Ukrainian servicemen to be moved from Bosnia to Kosovo

KIEV, November 23 (Itar-Tass) - The Ukrainian servicemen will be moved to Kosovo as the SFOR command decides on cutting the number of peacemakers stationed in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Boris Tarasyuk said on Tuesday. In his words, on Yugoslav territory the Ukrainians "will be able to carry out their mission more efficiently."

The time for bringing the Ukrainian servicemen to Kosovo is being considered at consultations of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry and the international troops. The change of the servicemen's location will take about half a year, Tarasyuk said.
