Militants on international scale- 7/11 taught West nothing

Russia's permanent representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin reiterated the UN Security Council voiced Moscow's earlier suspicions that Kosovo has become a training ground for militants, including the war in Syria, against the regime of Bashar al-Assad. In Pristina, had rejected the charges, admitting, however, their ties with the Syrian rebels.

Russia's permanent representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin, speaking Monday at the Security Council, confirmed the previously announced by Moscow to the Pristina charges of involvement in the preparation of Syrian fighters.

"The transformation of Kosovo into a military training ground for militants of various armed forces could become a serious destabilizing factor that goes beyond the Balkan region", - he said the rumors of close ties with the Kosovo authorities Syrian opposition.
In late April, the Serbian agency "Tanjug" reported with reference to the Syrian opposition in exile Amar Abdulhamid, a Syrian opposition that will adopt the experience militants Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in the confrontation with the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in the case came to power, recognizes the independence of Kosovo, reports  RIA "Novosti" .

The Russian Foreign Ministry stresses that the republic was transformed into "an international training ground for militants."

The department noted that media reports of contacts with representatives of the Syrian opposition to the Kosovo authorities have attracted attention. "And it's not just about" sharing experiences "in the organization of the separatist movement, aimed at the overthrow of existing regimes, but also on the preparation of Syrian fighters in the territory of Kosovo" - said in a statement posted on the site of the Russian Foreign Ministry, even uncovered some details of this study, saying that in the preparation used in the country districts, "geographically similar to the Syrian reliefs."The Foreign Ministry did not rule out that the former Kosovo Liberation Army bases will be established preparatory centers for militants, and said that "such intent can not but cause concern."

The department stressed that such actions run counter to the efforts of the Special Envoy of the UN and Kofi Annan, Arab League, supported by the international community. "In addition, the transformation of Kosovo into an international training ground for militants of various armed forces could become a serious destabilizing factor that goes beyond the Balkan region", - stressed in the ministry.

In Kosovo itself, some were quick to dismiss the charges. "We were the first who supported the opposition in Libya and other Arab countries in the past year, since we were at war, having the same expectations and values. We have the same approach to Syria, and we had diplomatic contacts, and we support them, "- said after a meeting of the Security Council, Foreign Minister of Kosovo, Enver Khodjaev, stressing that the rebels in Kosovo do not prepare.
However, until now, Russia has already had many reasons to doubt the honesty of the statements of the authorities of Kosovo, which, judging from the previously promulgated the report of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, were themselves involved in numerous crimes committed in the territory's breakaway province.

To remind, a document submitted in 2010 was the result of a two-year investigation conducted at the initiative of PACE after the publication of  former Hague Tribunal prosecutor Carla Del Ponte,  the data about the involvement of senior management of the former Kosovo Liberation Army to the abductions and murders of Serbs for their organs, and shocked the European political . The report, in particular, noted that a key role in the illegal trade in human organs, continuing to this day, despite the presence of international observers in the region, playing the current adviser to Prime Minister Hashim Thaci Sharip Muju.

The author of the report - Swiss senator and former prosecutor Dick Marty - also pointed out that even 11 years ago about the "business" of the current prime minister were well aware of the representatives of NATO countries. In any case, the intelligence Thaci appeared as "the most dangerous crime boss" in Kosovo.
As a result of the publication of these documents PACE, Russia and Serbia have demanded to investigate the crimes committed in the province. However, to date, have Monday Churkin, serious progress in this matter has not been done. "We express our concern about the low rate of investigation of the facts identified by Marty illegal trade in human organs in Kosovo, which is the EU's mission in the field of Rule of Law (EULEX). The investigation must be impartial and bring to justice all those responsible should be ", - said Churkin.

Consent to allow an international commission to investigate these crimes are committed on the territory of a neighboring country just last week was given by the government and the Albanian Parliament.
