President Aleksandar Vucic denied on Wednesday that the Russian authorities made any suggestion of forming a government with the main Serbian opposition leaders.
He told reporters in Sochi that no one in Moscow, especially not Russian President Vladimir Putin, suggested that he should form a government with Dveri leader Bosko Obradovic and Freedom and Justice Party leader Dragan Djilas as some of the media reported.
Vucic told reporters that Putin had given him a rifle owned by Serbian King Milan Obrenovic. “I got Milan Obrenovic’s original rifle which Russia bought at auction and which he (Putin) wanted to give me as a gift,” Vucic said adding that he was also given wine from Sochi. Vucic gave Putin a 19th century icon.
Vucic said he would never form a government with “the people who destroyed Serbia”.
