“Serbia will not trample on and extinguish its friendship that it has in the East, and it does not occur to us to do this. And I'm not interested in what force is exerting pressure, only the strength of Serbian interests can change our attitude, — explained Vucic.

He also indicated that there had been corresponding pressure in recent “weeks and months”. “Our strategic path” way to Europe, and if we can't understand that, then tell me what's the alternative,— President added.

Vučić also said that “there is no love in international relations, justice, I'm afraid to say, even less, and we must take care of our interests and the future,” the country's state television channel RTS reported. The President noted that Serbia is a militarily neutral country and intends to maintain this status, reforms will be carried out in order to “fight for a place in the family of European peoples.”

According to him, “provocations were staged” in Syria; and “depicted the use of chemical weapons” government of President Bashar al-Assad. “Then it turned out that it was a fake. The same fake is in Bucha,— Putin insisted.

“Listen, I talked to colleagues from Western countries often. And when they say “Bucha” to me, I ask, have you ever been to Raqqa? Did you see how this Syrian city was completely destroyed, down to the very ground, by American aircraft from above? And there, indeed, the corpses lay in ruins for months and decomposed. Nobody cared before that, nobody even noticed, — said Putin.

The plans of the United States and Ukraine to carry out an attack using chemical weapons were announced by the Russian Defense Ministry in mid-April. The department claimed that in the interests of the Pentagon, biological weapons were tested on the territory of Ukraine, and chemical weapons were planned to be sprayed from the Bayraktar drone. Kyiv turned to the company— drone manufacturer Baykar Makina with a request for the possibility of placing “attached aerosol equipment” on the UAV, the ministry added.

About a week later, on April 21, the Russian Defense Ministry spoke about an attempt by Ukrainian forces to carry out an attack with chemical weapons. According to the ministry, a container with ampoules was dropped from a drone on the positions of Russian forces, which were supposed to explode, releasing toxic substances not mentioned in the convention lists.

US President Joe Biden warned in late March that if Moscow uses chemical weapons in Ukraine, Washington will respond, and the nature of the reaction will depend on the use of these weapons. Then the White House explained that the United States ruled out the possibility of using chemical weapons. U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan added that chemical weapons would not be used by U.S. forces “under any circumstances,” but that Russia would “pay a heavy price.” . «We— adequate people. I— the president of an adequate country and an adequate people. And the father of two children. And no one has developed any chemical or any other weapons of mass destruction on my land,»,— he said in mid-March in response to data on the work of biological laboratories in Ukraine.
