He told daily Press that there would have been a “bloodshed” in Belgrade if the parade had not been banned.
“I’d rather they criticize me for banning the parade than for allowing a bloodshed and all security assessments show that this is exactly what would have happened. Even if we hired more than 5,000 police officers, there would have been unrests, fights and casualties,” the prime minister was quoted as saying.
According to him, foreign embassies, mainly those of western countries, would have been attacked in the riots during the Pride Parade.
The Serbian authorities decided to ban all public gatherings, including the Pride Parade, on Saturday in Belgrade.
