Official statistics say that Serbia is home to half a million people living in absolute poverty, unable to meet their immediate needs, while two million Serbs are at risk of poverty, accounting for 25.5% of the population, the United Trade Unions of Serbia “Sloga” (Concord) cautioned on Sept. 7.

“More than 80 percent of Serbian people are at risk of poverty on a daily basis, because it’s enough for them to miss two or three salaries or pensions to experience a complete economic collapse, as seen back in the 1990s,” the trade union explained.

“Sloga” believes that the current shortage of milk, agricultural products and fuels is “only the consequence of incompetent people running the energy sector and agriculture, as well as of importin and exporting lobbies, more precisely, cartels, whose mercy are the citizens of Serbia left at for years now.”
