MOSCOW, December 16 (Itar-Tass) —— A Russian convoy of trucks with humanitarian aid for Kosovo Serbs was finally allowed to drive into the province overnight after the Russia-EU summit gave a green light to it on Thursday.
“The convoy began to drive through Jarine checkpoint,” said the Russian emergencies ministry that sent the convoy.
Initially the Serbs on barricades refused to let EU mission staff in as they arrived in five cars instead of agreed three.
The convoy is to unload in Serb-populated Kosovska Mitrovica and depart for Russia on Saturday. The humanitarian aid includes an icon sent to Kosovo Serbs by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
