Aleksandar Vucic's statement to the Financial Times that the opening of Rio Tinto's lithium mine could be in 2028 is, for the leader of the "Kreni-Pokreni" movement, Savo Manojlovic, "the price he pays for the international community turning a blind eye to the election fraud."

Manojlovic believes that the „green light“ that Vucic gave to Rio Tinto „pushes Serbia into conflicts and divisions“.

„Regardless of political and ideological differences, everyone must stand by the people whom they want to displace from their land and by the scientists who defend Serbia with facts. The vision of Serbia is not a mining colony from which 10,000 young and educated people leave every year, but a dignified country where young people return,“ Manojovic wrote on the X platform.

In 2022, Serbia stopped the Jadar project worth 2.4 billion dollars after massive environmental protests.

If completed, the project could provide 90 percent of Europe’s current lithium needs and help make Rio Tinto the leading lithium producer, Reuters points out.

The Kreni-Promeni movement has collected 30,000 signatures for a people’s initiative demanding that parliament pass a law to stop lithium exploration in the country. The signatures were submitted to the National Assembly, but the Assembly never discussed it.
