Kosovo Serbs pack up and leave
Thousands of Kosovo homes have been burned
By the BBC's Mike Williams
The roads out of Kosovo are full of military vehicles.
Interspersed among them are civilian cars packed with the belongings of Serbs who have decided that Kosovo is no longer their home.
One lorry passed by with a sofa and armchairs among the boxes and standing behind them, two of the family's cows.
The border of Kosovo on the road to Belgrade is marked by a bridge and as the soldiers pass under it, thundering through in their armoured personnel carriers and mobile anti-aircraft guns, they cheer, "Serbia! Serbia!" in part patriotism, in part relief at the fact that they are no longer in Kosovo.
Russians head south
Control of the province will soon pass into the hands of international peacekeepers.
Russian troops have crossed the Yugoslav border from Bosnia and they are said to be heading south towards Kosovo.
No-one is sure if they will enter the province ahead of the British and the Americans.
Nato's advance units are said to be on full alert and already low-flying jets have roared across Pristina - perhaps to test if Serbia is truly ready to relinquish control of this province.
It is now just a matter of hours before that plan becomes a reality.
