The Ukrainian embassy in Serbia on March 14 condemned a rally held in downtown Belgrade on March 13 in support of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and called on the Serbian authorities to "immediately and publicly denounce and punish the participants" in the demonstration "promoting support to war and encouraging participation in it on the side of the aggressor state."

"We hope that the Serbian government will immediately publicly denounce and punish the participants in these hybrid actions in Belgrade that represent support to a terrorist war to annihilate the people of Ukraine, prevent any similar events in the future and immediately and completely remove anti-Ukrainian genocidal symbols from the streets and walls of Belgrade and other cities in Serbia," the embassy said in a press release.

The press release further read that "the lack of a swift and strong response by Serbian authorities to this disgraceful action stirs not only deep bitterness," but also raises the legal, human and moral question of the attitude of Serbian authorities to Russian President Vladimir Putin's aggression against Ukraine.

The embassy also underscored the "currently isolated incicents of aggressive behavior by representatives of pro-Russian organizations in Serbia" toward Ukrainian refugees, protesters against the Russian invasion and even Serbian journalists.
