"This is because we respect principles of international law, and because Serbia is a close friend of Russia," Aleksandr Konuzin said during his visit to the Đavolja Varoš natural monument this Sunday.

The ambassador said an attempt was ongoing to forcibly take away Serbian territory, and described this as illegal and contrary to international law and UN Charter.

"In the past period there was a systematic policy to take Kosovo away from Serbia. Just as in 1939 Czechoslovakia was stripped of a part of her territory, so the same states that participated in that arrangement are taking part in the snatching of Serbia's territory," said Konuzin.
