Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic told reporters in the western town of Cacak on Friday that her government would provide aid to the farmers who suffered damages from the bad weather.

She said the Agriculture Ministry is investing efforts to help farmers and added that other ministries would join in if needed. Western Serbia is known for its raspberry farmers who are claiming to have suffered up to 80 percent damage on their crops because of storms and snow.  

Speaking at the opening of a start-up centre, Brnabic said the Agriculture Ministry had been giving subsidies to farmers to help them pay insurance on their crops.
