Zlatko Lagomdzija, who was appointed permanent representative of Bosnia and Herzegovina to the United Nations, claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to start a new war in the Balkans.
Former Foreign Minister of Bosnia and Herzegovina Lagomdzija claimed that by intervening in the situation in the Balkans, Putin had encouraged a new conflict in Eastern Europe and tried to distract the West from Ukraine.
Speaking to The Washington Times, Lagomdzija stated that Russia’s failure in Ukraine constitutes an opportunity for the United States and the European Union to regain influence in the region.
Lagomdzija asserted that US indifference to the Western Balkans creates a power vacuum in the region and that Russia is filling it in politics and China in the economy. He claimed that he was making preparations and making calculations that the right moment would come when Ukraine came under Russian control.
Lagomdzija stated that the plan had been delayed by the failure of Russia’s “Operation Lightning” in Ukraine, and suggested that Putin should continue to rely on Dodik to create leverage for negotiations with the West.
