There never was nor will there ever be any trade with the Kosovo issue when Russia is concerned, Russian Ambassador to Serbia Alexander Chepurin said adding that the UN’s Resolution 1244 remains the only basis for a political solution to the Kosovo issue.
“The Resolution considers the national interests of Serbia and provides the opportunity for their defence. The politics here is determined by Belgrade, and Russia will always support your legitimate demands and choices,” Chepurin said in an interview with Politika after his seven-year mandate.
He said Russia was ready to help Serbia in everything that it asked for.
Chepurin pointed out that there were “full-fledged” military and military-technical relations between Russia and Serbia that substantially strengthened Serbia’s defensive capability.
“The more powerful this potential will be, the more cautious those who might want to harm Serbia will behave. We are ready to help in the extent to which the Serbian leadership wants us to,” Chepurin concluded.
