Serbia is one of the few European countries that has not officially introduced any restrictive measures against Russia.
I must mention that there is no reason for Serbia to impose sanctions on Russia. Our two countries have historically good relations, which Russia treats with special respect.
Sanctions imposed by Western countries on Russia have led to the severance of diplomatic ties, and then economic-trade, scientific, sports, cultural cooperation and so on. Therefore, sanctions have a totalitarian character and apply to all spheres. I believe that the sanctions have the greatest impact on the severance of relations between European countries and Russia, that is, the creation of barriers between the geographically connected whole in the form of a new iron curtain.
