Russia warns of “chain reaction” from Kosovo UDI

Russia warned the West on Monday that recognizing a unilateral declaration of independence (UDI) by Kosovo could set off a “chain reaction” of problems in the Balkans and beyond.“I want to stress that UDI of Kosovo and recognition of such independence will not remain without consequences,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on the day mediation efforts between Serbia and Kosovo Albanian leaders officially expired.

“It will create a chain reaction throughout the Balkans and other areas of the world,” he told to reporters, speaking through a Greek interpreter, after talks with Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos.
