He stated that the attack and yesterday’s stoning of the church of St. Petka in Kosovska Vitina were not isolated incidents, but that it was a series of ethnically motivated attacks on Serbs, their property and SOC temples in Kosovo and Metohija.
Petković emphasized that the incident in the village of Dubrava was “a drop that overflowed the glass” and that it was the fifth attack on the property of the Pumpalović family, and that the church of St. Petka in Kosovska Vitina was stoned on the same day.
“This is the eleventh attack on the temples and monasteries of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Kosovo and Metohija. After only a few hours, the latest attack on the family houses of Radoje and Milan Pumpalovic from Dubrava took place.”, said Petkovic.
He noted that many are “pretending to be naive” and asking why Serbs are not returning to Kosovo and Metohija, noting that Pristina has not provided and does not provide conditions for the return of Serbs to the southern province, and that the rate of return of displaced persons to Kosovo and Metohija is the lowest in the world.
Petkovic said that the second reason was that the Serbs who returned were intimidated and expelled by burning and breaking into their houses and stealing their property.

He warned that these were not isolated incidents, as he usually represents the Kosovo police, but a series of ethnically motivated attacks on Serbs, their property and SOC temples.
Petković emphasized that such incidents should be stopped, stating that 11 temples and churches in Kosovo and Metohija have been broken into and attacked in the last month and a half, and added that incidents occur mainly during major holidays in order to further disturb the Serbian people in Kosovo and Metohija. .
He assessed that the policy of impunity by Pristina encourages Albanian extremists to continue attacking Serbs, their houses and temples, and that Albanian extremism directed against Serbs is further fueled by daily war-mongering policies from Pristina and speeches against Belgrade, the Serbian people in Kosovo and Metohija, dialogue and community formation.
