A big crowd gathered in central Belgrade in support of Russia on Friday night and protest against the regime, organised by several extreme rightist organisations.

The rally started with Russia’s and Serbia’s national anthems.

The crowd blocked traffic for 45 minutes, carried Russian and Serbia’s flags, and chanted slogans supporting Russia and Serbia-Russian brotherhood.

They booed President Aleksandar Vucic for Serbia’s ‘yes’ to the UN condemnation of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, calling him a traitor.

Damnjan Knezevic from the anti-migrant and nationalist ‘People’s Patrol’ organisation sent a message to CNN, BBC and the state RTS TV „that russophobia in Serbia is at the level of a statistical error“ and that „every Russian is a brother to every Serb.“

„No matter how much we are pressured, no matter how much they attack us, it’s a drop in the ocean for a Slavic soul,“ Knezevic said, adding that „there is no Serb who will impose sanctions on Russia and Belarus.“

The leader of the ultranationalist ‘Obraz’ (Cheek) organisation Mladen Obradovic said that „Russia is liberating the world from NATO’s threats and that Russian President Vladimir „Putin proves to be the strongest and most courageous statesman in the world.“

They warned the authorities that if Belgrade imposed sanctions on Moscow after April 3 elections, many more people would rally.

After the speeches, the gathered walked to the Russian embassy.
