Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Thursday that Albanian politicians in Pristina are using the situation in Ukraine for campaigning against Serbia.

Pristina’s claims that Serbia wants to attack someone are lies – it is quite the opposite as Pristina is the one that wants to attack the north of Kosovo-Metohija, and it is preparing to kill local Serbs under the guise of fighting crime, Vucic said.

Commenting on Albin Kurti’s statement that Belgrade is pursuing an aggressive policy and may cause a conflict, Vucic said such claims were a bit ridiculous as “we have been hearing the same lies for 170 days now.”

“Thousands and thousands” of lies have been published in international media about Serbia attacking someone somewhere, Vucic said.

With such claims, Pristina is trying to disguise its intent to attack the north of Kosovo-Metohija, he said.

“They are preparing killings of our people in the north. I am saying that openly, and I am warning them against doing that… Do not kill people. We will not be killing anyone. We need peace and stability,” Vucic said.

There have also been claims Serbia would fight a war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but they turned out to be untrue, of course, he said.

“They (Pristina) are trying to use the situation in Ukraine for campaigning against Serbia. They have been doing that for 170 days now and they will continue to do that,” Vucic said.
