PRAVDA.Ru reported on September 12 that the anti-NATO website Kosovo.com was shut down. It was said that popular portal Kosovo.com, Crucified Kosovo, sticking to a pro-Serbian and anti-NATO policy, was closed. Access to the site was banned for a very long time. The same situation was with the website of Decani Monastery, Manastir Decani, in Kosovo.
This situation caused much resentment among the population. We managed to contact one of the Kosovo.com and Manastir Decani websites creators, celibate priest Savva from Decani Manastir. He said the following:
“As for our presentations on www.decani.ynet.com and www.kosovo.com, they both were inactive for the past two weeks, because our server YUNET.com had been cracked by hackers. After negotiations with YUNET.com representatives, we decided to move our websites to aother server and use the services of a new provider. We hope that the websites will reopen very soon and function normally. It is false information that the portals were shut down. We hope that the God will help us to continue our work.”
It is really unbelievable that Serbs so reservedly take the reverses of fortune. They don’t shout about the unfair attitude towards their site to the whole of the world. Moreover, there is no information about the incident at all on Kosovo.com, which has resumed its work. Today, Kosovo Serbs are a phenomenon truly. Their mode of living is unique. They are living under conditions of permanent catastrophe.
