ANTI-YUGOSLAVISM AS AN ANTI-SERBIAN PLATFORM FOR POLITICAL AND MILITARY COOPERATION BETWEEN THE USTASHAS AND COMMUNISTS WITHIN THE KINGDOM OF YUGOSLAVIA AND DURING THE WAR ON THE TERRITORY OF THE INDEPENDENT STATE OF CROATIA

The anti-Yugoslavism of the communist and Ustasha’s movements, which was one of the dominant political postulates but also a serious action platform between the two wars, has already been partially written about in our historiography. What we want to draw attention to is the fact that behind such anti-Yugoslavism, sometimes hidden and sometimes publicly, anti-Serbism was highlighted as the common denominator of the political actions of both ideological options. Although differently politically motivated and ideologically explained, in the last resort of the Ustashas and communists, anti-Yugoslavism was essentially anti-Serbian. It is precisely this relationship that we want to analyze in the first part of our work assignment, while we will, first of all, present their active and coordinated cooperation in the second part using examples during the Second World War that most often took place on the territory of the Independent State of Croatia, because Josip Broz's partisans spent most of the time of the war staying in that territory, with abundant logistical support, coordination and tolerance of all state and military formations of Pavelic's criminal regime.

THE USE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN THE RUSSO-UKRAINIAN WAR

The Russo-Ukrainian conflict, with its geopolitical importance, goes beyond regional borders, which is why it is inevitable that we talk about it as a conflict of global proportions. The direct and/or indirect involvement of numerous countries of the world in this conflict, especially in the form of military-technical, technological, economic and economic involvement, confirms the above. The focus of our work is the military-technical aspect, i.e., the use of artificial intelligence and its importance for the present and future of warfare. In the first part of the work, artificial intelligence is conceptually defined, and then the use of artificial intelligence in the military industry is elaborated, as well as its importance in changing the conventional way of warfare. Finally, the authors deal with the use of artificial intelligence in the Ukrainian war, in order to point to a new form of arms race.

GEOPOLITICAL IDENTITY OF THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA AND STRATEGY OF NATIONAL SECURITY

In this paper, we deal with the essential question of whether and in what way the current National security strategy of the Republic of Serbia properly valorizes the geopolitical identity of Serbia and the complex geopolitical position of the Serbian people in the Balkans. We define geopolitical identity as the identification of geopolitical self-awareness and continuity in the time and space of a nation, as a relatively objectifying identity-geographical property of a national or religious group which is related to its specific spatial, cultural-civilizational, religious-confessional and political-state form of existence. Thus, the Serbian geopolitical identity is tellurocratic and is the result of historical forced processes of ethno-spatial repression from the Adriatic coast, unification, conversion to Catholicism, Montenegrinization etc. Apart from the characteristics of a territorially locked country, we would like to point out that Serbia has an island position being surrounded by the member states of one alliance and thus isolated within its territorial space. Serbia is surrounded by NATO member countries and as a result, it faces pressures and has difficulty communicating with potential partners, etc. and if relations deteriorate, it will face military, economic, energy and traffic isolation and sanctions. The specificity of the position of the Balkans and thus of Serbia and Serbian countries, creates a geopolitical magnetism that attracts global and regional powers. The parallel and intertwined interests of these forces create a geopolitical knot in this area as a very important geopolitical feature. These are strategic movements and wedges from several different directions. Russia is trying to coordinate the northeast-southwest direction towards the Mediterranean and warm seas. The German factor has been projecting the direction of movement northwest-southeast for decades. The Islamic factor follows the southeast-northwest direction towards the heart of Europe. The United States is expanding its influence in the southwest-northeast direction and is trying to control most other directions, especially those that extend from the circles of their allies. Finally, China is emerging as a new factor projecting the direction of movement to the west, including the Balkans (China + 17 Initiative), which further complicates Serbia's geopolitical position. Therefore, Serbia and Serbian countries are in a dynamic zone that’s geopolitical, geostrategic and geoenergetic characteristics are the key to preserving the global position of the world’s great powers.

AMERICAN MILITARIZATION OF EUROPE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 21ST CENTURY AS A MALIGNANT EXPLICATION OF THE CONTINUITY OF ANGLO-SAXON GEOPOLITICAL DOCTRINE

In this work, we will seek to show the continuity of Anglo-Saxon geopolitical doctrines and the strategy of American conquest and militarization of Eastern and Southeastern Europe in a time continuity from the beginning of the Cold War to the present. In order to understand and adequately respond to the topic and subject of the research we will devote the introductory part to the key Anglo-Saxon geopolitical doctrines that underlie American strategy, internal political organization and foreign policy. Then we will analyze the Cold War division of the world in order to locate the application of geopolitical doctrines in American strategic emergence on the Eurasian continent and the reasons for the progressive militarization of the world. Finally, we will analyze contemporary developments in international relations to indicate the continued application and innovation of Anglo-Saxon geopolitical doctrines with particular reference to the effects of American action on Serbia and the Serbian people. Although outwardly "perfectly secured America has embarked on the path of" cultural and moral destruction "at the beginning of the 21st century. Nevertheless, the United States is still managing to maintain key zones on the border with Russia, expanding NATO, installing military infrastructure , bases and PRO systems by causing low-intensity conflicts and interfering in the domestic politics of countries in the hemisphere.The zone of Eastern and Southeastern Europe is largely under American control and potential Russian returns are trying in every possible way to prevent, most notably in the Balkans, the destruction of Serbs and Serbian countries. By supporting aggressive neighbors, occupying the Serbian territory of Kosovo and Metohija, building a modern-equipped Bondstil military base, destroying Serbia's political, economic, economic and military systems the United States has strengthened its strategic port in the Balkans. Serbia, on the other hand, has been in a difficult and gloomy struggle for many years on its way to the European Union, and knowing what conditions the West imposes on us, we are right to wonder whether it is a "Long Journey in Europe and / or an Attempt at Civilization for the Conversion of the Serbian People" ?
