      The bulk of the inhabitants of Kosovo are ethnic Turks. And many speak Turkish there. The government is pro-Turkish. On this I am not surprised. And so well done, they earn money.

        Rave. Ethnic Albanians. Ilirians. Local tribes that have lived there since the time when the Turks did not even exist in terms of concepts. Damn, what are the dropouts write Turkish manuals like a comb.

          Kaiser no Ilirtsi they are. They were brought by Anzhuytsi in the 10-11th century when they fought against Tsarigrad. Clearly they differ from the rest of the peoples in the Balkan both in language and in body type. disproportionately short legs, etc. What ethnic group does the question belong to? I'm obviously migrants from the old days.

            And today they are used as in the time of Anzhuyutsov, but what will happen when Anzhuyuov does not have a question? wink

          Rave? I spent 17 years of my life in Sweden and there you can’t spit on anyone from Kosovo and many knew Turkish. Favorite flag on red, black eagle. And they speak Albanian as well. So go teach someone who is not familiar with them. Even the Bosnians, including Gypsies from Bulgaria, witnessed many times that many knew Turkish.

            Previously, they were part of the Ottoman Empire ..... The Ottomans Turkified peoples on their territory. And the Pontic Greeks speak Turkish .....

        Well, let him bother with them. What does Russia get from the fact that Erdogan infuriates the Europeans?

      Serbia, with the help of Russia, must increase its military and economic potential and solve the Kosovo problem by military force.

      There are no other options.

      It does not matter how long it takes, but it is necessary to move along this path.

      If I'm not mistaken, the majority of Kosovars are Muslims and, unlike Serbs oriented towards the Russian Federation, look towards Turkey. So everything is logical.

      All around Russia they are hammering and threatening .. After all, the conflict in Serbia can be rekindled again, up to bombing.
      They put pressure on Russia very seriously .. It is difficult for Putin to keep the formation, but the fellow is not fawning and does not ask for mercy .. Let's break through!

        Russia voluntarily relaxed everyone! Under the USSR, problems were created for enemies. For some, the IRA, for others the PKK .... and so on. So that the countries would be busy with their problems and not come to us ...

          Well, not entirely voluntarily, most likely voluntarily-compulsorily .. Advisers from the CIA and others came to us in the 89-90s And the Sabbath began!

          Right, they just stopped their teeth right away .. There was parity, mutual respect, and the words were followed clearly and the actions .. hi
          Now they talk and provocations are all too often .. And yet Russia is too tough for them, we will knock our teeth out if that (Putin said correctly))))
