Serbian President Alexander Vučić did not receive an invitation to the inauguration of Russian President Vladimir Putin , which will be held on May 7 in Moscow. He told journalists this on April 28 in Belgrade but at the same time Vucic did not rule out that the invitation will arrive another day.
The Serbian President also stated that he sees nothing disputable about the fact that the head of the Republika Srpska, Milorad Dodik, has received his invitation to Putin’s inauguration, but he did not.
“Serbia is independent in making its decisions. The choice of Serbia is the way to the EU, friendship with Russia, China and Turkey, ” the news agency Beta quoted Vučić as saying.
Serbia should technically provide the Russian-Serbian humanitarian center in Niš with the appropriate status, according to which the Center’s employees will work in Serbia on the same terms as the embassy staff. In 2014, NATO received a diplomatic status in Serbia, after which Russia demanded the same status for its humanitarian center. The Serbian government has not yet taken a decision on it.
