MOSCOW (Reuters) – Kosovo released a Russian national working for the United Nations on Tuesday, the United Nations mission in Kosovo said, after Moscow demanded that Pristina release him.

The Russian was detained in a Serb-populated municipality in Kosovo’s north during a police operation there.

The U.N. mission said the Russian and another U.N. staff member who was also detained had been released and were receiving treatment for injuries.
