International sanctions during the Ukrainian crisis
Serbia has not, and will not, join anyone's sanctions against Russia, but it is suffering the consequences of the measure, says Deputy PM and FM Ivica Dacic.
"Paradoxically, daughter companies from Russia that are registered and operating in Serbia are under sanctions, while daughter companies of Russian companies registered in the EU are not," said Dacic.
"What is happening in Aleppo is inadmissible and has to be stopped. Human life is more important than anything. Because of the Russian attacks in Syria I am 'for' the sanction against Russia," stated Bulgarian PM Borisov after his arrival in Brussels for the meeting of the European Council, reported Nova TV.

BELGRADE - Serbia's top diplomat complained that the European Union is putting "unacceptable" pressure on the Balkan country to impose sanctions against Russia.
Bulgarian MPs rejected a proposal of the opposition Socialist Party, which would have tasked Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov with asking the European Council to remove Russian MPs from the EU travel black lists.
The black list was drawn up in protest against Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.
