Serbian Ambassador to Moscow Miroslav Lazanski hopes that the European Union will change its approach towards Russia by the time the republic joins the EU. He also assessed Brussels’ call for Belgrade to join sanctions against Moscow.

“In connection with the appeal of the head of EU diplomacy Josep Borrell to Serbia to join the sanctions regimes as actively as possible, we can say that from the point of view of our position, sanctions are not politics, but the absence of politics, and that Serbia – this was also stated by the president. [Сербии] Alexander Vucic will never impose sanctions on the Russian Federation, “Lazanski said, quoted by Izvestia.

The diplomat added that Serbia understands what sanctions are, since the country has been subjected to them for years by Western countries.
