Hi Mojca,
Despite being neither Hans nor Alan I could perhaps offer you the possibility of a simple workaround,

I think you could do what you need in the same way as when you put bibliographic references in a footnote.
So in your case it would be:

\startitemize
\item \dcite{citekey1}
item some random text
\item \dcite{citekey2}
\stopitemize

In any case this works for me but my bibliographic setup may be different from yours.
I hope it helps,

Best regards,
