"Russia has always been a key partner for Serbia. It is a fact confirmed by the history. Moscow supports Belgrade regarding Kosovo and Metohija. However Serbia in fact does not recognize the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation. We want Belgrade to refuse from the hypocritical policy and officially recognize Crimea an integral part of Russia," the head of the party said.
