Russia will never use force in Kosovo: Envoy
"This [use of force] will never take place," Dmitry Rogozin said in an interview with the Vesti television channel in reply to a request to comment on his statement made at a February 22 Moscow-Brussels video conference and wrongfully interpreted by some media.

"We are not going to a spot distant from our borders with any military or force actions. There is no direct threat on Russia. There is no threat to our national interests there," Rogozin said on the air of the Vesti-24 TV channel.

Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia on Feb. 17.
