European Parliament rapporteur for Serbia Vlado Bilcik MEP said on Friday that the Serbian authorities’ decision not to impose sanctions on Russia following its attack on Ukraine will define the country’s relations with the European Union.

“Everyone should understand that Serbia’s choice not to join the European Union sanctions is a defining foreign policy decision for much broader relations between the EU and Serbia,” Bilcik said in a Twitter post.

Putin’s attack against Ukraine is a watershed moment for the Western Balkans,” the MEP wrote.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said earlier that Belgrade will not impose sanctions on Russia but supports Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
