The Patriarch stayed in his vehicle for several minutes on the side controlled by the Albanian separatists, then turned back and returned towards Kuršumlija.

The information that the so-called government of Kosovo*, in the email sent to the leader of the Serbian Orthodox Church yesterday notifying him that he would not be allowed entry into Kosovo and Metohija, demanded that the Patriarch distance himself from the Serbs on the barricades as a condition of his stay in the territory of the southern Serbian province, speaks to how scandalous is this decision of the Albanian separatists.
