A report published on Polika's website said that, searching through the 470,000 files released on November 1, they also found "a banner reading, 'Kosovo jihad - the Muslim extermination of Kosovo Christians', as well as a map of Kosovo from the era of the Ottoman Empire that shows Pristina and Vucitrn."

By further researching online, it was determined that the map of Kosovska Mitrovica and the picture of the Serbian Orthodox Church in that town first appeared on the BBC website, in an article entitled, "Kosovo Serbs face difficult decisions," Sputnik said.
