Un petit thread Dragan Čović, élections, sécession des ethno-nationalistes croates ? Moi je dis OUI !
Je vous ai souvent parlé de la réforme électorale que Čović veut imposer en BiH, basée sur le concept de représentation légitime des peuples constituants de BiH. C'est 1 notion inventée par Č, elle n'est nulle part dans la Constitutions.
Pour rappelle, les présidents bosniaques, croates et serbes sont ISSUS de ces communautés, ils ne les représentent pas. Donc le daydreaming de Č de devenir le Guide Suprême des Croates à vie ne s'appuie sur rien, aucun texte, aucune loi.

At today’s European Council #EUCO, Zagreb racked up another success in pushing its aggressive agenda for #Bosnia and Herzegovina. Based on the information presently available, the following reference to #BiH will appear in the Conclusions:
“The European Council discussed the prolonged political crisis in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The European Union reiterates its commitment to the European perspective of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Western Balkans…
Leaders in Bosnia and Herzegovina need to demonstrate a strong commitment to finalise swiftly the constitutional and electoral reform vital for stability and full functionality of the country, …

Bosnie-Herzégovine, un petit point sur la question. Cette semaine c'était un grand festival du côté des ethno-nationalistes croates de tout poil, ceux de BiH et ceux de Croatie, l'union fait la force, on n'a pas été déçus. 1/n
Depuis des mois maintenant je vous parle de la réforme électorale voulue par Čović qui a dit qu'il bloquerait les élections d'octobre 2022 s'il ne l'obtenait pas. IL en a le pouvoir en tant que vice-pdt de la Chambre des Peuples 2/n
Dom Naroda garantit l'équité entre les peuples constitutifs et les entités. Si les "intérêts vitaux nationaux" (et oui, le vocabulaire fait flipper ici je suis d'accord) ne sont pas respectés, les lois sont refoulées 3/n

🇧🇦 Heute vor 1 Jahr brannte das Lager Lipa in #BiH nieder; tausende Menschen waren den eisigen Temperaturen schutzlos ausgeliefert.
Aber die Geschichte endete nicht mit dem Feuer. Wie hat sich die Lage von PoM verändert?

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
.
.
.
.
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Peter #Handke, austrijski književnik i dobitnik Nobelove nagrade za književnost, koji negira #genocid u Srebrenici, dolazi sutra u posjetu bh entitetu Republici Srpskoj, gdje će ga ugostiti Predsjedavajući Predsjedništva #BiH Milorad #Dodik. slobodnaevropa.org/a/handke-nobel…
Podsećamo na video iz decembra 2019. kada su novinari koji su izveštavali iz rata u Bosni i Hercegovini digli glas protiv Nobelove nagrade za Petera Handkea na Twitteru uz hashtag #BosniaWarJournalists
bit.ly/3xP1ke9 #IzRSEArhive
Zbog podrške međunarodno izolovanoj Srbiji, posete Slobodanu Miloševiću u pritvorskoj jedinici Haškog tribunala, te odlaska na njegovu sahranu – Handke je uglavnom bio kritikovan, pa i ozloglašen u međunarodnoj javnosti, kao skoro nijedan pisac do tada. bit.ly/2PVvcV7

To this date no one in four #WesternBalkan countries recieved a #CovidVaccine:

#BiH🇧🇦, #Kosovo🇽🇰, #Montenegro🇲🇪 & #NorthMacedonia🇲🇰

Many rightfully ask why

In #BiH, for example, authorities relied on #COVAX, #EU🇪🇺 procurement mechanism patience of citizens (?!)👇🏼
Following an agreement of BiH governments in charge for health matters by November 2020 state level authorities (kind of) finalised paperwork to be able to order 1,232,000 dosis of vaccines via #COVAX + 892.000 dosis via an #EU procurement mechanism.

balkaneu.com/bih-finalizes-…
Already in December 2020 authorities in #BiH made it clear they had no plans to try to negotiate, lobby & get vaccines via direct purchase. They defended their decision by claiming it is safer & cheaper (+legal) to wait & hoped citizens would be patient.

I recently submitted my PhD dissertation titled "Illiberalism Beyond Borders. Dissecting Russian and Turkish External Influence in Bosnia and Georgia" at @FU_Berlin. Interested in what I found? Read this thread ⬇️
To begin with, I hypothesise that illiberal external influence (IEX) is more likely to contribute to the contestation of #democracy in a given polity when it appears in the context of a favorable domestic environment and the absence of liberal external counterpressure.
I particularly scrutinise the role of domestic elites in facilitating/obstructing IEX, based on findings by J. Tolstrup, @otansey, R. Vanderhill et al. I also look at how liberal ext. counterpressure can help prevent a major contribution of IEX to the contestation of #democracy.

#BiH’s PM Zvizdić hosted by Chancellor Markel in Berlin w the highest diplomatic protocol; Merkel adds “there will be no border changes in the Balkans”. An important signal to Dodik & Vucic. But GER must prepare for more than symbolism in the region. klix.ba/clanak/1808130…
Specifically, Dodik has given ample grounds to every international backer of the Dayton Accords to sanction him (& his party) since the US Treasury Dept did so in 2017. That no other state had done so is telling & only emboldening him.
Also good to see Berlin finally, explicitly mentioning NATO membership as imperative for BiH. If GER & other EU states had pushed harder on this issue, Dodik & the HDZ wouldn’t have the capacity to endanger BiH’s sovereignty as they do at present. ba.n1info.com/a278967/Englis…

Bosnian media claim former FSB director Nikolai Pattushev met w HDZ officials from #Croatia & #Bosnia in Trogir resort to coordinate strategies for interfering in BiH elxns, ensuring @Dragan_Covic’s victory & solidifying RUS influence in both states. zurnal.info/novost/21260/p…
If @zurnal_info has the docs & sources to back this up, it’d be the clearest link yet between the hard-right of the HDZ in #Bosnia & #Croatia & the Kremlin. Their on RUS in BiH reporting so far has been excellent, recall this scoop: theguardian.com/world/2018/feb…
I note also that this story meshes very closely w the approach Russia took in #Montenegro in the 2016 coup attempt, as detailed in this thorough report by @ReufBajrovic, @VeskoGarcevic & R. Kraemer for @FPRI.

This deserves much more attention. #Russia’s attempted 2016 coup in #Montenegro was far more serious & sophisticated than previously understood. @CrisLeeMaza summarizes here the key findings of new report by @ReufBajrovic, @VeskoGarcevic & Richard Kraemer. newsweek.com/exclusive-russ…
Reason why this is such a major story is bc @ReufBajrovic & @suljagicemir1, in this report from March, warn of *upcoming* Russian inference in the Bosnian elxns. BiH is far more vulnerable & volatile than Montenegro was in 2016. Are EU, US, NATO prepared? fpri.org/article/2018/0…
Some of us have been warning about Russia’s very serious meddling in Bosnia for yrs now. I warned explicitly *last Sept* that we were headed for Kremlin-backed trouble in Oct of this yr. Too little has been done by the international community to prepare. foreignaffairs.com/articles/bosni…

Another major arms acquisition by politically controlled police in #Bosnia, months ahead of Oct elxns. HDZ controlled police in the Livno canton (aka Canton 10) appear to have acquired nearly 1000 "automatic rifles". Follows similar moves by Dodik govt. inforadar.ba/inforadar-sazn…
Police in the nearby the Herzegovina-Neretva canton, also controlled by the HDZ, announced in March they were likewise procuring $200,000 of new arms. Weeks later, they caused a near shooting incident w state police. reuters.com/article/us-eur…
So, the HDZ & SNSD have each made major arms acquisitions in last few months, both have direct ties to the Kremlin & both have explicitly threatened violence unless the Oct elxns go their way. Myself & other colleagues have warned of this for months, publicly & privately:
