Vulin, former Minister of Interior of Serbia and leader of the “Movement of Socialists”, announced that he was putting pressure on Belgrade
BELGRADE, 2 December – RIA Novosti. Alexander Vulin, Serbia’s former Interior Minister and leader of the “Movement of Socialists”, made a statement about external pressure on Belgrade before he took office as director of the Security and Information Agency (the country’s non-military intelligence agency, BIA).
On 26 October, deputies of the Serbian parliament (parliament) voted unanimously to approve the new structure of the country’s government, headed by Prime Minister Ana Brnabic. Vulin, the former head of the Interior Ministry and, before that, Defense Minister, did not enter the Cabinet, warning that due to his patriotic and Russian-friendly position, Western intelligence services and embassies are campaigning against him. There were also suggestions in the media that he would head up counterintelligence.
“My candidacy for the directorate of the BIA is proof that President Aleksandar Vucic does not bow to pressure and foreigners do not make decisions in this country. Maybe it seems to some that he has surrendered to force and threats. But Aleksander Vucic is just a man who listens and loves Serbia.”
“The President let the influential ambassadors and their bosses think they can make decisions for a month. I hope they have come to the conclusion. Aleksandar Vučić is the free leader of a free people as long as he rules Serbia as president.” President of all Serbs, foreigners will not decide. In the last press release, I had to say on behalf of President Vučić and Serbia, we are ruled by a free man,” said Vulin.
At the end of October, MEP Viola von Cramon reacted sharply to official Belgrade requests to support sanctions against Russia, saying that “the MEP wants to break our centuries-old friendship with a consistent ally.” In early October, he noted that the EU should blame its blackmail and pressure on Belgrade, not Russia, for the decline in support for its policy in Serbia, and also pointed out that the EU is against the EU with its eighth package of sanctions. The Russian Federation has announced its first package of sanctions against Serbia, which depends on Russia’s supply of oil through Croatia.
In September, the former Serbian minister became the author of a statement stating that “expanding cooperation between Serbia and the Russian Federation is the policy of the future and Ukraine should consider the sincerity of the West.”
