    [From the Introduction]. The Kosovo issue has reached a state of impasse in the UN Security Council, with Russia having made it clear that it would veto any resolution recognising Kosovo’s independence from Serbia, unless Serbia would agree to this, which it will not - and indeed this is now made much more difficult by its newly revised constitution. And as long as Russia takes the lead with this blocking position, China is with them too. Neither is interested in Kosovo per se, but rather in their own domestic, regional and geopolitical interests.
