According to Serbian President Aleksandr Vucic, the country will be guided by its own interests in the issue of imposing sanctions against Russia.
The Serbian President, answering a question about the termination of the European dialogue with countries that did not join the sanctions against the Russian Federation, said that the countries of the European Union (EU) are “powerful and strong.”
“But we are weaker and smaller, and they can do whatever they want, and we will make decisions in accordance with our interests,” Vucic commented on the imposition of sanctions.
Earlier, a member of the European Parliament from Belgium, Johan Van Overtveldt, said that Serbia’s support for Russia does not correspond to the course of the European Union, so it is worth reconsidering the expediency of financial assistance to the country as a candidate for EU membership. According to him, Serbia received 1.5 billion euros from the European Union from 2014 to 2020 and 122 million euros on December 15, 2021.
