Kosovo: 6 Russians, 5 Serbs detained near border with Serbia

The Kosovo police say they have detained six Russian and five Serb nationals for illegally crossing the border from Serbia, reported AP.

The force said that those detained Tuesday were traveling in two vehicles when they were stopped near the Kosovo-Serbia border.

They are being held by the border police and authorities “have notified Russia’s diplomatic office in Kosovo.”

Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia in 2008, a move not recognized by Moscow or Belgrade.
