Sea Route Chosen

MOSCOW -- In a cost-cutting effort, Russia will send armored vehicles and other military hardware for its peacekeepers deployed in Kosovo by sea, Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev said Tuesday.

"We have chosen the sea route proceeding from the cost-efficiency criterion,'' Sergeyev told reporters. "That will also give us good naval practice.''

He added that Russian navy ships will deliver the heavy weapons to Greece, which would offer them a "privileged'' route into Kosovo.
