Serbia is an independent European state that was part of the former Yugoslavia. Its capital is Belgrade. It is an upper-middle-income economy. In the 1990s, Serbia went through a phase of political disorder, including the Kosovo War.
Work to extend the Turkish Stream pipeline in Serbia is expected to be finished in the coming weeks, Russian President Vladimir Putin said during a meeting with his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vučić.
The government in Belgrade said it would not change its policy towards Moscow after a video of a suspected “Russian spy” emerged online. Serbians were quick to point out their country has been riddled by NATO spies for years.
A new and strangely timed NATO video paints a flattering – and entirely fraudulent – picture of the alliance’s mission in Kosovo, a Serbian province it occupied in 1999 that now styles itself an independent state.
