Russian Diplomats Declared Persona Non Grata From Kosovo

Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani said on Friday (22.10) that two staff members of the Russian liaison office in Pristina had been declared persona non grata due to activities that were deemed to violate “national security and constitutional order”.

“The Foreign Ministry decided today to declare those two Russian officials undesirable and has informed law enforcement institutions”, she said in a Facebook post. The post said that “Kosovo institutions are fighting against the malignant influence of Russia and its satellites in the region whose goal is to undermine our achievements and the achievements of the US, NATO and European Union”.

“We will continue cooperating closely with our American and European allies to prevent Kosovo and our regime from falling prey to Russia’s destructive ambitions”, Osmani said.
