(MOSCOW) #Coronavirus Report: Russia exported more than $300 million worth of vaccines in the first five months of the year, customs data shows — more than the entire value of vaccines sold in the previous three years combined #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Aug.05: The increase was driven by foreign sales of Russia’s flagship Sputnik V anti-coronavirus vaccine, with millions of doses shipped overseas to customers including Argentina, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Hungary and Serbia.

#CoronavirusNewsDesk says Russia Has Earned $300-Million on Vaccine Exports So Far, with Sputnik V to Argentina, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Hungary & Serbia …….

The figure also includes sales of non-coronavirus vaccines — mainly shots against yellow fever and flu. But the Trade Ministry told the RBC business site that the large jump in sales was mainly due to Sputnik V exports. 

Russia has not revealed specific details on how much money it has made, or expects to make, from selling Sputnik V around the world.

In the whole of 2019, Russia exported $60 million of vaccines — a figure which grew in 2020 to $70 million. 

In the first five months of 2021, Moscow’s vaccine exports surged to a total of $304 million, according to customs data analyzed by RBC. That compares to just $10 million during the same period of 2020.

But amid production delays and numerous delivery issues among key Sputnik V customers, Russia’s growth in vaccine exports significantly lags the increases in sales registered by other countries exporting coronavirus shots: https://datawrapper.dwcdn.net/1d4UU/1/

China increased its vaccine exports almost 100-fold during the first five months of 2021 — selling $1.8 billion worth compared to just $19 million in the same period last year. While the European Union has sold $6.4 billion in vaccines outside the bloc, up from $4.3 billion, and the U.S. also exported more than $1.5 billion.

Russia is hoping a successful Sputnik V export drive could help the country break into the lucrative medical exports market, providing both a new income stream for coronavirus vaccines, and also opening the door for Russia to sell other pharmaceutical products around the world.

(AUSTRIA) Terror Alert Report: Because when the authorities stopped a smuggler on a bus that was on its way to to their country with 17 immigrants, the Serbian-Austrian driver stated that a Syrian was traveling with a submachine gun in his luggage #AceNewsDesk report

#AceDailyNews says a Syrian refugee migrant had machine gun in his luggage, he is now on the run and could be planning an attack after being found with a submachine gun in his luggage,” translated from “The entry of illegals to Austria continues unchecked despite allegedly improved border protection” Plante er ein Attentat? ‘Geflüchteter’ Syrer hat Maschinenpistole im Gepäck,” Unzensuriert, July 31, 2021 (thanks to Medforth):

Terror alert on the eastern border: However, there was no trace of the “refugee.” When the van was stopped by the Hungarian police, the strangers hiding in the hold jumped out and fled in all directions. Whether the man with the gun is trying to cross a green border into Austria can only be speculated. Everything is possible because the smuggler bus was stopped just a few kilometers from the eastern border in the Hungarian district of Vas….

Above all in the west of the Mödling district in Lower Austria, there have been numerous attacks by smugglers and immigrants in recent months – mostly along the A21, as the Mödling FPÖ district party chairman Christoph Luisser told Unzensuriert: The reason for his statement at the time was an accident in a smuggler car in Achau, Mödling district, which hit another car. Then the Hungarian driver ran away. Six Syrians who were on board the car immediately applied for asylum.

Trafficker flees into the forest

Last Thursday, another case in Lower Austria became known. According to the Kronen Zeitung newspaper, there was an attack by the police in Eichkogel after a smuggler dropped off 16 “refugees.” The trafficker jumped out of the vehicle and ran away – nor did he stop when the police fired warning shots. The man was hiding in the forest and is still on the run.

BUDAPEST: #Update ‘ Parliament expected to vote on Sept.22 to use army to protect border with Serbia ‘

#AceNewsReport – Sept.10: The Hungarian parliament is expected to vote September 22 on a ruling party proposal to use the army to help police protect the country’s border with Serbia, Reuters reported, citing a senior Hungarian ruling Fidesz party lawmaker.

Gergely Gulyas also said that there was no point in talking about migrant quotas until mass immigration was stopped. Hungary’s planned new transit zones near the Serbian border will be closed off from the rest of Hungary, the lawmaker said Wednesday, adding that migrants whose asylum requests are rejected will be returned to Serbia.

Budapest is resisting EU pressure to accept mandatory quotas to redistribute some of the hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees.

‘ Bosnian Serbs Erect Monument to Gavrilo Pricip Who Killed Nationalist Archduke Franz Ferdinand ‘

#AceNewsServcies – BOSNIA/SERBIA – June 27 – Bosnian Serbs erected a monument to Gavrilo Princip on Friday, a nationalist who shot and killed Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand, a move that set in motion World War I.

On Saturday, Sarajevo will mark 100 years since the assassination.

The bronze monument by Zoran Kuzmanovich, an architect from Belgrade, is two meters high and stands in the East Sarajevo district, RIA Novosti reported. The territory belongs to Republika Srpska, or the Bosnian Serb Republic.

` Iran’s Red Crescent Society Dispatches Consignment of Humanitarian Assistance to Balkan States ‘

AceWorldNews – BALKAN STATES – (Tasnim) – June 01 – Iran’s Red Crescent Society (IRCS) dispatched a consignment of humanitarian assistance to Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, the two Balkan states stricken by the worst flooding they have seen in 120 years.

Deputy head of IRCS for the international and humanitarian affairs said on Saturday that the shipment of humanitarian aid included household items, foodstuff, and emergency shelters.

The Iranian Red Crescent was among the first organizations to dispatch relief aid to the Balkans after the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies called on the world nations to help the flood-hit people in east Europe, Shahabeddin Mohammadi Araqi explained.

More than 50 people were killed by flooding and landslides in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia after the heaviest rainfall in more than a century caused rivers to burst their banks, sweeping away roads, bridges and homes.

Serbia and Bosnia were worst hit and say the damage inflicted runs to hundreds of millions of euros each, a huge blow to their cash-strapped economies.

` Having Seen Decades of War and Violence Omer Karaberg Knows the Power of Words’

#AceGuestNews – May 10 – (RFERL) – Having seen decades of war and violence, Omer Karabeg knows the transformative power of words.    For 20 years, through his program “The Bridge,” he has sought to forge a dialogue among representatives of the former Yugoslavia’s different political, ethnic, and religious groups, whose views on his carefully chosen, contentious topics often could not be more at odds.

Karabeg’s guests run the gamut from hard-line politicians to political moderates to academics and cultural figures. While his pairings are often daring, he always insists on a civil discussion and mutual respect, qualities that are scarce in the region’s mainstream media.

Arbana Vidishiqi, RFE/RL’s Kosovo Bureau Chief, remembered how in 2002, with the wounds of the Kosovo war still raw, Karabeg gathered influential Kosovo Albanians and Serbs in a face-to-face round-table discussion in Pristina.

“That was so rare at that time, just after the war, to see those two sides talking,” said Vidishiqi. “What was especially interesting was to see these former [Albanian] guerilla fighters talking with Serbs even during the breaks.”   Over the course of two decades, “The Bridge” has broadcast more than 800 such dialogues involving more than 1,500 participants.

The 30-minute weekly program began as a radio show and is now also recorded as a Skype broadcast for on-line audiences. On many occasions, the show has broken barriers between figures across political and ethnic divides who have then continued their dialogue in follow-up meetings off the air. Excerpts and quotes from the dialogues are regularly reprinted in high-circulation national newspapers throughout the region.

Much has changed since the first broadcast of “The Bridge” in April 1994 which, at the height of the Yugoslav war, focused on how to start the process of reconciliation between the Serb minority and the Croatian majority in Croatia. At that time, much of the former Yugoslavia was separated not only by ideology, but by violence, blocked roads, and broken telephone lines.

But Karabeg says some divides persist. “The most difficult combination to have on the show is nationalists, of course,” he said. “Nationalists don’t like discussion, they like monologues. They usually don’t change their minds after the show, but at least they talk; at least it gives them something to think about later.”

Originally from Bosnia-Herzegovina Karabeg is a veteran journalist who, before joining RFE/RL in 1994 in the early days of the Balkan Service (then known as the South Slavic Service), was a popular prime-time national TV news anchor in Belgrade.

He left Belgrade after refusing to broadcast nationalist propaganda during the war, an act of defiance for which he was called a traitor on national TV by government officials.   Karabeg is the winner of the 2010 Erhard Busek South East Europe Media Award for Better Understanding in South East Europe.

He received the Independent Journalists’ Association of Serbia’s Jug Grizelj Award for promoting friendship and overcoming barriers between the people in the region. He has published selected dialogues from “The Bridge” in two books: “Bridge of Dialogue: Conversations Despite the War,” and “Dialogue on the Powder Keg, Serbian-Albanian Dialogue.”

While Karabeg has seen much progress in the region, he says the deepest rifts remain in Bosnia, where dialogue between politicians from the two main ethnic entities carved out in the Dayton Accords has broken down.   “Each side has its own media where the politicians can go on and say whatever they want with no one to challenge them when they lie,” he said.

He added that separatist rhetoric has intensified in Bosnia since the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis, and that the international community must stay engaged there to keep the dialogue going.

” As the saying goes,” Karabeg said, “It’s better to have 1,000 days of talking than to have war for even one day.”

“The thermal power plants “Kostolac” and “Te-Ko B” are not flooded, personnel is ready and generation of electricity is under control”, Ministry added in the statement.

In floods that are affecting Serbia since last week at least 17 people have died. According to some media speculations, which have been rebuffed by the government, there are more than one hundred casualties only in Obrenovac.

According to official figures, there were 12 casualties in Obrenovac with more than 7,800 people evacuated. In 2011 the municipality had a total population of 71,419.

The whole town is flooded and evacuated.

The Interior ministry stated that the  situation is “especially difficult” in Krupanj, Sremska Raca and Jamen, all towns in the west of the country. Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic arrived in Krupanj today and delivered help to the citizens.

Nikolic’s media adviser Stanislava Pak said there are casualties in Krupanj municipality.

Crisis staff are not up to the task.

The citizens are upset and they have the right to express their dissatisfaction”, Pak told Beta news agency.

Predrag Maric, head of emergency situations sector, said that “rumours and half-truths are directed to provoke panic and distrust”.

“For two days we are appealing to people to evacuate themselves, but they did not want to… The siren has been turned on… People have been called on evacuation, but they have refused to do so, two days before this (flood) happened”, Maric told B92 television.

“Serbia can count on one billion EUR from the European Union solidarity fund, in order to overcome long-term consequences of disastrous floods”, Kristalina Georgieva, EU Commissioner responsible for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response said today.

` EU Backed Special Tribunal ' for Trial of ` Albanian Guerillas ' accused of ` Harvesting Organs ' from Murdered Serbs'

#AceWorldNews – KOSOVO – April 04 – Western officials are considering a plan for an EU-backed special tribunal to try Kosovo Albanian former guerrillas accused of harvesting organs from murdered Serbs during the Balkan country’s 1998-99 war, Reuters reported.

RT reports that Saturday’s edition of the Kosovo daily, Koha Ditore, will carry an interview with Jonathan Moore, director of the US State Department’s Office of South-Central European Affairs, who said preparations were under way with EU participation for a court based in Kosovo.

BELGRADE – The Serbian Office of the Prosecutor for War Crimes has welcomed the information by Tanjug that came from Brussels, which says that those from the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) indicted for the crimes listed in the report by Dick Marty will be tried in The Hague, and not in Pristina.

The majority of the work will be done outside Kosovo, meaning witnesses will give testimony abroad to protect them.

The move to stage a court stems from a 2011 report by Council of Europe rapporteur, Dick Marty.

` Russian Sapper’s have begun clearing the mines around `Paracin ‘ in ` Central Serbia ‘

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – March 27 – Russian sappers have started a mine-clearing operation in the area around the town of Paracin in central Serbia.

“The operation began on March 26 when specialists of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry arrived in Serbia’s Paracin,” spokesman Aleksander Drobyshevsky told Itar-Tass on Thursday.

“The operation will be held in two stages: from March to June and from June to September,” he said.
The ministry’s group involves 37 bomb disposal specialists from the Leader 294th High-Risk Rescue Centre and the 179th Rescue Centre.

“The centres’ servicemen have years-long experience of international mine clearing operations. They have been involved in the Russian-Serbian project for years,” Drobyshevsky said.

The explosive devices will have to be gathered mostly in Paracin’s suburbs with their dense greenery, he said.

“Bomb disposal specialists will use remote control robots, capable of shredding plants and and metallic objects,” Drobyshevsky said. “There where robots will fail the mine clearing work will have to be done by hand.”

Russia’s Ministry for Emergency Situations conducts the mine clearing operation in Serbia under the Russian government’s instructions.

Serbia’s territory is still stuffed with unexploded ammunition (bombs, bullets, shells, grenades, land mines, naval mines, etc), some of them dating back to World War II.
