Donald Trump apologized for America in a Serbian magazine, saying it was a mistake to bomb Serbia during Bill Clinton’s presidency.
Damien Sharkov writing in Newsweek reported:
“The bombing of Serbs, who were our allies in both world wars, was a big mistake,” Trump told the Serbian weekly magazine Nedeljnik for an article published on its website Thursday. “Serbians are very good people. Unfortunately, the Clinton administration caused them a lot of harm, but also throughout the Balkans, which they made a mess out of.”
A Reuters advanced copy of a report released on Thursday shows “Moscow had co-opted sympathetic politicians, strived to dominate energy markets and other economic sectors, and undermined anti-corruption measures in an attempt to gain sway over governments in Bulgaria, Hungary, Latvia, Serbia, and Slovakia.”
According to a U.S. official who requested anonymity, Moscow is engaged in activities designed to “recapture what Putin considers their rightful buffer in Eastern Europe, and to undermine not just NATO and the EU, but the entire democratic foundation of both institutions.”
“Those activities, he said, include bribery, propaganda, disinformation, ‘the occasional’ assassination of Kremlin critics at home or abroad, and now using the internet to undermine opponents and weaken Western institutions.”
Just Friday the U.S. formally accused Russia of hacking the DNC emails.
