    MOSCOW, April 8, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - Moscow suggested that weapons should be confiscated from people living in Kosovo.

    "There are some particular conditions for stabilizing the situation in Kosovo we consider very important," the official spokesman of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Alexander Yakovenko, said at a RIA Novosti press conference.

    "First, the initiators of the recent unrest in Kosovo should be punished for their crimes," Mr. Yakovenko noted.

    "Second, it is necessary to confiscate the many weapons people in Kosovoa have, as they are a significant element in the riots," said Mr. Yakovenko.

    According to Mr. Yakovenko, "it is difficult to meet the standards of UN Security Council resolution No 1244 without removing causes underling ethnic cleansing."
