MOSCOW. (RIA Novosti military commentator Alexander Bogatyrev) - The other day, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said it would be counterproductive to introduce UN sanctions against either side in the Kosovo conflict.
Before that, the Russian ambassador to Belgrade had said that Russia would veto any "harsh" UN Security Council resolution on Kosovo.
The sanctions in question are directed against Serbia.
According to the Kremlin, the Kosovo dispute can be resolved only at the negotiating table and there should be no deadlines. The sides involved in the conflict need time to resolve their problems.
Criminal organizations have taken over the province's authorities since 1999. Youth groups in Kosovo are growing increasingly radical, so much so that on November 27, the Albanian Flag Day was marked in Kosovo under circumstances of tightened security guaranteed by the presence of nearly all the Kosovo Force's (or KFOR, the province's multinational peacekeeping force) troops and police.

Russia was an obstacle to a solution in the Balkans during the 1990's, and remains so today. Russia's ability to obstruct Western policy aims, however, has diminished considerably.
"The simple solution is to disregard Russian objections to Kosovo's independence from Serbia."
If you live in Europe, you would know that there is no stupider thing than to "disregard Russian objections", being friend or enemy of Russia.
Longest period of peace in Europe was during "Holly Alliance" consisting of Russia,Prussia and Austria.
Longest period of peace and prosperity will be when alliance of Russia, USA, EU and Israel is formed, All and any other alliances will just serve islamofascists in their antichristian combinations.
Helot, the dhimmi, has spoken.
It can be the Balkans' Kaliningrad.
Have fun with it.
The problem is for you history begins and ends with the BJs in the WH and the BJ's terrorist kissing AH Clark.
Your remarks regarding the Balkans and in this case Russia - expose your total ignorance in these matters.
Well if I had to choose between being a "Russian vassal" (as you put it), or being "a dhimmi of the Caliphate", know which one that I would choose!
Insane US policies have driven Serbia into Russia's arms and I don't blame them. US Balkan policies have been so dimwitted that a second-grader could have done better. And yet you continue to defend them? Says quite a lot about you, Hopeless! (Was first grade just too much of a challenge for you?)
How long is the US going to continue to be a vassal to the "Kosovars"?
Comparing to US, EU, and Islamists shit place that we are today... Well, there are no islamists in kaliningrad...
trust me, we would switch places with Kaliningrad any time. peace, no wars, No muslims, no EU "friends"...
Of course - all our fault.
Serbians aren't responsible for their own actions, and are powerless to act in their own best interests.
"Allways trust Muslim, all that he wants is to kill you. Newer trust West, they have sent a Muslim upon you"
"Of course - all our fault.
Serbians aren't responsible for their own actions, and are powerless to act in their own best interests."
Finaly, you admitt...
And you can have it.
Just not with Kosovo.
Win some, lose some.
NATO is going away from Balkans.
They want to ent it. NATO hopes that it can impose its own solutions before they leave.
Only one thing is cerant- NATO is leaving for east, nothing else is.
Ok, sure. Whatever you say.
It will no doubt work out better for Serbia once the EU takes over from NATO in Kosovo as it has done in Bosnia, what with their aims being so diametrically opposed and all.
no EU "friends".
accepting EU "friends" is the quickest way to ensure your eradication at the hands of the moose slammers.
Standard procedure, enroling locals when you are going away, just like former colonial powers...
