Political analysts warn Kosovo independence could spark regional problems

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warns that Kosovo could signal "the end of Europe".

This piece from the Russian press talks with a few political analysts on Kosovo's impending declaration of independence. Its particularly interesting since little has been mentioned in the Western press about the possible impact Kosovo could have on other international relations. The consensus of these analysts though is Kosovo is likely to spark other claims of independence in Europe and beyond. Kosovo's future - in their opinion - is also likely to be a troubled one and that the region could become a haven for organized crime, and in the worst case, terrorists.
