Russian Support to Bosnian Separatists

January 25, 2018

Episode Notes:

A couple of weeks ago Bosnian media reported, and the Bosnian security minister confirmed, that the Serb separatist leader in that country was using Russian-trained mercenaries to aid in forming his own paramilitary unit. Mike Carpenter, Senior Director of the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, speaks with Jason about these developments. Dr. Carpenter expresses concern over the possibility of a secession attempt and what that would mean for Balkan stability.
