Details: When journalists asked Selaković about the sham referendums in Ukraine, he said that Serbia cannot recognise the results of those referendums, given [both]international legal principles and its own interests.
Quote from Selaković: "First of all, we are firmly committed to upholding the principles of international law and the UN Charter, and secondly, it would be completely contrary to our state and national interests, as well as to our policy of preserving territorial integrity, sovereignty and the principles of inviolability of [state] borders."
Details: Serbia categorically refuses to recognise the independence of the Republic of Kosovo.
Aleksandar Vučić, President of Serbia, said that any attempts on behalf of the West to remove Russia from the UN Security Council would "destroy international order". His government is also opposed to imposing sanctions on Russia.
