Following the unexpected retaining of the balance of power between the Democrats and Republicans after the midterm elections marking the halfway point in the mandate of President Jo Biden, it seems that U.S. policy on Ukraine won’t change drastically, as was suggested. The U.S. attitude towards the Balkans wasn’t even expected to change, but perhaps the public’s stance on Washington will change a little.
It is said that when the U.S. sneezes, the world gets the sniffles. The same kind of thing was announced with great certainty even after the elections marking the halfway point in Jo Biden’s presidency, but that didn’t come to pass. Despite the mistakes of many analysts, including those sympathetic to the Democrats, the election results don’t mean that U.S. policy regarding the war in Ukraine will remain completely unchanged. On the other hand, it doesn’t seem as though changes to the U.S. policy led in our region, and in Serbia, were possible at all, according to CorD’s interlocutors for this issue of Focus.
