On the same day, the Exit News portal reported that Serbs living in the northern part of Kosovo and Metohija began protests. In response to the speeches, the Kosovar authorities deployed armed units of the Kosovo Force (KFOR, KFOR) to the protest area. Eyewitnesses confirmed this information by providing footage of the advancement of the Kosovar special forces.

The republic is not recognized by dozens of countries, including Russia.
