Serbia to not join penalties regime against Russia


(MENAFN) Serbia's interior minister, Aleksandar Vulin, has claimed that the West must apologise to Serbia instead of making it a "NATO foot soldier" in the confrontation with Russia. Belgrade won't allow itself to be drawn into "other people's wars," he said on Saturday's morning program of Serbia's Pink television.

Vulin declared that Serbia respects the territorial integrity of Ukraine but would not join the penalties regime against Russia owing to its long-standing close and cordial connection with Moscow. Serbia's position on the current conflict between Moscow and Kiev is " very clear," he added.

The deputy prime minister, Zorana Mihajlovic, had earlier claimed that a potential future Serbian cabinet must be more " specific " in its stance on the war. The interior minister was replying to her comments.

Vulin questioned rhetorically, defending the stance taken by his administration, “do we want to be part of the West’s conflict with Russia? Do we want to forget all these decades in which Russia supported us? Do we want to forget all these centuries of Slavic brotherhood?”
