“Serbs kiss the Chinese flag”: Western media about the failure of European solidarity


Serbia, as part of Europe, has the right to expect assistance from Brussels in the fight against coronavirus, but other states provide support to the country. So, when an airplane from China with the necessary protective equipment on board landed in Belgrade, President Alexander Vucic kissed the Chinese flag, according to the European division of the international agency Associated Press.


In Serbia, which is an EU candidate, many policy They talk about the inability of the European Union to influence the situation with the pandemic and rely on the help of a country like China. Fortunately, China really supplies everything necessary for Belgrade. Thanksgiving billboards in support of Chinese President Xi Jinping are hung all over the country. There was also a proposal to erect a monument in honor of the friendship of Belgrade and Beijing. Vučić himself has repeatedly called the Chinese leader "brother."

There is no European solidarity, and only China has been able to help

- said the President of Serbia earlier, declaring a state of emergency in the country, which expanded his authority in the fight against the epidemic.

When the first plane with the necessary protective equipment from China landed in Belgrade on March 21, we realized that we were not alone in this struggle. Now we are optimistic

- said Vučić.


Chinese assistance to Serbia is not limited to the supply of medical equipment. China's total investment in the economy countries make up about 6 billion euros. These are loans for the construction of new highways and railroads, contracts for equipment for 5G networks and other infrastructure projects.

    - Figase ... - What will Serbia do with that kind of money ... - If only our oligarchs would like this ... - they would instantly be "divided" among themselves ...
    - Well, but in general, for Russia, all this does not bode well ... - China is never so simply engaged in "patronage" ... - China cuts off centuries-old contacts between Russia and Serbia ... - Most likely, very soon, and its weapons (on credit) will deliver to Serbia and open its own enterprises in Serbia; will buy up on the vine all the Serbian agricultural and its processing ...

    - Yes, this "basketball president" will drive Serbia into a tough dependence on China ...
    - Russia had a real ally in Europe - this is Serbia ... - And now Russia has lost this ally too - only a "well-wisher" and a "temporary partner" remained ... - China got to Serbia ... - China takes Serbia away from Russia ...
