Vučić announced Serbia’s commitment to lift sanctions against Russia

Date: January 31, 2023 Time: 05:53:47

Belgrade’s position has repeatedly provoked discontent in the European Union.


Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that Serbia intends to continue to adhere to the policy of waiving sanctions against Russia, and only a direct threat to national interests can force it to deviate from its chosen course.

– We had a difficult year behind us, we saw all kinds of hypocrisy, but we could also see how our position was principled and correct. We will see how far we can defend this position, in any case, not at the cost of infringing on the interests of this country, but in any case, we will not easily give up this position, the politician said in an interview on TV Prva.

Earlier, Vucic said that Belgrade was not going to impose anti-Russian sanctions, despite its attitude towards the territorial integrity of Ukraine, and also expressed great regret for the events taking place in Eastern Europe, since Serbia considers Russia so much like Ukraine as sister states. .

Belgrade’s position has repeatedly caused discontent on the part of the European Union, the country’s application for membership submitted in 2012. So far, Serbia is the only EU candidate that has not joined the sanctions against Russia. European integration is the main method of putting pressure on the Serbian authorities. Thus, in October Serbia, under pressure from the EU, supported the UN anti-Russian resolution condemning the holding of referendums and the entry of new territories into Russia.
