Summary/Abstract: From the moment of signing the agreement of founding the Serbian-Russian centre for the emergency situations in Niš, in Serbia and the region, there have been speculations about its real purpose. The bravest conclusion has been made by the consulting agency STRATFOR. According to them the Niš center could become the logistics base for the Russian army operations. In the following text we shall define why STRATFOR’s conclusion does not correspond to the real circumstances, by enlisting the factors that distract the expansion of any Russian influence, except the economic one. We shall explain the purpose of EMERCOM and analyze its capacities, as well as the capacities of the Ministry that presents Serbian governement’s parter in this project. Finally, we shall explain the connection of founding the centre and one other, strategically more important, Russian project on the Balkans.
