Sergeyev to Visit Bosnia




MOSCOW -- Defense Minister Igor Sergeyev plans to travel to Bosnia on Aug. 7 to meet Russian peacekeepers there, a spokesman said Thursday.


About 200 Russian paratroopers stationed in Bosnia made international headlines in June when they raced into Kosovo ahead of NATO to secure the airport in the capital, Pristina.


Prime Minister Sergei Stepashin and Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov are expected to make a trip to the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo on Friday to attend an international summit on the Balkans.
