The US administration has placed Aleksandar Vulin, director of Serbia’s National Intelligence Agency, the Security Information Agency, on the sanctions list for illegal shipment of arms, drug trafficking and misuse of public office.
In a statement from the US Treasury Department, it was reported that the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) imposed sanctions on Vulin, who is also the former Serbian Minister of Defense and Interior.
The statement alleged that Follin was involved in cross-border organized crime, involved in illegal drug operations and abused public office.
The statement said that Volin’s actions increased corruption in Serbia’s ruling institutions.
The statement stated that “Vulin exploited his public positions to support Russia, facilitated Russia’s activities that destabilized the security and stability of the Western Balkans, and provided the ground for Russia to increase its influence in the region.”
