inSerbia: Serbia seeks explanation from Ukraine over controversial video

BELGRADE – Serbian Foreign Minister Ivan Mrkic has called the Charge d’Affairs of the Embassy of Ukraine in Serbia to discuss the promotional video of the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, on Ukraine and the EU, which insulted Serbia by the fact that the country does not exist on the map of Europe, which is shown in the video.

As the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, Mrkic will ask the Charge d’Affairs of the Embassy of Ukraine in Belgrade to come to a meeting at the Ministry to present him with the opinion of Serbia over the behavior of the present authorities in Kiev.

In the promotional video in which Kiev explains why Ukraine should become a part of the European Union a map appears in which all the states of the former Yugoslavia are deleted and annexed to Croatia, as InSerbia reported on Saturday, and was carried by all the mainstream media in the Balkans.

In the promotion video of his party “Fatherland”, where Yatsenyuk sees Ukraine as a part of Europe, video shows that Serbia no longer exists and is a part of Croatia.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk, one of the leaders of Ukraine’s second biggest party All-Ukrainian Union “Fatherland” and leader of the parliamentary faction of “Fatherland”, explained in the promotion video why he sees Ukraine in Europe.

It is not known is it a mistake or a provocation, due to Serbian relations with Russia, but all ex-Yugoslavian countries became Croatia in the video, though in the video Serbia is clearly mentioned.

In the video, the party as an example for Ukraine takes Croatia, and at the end of the video says that Croatia became a member of the EU and that the EU started negotiations with Serbia. However, Serbia for this Ukrainian party does not exist on the map of Europe, Vaseljenska reported.

Here is the promotion video, without Serbia, in it…

Yatsenyuk’s empty promises

Joining the EU does not mean prosperity, better employment prospects, a longer and healthier life, or the end of corruption. Ask any Greek.
