Russian Parliament Sees Policy Change Post-Kosovo

Part of AP’s report published today

Russia’s parliament said Monday Moscow had the right to review its stance on separatist states in former Soviet republics, if Kosovo is recognized as independent, Interfax news agency reported. 

Sovereignty for Kosovo “would give Russia every right to build a new format for its relations with self-proclaimed states,” said a declaration adopted by both houses of parliament after Kosovo’s declaration of independence Sunday. 

“Now that the situation in Kosovo has become an international precedent, Russia should view existing territorial conflicts taking into account the Kosovo scenario,” the declaration said.
