/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Russia reserves the right to
redirect approaches to the so-called unrecognized
republics in the post soviet space. `In case of the
unilateral recognition of the independence of Kosovo
and Metohija, Russia will be entitled to change its
approach to the so-called unrecognized republics in
the post-soviet regions – South Ossetia, Abkhazia and
Transnistria,’ the chairman of the Council of the
Federation (upper chamber of the Russian parliament),
Sergei Mironov said.

`All know that Russia supports Belgrade not because it
loves Serbia. Moscow has hinted that it will use
Kosovo independence for establishing its own order in
Russia’s `underbelly’. Russia warns against a chain
reaction Kosovo’s independence can trigger. Lawyers
say Kosovo will become a precedent. Besides, Moscow is
the host at its backyard irrespective of a piece of
land in faraway Balkans,’ Die Presse reports.
