Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic said that no one is asking Belgrade to decide on the crisis in Ukraine because "they know our position", which is principled and based on respect for international law.
Asked about his candidacy for the new presidential mandate, he said that it was a probable option, but that the final decision on that would be made in the next ten days.
Vucic told Tanjug that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was monitoring the events in Ukraine and reminded that Serbia’s citizens were urged to consider leaving the country.
“If necessary, we will help relocate our citizens. I hope that this will not happen,” he said.
He also said that he does not know whether the information provided by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that „mercenaries from Kosovo, Albania and BiH“ are coming to Donbas is correct, and added that he would ask Russia for additional information on the matter.
