All of them expect their conditions to improve once the status is settled. Kosovo has been administered by the United Nations since NATO airstrikes in 1999 ended a brutal Serbian crackdown on ethnic Albanian insurgents. A UN plan that proposes internationally supervised independence for Kosovo has been rejected by Serbia, with strong support from Russia, a permanent member of the Security Council with veto power.
