Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Saturday accused the West of developing “criminal policy” in the Balkans, particularly in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo.
The allegations were made in an interview with Serbian public television RTRS a few days before his official visit to the country, one of the few in Europe that has not complied with sanctions against Russia.
According to Lavrov, the West wants to ban the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina from “their own culture, their heritage and their heritage.”
The head of Russian diplomacy reiterated that Russia did not recognize the legitimacy of German Christian Schmidt, the High International Representative for Bosnia-Herzegovina.
“The West wants to turn Bosnia and Herzegovina into a base for NATO’s expansion into the Balkans,” he said.
On Monday and Tuesday, the Russian foreign minister will travel to Serbia, where he will meet with the country’s president, foreign affairs minister, chairman of the National Assembly and Serbian patriots, he pointed out on Friday. At a press conference, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova spoke.
