Although the intervention in Kosovo was originally billed as humanitarian, the EULEX authorities in Pristina have refused to allow a Russian convoy to enter Northern Kosovo to bring humanitarian aid to the Serbs there.  The situation in Northern Kosovo has been tense and even violent since EULEX started to impose controls on the border crossing between Kosovo and Central Serbia.  The Serbs in Northern Kosovo, like the Russian government which does not recognise the independence of Kosovo, consider that this is an illegal and unwarranted act whose purpose is to cut off their hard-won independence.

This report on the latest developments from the Serbian news agency B92.
