It has just happened. Yesterday Parliament of Kosovo proclaimed independence. It seems there has not been any good solution to Kosovo question, but I sincerely regret Serbs.
With regard to this situation some question arise:
1. May demography be the most important and decisive argument for independence?
2. May the Right of the Nations to the self determination based on demography ignore other equally and maybe even more important arguments like culture, history, politics?
Kosovo was in fact the cradle of Serbian statehood, there are thousands of Orthodox churches and monasteries. I must confess that I understand Serbian anger and disappointment.
On the other hand – has there been any better solution? Never ending protection of the United Nations and international administration? It seemed to be makeshift and malfunctioning legal construction. Staying in Serbian borders? It would result in further fights.
Tragic choice. And what is going to be now? What about Abkhazia? What about Southern Osetia?
