The results of elections in Kosovo evidence the radicalization of political authorities in Pristina, largely as consequence of silent agreement of the European Union and the United States, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.
A coalition led by the ruling centre-right Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) won the elections in the country which took place on Sunday, with the the radical opposition Vetevendosje party coming second.
“The results of the June 11 snap parliamentary elections in Kosovo evidence further radicalization of the Pristina authorities,” the Russian ministry said in a statement adding that such situation “was a result of silent agreement of the United States and the European Union which do not have due influence on the Kosovo Albanian leadership.”
Kosovo parliament encompasses the total of 120 seats and 20 of them are reserved for the representatives of the ethnic minorities. Kosovo unilaterally proclaimed independence from Serbia in 2008 and is recognized by over 100 UN member states. Serbia and Russia do not recognize Kosovo’s independence.
