On Saturday, Serbian united security forces began occupying sector "D" on the administrative border with Kosovo, reported a press centre of the government committee for settlement of the crisis in the town of Bujanovac (southern Serbia). Sector "D" is a zone 49 km long and 4 km wide. The troops will be deployed along the border and will stop at a distance of one kilometre from it. The Serbian military will not enter the populated localities and private homes. The entry into the zone is being conducted under the control of international peace forces in Kosovo (KFOR) and, as the press centre stressed, there are no incidents. It is in this sector that a Russian peacekeeper was shot dead from the ambush when the sapper unit of the Russian contingent marked the border in order to show safe passages for the introduction of Yugoslavian troops.
