"Throughout and immediately after the formal end of the Kosovo conflict and cessation of NATO bombardment of FR Yugoslavia in 1999, a great number of Serbs and other non-Albanians from Prizren and other regions of Kosovo were forced to flee for refuge to other parts of the country. On the report of respective estimates of certain international organizations (UNHCR, ICRC) about 200, 000 persons were forcibly displaced into the parts of Serbia outside Kosovo. Internally Displaced Persons ( hereinafter identified as IDPs) from Kosovo, being persons who remain within the borders of their country of origin, at least formally retain civil and other rights they had before the exile, appertaining to them based on their citizenship."
