Balkans |  The situation is calm in Zvecan in northern Kosovo

The situation remains calm following violence between Serbs and NATO Kosovo Peacekeepers (KFOR) in Zvecan, northern Kosovo, yesterday.

Serbs continued to wait in crowds around the town hall all day.

The former head of the Zvecan City Council, Srdan Milosavljević, told reporters that the citizens protested peacefully, that they wanted the Kosovo Police special forces to leave the city halls to end the protests, and that the newly elected Albanian mayors, whom he called “fake”, would not do so. Come to the municipal buildings.

Milosavljević also said that they demanded the release of two Serbs who were arrested after the tension in the region yesterday.

Milosavljević appealed to the people of Zvecan, demanding that today’s protest end without incident, and inviting them to protest again with an even larger crowd tomorrow morning.

It was noted that KFOR teams reinforced their security measures by working around the Zvecan municipality building throughout the day.

Protests are held

On May 26, Kosovo Serbs protested against the election of Albanian mayors who won local elections on April 23 in the municipalities of Zvecan, Zubin Potok and Leposavić, where Serbs are concentrated in northern Kosovo.

As protests continued in the area, the Kosovo Police and the Kosovo Peace Corps (KFOR) cordoned off municipal buildings with wire fences and increased personnel in the area.

There was a clash between the Kosovo police, who were sent to the area to protect the Albanian mayors, and the Kosovo Serbs.

Serbia also decided to station its army on the border with Kosovo.

Serbia considers Kosovo, which unilaterally declared its independence in 2008, to be its territory.
