Aid delayed: Russian convoy blocked at Kosovo 'border'


rt.com

The Russian convoy, consisting of 25 trucks with humanitarian aid, including power-generators, blankets, food supplies, furniture and other necessities, had been heading for Mitrovica, the largest city in Kosovo’s Serb-dominated north. Two trucks were able to enter Kosovo through the Jarinje border checkpoint, but the rest were not allowed through by the EULEX police in charge of the post.

EULEX said it wanted to escort the convoy on its way to Mitrovica, but Russia said the region was safe and

Situation is developing....
Only three trucks have passed and then NATO forces blocked the convoy, so the three trucks that passed the line are still waiting for the others.
Russian ambassador Konuzin is still with the Serbian people guarding the barricades.
There are rumors that Russian armed forces have blocked US Military supply line to Afghanistan until this situation is resolved.

The Russians should just push through with the aid convoy and call the EULEX bluff...

..what are they going to do..fire on a humanitarian aid convoy and cause an international incident ?

I would love to see them explain that one at the UN security council.

More news from the people on the scene:
SNP1389



РУСКИ КОНВОЈ, још није прошао Јариње. Стојимо на барикади у међузони и ниједан камион није прошао још увек, али могуће је да су пропуштена 3 камиона од 27 који су још јуче стигли до прелаза где су блокирани,остали су се вратили у централну Србију. Е сада...пошто је синоћ било иницијативе да народ ослободи камионе са Јариња, Господин Конузин нам је рекао, да нема потребе за тим, јер су снаге Руске Федерације, блокирале канвој америчке војске који вози снадбевање за НАТО у Афганистану,тако да када пусте Русе на Јарињу, и Руси ће НАТО у Авганистан
Стпљен спашен,али руски конвој стиже на српско Косово ускоро...први ће те знати,СНП 1389,на лицу места!

My translation because Google Translate is still not good enough...



RUSSIAN CONVOY, stil did not pass Jarinje. We remain on the barricades in the bufferzone and no truck has passed yet, but it is possible that three trucks were let through out of 27 that arrived yesterday to the passage where they are blocked, the rest returned to central Serbia. Now.... because there was an initiative for the people to liberate trucks from Jarinje, mister Konuzin told us that it is unnecessary, because forces of Russian Federation, blocked convoy of US military that transports supplies for NATO in Afghanistan, so when they let Russians on Jarinje, Russians will let NATO in Afghanistan too ;-) Who is patient is saved, but russian convoy will arrive on Serbia's Kosovo soon... you'll be the first to know, SNP 1389, on the scene!

No, Russia will handle this diplomatically, Konuzin received strict orders to sit tight and do nothing while Russia handles this thru proper channels... That means Brussels

Isn't the blending of local and international politics beautiful?

This is how they make people think it's the population of one country's fault for starting conflicts and being inhumane to other countries...... meanwhile politicians smile for the camera and tell us how important they are to 'resolving' the problem... go on... wave a flag... that'll do it.

I suspect that our reaction is supposed to be more anxiety and angst..... after all "peace is war."

I refuse to oblige - because I know these "leaders" do whatever they want to do... and this show is part of it.

I wouldn't just call it politics. People there rely on Russian help because they get none from their Serbia.
After negotiations failed that all Serbs in Kosovo get Russian citizenship, Russia responded it will protect the people there and sent humanitarian aid, medicine, some food, tents and other supplies.
Oh, and that flag... that's my country's flag and Црна Гора = Montenegro

That means my countrymen are there too to give support and defend local population from aggression

WHY? Why is NATO here? WHY are we in this area enforcing a social experiment?

Anyone? Someone explain it to me.

With everything that's been going on lately in the world, it seems that some people really want a war to break out.
The hotspots around the world are getting hotter everyday and the economies keep going down. Governments are getting desperate and the best way to unite nations is war. Nobody wants war, but nobody wants to back down either. Makes me wonder about the usefulness of the UN. If it truly worked this wouldn't happen.


I hope they can talk it out.

Well, this is the closest Russia got to NATO face to face, one wrong move and a can of worms will be unleashed....
BOTH sides HAVE to be very cautious and choose words carefully....

Uhm, please re-read your article NATO had nothing to do with blocking the Russians. That was done by EULEX, which is solely European Union, not NATO.

See above answer...

Is it that hard to read an article before jumping on the bandwagon?

No, I saw that - I just needed a place to yet again request that SOMEONE from NATO explain why we are there.

I keep asking. Eventually, someone is going to give me a reason.

KFOR

NATO’s initial mandate was:[4]
to deter renewed hostility and threats against Kosovo by Yugoslav and Serb forces;
to establish and maintain a secure environment in Kosovo, including public safety and civil order;
to demilitarise the Kosovo Liberation Army;
to support the international humanitarian effort;
to coordinate with and support the international civil presence.

Today, KFOR focuses on building a secure environment in which all citizens, irrespective of their ethnic origins, can live in peace and, with international aid, democracy and civil society are gradually gaining strength. KFOR tasks have included:
assistance with the return or relocation of displaced persons and refugees;
reconstruction and demining;
medical assistance;
security and public order;
security of ethnic minorities;
protection of patrimonial sites;
border security;
interdiction of cross-border weapons smuggling;
implementation of a Kosovo-wide weapons, ammunition and explosives amnesty programme;
weapons destruction;
support for the establishment of civilian institutions, law and order, the judicial and penal system, the electoral process and other aspects of the political, economic and social life of the province.

The Contact Group countries have said publicly that KFOR will remain in Kosovo to provide the security necessary to support the provisions of a final settlement of Kosovo's status.[5]



EULEX

The European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX) is the largest civilian mission ever launched under the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). The central aim is to assist and support the Kosovo authorities in the rule of law area, specifically in the police, judiciary and customs areas. The mission is not in Kosovo to govern or rule. It is a technical mission which will monitor, mentor and advise whilst retaining a number of limited executive powers. EULEX works under the general framework of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 and has a unified chain of command to Brussels

The oil reserves you are talking about are located in Northern Albania and Serbia.

Incorrect......

Incident at Pristina Airport



The Incident at Pristina was a confrontation between the NATO forces and Russian forces over the Pristina International Airport in the aftermath of the Kosovo War. Russian troops occupied the airport ahead of a NATO deployment, resulting in a tense stand-off, which was resolved peacefully.


Should the same situation develop these days I beleive the outcome would be much different.

Russia is staring Nato down the gun barrel not only in Kosovo but also in georgia, and poland with the missile shield.

Northern Kosovo is becoming the Palestine of Europe unfortunately.....USA and Nato have no right to be there, have no right to recognize Kosovo as an independant country.

They cannot get their own yard in order yet they sow weeds in everybody elses yards.

I actually support the Kosovo's independence .



Orthodox Russia is knocking on the doors of Catholic Europe - yet again .

NATO is there to ensure that the Vatican's interests are not damaged in the area .
