"Serbia remains a rare Russian ally in Europe. Belgrade wants to join the European Union, but has refused to impose West-backed sanctions on Russia, a historic Slavic and Orthodox Christian friend" (AP).

Russia's top security official on Wednesday urged closer cooperation from Serbia, part of Moscow's efforts to boost its influence in the Balkan country.
Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of President Vladimir Putin's Security Council, asked Serbia to sign a "memorandum of understanding" on security next year to pave the way for "consultations on regular basis."

The President of the Republic of Serbia T. Nikolic said Patrushev that "Serbia had no intention of imposing sanctions on Russia as that would have grave and very harmful consequences for Serbian interests and erode the friendship with Russia."

I think that the former director of the Russian intelligence service (FSB) doubt the sincerity of the President Nikolic (member Vucic's party without membership card ).

More than 150 members of the Ivanovski Battalion of Russia's Airborne Troops (VDV) are due to arrive in Serbia for a joint military exercise.
The Russians will participate in the exercise, dubbed "Slavic Brotherhood 2016," together with Serbian soldiers. They will also be joined by members of the Belarus military.
The drill will be taking place near Belgrade November 2-15. Beside the VDV troops, Russia is sending three Il-76MD planes with over 50 soldiers, members of the military-transport aviation.
Sputnik reported this on Monday, citing a statement issued by the Russian Ministry of Defense Gen. Shoigu.
In addition, three BMD-2 armored vehicles, a Tachyon drone, and four ATVs will also arrive in Serbia for the purposes of the exercise.
The first "Slavic Brotherhood" drill was held last year near Novorossiysk, RF.
The Serbian Army announced earlier that this year's "Slavic Brotherhood" represent a continuation of the cooperation between the "Spetznaz" and Serbia's Special Brigade, that started in 2014 with the "SREM 2014" exercise.

TASS: In a two-day visit to Serbia, the Russian FM Sergei Lavrov.
Russia said that the Serbian Railways approved a loan of 800 million dollars

Serbian PM Vucic welcomed the Russian Minister Lavrov. But Vučić looks like it was at the funeral (video).  :o

SPUTNIK:As a token of support, Russia will give Serbia six MiG-29 planes as a gift, and the three stages of upgrading them will cost us 180-230 mln euros, PM Aleksandar Vucic said after a meeting with Russian Defence Minister Gen. Sergey Shoygu Wednesday.

If you calculate the costs of buying such planes, you will see they would cost us around 600 mln euros, he said.
This will dramatically improve the Serbian Armed Forces' capabilities - to an extent that they will be like a different army from now on, he said.
We also got 30 T72S tanks, 30 BRDM-2 combat reconnaissance/patrol vehicles and 14.5 mm cannons as a gift, Vucic said.
Air defense system "Buk2" will delivered 2018 ?

Croatia on Friday lifted its veto on the opening of Chapter 26 (education and culture) in Serbia's EU accession talks, Croatian Foreign Minister Davor Ivo Stir told a press conference in Zagreb.
"The conditions have been met for us to be able to suspend our reservations over Chapter 26 and I want to say that, as part of Chapter 23, we will be watching the fulfilment of all obligations regarding national minorities, with emphasis on the Croat minority," Stir said.
Zagreb's decision to lift the veto came after the Serbian Ministry of Education signed earlier in the day annexes to a memorandum of cooperation with the national textbook publisher and representatives of Serbia's seven national minorities that have access to education in their mother tongues.
The annexes will ensure an additional 84 textbooks in minority languages, including 18 in Croatian.

Jun 2001: 16. and 17.
For the first time in history, Serbia has visited Russia's head of state - President of RF Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.




In Belgrade Putin met with Federal President V. Kostunica ( Pro-Western Democratic Opposition of Serbia) and later the Russian President visited Russian troops in Kosovo ( KFOR ).

On this day 1923. Yugoslav King Aleksandar Karadjordjevic, after the defeat of the White Army in the civil war in Russia, receives over
44000 Russian refugees who had fled from the terror of the Bolsheviks (Communists), led by "Lenin", "Trotsky", "Stalin" and other killers and red psychos.
Refugees from Russia were for the most part settled in Serbia and that they were elite: officers, priests, professors of music, architects, teachers, doctors ....

 

King and Government in Belgrade over posters told to the people: "Let`s help Russians and that way we help ourselves".


They built a Russian Home in downtown of Belgrade.
