KOSOVO JULY 2000

Report based on information from the government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

During  the military and Civil presences of the United  Nations and since they  took full responsibility for the situation in the Province in June 1999,  Kosovo Albanians are responsible for

  • 5,000 terrorist attacks  
  • More than 1,000 murders 
  • over 940  people abducted. 
  • About 360,000 Serbs, Muslims, Roma, Turks, Gorani, Egyptians  and other non-Albanians have been driven from their homes. 
  • Eighty-six Serbian medieval places of worship and cultural and historic  sites of inestimable value  have been destroyed. 
  • More than 250,000 foreigners,  mostly citizens of Albania  and Macedonia, have illegally crossed the State  border of the FR of Yugoslavia and stayed in Kosovo Province. 

The terrorist "Kosovo Liberation Army", which has allegedly been  transformed  into the so-called "Kosovo Protection Corps", continues with its terror and ethnic cleansing, which is evidence that it has not been demilitarized, disarmed or disbanded.

The failure of the UNMIK and KFOR  Mission to protect the basic  human  rights of the inhabitants, for whose security  they took responsibility, as well as to preserve the multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural character of Kosovo and Metohija, is more than evident. 

The Government of the Federal republic of Yugoslavia says  that the systematic violation of  Security Council resolution 1244 (1999) has prevented the launching of the  political process of settling  the status of the Province of Kosovo within the Republic of  Serbia  and the FR of Yugoslavia, as set out in resolution 1244 (1999).
