Serbia owes nothing to Russia, since in 1992 it took part in the imposition of sanctions against Belgrade. In addition, the Russian Federation armed Croatia and helped the independence of Montenegro, thus contributing to the disintegration of the once united Republic of Yugoslavia. Alexander Vučić spoke about this the day before.
At the same time, Serbia does not plan to impose sanctions against Russia, as it is itself under Western sanctions and moral duty will not allow the Serbs to act in a similar way. Belgrade will, as far as possible, evade sanctions against Moscow.
We can endure until our vital and existential interests are threatened
- said the Serbian President in an interview with the RTS channel.
The head of Serbia also touched upon what is happening in Ukraine. In his opinion, the situation in the region remains difficult, the warring parties are suffering heavy losses. The fighting does not appear to end next year, and the winter of 2023-2024 will be the worst in the history of the world.
Along with this, Vucic considers it necessary to accelerate the granting of Serbian citizenship to people from Ukraine, Russia and other countries, since there is a shortage of labor in Serbia.
