Serbian diplomat: Military-technical cooperation with the Russian Federation helps ensure neutrality of Serbia

43

In Serbia, the issue of the further vector of foreign policy is being discussed. At the same time, in Belgrade, an increasing number of politicians and experts understand that they are not going to accept Serbia either in the EU or NATO. This is despite the fact that membership in the North Atlantic military bloc, according to statistics, is now supported by a minority of the population - less than a quarter of the respondents.

Against this background, in Serbia, a clear vector of military-technical cooperation with Russia has been identified. The situation is commented on by a Serbian diplomat, an expert on international relations and foreign policy of the country, Srechko Djukic. According to Djukic, today it is important for Serbia to maintain military neutrality. According to the diplomat, procurement can help with this. weapons at the Russian Federation.

Djukic in an interview with the Serbian news agency Tanyug:

The acquisition of military equipment from Russia is part of the concept of Serbian neutrality. If we really focused on military neutrality, then this requires protection and deterrence.

Srechko Dzhukich notes that Russian weapons and military equipment make it possible to achieve this in general, becoming an important deterrent.

Belgrade makes it clear that they do not support the NATO concept of a "threat from Russia." For this concept, at the NATO summit in London, it was already decided to allocate an astronomical amount - up to 400 billion.

The day before, in Serbia, they confirmed the early receipt from Russia of 4's Mi-35 helicopters. Also, Belgrade ordered Russia to supply the Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile and gun systems.

    Well, as far as it is clear from the latest news, not only do Russia acquire equipment and weapons from Russia ...
    But with neutrality, this is correct.

    in Serbia, a clear vector of military-technical cooperation with Russia

    Yeah, apparently that’s why the Serbs bought the French Mistral 3 instead of our air defense systems this year. And Vučić himself says that there can be no more talk about any new arms purchases. In confirmation of this, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov specifically clarified at the end of the talks between Putin and Vuchich: the question of S-400 supplies was not even raised there.

                        In 1914, at the very beginning of the First World War, the overwhelming majority of Russian officers and soldiers also hated the Germans and their "accomplices", were charged with patriotic-monarchical ideas, and the socialists (analogous to the modern orange ones) were nesting in corners or abroad.

                        Only 3 years have passed - and the same officers and soldiers who threw off caps in honor of Nicholas 2 three years ago, first made the February revolution and then the October revolution without blinking.

          do you have any idea what kind of system this is and what it includes? do you know how many missile defense systems are needed to confidently hit a target? do you represent target detection systems? do you see the region on the map? do you adequately assess the potential opponents of Serbia there? I don’t know anything about this, but there are a number of questions, such as whether our army is rearmament and whether it is possible to close the sky of Serbia without harming ourselves (by fulfilling the existing contracts), is it possible to completely close this sky, given the possibility of an enemy inflicting a massive missile strike (it seems like it already was) well and most importantly: the Serbs have not restored everything after the last bombing, and the price for a full-fledged air defense system will simply exceed the budget, so what should Borisov discuss there?

      What other S-400s for Serbia?
      Firstly, for Serbia, these are astronomical amounts.
      Secondly, the S-400 assumes the presence of advanced layered air defense.
      Thirdly, the country has not resolved disagreements with a recent adversary. She, God forbid, in which case to defend their interests with the available forces.
      Fourth, the prospect of such a shift in relations with Russia is not yet obvious. It is necessary to understand how stable such political will will be and long-term, what will be the support of the pro-Russian course among the electorate in the future.

          Yes, the armor will certainly come out more expensive than the local product.
          But his performance characteristics should be a cut above.
          Therefore, I consider this situation as:
          - A concession to European partners with which little Serbia has to reckon
          - pilot delivery to compare the characteristics of the Russian and French systems
          - decision on the final appearance of the cheaper Serbian ZRAK according to the results of comparison

They will not succeed in anything with "independence", one way or another, but they will have to decide. And, apparently, they will also join NATO sooner or later.

      "For your information, in those 3 years that you mentioned, those very patriotic charged officers disappeared into the meat grinder of war" - and now we are looking at real history, and not your pink fantasies:

      General Kornilov participated in the arrest of the Royal family.

      General Brusilov (organizer of the Brusilovsky breakthrough, yes) supported the abdication of Nicholas II.

      General Alekseev also supported Nikolai's abdication "from the throne.

      General Ruzsky - personally forced Nicholas 2 to sign the text of the abdication.

      General Denikin - supported the abdication of Nicholas 2.

      General Polivanov - supported the abdication of Nicholas II, the organizer of the transformation of the Russian army on a "democratic basis."

      These are just a few names of high-ranking military officials of the Russian Empire who went through the First World War from the very beginning and took an active part in the overthrow of the monarchy in the Russian Empire. Such is the "orange-liberoid youth", oga.
