Earlier in the day, tensions in the already strained relations between Serbs and Albanians in the self-declared Republic of Kosovo arose from the abrupt decision by Kosovo authorities to ban vehicles using Serbian license plates from entering the region. .
Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti is nothing but a puppet of the West and is being used to pressure Belgrade, especially on the issue of support for anti-Russian sanctions, the Chairman of the Serbian Parliament Committee on Kosovo and Metohija, Milovan Drecun. .
“This is the most common puppet. The West needs this Kurti to remind Serbia to fully join the Western bloc, especially when it comes to joining sanctions against Russia” , Drecun told Sputnik. “Since Serbia doesn’t agree, they send a signal – if you don’t impose sanctions, we will turn a blind eye to Kurti’s antics.”

“Serbs are fed up with the systematic bullying that has been going on for years,” the politician said. “People cannot live under such pressure and constant threat.”

“When you gather special forces at administrative crossings, poison the Serbs in the north, constantly stage incidents and collect 20 tons of fuel each, does that mean you are ready for dialogue or vice versa?” he asked.
Moments earlier, the NATO-led Kosovo Force (KFOR) mission had declared itself ready to intervene to restore stability in the region. Drecun noted that the peacekeeping mission in the separatist territory would prevent the use of weapons by Albanian special forces in the region and respect the agreement that Kosovo security forces cannot be deployed in the region. region.
“KFOR must prevent the use of weapons by special forces against the Serbs in the north and recall the agreements with NATO according to which members of the Kosovo security forces cannot be in the north,” he said. he pointed out.
