Russia is deeply shocked by the Albanian terrorists' attack on Russia's Kosovo-based peacekeepers, which entailed the death of a Russian serviceman, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Yakovenko wrote in a statement released Thursday to RIA Novosti. The act of terrorism once again demonstrated the true nature and intentions of Albanian terrorists, who are far from interested in peace, tranquility, security, and restoration of a multi-ethnic Kosovo. "They act using methods pertaining to terrorists - they kill from behind the corner," Yakovenko said. The tragic incident has once again underscored the necessity that the international community take decisive action to demilitarize Albanian paramilitary formations, disarm the population and ensure genuine security in the region, Yakovenko emphasized. The Foreign Ministry spokesman added that Russian peacekeepers came to Kosovo to take part in a peacekeeping operation whose goal is to help restore multi-ethnic accord and reconciliation. "They are doing their job honestly and with integrity," Yakovenko pointed out.
