A reception was organized at the Russian Embassy in Serbia, marking Russia Day, a national holiday established on the occasion of the adoption of the Declaration on State Sovereignty of the Russian Federation. The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, was among the guests.
“There is no indication of a change in the consistent position of the presidents of Serbia and Belgrade, and above all, in what is crucial. We are absolutely convinced that there will be no recognition of Kosovo and that there will be no change in cooperation with Russia,” said Russian Ambassador, H.E. Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko, addressing those gathered at the reception on the occasion of Russia Day.
Greeting the guests, the Russian ambassador reminded of the words of President Putin that Russia Day is first and foremost a holiday of national and people’s unity that symbolises loyalty to patriotism and that it is a sacred heritage.
