District changes in 2000[edit]

Districts and municipalities of Kosovo.

Under the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), established in 1999, new districts were formed in 2000.

Serbia protested about the new territorial division and does not see it as legitimate, but by the United Nations Mission in Kosovo administration implemented it regardless of Serbia's protests, because it has such authority[citation needed] established by virtue of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244.
