Balkans |  USA: We are concerned about Wagner’s presence in Serbia

Chollet, the Undersecretary of State, said Wagner was trying to recruit troops from Serbia.

A statement came from Washington regarding elements of the Russian military company Wagner.

US Under Secretary of State Derek Chollet visited Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.

“They are trying to recruit soldiers from Serbia”

After meeting with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Chollet indicated that Wagner was trying to recruit soldiers from this country.

We expressed our concerns.

Cholet “This is not a situation that we will stand behind. I don’t know if Serbia is concerned. We have expressed our concerns. We would like to work with the governments of the countries concerned to end Wagner’s activities here or elsewhere in the world.” He said.

Invitation to Serbia: Sanctions against Russia

Cholet emphasized that Wagner had carried out atrocious activities and stressed that Serbia should impose sanctions on Russia.

Wagner operates mostly in Africa

While Wagner, which is owned by Russian oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin, is known to operate in many countries, mostly on the African continent, the Russian military company in question announced that it had set up a “friendship and cooperation center” in Serbia last month.

According to AA news, the pro-Moscow news portal RT reportedly published an announcement in the Serbian language that Wagner was looking for fighters in Ukraine and encouraged people in this direction.
