According to him, in order that Serbia did not recognize the entry of the Peninsula into structure of Russia in 2014, there is no reason. “Moscow supports Belgrade on the issue of Kosovo and Metohija. However, Serbia in fact does not recognize the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation. We want Belgrade refused to hypocritical policy and officially recognized the Crimea part of Russia,” said Seselj.
Earlier, on June 2, the President of Serbia Alexander Vucic explained the refusal to recognize Crimea as Russian territory. According to him, the recognition of the jurisdiction of Russia over the Crimea would mean the recognition of Kosovo’s independence. “But put yourself in our place. Who among the permanent members of the UN Security Council supports our territorial integrity? Russia. Can we shoot ourselves in the foot?” he added.
Crimea became part of Russia after the referendum in March 2014, during which most of the residents voted for reunification with Russia. After that, many Western countries have imposed sanctions against Russia, which refused to support Belgrade. However, the official results of the referendum Serbia have not yet recognized.
