Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia, Ivica Dacic, said that the confrontation between Russia and the West can not be called just a “cold war” anymore.
“It’s not a cold war anymore, it’s an ice war, they even want to boycott the World Cup.” said the Serbian minister.
He added that despite the current climate, Serbia will remain a loyal partner of Russia.
Earlier, 18 Western countries announced the expulsion of Russian diplomats as a reaction to the poisoning of former Colonel GRU Sergei Skripal in the British city of Salisbury. The United States is expelling 60 diplomats to Russia, 12 of which are employees of the UN mission, and close the Russian consulate in Seattle. The US claims these are intelligence officers posing as diplomats.
