Crimea is to Russia what Kosovo is to Serbia, Serb politician Sanda Raskovic-Ivic said in Moscow on Friday after travelling to the peninsula. "Crimea is Russia and Kosovo is Serbia," said the leader of the Democratic Party of Serbia.

She stated that “the way Russia was baptised in Crimea, Serbia was baptised in Kosovo,” adding that “the place where the nation was baptised is its cradle and no one can take that away."

Speaking on the topic of Crimea, Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Crimea Georgi Muradov stated that “international and European interest in the peninsula has not decreased since it became a part of Russia.”

Raskovic-Ivic and Muradov's comments came during a press conference after they had returned to Moscow from Crimea, along with representatives of the Democratic Party.
