MOSCOW, Russia (March 6,2008) - The Bosnian Embassy in Moscow said it received a letter threatening to kill Bosnians in retaliation for Kosovo’s declaration of independence.

“You are pronounced personas non grata on the territory of Russia. We will kill your citizens in Moscow for Kosovo. Your Embassy will be destroyed by the end of 2008.,” read the Russian terrorists' letter, cited in a statement issued by a member of the Bosnian Presidency, Dr Haris Silajdzic.

According to the statement from Silajdzic's office, the letter addressed to the Bosnian Embassy in Moscow had a swastika drawn and the name of sender on the envelope.

“This threatening letter is considered as part of wide campaign which is being led lately against Bosnia in some diplomatic circles of the Russian Federation, the state media, as well as in academic circles,” Dr Silajdzic said.

The Bosnian Foreign Affairs Ministry said it will undertake all necessary measures in raising this case with the Russian government so it can provide adequate protection to the Bosnian Embassy in Moscow and its personnel.
