Russia and its traditional ally Serbia on Wednesday blamed NATO and the European Union for the recent increase in tensions in Kosovo, where local police launched a raid in the Serb-dominated north of the country.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday’s incident, which saw heavily armed Kosovo police carry out what they said was an organized crime operation, was instigated by “those who want to create a buffer zone from Russia on the Balkans” and who “want to push everyone to NATO.”

Speaking to reporters in Slovenia where he was on an official visit, Lavrov said the two bodies “hold sway” over the authorities in Kosovo.
