The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, stated today that Serbia suffers a lot because of the non-imposition of sanctions on Russia, and that life would be ten times better if it did, but that it will not, because it pursues an independent policy.
He said it was easy for many politicians to say they were against imposing sanctions on Russia.
“My aunt is also against and my father is against it, so what does that have to do with running the country,” Vucic said on Prva TV.
He explained that Serbia currently has no access to the capital market, that loans are more expensive and that a seven percent interest rate loan is now being offered, as he noted at the time of “those who robbed the country”, and that refinancing loans is difficult. which will ultimately affect salaries and pensions.
“Everyone will say that Vučić announces the imposition of sanctions. No, we will fight as long as we can to keep our policy and we are pursuing that policy not because we have something from not imposing sanctions. Because I will listen to experts “While we are losing billions on this, not to mention the smaller arrival of direct investments, and that seven American producers and actors refused to come and make films because we did not impose sanctions on Russia,” said Vucic.
He reiterated that Serbia knows how unfair the sanctions are and that Serbia is doing all this out of respect for rights, but also said that the people should know that the state is losing a lot due to not imposing sanctions on Russia.
