Serbian Minister of Defense called the riots in the country an attempt to start a civil war

The riots of the last two days in Serbia are an attempt to seize power and provoke civil war. This was stated by Serbian Defense Minister Alexander Vulin on Thursday, July 9.

“We have terrible violence in the streets, we have an attempt to coup, we have an attempt to seize power by force and provoke civil war in Serbia. It cannot be described or explained in any other way. There is no reason to set the Parliament on fire, to set the City Hall on fire in Novi Sad, to attack the police, to beat people in the streets,” the press service of the Defense Ministry quoted Wulin as saying.

At the moment, he said, political stability and security are under threat.

According to the minister, the protests were not random, but coordinated and carefully prepared.

“The point of all this is to overthrow the government, to do it through violence, to carry out a coup d’├ętat. As a citizen of this country, I am interested in the establishment of law and order, and that anyone who has raised his hand against a police officer or put someone’s life, property or security in danger must be held accountable,” Woolin concluded.
