On the border with the unrecognized Kosovo, the Serbs with trucks blocked the main motorway Kosovska Mitrovica - Ribarich in the city of Zubin Potok. This is reported by the News.rs.

According to the resource, Jeeps of the US international forces led by NATO, responsible for ensuring stability in Kosovo (KFOR), arrived at the blockade.

"A dozen American soldiers can be seen around the jeeps," the report said.

Serbs block the road to Lake Gazivode and the Hydroelectic station on it. So they protest against the training of the Kosovo special forces in the area of the Gazovodskaya HES.

According to the Serbs, the security forces from Kosovo received reinforcements from Albania.

Earlier Serbian President Alexander Vučić, who is also the country's supreme commander, ordered to put the entire Serbian army on high alert, RTS reports. The order was transferred to the Chief of the General Staff of the Serbian Armed Forces.

As you know, about 60 special forces from Kosovo entered the territory adjacent to the lake, which supplies water to the Gazikode hydroelectric power station on the border of Serbia and Kosovo. Then they occupied the Center for Ecology and Sports in the village of Zubin Potok. According to the Serbian police, Serbs "who did not commit any offenses" were detained.

After the seizure of the hydroelectric power station, the president of Kosovo took a boat ride on Lake Gazivode. The head of the Kosovo Police and the Minister of Finance came with him.

Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008. As of early 2018, the status of Kosovo was recognized by 111 of the 193 UN member states. Serbia does not recognize the status of the republic. China and Russia, as permanent members of the Security Council, block Kosovo's accession to the UN.
