Serb hard-lin­ers win: Mil­i­tant Bos­nian Serb na­tion­al­ists who want to break up Bos­nia-Herze­gov­ina won key po­si­tions in the coun­try’s gov­ern­ment this week. Hard-liner Milo­rad Dodik took the Ser­bian seat in Bos­nia’s three-per­son pres­i­dency, while his ally, Zeljka Cvi­janovic, be­came pres­i­dent of Bos­nia’s au­ton­o­mous eth­nic-Serb prov­ince, Repub­lika Srp­ska. Dodik, who has strong ties to Rus­sia, has pledged to take Repub­lika Srp­ska out of Bos­nia. He said he would use his power “to work above all and only for the in­ter­ests of Serbs.” The other two seats in the na­tional pres­i­dency are re­served for a Bos­nian Mus­lim and a Bos­nian Croat; both were won by mod­er­ates.

Dodik: Sep­a­ratist
