Anti-government protests in Montenegro, Serbia and Albania inspire a ‘Balkan Spring’

Read Time:1 Minute, 16 Second

“It all started with a video posted on social media: a secret recording from 2016 that appears to show a well-known local tycoon and an envelope of cash for a party associate of the old leader of Montenegro. The prominent businessman, a former close friend and confidant of Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic, released the video late last year in retaliation for fraud and money laundering charges that prompted him to flee to London to avoid prosecution”.

This is how “The Independent” starts the news about the protests that have invaded the Balkan region, Albania, Montenegro and Serbia.

Under the title “Anti-government protests in Montenegro, Serbia and Albania inspire hopes for a “Balkan Spring”, the British newspaper also reflects the protests in our country, while also mentioning the demands of the opposition: resignation of the government and early elections.

“Albanian opposition parties have returned to the streets since mid-February to demand the resignation of the government and early elections. There, the center-right opposition accuses the left-wing Socialist Party government and Prime Minister Edi Rama of corruption and ties to organized crime.

Supporters of the opposition attempted to attack the Parliament building in Tirana and the police used tear gas and water cannons to repel them,” writes “The Independent”.

Regarding the similarity with the protests in Albania, Serbia and Montenegro, the prestigious British newspaper writes:

“The common characteristic of the protests is that, people are tired of the long and corrupt regimes, accumulated for years, and why not for decades”.
