Russia reacts after two Russian officials declare non-women: Kosovo's

Russia has reacted after Kosovo's decision to declare 2 Russian officials non-women, saying that the so-called Kosovo authority has launched a major anti-Russian provocation.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharaova in a statement called on UMNIK to provide the necessary conditions for the full work of staff at the Russian Office in Pristina

"On October 22, the so-called 'authorities' of Kosovo launched a major anti-Russian provocation, announcing - including publicly - that two Russian diplomats working in the Pristina Office of our Embassy in the Republic of Serbia were unwanted. We assume that this attack by the administration in Pristina did not bring any consequences for the legal status of the mentioned Russian diplomatic staff. In accordance with international law and UN Security Council Resolution 1244, which is essential for the settlement of Kosovo, they are accredited to the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) and have no connection with the structures. of this self-proclaimed state.

We call on UNMIK and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Kosovo, as part of its competence under Resolution 1244, to provide reliable assurances and the necessary conditions for the full work of the Russian Office in Pristina. We await the relevant written guarantees from the UN administration. "We hope that the challenging behavior of Kosovar leaders will receive the necessary critical qualifications", said Zakharaova.
