Spat over stopping Russian aid convoy for Kosovo Serbs
The attempt at stopping the Russian convoy with goods for Kosovo Serbs is a humanitarian crime, the Russian Ambassador to NATO Dmitry Rogozin has declared.
He said that such actions run counter to all international regulations and this issue may become one of the key topics in the talks of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at the Russia-EU summit in Brussels.
The convoy with humanitarian aid for Kosovo Serbs from the Russian Interior Ministry arrived at the Jarinje security check-point on Tuesday. The EU mission gave instructions to stop completing formalities and tried to impose an escort of Albanian customs officers and policemen on the convoy . The Russian side did not accept this, so the convoy was blocked.
