Vucic reacts to Belgrade City Hall blockade, says state will deal with thugs Izvor: Tanjug/Dragan Kujundžić

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic reacted to the opposition gathering in front of Belgrade City Hall at a hastily called news conference saying that “the state will deal with bullies and thugs” and calling “the institutions of the system to do their job”.

“Women stood up in defence of their country, all institutions and beat the bullies and thugs,” he said commenting the events in front of Belgrade City Hall which happened less than an hour before his news conference.  

“Anyone in the institutions who does not dare do their job should step aside. We need institutions which respect the law and abide by it…. These ladies deserve thanks for showing that we have the strength to deal with fascism, with the people whose ideology (Dveri leader) Bosko Obradovic follows, that those of us who want a free, democratic and responsible Serbia can and have to win,” he said.  

“We weighed things to the last moment, not wanting to fall for their provocations. They are doing everything to cause an intervention by the police. The police will have to act at some moment but we want to show that they are bullies to prevent anything from happening by accident,” he said and added that the opposition will not be allowed to break into the pro-government TV Pink building during an announced protest march to that station.
