Hundreds of protesters hit the streets in Belgrade on Sunday, in a religious march demanding that Kosovo remains 'a part of Serbia'.

Footage shows activists marching with icons, crosses and Serbian colours, while also performing prayers and various rites. Speaking during an interview, a protester said "I came here to support the efforts of the Serbian people so that our holy land of Kosovo and Metohija remains part of the beautiful and glorious Serbia."

Another protester added "Our holy Kosovo was covered in blood and left to us as descendants to defend it, and there is no surrender."

Activists also expressed support for Russia saying "If we don't come to our senses and lose Kosovo, far from it, we won't be able to preserve these borders that we have even for six months. And may God save our Russian brothers; we are all fighting for the same thing."

The protest comes amid tensions between Serbia and Kosovo, which Belgrade regards as part of Serbia.
