Local self-government officials are still unable to go to work in Leposavic, Zubin Potok and Zvečan.
The Serbs around the local self-government buildings were joined by the miners of Trepča, who cannot work either, because the flotation plants in Leposavic are also blocked.
President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, said that Serbia is ready to do everything to calm the situation and that the most powerful step for de-escalation would be the withdrawal of the mayors who were elected in the elections, in which three percent of the voters turned out.
KFOR members without helmets
Behind the barbed wire fence in Zvečan stands a smaller KFOR cordon, whose membes this morning do not even have helmets on their heads, which is an indication that the situation is calming down a bit. In front of the municipality building itself, there are several vehicles of Kosovo special forces, and they are still in the building.
The wounded Galjak is still in serious condition
Dragisa Galjak, a Serb who was wounded on Monday during riots in the north of Kosovo and Metohija, is a little better than yesterday but is still in serious condition, says Dr. Zlatan Elek, director of KBC Kosovska Mitrovica. Galjak is still in the intensive care unit of this health institution.
