Serbian President Vučić warns of the worst winter in Europe since 1945.

Serbian President Vučić warns of the worst winter in Europe since 1945.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said at a special meeting of the parliament that the country, like Europe, is facing the most difficult winter since the Second World War.

Vucic recalled that the Serbian authorities do not recognize the independence of the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo, and “this is not some kind of special courage.” He called everything that was said at the parliamentary session a “fountain of desire.”

“… This is so far from reality, from what the Albanians think and desire, and even further from what our European and Western partners want,” the Serbian leader stressed.

“I want people to know that the next 6.5 months – until March 31 – will be the most difficult for all of Europe after World War II … In any case, this will be one of the most difficult years for the Serbian people, Serbia and its citizens since 1945 until now,” he said.

Vučić added that in preparation for the winter period, 663 million cubic meters of gas are now reserved in the Banatski Dvor underground gas storage and in the storage facilities in Hungary, “which should be enough for two months” in Serbia.

Earlier, Vučić refused to recognize the independence of Kosovo. He stressed that Belgrade will not recognize the independence of the self-proclaimed republic under any circumstances.
