Material posted: Publication date: 23-01-2017
In Kosovo there is a network of Russian agents! This information is in the material without the signatures were published on the website of the Kosovo TV channel RTK, citing data from the "Kosovo intelligence Agency".

The head of the “intelligence network” the Albanians call Dragan Trifkovic is a Serbian politician and journalist, has never hidden his Pro-Russian orientation. Participants in the “underground” declared number of active and open opponents of the so-called Kosovo “independence”. These same people oppose the policies of Belgrade, aimed, in their opinion, to a gradual de facto recognition of the “independence” of Kosovo. According to representatives of Serbian NGOs in Kosovo itself, the RTK is not just a provocation is, in fact, a hit list.

A particular danger of this list is that in addition to the widely known leaders of the Kosovo Serbs living in the North of the region beyond the reach of the Albanian authorities, there “Russian spies” is called and people from the southern enclaves in the Albanian environment – Loud M. and a journalist from Gracanica are marked with initials, B. N.

It puts their life in immediate danger and all responsibility for their health and safety since the publication of the libel falls on the authorities in Pristina and on EDGE. The situation in Kosovo, this publication is a direct call to violence, to lynching. 13 years ago, such materials, from the same sources, marked the beginning of the March pogroms, which led to casualties among the Serbian population, destruction of property, as well as temples and monasteries.

To protest against the inflammatory text were the Union of journalists of Serbia and the Society of journalists of Kosovo and Metohija, which required the intervention of the OSCE mission in the region, other international structures to prosecute violators of professional standards "groundlessly accusing the group of persons in espionage in favor of Russia and put their lives at risk".

Itself Dragan Trifkovic accused the "intelligence service illegal the Pristina authorities" to unsubstantiated insinuations based on the "intelligence" of her Facebook profileas "network members" called her friends on the social network. For its part Trifkovic promised "with the help of colleagues from the EU to supply the European Parliament on the question of the media in Kosovo and Metohija and about the abuse of the Kosovo journalists' personal information," and in the case of "continue the lie" – to bring the case to the European court.

Characteristically, this publication not only continued the series of “revelations” of the Russian conspiracy” in the Balkans, but also tied together all these episodes. Russian trace in the “coup attempt” in Montenegro displays the anonymous authors of this provocative publication in Kosovo, and there ensued in Belgrade. Given the fact that in recent time, regional media are thrown fake about the involvement of “Russian” to any intensification of protest moods in the Balkans, the emergence of this publication is a clear indication that the region launched a large-scale, coordinated external forces anti-Russian campaign. It targets, primarily, the people elected, has ever claimed that see the future of their countries in Alliance with Russia. Now at the sight of not only the activists, but also the leadership of the parliamentary opposition block Democratic Front, in Montenegro, the President of the Republic of Srpska in Bosnia Milorad Dodik. There is every reason to believe that soon (in process of approach of presidential elections in Serbia) will add to the list and the current Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic. A characteristic feature of these “spy networks”, like the one that now all the forces trying to pull the countries of the region, is that it can push anyone...

In a deployed system in the Balkans campaign against "Russian influence" the special responsibility required from participants and commentators of developments in the region. Any careless word, thoughtlessly thrown for effect loud slogan used by the enemies of our country and can be costly to our supporters in the Balkans.
