Kosovo proclaimed its independence today. Russia and Serbia are aggressively opposed to this recent event. They call for the independence being annuled considering it as an illegal act. Kosovo is Serbia’s cultural and historic heartland. Serbians have been demonstrating today in front of the Slovenian Embassy (as Slovenia is running the EU Presidency now), and indeed, in some other European states. Well the Kosovans in Berlin were very loud and festive today.
I was wondering if Uzbekistan and other Central Asian states would recognise Kosova or just follow the Russian line.The majority of Kosova’s population is muslim (Albanians). It is interesting if Central Asian Muslim States (population-wise) would support the Muslim brothers and sisters in southern Europe. By the way, Kosovo is the name used by Serbians and Kosova is going to be the official name of the state, I guess, as it is the Albanian way of saying it.
