Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on June 8 that Serbia had always expressed reverence for the victims of others, but that not "in 30 years has it heard a word" about the Serb casualties of the wars of the 1990s in the former Yugoslavia.

"In 30 years we have not heard one word, not of remorse, but of comfort from anyone to us for the tens of thousands of Serb victims," Vucic said at an All-Serb Assembly in Belgrade's central Trg Republike square on June 8.

According to him, the pressure began at the same time as with the Council of Europe "even though Pristina has met none of its obligations," and the adoption of a resolution "on us being a genocidal people." Speaking about the All-Serb Assembly, he said agreement had been reached "on Serb unity that will last not a day, two or three months, but forever," and that "no one will ever be able to destroy the unity of the Serbs."

The rally opened with performances by art and culture associations from Serbia and Republika Srpska, and closed with a rendition of the song This Is Serbia, while two large Serbia and RS flags were unfurled. Numerous Serbian and Republika Srpska officials were present at the concert in Trg Republike, including head of the Serbian Orthodox Church Porfirije, Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik, the premiers, parliament speakers and heads of other institution from Serbia and Republika Srpska.
