Right-wing Serbs storm Kosovo’s borders
The conflict between Serbia and Kosovo threatens to escalate. Recent video footage shows masked Serb extremists trying to storm Kosovo’s border in Järenje. Some of the protesters are also said to have ties to Russia.
The conflict between Serbia and Kosovo escalated again more than a week ago.
The conflict between Serbia and Kosovo is coming to a head again. After Serbian military convoys were seen heading towards Kosovo, Serbia made an attempt to invade Kosovo with about 1,000 army personnel. The recordings are now circulating online again, which is causing concern.
According to local media, the video shows Serb extremists trying to storm Kosovo’s borders. The demonstrators are said to have gathered on the Serbian side near the border crossing in Järenje (Kosovo) to march into Kosovo from there. As the recordings show, dozens of demonstrators – masked and equipped with the Serbian flag – took part in the operation. A banner read: “Kosovo has no borders, it is Serbia”.
“Hold on to Russia”
According to local media, the right-wing Serbian group “National Patrol” was said to have called for the protest. In addition, the extremists are said to have received support from like-minded people from Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Rumors also circulated on Twitter that there must be some pro-Russians among the demonstrators. “Pray to God and Hold on to Russia” was written on a banner.
Meanwhile, the NATO-led peacekeeping force Kfor is said to have erected barbed wire on Kosovo soil near the affected border crossing, blocking the corridor. Favorite
