The paper analyzes the advancements of Serbia towards deeper integration with the EU. The question of Kosovo could still compromise that process and the Brussels Agreement between Belgrade and Pristina, last year, did not produce lasting concrete results to define the status of Kosovo. Tensions between Washington and Moscow are not creating a favorable climate for the implementation of the Agreement. Serbia is also suffering for a precarious financial situation that is creating concern among the major financial organizations. In the meantime, the 2014 flood catastrophe has partly re-established a kind of Yugoslavian solidarity among the populations of Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia, a spirit of cooperation beyond the national differences and cultures, which should be consider as undoubtedly precious trend, after the internal conflicts of the Nineties.
