BELGRADE, Serbia — Ukraine on Monday rejected as baseless and false the accusations made by Serbia’s president that Ukraine’s secret service is behind a series of hoax bomb threats against Air Serbia flights to Russia.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has claimed that the foreign intelligence services of Ukraine and an unidentified European Union nation “are doing that. The pro-Russian Serbian leader did not provide evidence for his claim. Other Serbian officials had alleged that the threatening bomb hoax emails have been sent to Serbia from either Ukraine or Poland.
“His (Vucic’s) statements about Ukraine’s alleged involvement in bomb threats to Serbian air carriers flying to Russia are false,” Ukraine‘s Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko said in a statement.
“Tough sanctions and unity of the democratic world can stop this war,” Nikolenko said in a statement. “We call on Belgrade to stand up for the truth and fully join in supporting Ukraine and upholding the values on which a united democratic Europe has been founded.”
