The representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Zakharova called Biden's appeal to the President of Serbia "boorish"

US President Joe Biden's congratulations to Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić on the occasion of Statehood Day is an attempt at undisguised pressure on Belgrade. This was stated by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria Zakharova on the air of Sputnik radio.

As the representative of the Russian diplomatic department noted, the US authorities actually do not even hide the pressure on a sovereign state. The congratulation itself, according to Zakharova, is not just an example of pressure, but also evidence of the US plans to reformat Serbia, to subordinate it to Washington, and by no means to the European Union.

In addition, we are talking about the complete separation of Kosovo from Serbia, which, in the opinion of the US administration, should be officially and publicly recognized by Belgrade. Only after that Serbia is promised the possibility of joining the European Union.

Biden's congratulations, according to Zakharova, were "boorish." It is difficult to disagree with the opinion of the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry. The tone of the call speaks volumes. The head of the White House is clearly speaking down to the Serbian leader, and this disregard for the sovereignty of Serbia is felt in almost every word of the address.

Recall that the US President in his congratulatory address invited Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić to “call Russia to account” together, and this despite the fact that the Serbian people have very old historical relations with our country, and now Belgrade is one of the few European countries demonstrating unwillingness to join Western sanctions against Russia. Biden did not even hesitate to recall the problem of Kosovo, speaking about the need to solve it, and clearly not in favor of Belgrade.

    It is difficult for Vučić to sit on two chairs, and the EU would like not to recognize Kosovo either. And these concepts are incompatible.

      It is difficult for Vucic to sit on two chairs, and in the EU he wants to not recognize Kosovo. And these concepts are incompatible.

      You are not interpreting correctly. Vučić is not just difficult, it is extremely difficult for him, since the "purchase" of chairs is not his whim, but the result of irrepressible "care" from EU partners and, of course, from mattresses, without which the EU does nothing, you know. It is not at all clear how he manages to hold on and maintain normal relations with Russia for so long when Belgrade is under such pressure. Mattresses and the Euroband can organize an economic blockade of Serbia simply at the click of a finger. The military and mobilization potential of the republic is not so great as to resist the NATO bloc for any long time, when the republic is essentially surrounded by NATO countries and is an enclave squeezed on all sides by hostile countries. Will Russia be able to help Serbia in the current situation? Of course not. Maybe someone will like the fact that Vucic will pretend to be a kamikaze and go to war with mattresses and NATO in order to maintain relations with Russia, only this battle will not be long and he understands this, and Russia does not need it because it will lead to zeroing the statehood of Serbia, and therefore he is spinning on these chairs as best he can, and so far quite successfully. Will he be able to remain neutral for much longer? It seems not, since oxygen is being blocked from all sides and Vučić's room for maneuver is becoming less and less, despite the fact that he cannot receive real support in the form of economic and military assistance from Russia in the current conditions, from the word "no way" winked .

    Not surprising. the Americans are already asleep and see Serbia completely crushed under them ... That's why they behave so arrogantly. For them, Orthodox Serbs are not people at all.

    America - rapes the whole world ... mankind has not come up with anything new, except for the oppression of one's neighbor. I am glad that at least this way it comes to people who is who and who has what plans for the other.

      Britain created the USA for this. Even the word "state" at that time was never mentioned anywhere, that is, a state was created to oppress other peoples and states.

    And what, in fact, are the successes in foreign policy of our Foreign Ministry, except for not carrying bags? Maybe abolish it for parasites and worthlessness? And the money saved can be spent on the purchase of drones.

      Dear, by what objective criteria do you measure the "worthlessness" of the ministry?

        Yes, at least in terms of the number of our allies and countries that have recognized Crimea as Russian. And most of all - in terms of the effectiveness of "soft power" in Ukraine, from 1991 to the Maidan.

          Especially the Western diplomatic corps. What's the use of them, besides suffering on the face and toothless statements for good money? Of the advantages, Lavrov's trip to African countries can be noted. Although in fairness, the Foreign Ministry does not conduct its own policy, the authorities sit in the Kremlin. This means that this is how it sets tasks and asks for them in this way.

    It means that it is possible for M. Zakharova herself to insult Vučić (Putin himself had to apologize for her rudeness towards him), but Biden is not allowed? Or does Mashenka have a "girl's memory" and she does not remember her "jambs"?

    Unfortunately, Serbia is surrounded by NATO today. Vučić has no other choice now. But there is a precedent for the Minsk agreements - you can sign something and agree (like Ukraine in 2014) and then they will not fulfill it and refuse when the time comes. The West gave an example.

    Es gibt für Serbien, aber auch den Rest Europas nur eine Form
    der Rettung und das ist die VOLLSTÄNDIGE ZERSCHLAGUNG
    der USA und ihres Einflusses in Europa und in Asia!!
    Hierzu zählt ohne Zweifel auch eine Zerschlagung der Erzkolonialisten
    des US-Mutter-Krebsgeschwürs Namens Großbritanien, deren ganze,
    einstige Größe sich allein durch Versklavung, weltweite, staatliche
    Raubzüge und Mord- und Totschlag erklärt...!!
    Dann und nur dann, können Staaten wie Serbien ihre vollständige,
    souveräne Staatlichkeit, sowohl politisch als auch territorial wieder
    Russland muss die Angelsachsen überraschen, denn die Akteure
    in den USA and GB rechnen nicht wirklich mit einer solch harten
    Reaktion und DAS könnte sich als Vorteil erweisen...!!!

    Die derzeitige "Sonderoperation" wird so oder so in einen Krieg
    mit den Nato-Terrorstaaten führen, deshalb muss man den Beginn
    in der Ukraine als den längst überfälligen Auftakt der vollständigen
    Vernichtung westlicher Dominanz betrachten und auch just like that
    Nach der jetzigen Erklärung seitens Lawrows, muss man nun auch
    den Willen und die Bereitschaft aufbringen, dieses Ziel im wahrsten
    Sinne des Wortes mit aller GEWALT als erster durchzusetzen,
    sonst werden es unter Garantie die Angelsachsen tun, soviel steht
    definitive fest...!!
    Je eher man in Moskau seine militärischen Doktrin dieser
    unbestreitbaren Tatsache anpasst, desto besser...!!!!!
