BELGRADE – Guest of honour at Victory Day Parade in Russia

Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said on Wednesday (24 June) in Moscow that it was “a great thing” that Russian President Vladimir Putin received him and the President of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, in bilateral meetings.

In a statement to reporters who accompanied him in Moscow for the Victory Day Parade, Vučić said Serbia had been given “the biggest presence” in Russian media, which was “a special honour for Serbia.”

He also stated that the participation of a unit of Guards of the Serbian Army in the parade had brought “a particular feeling of pride”, adding that “this (participation) is of exceptional importance.”

In a comment ahead of his visit to Brussels today (25 June), the president said he expected the dialogue with Kosovo to resume soon, and that “…this is not a matter of months, but weeks, or even days.” 

Other top officials who attended the parade on the Red Square in Moscow were the presidents of Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Moldova and Tajikistan, and a member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milorad Dodik.
