Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić has already stated that Serbia “has never been in a more complex and difficult situation (regarding Kosovo – UNIAN) than today.” He asked the parties to remain calm and stressed that “if they do not want to keep the peace, Serbia will win.” According to  srbija danas , Vučić said that “the Serbs will no longer tolerate persecution.”

“The Serbs told me this ten times yesterday. I almost knelt before them and begged them for peace. In the end, I managed to get a promise that they would neither provoke nor attack the Albanians, no matter what they did. The situation is much more serious than most people think,” he said.

About 200 Albanians gathered just behind the main bridge separating northern and southern Kosovska Mitrovica . According to unofficial information, they will go to the Rudar region near Zvechan, where they will put up barricades.

The reason for the dissatisfaction of citizens was the change in the rules of travel in Kosovo. Citizens with Serbian documents will be issued an entry and exit document, and on August 1, the re-registration of vehicles with numbers from the Republic of Serbia to Kosovo will begin.

  1. I can’t agree with you guys. Kosovo was part of the heart and history of Serbia. yes, they committed atrocities, but the people that committed them should have been removed, executed and Kosovo remain a part of Serbia. Kosovo is as much occupied territory as Crimea is.
