This Feb. 9, 2007 file photo shows Kosovo Serbs with a banner reading: "Russia, help! ", during a protest against U.N. plan for the southern province, in the northern part of Mitrovica, Kosovo. Putin's images are plastered over walls in Serb-run, northern Kosovo and Russian flags flutter in the wind. On Tuesday Dec. 13, 2011, some 25 trucks will bring humanitarian aid from Moscow to this divided town where tens of thousands of Serbs have applied in vain for Russian citizenship in recent weeks. In adverse times, many see Russia as a salvation but beyond handouts and diplomatic support against Kosovo statehood at the United Nations, its interest in the Serbs of Mitrovica is at best marginal.
