Head of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Serbia Emanuele Giaufret said that, since Russia’s invasion on Ukraine, EU members have shown unity and determination to adopt six packages of sanctions against Russia, Fonet reported.

Giaufret said that this sometimes came with a high price for European citizens but that it had to be done in order to preserve peace, stability and democracy.

We welcome the fact that our partners in the Western Balkans, including Serbia, in international forums joined the EU and clearly condemned Russia’s aggression on Ukraine, Giaufret told a conference of the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy (BCSP).

Of course, we would like to see Serbia demonstrate EU values in these difficult times and to align with EU positions, while this would also be a good opportunity to strengthen ties within the European family, Giaufret added.
