Following the latest unilateral moves made by Priština against the Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija, the Serbs have decided to display their dissatisfaction via handing out licence plates bearing the number of the Resolution No. 1244 that was passed in the United Nations. This is yet another of many attempts by the Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija to bring attention to the infringement of their human rights. As a reminder, the authorities in Priština have made a decision which stipulates that any individual that shows up attempting to cross at the administrative crossing with a personal ID document issued by the Serbian authorities would be provided with a declaration form to temporarily replace the use of the ID document. The declaration form will create a basis for movement in the territory of Kosovo* and for use in state institutions — said the announcement from Priština.

Apart from that, a decision has been made to provide another opportunity, as said recently, for the citizens, mostly in the north, who have licence plates issued by Serbia but with the designations of cities in Kosovo and Metohija, to switch back to licence plates issued by the Republic of Kosovo*. There have also been threats from Priština that all vehicles without plates issued by the Republic of Kosovo* would be confiscated starting on October 1, 2022, regardless of whether the vehicles are privately or publicly owned.
