The police raids in the Serbian enclaves in Kosovo on October 13 became a manifestation of Pristina’s conscious line to exacerbate the situation, Russian Permanent Representative Vasily Nebenzya said at a meeting of the UN Security Council.
“The situation in the northern regions of Kosovo has noticeably deteriorated over the past month and causes serious concern,” said Russia’s permanent representative to the UN.
He added that the vague reaction of the West to the actions of Pristina “provokes an open confrontation.”
Earlier it was reported that representatives of Belgrade and Pristina managed to reach an agreement on de-escalation in North Kosovo. A message about this appeared on the Twitter page of the EU Special Representative for the Western Balkans Miroslav Lajcak.
The text of the agreement indicated that the Kosovar police had to leave two checkpoints, Yarine and Brnjak, which were occupied on 20 September.
We add that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic thanked the Russian Federation for its active support of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country against the background of aggravation in Kosovo.
