Relations between Serbia and Kosovo

Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia in 2008. This fact was recognized by 97 out of 193 UN member states and 22 out of 27 EU member states. At the same time, Ukraine has not recognized the independence of Kosovo and considers this region to be part of Serbia.

In the summer of 2022, there were clashes on the border between Kosovo and Serbia, and shots were also heard. It was noted that the reason for this was the new rules of travel in Kosovo. Then the decision to implement the new rules was delayed for 1 month.

In December, relations between Kosovo and Serbia deteriorated again. The Kosovo authorities blocked the main crossing on the border with Serbia after protesters blocked traffic on this road on the Serbian side.
