The ambassador also mentioned the Serbian mercenaries fighting on the side of the Russian armed formations in Donbas.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia accused the Ukrainian ambassador in the intentions to harm the friendly relations between Moscow and Belgrade. Alexandrovych can be expelled out from Serbia and called persona non-grata.
