Serbian President Vučić urged to protect the country’s gas transportation system.

Serbian President Vučić urged to protect the country’s gas transportation system.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić, in the light of reports of threats to the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, called on the Ministry of Internal Affairs and special services to strengthen the security of the country’s gas transmission system (GTS).

On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin, at an operational meeting with permanent members of the Security Council, said that the Kyiv regime was trying to blow up one of the sections of the Turkish Stream gas transmission system.

“No one in the media noticed, but they write that President Putin said today that someone was trying to destroy the Turkish Stream and interrupt gas supplies. If this happened, I don’t know what we would do, it would mean that we would stay without electricity, gas-fired power plants would not work in Novi Sad, Zrenjanin and Pančevo. This would mean that there is no gas, nothing, despite our largest reserves in history,” Vučić told.

The Serbian President recalled that only Belgrade consumes 3 million cubic meters of gas per day.

“I spoke with the Agency for Security and Information, I will talk with the police so that helicopters are raised and protected from potential sabotage. I’m afraid that what happened was in the Black Sea, and not here, but we will do everything we can,” stressed the Serbian leader.
