Oleksandr Alexandrovych, the Ambassador of Ukraine to Serbia who earlier claimed that Russia makes use of Serbia to destroy Europe was supported by the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine despite the talks on the escalation of the Serbian scandal as European Truth reported.

‘We will not punish Oleksandr Alexandrovych for his actions. He got the resounding support of his attitude in Kyiv both officially and during the closed discussions. The European Truth got the signs that the ambassador is supported by the MFA since the beginning of the scandal because he said the truth but only he could speak too harsh strain during the interview’, as the edition reported.
