Russia is Against Rashly Proclaiming Kosovo Independence

Moscow. Moscow is against rashly proclaiming of Kosovo independence, announced the Russian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Chizov, cited by RIA Novosti. “There is a whole process going on for the realization of the Kosovo standards. I do not know how long it’ll take but the Russian side is against the rashly haste and cooperation for this process. When it is ready, the issue will be discussed in the Contact Group for Kosovo and the UN Security Council. The biggest anxiety comes from the situation of non Albanian population of the province and the return of the refugees”, said Chizov.

As much as I respect the Russian culture, its painful to see when they side with Belgrade, although in this case they seem to side with Kosovar Serbs, which makes more sense. Albanians have to guarantee (as they always have) security for everyone, not only Serbs, and Russians should acknowledge that Kosova (and Albanians) are not their enemies.

France and China will neither accept independence. So, my dear gentlemen, if you are updated and educated, you know that a decision like that will and must go through the United Nations Security Council where all the five permanent memberstates must vote yes. In other case......well, everyone can scream as much as they want that they are independent in vain. Good luck.

Previous poster- the decision most likely will go through the UN Security Council, but you are inaccurate in suggesting that it must. The initial bombing of Yugoslavia went around Security Council approval, as did the Iraqi invasion in 2003.

Russia and China are clearly against Kosova's independence, and a change in their stance is relatively unlikely. France, on the other hand, is a wild card moving into the 21st century. Due to EU enlargement, the French are gradually becoming less and less dependant on the Russians and more on Western ideology and ideas. With the extended power of the EU, which remains in the shadow of the US powerhouse. With joint US and UK pressure, the French will succumb and eventually vote in favor of indepedence. If not, the US can always go around the formality altogether, as it did with the recognition of Israel. Recognition by America constitutes automatic international recognition in nearly every capacity.

Well said Chris.

Chris,

I am confident that "the updated and educated gentleman" poster knows that the only consequence of not being recognized by the security council members is the absence of the Kosova seat in the U.N. general assembly.

Here in Kosova, we're sick of UN(MIK) anyway. Recognition by the United States (which of course will be followed by most of the countries, other than Russia, China, France and perhaps India) is all we care for anyway.

Guys, do not forget that the statement of this dude contains the word "rashly".

Main Entry: 2rash
Function: adjective
1 : marked by or proceeding from undue haste or lack of deliberation or caution
2 obsolete : quickly effective
- rash·ly adverb
- rash·ness noun

Therefore, I sense that mother Russia is having second thoughts... they are against the "quick one sided declaration of independence", but that does not mean that they are against the step-by-step or conditional independence.

Serbia's main ally is looking a little overweight before the title fight...

Russia will not be against independence, they are smarter than that, there is no need to side with Belgrade on this.

Same with China, it doesn't care, it will abstain. As for India, it will vote whatever the US asks it to.

The Turks occupied Kosovo for 500 years and the Serbs still eventually liberated it. While Chris Blakic and his other Serbs who became Goranci then Albanci will be lucky to control it for 5 years (if at all).

Well, we see where you belong with that sort of mindset, together with those Turks from 500 years ago. No seriously, its not 1400 A.D. anymore, if you haven't noticed, we're in 2005 A.D.

Chris Blaku said...

The Serbs barely liberated Serbia, and would never have without the assistance of the Russians. Moreover, the Serbians and Montenegrins would have never taken Albanian land under Ottoman rule without Russia overcoming the Ottoman government and forcing into action the Treaty of San Stefano.

The Serbs had nothing to do with the liberation of Kosova from the Ottoman grip, other than the deceit of Albanian freedom fighters under the League of Prizren, particularly Isa Boletini and Idriz Seferi (Boletini was never fooled by the Serbs, but did take full advantage of them). Furthermore, Serbia's sisterstate Montenegro under Krajl Nikola (who was a bum and appeared in rags before the League of Nations asking for Ulqin, which he got) manipulated the malesor clans of northern Albania into fighting away Turk occupation so they themselves could occupy the position of the Turks, without a regular army to oppose them.

The Serbians have never won anything without deceit and help, they are cowards that celebrate every war they ever lost.

Chris. The story you tell is what YOU have read. This MUST not be the truth. It MIGHT be truth, but the story is different depending where you live in the world or in Europe. I fully believe that YOU believe that Skanderbeg was an Albanian. Right ?

Chris Blaku said...

Gjergj Kastrioti is historically proven to be an Albanian, despite constant attacks on his character, last name, and his mother's name by greedy Serb and Greek historians, anxious for feather's in their cap.

The story I tell is the factual history of Kosova, if you disagree with me, present me with your facts and we can gladly debate them.

Anonymous, and I am sure YOU believe that Alexander the Great was a FYROM-ian...

Considering the fact that you are not that many in terms of population even for European standards, and also the fact that you multiply like rabbits (10 children per family; if the husband is not there the rest of the family do the business of reproduction etc) I guess you are fooling yourselves with historical data which is mathematically not possible. Try to calculate how many of you existed 200 years ago, and the result is not that encouraging. As for a thousand years ago - you must be joking. You would have disappeared from inbreeding if nothing else - we all know that you stick to your own kind. Hence, the distinguished features (short legs, big heads, droopy shoulders rotten teeth etc)that make it so easy to recognise on of your own kind.
Mr Blaku, I don't really know where do you get brainwashed with this info, but you need to sit down and do some serious independent research before you allow yourself to lecture the rest of us.

Chris Blaku said...

I should allow myself to be lectured by a fool who uses the basis of physical characteristics to come up with a historical solution on our population figures?

Ottoman and Venetian census reports of the 15th century record a sizeable Albanian population throughout areas that Albanians currently inhabit. It has been historically proven that Albanians are the direct descendants of the Illyrian tribes of the southern Balkans, and coupled with the high birthrate, you do indeed pose an interesting question. Were the massacres of Albanians by barbarian hordes, Slavics, Turkic Bulgars, Greeks and Turks so severe as to literally halt the progress of an entire population for hundreds of years?

Perhaps you do not consider that the "10 children per family" is a natural consequence of a large number of the children dying before their time due to warfare and rampant deseases that were common in that region. Moreover, you also do not consider that Serbians have also been recorded, until recently, to have a comparable birthrate in the region of Kosova.

In any case, you present a laughable argument... But I never would have expected anymore from you.

Skanderbeg was a Serb. His mother, Voisava, was 100% Serbian. His father John had an Albanian mother but his grandfather Branilo was Serbian. Here is the genealogy of his family:

Gjergj Kastrioti's mother was NOT Serbian, but rather came from a royal Albanian family of Orthodox blood. Likely also, was the fact that Gjergj Kastrioti himself was an Orthodox Albanian, rather than a Catholic, as commonly believed.

The numerous Orthodox Slavic names taken up by Albanians in the Northern region of Albania at the time, was a result of the harsh Slavization policies of Stefan Dushan's empire, which collapsed in 1364, nine years after his demise.

What is not explained by the blogger, is why Gjon Kastrioti was given an Albanian name, Gjon, if his father was Serbian? The answer is, his father was Albanian, from a region less infultrated by Slavization, Kruja, and his wife Vojvosa was from a region further infiltraetd with Slavization, prompting her Orthodox name.

Orthodox does not automatically equate one with Serbian ancestry. The Serbs are not the first to claim Gjergj Kastrioti, as the Bosnians, Greeks and Montenegrins have tried to for hundreds of years, lacking historical precedence of their own.
