From 1999 to today, 2% of reconstruction aid in Kosovo(3 billion euros, paid mainly by European taxpayers) has ended up in the pockets of UNMK officials and their Kosovar accomplices. An annual cost per office and staff of 300 million euros. Everything justified in the name of the “Balkan pax”. This is the budget of the UN bureaucratic machine. That leaves behind a miserable Kosovo and a long list of pending processes.
