According to a press release from his office on Tuesday, the Serbian president pointed out that this was contrary to UN Security Council Resolution 1244, the only legal framework that is in line with international law and the agreements that have been reached.
Vucic asked Ambassador Aleksandr Chepurin to alert President Vladimir Putin and the leadership of friendly Russia to the fact that Serbia and the region seem to be deliberately pushed into conflict "by someone."
"Serbia is doing nothing to cause instability, but the constant provocations will lead us to a dead-end situation to protect the Serb people in Kosovo and Metohija. Serbia must not allow the persecution of its own people," Vucic said.
Chepurin said that the issue of Kosovo and Metohija is a long-term problem for which a reasonable solution should be sought, useful for all.
He emphasized that Moscow closely monitors the development of the situation, as can be seen from the reactions of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Vucic and Chepurin also concluded that preparations President Putin's forthcoming visit to Serbia are going well.
