"If we did this today, an analogy would be drawn to Kosovo. They would say that under the same principle, Kosovo is independent and we do not have a right to fight for it anymore. I believe that every sane person in Russia, or any other country, understands this," Vucic told Russia’s Rossiya 24 TV channel late on Friday.
Vucic also several times emphasized that the relations between Moscow and Belgrade remained good, adding that Serbia would not support any anti-Russian sanctions.
Crimea became a part of Russia as a result of a referendum in 2014, where over 97 percent of the voters supported the move. However, the reunification was opposed by Kiev and the West, which introduced sanctions against Russia. Russia, in its turn, responded by imposing food embargo on the states that had targeted it with the restrictions.
Kosovo proclaimed its independence from Serbia in 2008. However, Belgrade still considers Kosovo a part of the Serbian territory. Notably, Moscow has supported Belgrade by not recognizing the independence of Kosovo.
