  1. Excerpt from Presidential Daily Briefing, May 20th, 2021 State Dept. INR partially dissents on conclusions Analysts at the CIA, DIA, and NSA have concluded that at least a faction of the Serbian government is likely conducting hybrid warfare against Kosovo. Recent incidents along the Kosovan-Serbian border have suddenly become violent in at least four instances, including the murder of five Kosovan soldiers, the theft of Kosovan military equipment, and the engagement of US Marines in the region with gunfire. The group, identified as the Serbian Liberation of Kosovo Group, appears to be a fringe paramilitary group originating in Serbia but has at least some connections in Kosovo, particularly in the ethnic Serbian minority regions along the border. The group does have at least some backing from members of the Serbian government and military, demonstrated by their skirmish with US forces in the area during a training exercise. At least part of the group that opened fire on the Marines was able to escape via helicopter over the border, which did not appear to be challenged by Serbian border guards or the military. However, a credible source within the Serbian Ministry of Defense reported confusion regarding that incident amongst officials, with numerous commanders stationed along the border reportedly calling in attempting to figure out what was happening. NSA was able to confirm a spike in communication activity between the forward-deployed Serbian units and Belgrade. It is still the assessment of all agencies that Serbia is not in a position at this time to engage in a direct conflict, but there is a possibility that the SLKG is a stopgap measure to keep Kosovan forces off balance while the conventional forces prepare. Build up of Serbian forces along the Kosovan border DIA estimates that Serbia requires at least another three months to reach combat readiness and will likely display several indicators prior to any direct action. NSA and CIA concur. State Dept. INR dissents on the timeline, as no movement has been made through any of Serbia’s diplomatic missions to offset any controversial actions.
  2. Transcript and analysis of Kosovan Ministry of Internal Affairs interrogation of subject detained near the Serbian border: Interviewer (I): Do you understand these rights as they have been provided to you? Prisoner (P): Yes, just ask your damn questions. I: Very well, what is your name? P: Ivan Kosančić. I: You were captured at the site of several murders of Kosovan soldiers amongst several unidentified militants. Would you care you elaborate as to your role in these murders and why you did this? P: You roaches never ask the real question first. I: And that would be? [Silence for 30 seconds, the Prisoner continues smoking] P: You really want to know who we were working for. They’re Serbian, but it sure isn’t those pussies in Belgrade. I: So then who? P: The Serbian Liberation of Kosovo Group. We are working to free the Serbian people of this land from your slow genocide of our people and culture. I: And how does killing five Kosovan soldiers achieve that? P: For starters, it was a blow against your attempts to deny our lands the true autonomy we deserve. And it secured vital supplies for the movement. I: So you intend to fight an insurgency? P: Of course, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it! I: You seem certain about that. P: Obviously, do you think I’d be talking if I thought you could do anything about it? I: … P: We’re going to do what those cowards can’t man up and do. We’ll make you Shiptars run back to that hellhole you call a country in the South. We’re going to be waiting in every shadow until you realize whose lands these really belong to. [The Prisoner stands up and begins shouting] The Serbian government may be willing to tolerate your boot on our brothers and sisters, but the real Serbian people won’t! We’re going to burn you out like the infection you are! We’re gonna see how many dead sons you’re willing to suffer before you flee! [Security officers enter the room and restrain the Prisoner] P: I hope you fight, so my comrades can make you scum bleed like the pigs you are! You’ll see us soon enough! Analysis: The subject appears to be a firm believer in Serbian ethnonationalism. There is reason to believe the subject is part of a group intending to incite an insurgency along the border with Serbia. The subject appeared to hold negative views of the Serbian government, despite espousing much of the same ideology of the current ruling party. No proper identification of the subject could be determined as the name he gave appears to be a reference to a famous Serbian knight from the 1300s. The subject has refused further interviews, stating "he had said what we needed to hear". Most of the equipment he and the others at the scene appears to be civilian or black market in origin, lending credence to the theory that they are acting independently of Belgrade. However, there is reason to believe they have at least some support from members of the Serbian government, as the helicopter seen escaping from the area did not appear to be intercepted by the Serbian border guards or military. Recommend an increase in police and military presence near the border to deter or interdict further cross-border activity and search for members of this so-called "SLKG".
  3. //SECRET//JSOC//MARSOC From: [email protected] <Clark Williams> To: [email protected] <Sean Whelan> Subject: Notice of Deployment All Commands and Attachments are hereby notified that Alpha Company, 3d MRB; Alpha Section, 160th SOAR, and all supporting detachments are to prepare for immediate deployment to the country of Kosovo for a joint training exercise with local forces. All commands are to ensure OPSEC through rank and file. Deployment for all commands is required no later than May 17th, and exercises shall begin no later than May 19th. Briefing as follows. Due to the ongoing tensions between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia, the Kosovan government has requested that US forces provide training on how to counter special forces. It is the belief of JSOC that the presence of elements of the US military will provide a stabilizing factor in the ongoing crisis. Current intel does not suggest that Serbia is prepared for combat operations and is unlikely to engage in direct conflict within the coming months. At this time, we cannot dismiss the chance of provocations from the Serbian side, however, all US forces are not allowed to use live rounds unless fired upon. All US forces are to ensure that they do not escalate the situation under any circumstances without orders from higher. Given the previous direct action experience with the Russian Spetsnaz tactics Serbian special forces are trained on, Alpha Company, 3d MRB will utilize that previous experience to train with the Kosovan 3rd Battalion near the border. The Kosovan government has notified locals of the ongoing training and will ensure that the exercise areas are clear of civilians. Signed, Lieutenant Colonel C.

  4. New Serbian Government Takes Hardline Stance In Negotiations ADA News March 1st, 2021  Negotiations between Serbia and Kosovo regarding mineral rights and ostensibly Kosovan sovereignty appear to have stalled after years of slow process over the past three years. Some more observers have even offered more pessimistic assessments and claimed that the talks had collapsed completely and were unlikely to restart anytime soon. Most blame the new lead negotiator on the Serbian side for the current stalemate and the statements by the new Serbian government. Negotiations reportedly became heated over the matter of allowing Serbian police to operate in Kosovo. The Serbian United People’s Party (SUNS) only came into power two months ago, riding a wave of national anger over economic stagnation and a massive corruption scandal with the previous government of Prime Minister Stefan Sunkić and the then-ruling Serbian Liberal Party (SLS). A largely sidelined party since its founding four years ago, the ultranationalist party found its footing when it led the charge calling for investigations into allegations of money laundering from government projects to members of the SLS. While originally dismissed by most, their accusations turned out to be true, which were then coupled with over five years of economic downturn led to mass resignations and snap elections being called. The SUNS won these in a landslide, with several attributing their appeal to many Serbs with their claims that Kosovo and Montenegro are rightfully Serbian territories. Since 2005, in an attempt to secure more international support and investment in the country, most Serbian parties dropped controversial stances on the territories, despite it remaining popular amongst the general population. Some newly elected members of SUNS have gone even further, with Darko Lajsić, a close associate of the new Prime Minister Radič Pucarević, stating “We lost our lands with the interference of NATO and European ‘humanists’ who would rather see a world without of Serbs than let us have an inch of our homeland”.

  5. Montenegro Begins Membership Action Program With NATO Grand Central Times January 10th, 2021 The chances for Montenegro to become part of the European Idea increased today due to NATO begining negotiations for the country’s Membership Action Program. While there are still hurdles to Montenegro’s ascension into the security alliance, the most concerning issue is the ethnic divide that still sparks tension in the small Balkan nation. A significant portion of the population in the northern end of the country are ethinically Serbian, with some having a strong nationalism towards Serbia itself. Despite past incidents involving Serbian nationalists, the lack of a popular seccesionist movement has not raised concerns with the Montenegrin government. President Enian Demisovski has conducted several reforms that have encouraged national unity, with polls having shown support for his governments initiatives by most Montenegrins, including ethnic Serbs. With growing ethnic stability in the country, some speculate that this is the reason behind NATO's decision to move forward with the country's application. Montenegrin and British soldiers after last year's joint exercise with NATO.  With Montenegro becoming independent in 2006, the small nation declared it's own identity and has been on the path of becoming a stable country of the region. It's neighbour, Serbia, is still reeling from Montenegros independence, something that has only grown more pronouced since the ultranationalist Serbian United People's Party (SUNS) came into power last year following the collapse of the previous government. A key platform of the party has been to claim that Serbia was robbed of it's economic potential by NATO and the EU due to their support of Montenegro's and Kosovo's independence. This harsh claim has done little to win over support from the majority of Serbs residing in the two small Balkan nations, many of which are enjoying the prospects of the two countries growing economies, while Serbia struggles to stablize theirs.

  11. Malian Prime Minister Visits Crisis-Stricken Region Grand Central Times - Sept 17th, 2020 Prime Minister Famory Kouyaté made a visit to the Kidal Region today as the country watches the growing military crisis with bated breath. It appears that the Prime Minister is going on a tour through the Northern half of the country in an attempt to allay fears of a coup or civil war. Few expect the crisis to escalate that far, especially since the mutineering soldiers have remained peaceful throughout this emergency. However, there are questions about the government’s credibility during this crisis. Pictured: Malian troops standing guard outside mutineers' base. Some have accused the President of overreacting to the situation and causing unnecessary panic and allowed for the ongoing crisis in the city of Kidal to occur. Boko Haram's ongoing attacks in the city have reportedly claimed numerous lives, and thrown the area into chaos. There are reports of fighting in the streets and it is suspected that American and French forces have been taking part in the battles raging across the city. Of particular note was the report of a helicopter being destroyed at the local governor's compound after a pitched battle took place there. Pictured: Governor's compound post-battle. Smoke is claimed to be from a downed helicopter. In an apparent attempt to reassure the public that the situation is being handled, the Prime Minister was seen meeting with the local governor, Issiaka Dabo, in a hospital where he is claimed to be in good health. After the meeting, Mr. Kouyaté assured the press that the crisis would soon pass, and stated that the mutineer crisis will soon be resolved and the Boko Haram threat dealt with. Some have questioned if this will be possible, even with American and French support. By Geordi La Forge Grand Central Times

  14. Mutiny Strikes Malian Army ADA News - Sept. 10th, 2020 After three months of negotiations between the soldiers of the 56th Infantry Regiment and the government that failed to resolve the dispute over the unit being stood down due to budget cuts, the soldiers mutinied and have taken over their base in Sévaré. While the troops have not conducted any violent acts, Malian President Birama Kondo has declared that the mutiny is an act of open rebellion. In a statement to the Associated Press, Mr. Kondo said that the mutineers were “merely coup plotters who have yet to act against the capital.” He continued, stating that as a preemptive measure to prevent “further seditious acts”, all Malian military personnel in the Northern half of the country are being confined to barracks for the foreseeable future. Pictured: Malian President Kondo at a rally outside of the capital city of Bamako shortly after the mutiny. Some have questioned this decision while the region is facing sustained security threats from terrorist groups and unstable neighbors. A spokesperson for the Malian Army dismissed those claims, saying that the remaining Malian forces were more than capable of dealing with any additional threats while the crisis is resolved.
