society, this lack of a clear and stable government only gives the opportunity for these social conflicts to manifest themselves. Strong conflicts in society are slowly spilling over into the street. If there is political stabilization, it can be expected that it will not escalate.” , notes Zivkovic.

He believes that Krivokapić is the main culprit for this situation because, he says, he has had time since August to stabilize the government.

20 years of the Council of Europe Office in Belgrade: promoting equality and diversity in Serbia

The Council of Europe’s bodies, conventions and monitoring mechanisms provide excellent support to Member States by facilitating international cooperation and the exchange of best practices in promoting equality and diversity. The Council of Europe office in Belgrade is an excellent example and can proudly look back on 20 years of dedicated work.

This was highlighted in today’s event on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Council of Europe office in Belgrade.

Nadia Ćuk, Deputy Head of the Council of Europe Office in Belgrade, welcomed the participants and emphasized the importance of the holistic approach to achieve equality: “Building a tolerant, inclusive and resilient society based on the principle of non-discrimination requires a holistic approach. In its numerous and varied cooperation programs implemented in Serbia over the past 20 years, the Council of Europe has continued to focus on promoting diversity and equality to help the country advance its reform agenda in the areas of human rights, rule of law and Democracy in line with European standards. “

Ivica Dačić, spokesman for the National Assembly of Serbia, congratulated the office on two decades of successful work. “The office of the Council of Europe in Belgrade is one of the institutions without whose support we could not have achieved the democratic development of our country. Serbia is a much better country today than it was 20 years ago. Numerous judicial and parliamentary support projects, implemented in collaboration with civil society, helped create an atmosphere of tolerance and respect for diversity, ”said the spokesman.

In the video message, Michael Roth, Minister of State for Europe in the Foreign Office and Special Representative of the Federal Government for the German Presidency in the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, emphasized that the organs of the Council of Europe, its conventions and monitoring mechanisms offer the member states excellent support by promoting international cooperation and facilitate the exchange of best practices in promoting equality and diversity. May 2021 is European Diversity Month – let’s work together to create equitable and inclusive environments. Right now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, where diversity and inclusion are at risk, ”concluded Mr Roth.

Tobias Flessenkemper, Head of the Office of the Council of Europe in Belgrade, emphasized: “The strategic goal of the Council of Europe in the area of ​​anti-discrimination, diversity and inclusion is to guarantee real equality and unrestricted access to rights and opportunities for everyone and everywhere”. to Serbia, at any time and under all circumstances, as an individual and as a member of a certain group. Our Belgrade office will continue to support the government, parliament, civil society, social and economic actors, the education sector, the media and everyone else in achieving this goal together. There can be no real European unity without human and minority rights, democracy and the rule of law. “

“20 years of work by the Council of Europe office in Belgrade will also be shaped by a coincidence that shows our commitment to the values ​​of the Council of Europe of all of us – in the small hall of the Serbian National Assembly we are celebrating this anniversary, while at the same time in the main hall of the assembly we are celebrating the anti-discrimination laws discussed ”, said Gordana Čomić, Minister for Human and Minority Rights and Social Dialogue. She also stated that “People are different and are legally required to treat people equally and to accept diversity as we all have human rights”.

In addition to the lecture “Human and Minority Rights Protection: Perspectives and Challenges to Multiple Diversity Governance in Europe and the Balkans” by Prof. Dr and Equal Rights in Serbia. Members of the Serbian National Assembly, the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality, representatives of civil society organizations and the National Council of Roma in Serbia exchanged views on how to proceed in the field of equality and diversity in Serbia.

In addition to the 20th anniversary of the office, this event also marked the end of the German presidency in the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. HEMr Thomas Schieb, Germany’s ambassador to Serbia, emphasized that non-discrimination and the fight against hate speech were among the priorities during the German presidency of the Committee of Ministers. “We chose this focus because minorities are often confronted with exclusion and discrimination because of their nationality, skin color, religion, language, gender identity, sexual orientation, social status or disability. That is not acceptable. We must work together to change that, ”he concluded.

HEMr Attila Pinter, Ambassador of Hungary to Serbia, outlined the focus of the upcoming Hungarian Presidency of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe (May-November 2021) on the topics of minorities, youth policy, cybercrime and artificial intelligence, environmental protection and dialogue between the regions.

The symposium “Promoting Equality and Diversity in Serbia: 20 years of Cooperation for multiple Diversity Governance” was organized by the Office of the Council of Europe in Belgrade in cooperation with the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights and Social Dialogue, supported by the National Assembly of Serbia and the Embassy the Federal Republic of Germany.

It highlighted Serbia’s efforts to promote equality and diversity based on the standards of the Council of Europe and sensitized Serbian authorities and civil society as well as international community partners to the governance of diversity in Europe.

She also stated that “People are different and are legally required to treat people equally and to accept diversity as we all have human rights”.

In addition to the lecture “Human and Minority Rights Protection: Perspectives and Challenges to Multiple Diversity Governance in Europe and the Balkans” by Prof. Dr and Equal Rights in Serbia. Members of the Serbian National Assembly, the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality, representatives of civil society organizations and the National Council of Roma in Serbia exchanged views on how to proceed in the field of equality and diversity in Serbia.

In addition to the 20th anniversary of the office, this event also marked the end of the German presidency in the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. HEMr Thomas Schieb, Germany’s ambassador to Serbia, emphasized that non-discrimination and the fight against hate speech were among the priorities during the German presidency of the Committee of Ministers. “We chose this focus because minorities are often confronted with exclusion and discrimination because of their nationality, skin color, religion, language, gender identity, sexual orientation, social status or disability. That is not acceptable. We must work together to change that, ”he concluded.

HEMr Attila Pinter, Ambassador of Hungary to Serbia, outlined the focus of the upcoming Hungarian Presidency of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe (May-November 2021) on the topics of minorities, youth policy, cybercrime and artificial intelligence, environmental protection and dialogue between the regions.

The symposium “Promoting Equality and Diversity in Serbia: 20 years of Cooperation for multiple Diversity Governance” was organized by the Office of the Council of Europe in Belgrade in cooperation with the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights and Social Dialogue, supported by the National Assembly of Serbia and the Embassy the Federal Republic of Germany.

It highlighted Serbia’s efforts to promote equality and diversity based on the standards of the Council of Europe and sensitized Serbian authorities and civil society as well as international community partners to the governance of diversity in Europe.

Caffeine has a protective effect against melanoma cell growth and may help reduce the growth of cells responsible for relapses, according to a study published in the journal Molecules, conducted by researchers at the Istituto Superiore di Sanita in Italy.

The study focused on identifying the mechanisms by which caffeine plays an important protective role against several types of tumors, already described in many papers in the literature, but not yet fully characterized at the molecular level.

“Using in vitro approaches, we have identified a protein that plays a fundamental role in this beneficial action of caffeine, which is the enzyme tyrosinase which, as we know, has a key function in melanin synthesis and which would perform a protective action against the effects of damage generated by UV rays and an important immunomodulatory function “, say the researchers.

“In fact, melanoma produced by human melanoma cells exposed to caffeine increased significantly,” explains Francesco Facchiano, the study’s co-ordinator.

The results of the study open up new perspectives in the field of differentiation therapy, which aims at cell differentiation to target only tumor cells, avoiding the occurrence of relapses after chemotherapy. / ANSA /

The first signs of stomach cancer

Stomach tumors are the second most common cause of cancer in the world. Eighty-five percent of them are gastric adenocarcinomas, while 15 percent are gastrointestinal lymphoma (GIST) tumors and leomisarcomas.

As with most diseases, food is the cause of this cancer. The stomach is the widest part of the digestive tract. It is located between the esophagus and the small intestine. Digestion begins in the stomach.

The disease is 1.5 – 2 times more common in men, while it appears most often after the age of 50 years. Among the foods that cause it, the most commonly mentioned are smoked and highly salted food (meat), water in which there is a lot of nitrates and keeping food at room temperature, but, of course, genes are also the cause.

Who gets stomach cancer?

The risk of developing stomach cancer increases with age: mainly people older than 55 years. Men get sick twice as often as women. Prolonged infection with the bacterium H.Pylori, which lives in the gastric mucosa is one of the primary causes of gastric cancer.

The risk of developing cancer is higher in people who have or have had a family member with the disease, along with some rare genetic disorders, which increase the risk of developing stomach cancer.

High-salt foods, which include smoked and salty foods, pre-surgical cure (stomach resection), smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption also increase the risk of stomach cancer.

It is important to recognize the symptoms and cure them in time.

Usually displayed:

– Unspecified difficulties in the upper part of the stomach

– Feeling of weight or fullness after the ration

– Croup and vomiting

– Poor digestion, burning

– Weakness and fatigue

– Bloating

– Diarrhea or constipation

– Stomach pain

– Blood in the stool.

About 25 percent of sufferers have similar difficulties to those with dehydration.

In the later stage of the disease the patients lose body weight, some may affect the mass of the tumor in the upper part of the stomach, which is an extremely bad sign, leading to cramps and vomiting or problems with swallowing. / eo

At least 3 injured & evacuation ordered after blasts rock Serbia ammunition factory for 2nd time in a MONTH (VIDEOS) — RT World News

The evacuation of parts of the Serbian city of Cacak was announced after an explosion struck and set fire to a local ammunition factory. A similar explosion caused major damage to the facility about two weeks earlier.

“Due to the explosion at the Sloboda facility, there is an urgent need to evacuate all citizens living near the factory. The location of the evacuation is the city stadium, ”said Cacak’s mayor Milun Todorović on social media on Saturday evening, ransacked the factory and reportedly spread to the nearby area.

The “Sloboda” (Freedom) plant, southwest of Cacak, was shaken by a huge explosion around 8 p.m. local time, which, according to Serbian television, was followed by another, smaller one.

Two workers and one female worker were injured in the explosion, reportedly from the broken glass, and were taken to hospital.

Footage shared on social media shows angry flame and thick smoke rising from the site.

The incident on Saturday marks the second time in less than a month that the factory has been hit by a massive explosion. On June 4, a series of explosions struck the plant and the evacuation of the surrounding houses was ordered. While the explosions lasted for several days, no one was injured in the incident. At that time, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic put the damage from the explosion at up to 2 million euros (2.4 million US dollars).

Founded in 1948, Sloboda employs more than 2,500 people and specializes in the manufacture of tank and artillery projectiles, as well as various types of anti-tank weapons with rocket propulsion. It also produces some home appliances.

The factory was paralyzed during the NATO bombing of Kosovo in 1999, but has since been rebuilt.
