Moscow: Opposition should reveal material as soon as possible

MOSCOW, Thursday - Moscow considers that, in order to clear up the situation, the Democratic Opposition of Serbia should as soon as possible make public the election materials for which they had claimed proved the first round victory of Vojislav Kostunica. According to Beta, unnamed Russian diplomats thought that such a gesture would considerably clear up the situation and that in that case the authorities would have to recognise the defeat of their candidate President Slobodan Milosevic. At the same time, it would be an undeniable proof for the international community as well, Russian diplomats claimed. "The difference in the votes is too big for anybody to doubt Kostunica's victory and the mood of the society in general. It should be proven as soon as possible that Kostunica won more than fifty per cent of the votes," it was added in Moscow.
