Russia warns against accepting Kosovo to UN


Russia is categorically against Kosovo joining the UN and international financial institutions. This country’s envoy to the OSCE, Anvar Azimov, said on Thursday that attempts to push the Kosovo separatists into such organizations violated legal and moral principles that all talk that UN membership will help the region’s administration improve the plight of the local ethnic Serb population simply holds no water.

This is exactly the slogan the separatists’ sponsors used when prodding the region towards unilateral independence they proclaimed last February and which pushed even further back the creation of a multiethnic society in Kosovo, Azimov said.
