Letter: Call Russian bluff

Sir: We must stop kow-towing to Russia and call Moscow's bluff over its continued support for the fascist regime in Belgrade.

All through the killing fields of Bosnia and now Kosovo Russia has sought to prevent the international community from taking the decisive action necessary to save lives and bring about peace.

The other members of the UN Security Council, the EU and Nato should ignore Russian threats of veto and "dire consequences" as nothing more than the blether of a former superpower turned basket-case whose Balkan "policy" has descended into Slav-nationalist paranoia.
