Reuters: With Russia as an ally, Serbia edges towards NATO

Serbia is performing a delicate balancing act between its European aspirations, partnership with NATO and its centuries-old religious, ethnic and political alliance with Russia.

Belgrade is being wooed by the West which has sought to bring it into the fold since the fall of Slobodan Milosevic in 2000. Serbia is now a European Union membership candidate and the bloc is its top trade partner and benefactor.

Belgrade is also quietly moving towards NATO despite the reservations of most Serbians but it is wary of damaging its loudly proclaimed friendship with Russia that wants to boost its influence in the region and which is hostile to the military alliance.........

TASS: U.S. "punishes" Russian companies, which assist Syria in fighting terrorism – comment

The U.S. sanctions against Russian defense industry enterprises are aimed at those who assist Damascus in fighting terrorists, which is seen clearly from Washington's policies, Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said in a comment the ministry published on its website, according to Russian news agency TASS.

"By attempting once again to try pressing several enterprises of our defense industry under the pretext of their cooperation with other countries, first of all with Syria, the U.S. has demonstrated clearly the essence of its policies," he said. "How could be considered the aspiration of the White House to "punish" Russian enterprises, which assist the Syrian people in fighting the Islamic State (terrorist organization outlawed in Russia)? What is it if not an indirect support of terrorists?" TASS reports. He said if the administration of the U.S. President Barack Obama does not care about the damage to the Russian-U.S. relations, then they should think how the U.S. looks in the world. "However, as the CIS actually had fostered Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, the lack of principles and moral in Washington's polices is so evident, that in fact there is not much to comment on.".................

For starters! Bombing children and hospitals, especially with chemical weapons doesn't sound like fighting ISIS. These sanctions must be hitting a chord, if they're responding to the latest.
Lithuania welcomes Nato deployment of troops

President says alliance’s plan is an important deterrent to Russia

Lithuania has welcomed Nato plans to dispatch troops close to the Russian border as the beginning of a new policy of deterrence against Moscow.

Dalia Grybauskaite, Lithuania’s president, said the alliance’s plans to send four battalions with a total of 3,000-4,000 troops to the three Baltic states and Poland, was an important deterrent to Russia, which her government views as an increasing and unpredictable threat.

“If we [border states] will not be heard then Russia will do whatever they want,” Ms Grybauskaite told the Financial Times. “That is why it’s also one of the tools of our defence to be outspoken, to be clear, and to be heard.”.............

I would agree to head Ministry of Defense, - Savchenko. VIDEO
.... The rest of the General Staff are just dozens of colonels and generals, and we have too many of them. They just slow down everything. I would legalize a really effective army and sweep away everyone who absorbs money, stimulates corruption and harms those who at the forefront," she added.

I agree with what she says, and speaking with military people on a daily basis, I know the armed forces reek of corruption and incompetence.
Savchenko would be good at cleaning up corruption - given a clean slate.
But - to head the Ministry of Defence - that is something rather different.
