Kosovo’s PM, Albin Kurti has posted several photos through which, he has publically denounced two ethnic Serbian citizens, who according to him are responsible for the roadblocks that have been taking place at the border crossing-points of Jarinja and Bernjak in northern Kosovo.

Through a post on his personal Facebook account, Kurti wrote that these individuals have previous criminal histories and that they also hold extremist views.

Kosovo’s PM mentioned the names of Montenegrin citizens, Vladislav Dajkovic and Igor Braunovic, who according to him are the people that hold extensively extremist pro-Russian and pro-Serbian views, and they are widely known for their involvement in criminal activities.

The implementation of the reciprocity principle on the license plates of Serbian vehicles entering Kosovo, has been causing quite a stir in the northern parts of Kosovo, this past week as groups of Serbian citizens set fires to several Vehicle Registration Centres in Zubin Potok, while also throwing hand grenades at another Registration Centre in Zvecan.

During a press conference this Saturday, PM Kurti criticized Serbian president, Aleksandar Vucic, who according to him is encouraging criminal groups in northern Kosovo.

The reciprocity agreement, signed in Brussels, mandates all Serbian citizens driving to Kosovo, to replace their existing license plates with a temporary set carrying RKS acronym, and the same thing applies to Kosovar citizens driving into Serbia.

However, Serbia doesn’t recognize Kosovo as an independent, sovereign state and as a result has been causing a commotion due to Kurti’s implementation of this agreement a few days ago, even though Serbia had been applying these rules ever since the agreement was signed back in 2016.
