Kosovo Rally Against Border Agreement

Live updates from the protest in Pristina where the opposition is rallying against a ratification vote on the controversial border demarcation agreement with Montenegro.

    Police forces have been dispatched across Pristina as Kosovo parliament prepares to vote on ratifying the controversial border demarcation agreement with Montenegro, which the opposition Vetevendosje party claims it can – and will – stop from happening with a protest in front of parliament today.

    Kosovo Police are positioned around institutions, crossroads and buildings, while armoured vehicles are also present ahead of the demonstration against the agreement. 

    Citizens have started to gather in front of the parliament with the protest due to start at 11am.

    Kosovo Police found 50 bags containing Molotov cocktails and stones during raids in the Dardania neighbourhood in Kosovo’s capital, Pristina, on Thursday morning ahead of the protest organised by opposition Vetevendosje party against the border agreement between Kosovo and Montenegro.

    Kosovo police earlier confirmed that “in that area we are having an action”, but did not give any additional details. 

    It is yet unclear who the objects belong to.

    The parliamentary session in which MPs will vote on the ratification of the border demarcation with Montenegro has begun, almost two hours after it was scheduled to do so.
