Persecuted christians - Conference at the European Parliament about the persecution of Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa (Credit: MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen)

Break the silence on persecuted Christians

MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen held a conference and exhibition at the European Parliament to denounce the silence surrounding the suffering of persecuted Christians worldwide. The EU must take stronger action against violations of freedom of religion, especially in Africa where lives are lost due to this silence.

Until now, Serbia was the only European country refusing to support sanctions imposed on the Russian Federation due to its invasion of Ukraine. But classified documents revealed through an intelligence information leak tell a new story.

This information has been revealed when a large number of U.S. official documents have been posted online in a couple of last weeks. The leak is already classified as one of the most serious U.S. security breaches in recent history.

Serbia did not confirm these statements. The country’s Defense Minister Milos Vucevic said today that the intelligence information is not true.

“Serbia did not, nor will it be selling weapons to the Ukrainian nor the Russian side, nor to countries surrounding that conflict,” Milos Vucevic commented on the current situation.

The Pentagon document titled “Europe|Response to Ongoing Russia-Ukraine Conflict” presents the “assessed positions” of 38 European governments depicting their response to Ukraine’s requests for military assistance. Information is presented in a chart form.

The document dated March 2 says that Serbia committed to sending military assistance to Ukraine and is willing to continue providing weapons to Ukraine in the future. The country, however, did not agree to provide training to Ukrainian forces.

Serbia had repeatedly condemned the war and the Russian aggression, but this may be the first time this country decided to unequivocally support Ukraine.
