BELGRADE, August 31, /ITAR-TASS/. Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic on Sunday thanked Russia which continues sending humanitarian aid to the country hit by severe floods last May.
Late on Saturday, a Russian military transport plane airlifted to Serbia a new batch of aid, including accumulators for MiG jets.
“We announced a tender, but Russian President Vladimir Putin personally insisted on donating them (accumulators),” the president said.
“I am very grateful to President Putin for the present,” he added, saying his country “will for the first time over a long period get full control over the Serbian air” in terms of “police patrolling”.
Three MiG-29 as well as MiG-21planes will be ready for use already on Monday, he said.
Scores were killed in the natural calamity in Serbia in May, and many countries offered to help, Serbian Defense Minister Bratislav Gasic said earlier. The minister said aid from Russia came just ten days after he had discussed flood relief with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. Russia would continue sending humanitarian aid, he added.
Heavy flooding in May 2014 killed almost 80 people in Serbia and Bosnia. Floods in western Serbia and in central and northern Bosnia affected nearly two million people and caused billions of euros of damage.
