Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova’s reply to a media question regarding statements made by Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic in a Bloomberg interview
Question: Do you have anything to say concerning the statement made by Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic during a Bloomberg interview to the effect that Serbia will choose EU over Russia if forced to do so?
Maria Zakharova: We have taken note of this. The Russian Ambassador to Serbia has met Ms Brnabic to ask her if this is indeed what she said. The Prime Minister replied that her words had been misinterpreted by the US agency and then provided the full text of the Bloomberg interview in which you cannot find the statement that has been attributed to her. We are satisfied with this explanation.
