“We have proposed to take a neutral position on the Ukrainian crisis because we think it is good for both Muslims and Croats. Both the Ukrainian and Russian people are close to us and we cannot make any differentiation here, at least as far as we are concerned”,  Milorad Dodik emphasized.

He reiterated that the Republic of Srpska respects territorial integrity, calls for peace, but also points out that Republic of Srpska is not ready to impose sanctions.

“We are not ready to make Russians, wherever we are, the target of persecution, as some in the West do, showing their fascist manner and confiscating people’s property, persecuting everyone who is Russian, even children in kindergartens. I will remain against that”,  said Milorad Dodik.
