Events of the week in pictures: 1 – 5 July

Anomalous heat in Europe, military exercises of the Chinese Armed Forces around Taiwan, the invasion of giant slugs in Moscow, the celebration of Airborne Forces Day. These and other events — in the AiF.ru photo feed.

On July 31, the conflict between the leadership of Kosovo and the Serbian community escalated after the police of the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo closed two checkpoints (checkpoints) in the north of the region into the central part of Serbia, intending to introduce an entry ban on Serbian internal documents from August 1, and also on cars with license plates issued by the Serbian authorities. Under pressure from diplomats and protesters, the Kosovo government announced a decision to postpone the adoption of a law banning Serbian documents until 1 September. © www.globallookpress.com/Festim Beqiri/dpa/Global Look Press
