The activities of Russian diplomat Georgy Kleban, who gathered intelligence in Serbia, are not being investigated by the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office in Belgrade, Radio Free Europe reported on Dec. 9.
"The Higher Public Prosecutor's Office in Belgrade has no case relating to the event that you are interested in, nor has a criminal report been filed with us in connection to such a case," reads the prosecutor's office response to Radio Free Europe.
A video posted to YouTube on Nov. 17 shows Russian diplomat Georgy Kleban giving money to retired Army of Serbia member Col. Z. K. in Belgrade, as it was later determined.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic opened an investigation into the case, calling an urgent session of the National Security Council on Nov. 21 and meeting with Russian Ambassador to Serbia Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko on the same day.
Ahead of his trip to Sochi, where he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Dec. 4, Vucic said that as far as he was concerned the Russian spy affair was closed after his talk with the Russian ambassador in Belgrade.
