Serbian Veterans Movement president Željko Vasiljević said that May 5 would see “the establishment of a first uniformed Christian militia squad, comprised of war veterans from all over Serbia.”

“A hundred veterans will attend the Assembly”, he said, and added that the number of “eager volunteers” in Serbia already topped 5,000 mark.
