NATO peacekeepers opened fire

The Serbian authorities have announced the cancellation of negotiations with Pristina until calm is restored on the Serb-Kosovo border. On the eve of the clashes at the checkpoint "Yarinje", at least 16 Serbs and four NATO soldiers were injured. According to the Alliance soldiers, the locals were the first to use force. The protesters, in turn, say that peacekeepers shot unarmed people.


Stones, bottles, and even improvised bombs ... Locals strongly attacked NATO peacekeepers after they bulldozed one of the barricades erected by Serbs on the road to the Yarinie checkpoint. In response, the military used force. KFOR speaker Ralph Adamec said: "" We are not politicians, but soldiers, and when we are threatened from the outside, we act accordingly. We have enough weapons and skills to respond to aggression adequately and decisively. "

Representatives of KFOR claim that they used tear gas and stun grenades in self-defense, and shot only with rubber bullets. As a result, the list of injured around 20 demonstrators, four are in serious condition. They were taken by ambulance to the hospital Mitrovitsy, and the ambulance which took out the injured also came under fire. Who opened the fire and what kind of ammunition is unknown for certain.

The hospital’s chief physician, Milan Yakovlevich, said: “I don’t know if the peacekeepers used rubber bullets, but someone’s bullet cartridges were definitely shot, because all the victims who came here had just been shot and wounded. weapons".

Participants in the protest claim that NATO soldiers shot unarmed people. However, there are victims among the peacekeepers - four soldiers were slightly injured. The reaction of the European mission in Kosovo followed immediately, and responsibility for the unrest was placed on the local Serbs. The spokesman for the EU mission in Kosovo, Nicholas Houghton, said: "A group of people tried to break through the cordon of peacekeepers, several people were injured. This is a serious incident. Local residents should not break the law."

The situation on the administrative border of Serbia and Kosovo worsened in mid-September this year. Then the Kosovo Albanians unilaterally actually captured the Yarinie checkpoint, placing their customs officers and police there. Kosovo Serbs, trying to hinder their work, blocked both roads through the checkpoint. In 2008, local residents completely destroyed this crossing point in protest against the declaration of independence of Kosovo. Now the settlement of the situation on the border is the main task of the Serbian diplomats. According to them, until the tension subsides, there can be no talk of a new round of negotiations between Belgrade and Pristina.

    Soon, the checkpoints will begin to be built under the walls of Belgrade and then completely cease to exist as the state of Serbia, the Aglo-Saxon project is being methodically implemented for the second century in a row, at first the state of Albania was artificially created to make Serbia a land country, then as soon as the USSR disappeared Kosovo was chopped off (almost instantly) and then with a short time we will see part 3 of the scenario.

    Serbian leaders are also unclear to anyone or what they are trying to. Probably just like ours in England they are trying to stake out a place fellow

    but what did you expect that they will clatter with them after their rulers all surrendered seek in the EU and lie down to the west. Europe’s policy is aimed at the complete destruction of the historical self-esteem of the Serbs as a single people with their own history and land, and Europe leaves no other choice for them.

    We must immediately help the Serb brothers in the fight against the invaders - to drive the NATO military from the occupied territories, push them to the British Isles and hit them with a hydrogen bomb!

        And where is it?
        The article is not about Russian peacekeepers, but about NATO.

        Write an article about the atrocities of the Russian peacekeepers in Ossetia, we will be happy to discuss it.

        And away from the topic is not worth it.

    On the one hand, it is unlikely that the peacekeepers had any choice (maybe even their reaction was deliberately provoked by the Serbs), but on the other, this whole adventure from Kosovo is still a bomb with a timer, and sooner or later it will burst, pressing the Serbs only compresses the spring until detente, and no matter how cool the Serbs behave - they are right
