Serbian President Says European Solidarity Doesn't Exist, Asks China For Help Against COVID-19

Click to see full-size image

On March 16th, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic announced a state of emergency in the country, and said he had sent a letter to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping asking for help after the EU imposed limits on exports of medical equipment amid the coronavirus crisis.

“I sent a letter to President Xi, in which for the first time I officially called him not only a dear friend but also a brother, and not only my personal friend but also a friend and brother of this country,” Vucic said.

“As of today, as you know, we cannot even import goods, according to the European Union’s decisions, [European Commission president] Ursula von der Leyen said this a while ago, we cannot import medical equipment from EU countries,” he added.

He said that he had asked China to send Serbia “everything” – “even to send us doctors, [because] our doctors are already tired”.

On March 16th, Brussels imposed an EU-wide ban on exports of some medical protective equipment in a bid to keep sufficient supplies within the bloc.

“Such medical goods [protective equipment] can only be exported to non-EU countries with the explicit authorisation of the EU governments. This is the right thing to do because we need that equipment for our health care systems,” von der Leyen said in a video message on Twitter.

Vucic expressed fury that such a decision had been made by EU officials – “the people who gave us lectures here, [telling us] that we should not buy Chinese goods”.

In Serbia, under the state of emergency measures announced by Vucic, Serbia has banned entrance to all foreigners, except diplomats, people with residence permits, and Chinese citizens “who we will be begging to come and help us with everything”.

The EU, in addition to what von der Leyen said, the European Commission is to begin an €37 billion “Corona Response Investment Initiative” directed at health care systems, SMEs, labour markets and other vulnerable parts of our economies, and to make a further €28 billion of structural funds fully eligible for meeting these expenditures.

The bans of movement between EU member states is a formal resolution, which most countries in the bloc already implemented regardless, thus Brussels was simply there to acknowledge that it was happening.

The EU’s actions are late and seem unneeded, as of now, since sovereign states are simply dealing with the coronavirus spreading by themselves.

Serbia is justifiable disappointed in the EU’s calls for solidarity when the situation is calm, and the claims by the EU that turned out to be entirely hollow, when it a crisis came round the corner.

The EU currently is showing to be completely incapable, with it taking formal steps, and evidently only allegedly protecting its members’ interests, but at the same time, even the members inside the bloc are left to fend for themselves.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Even though the evil Jews and dumbass Americunts spread the coronavirus, China has shown tremendous efficiency and maturity in controlling the outbreak and came to Iran and Italy’s assistance within hours shipping medical equipment and personnel, what did the Americunt morons do, they bombed civilians and bought guns at home to kill each other.

      So are you worried for Americans that they will kill each other with their own guns?

    • RichardD

      The whole Chinese story doesn’t add up. And neither do the Italian, Spanish and French responses. If this purported super virus is so deadly. It would of spread to the rest of China even with the quarantine measures. What is locking down civilian populations going to do except crash the economy? We’ve had it here in the US where I’m at for as long as the Chinese with no containment measures until 2 weeks ago and it’s killed a total of 40 people. Which is a rounding error compared to cancer, heart disease and the flu. This whole episode has scam written all over it.

        Most ALL the Governments in the World and most ALL the doctors, epidemiologists, other experts are wrong. But you, the failing rideshare driver Einstein, know way way better than them all. You might drive yourself to the nut house and get the treatment you obviously need.

          This quote helps explain the mortality rate scam that the msm and governments are running:

          “How to calculate the mortality rate during an outbreak

          At present, it is tempting to estimate the case fatality rate by dividing the number of known deaths by the number of confirmed cases. The resulting number, however, does not represent the true case fatality rate and might be off by orders of magnitude […]

          A precise estimate of the case fatality rate is therefore impossible at present.”

            The rideshare driver genius wants to compare IQ’s not just with me but with all the scientists, doctors, epidemiologists and other experts who he thinks he is smarter than. How cute.

          • RichardD

            What’s your solution? To keep 95% of the population on indefinite lock down and put them on unemployment, food stamps and welfare when 99% of them are healthy and can work. You’re an imbicil

          How is living under state mandated mass unemployment and defacto house arrest and martial law working out in California because of 11 Coronavirus deaths in the state?

          “Alameda, San Mateo, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco and Santa Clara counties are requiring all residents to stay at home and not report to work unless they have essential jobs”

            It’s really nice having my wife work at home as I usually do.

          • RichardD

            So you could care less about the millions of your neighbors who are having their lives destroyed by this fake pandemic where a total of 9 people in your state have died. Would they have died of the other diseases that they were probably suffering from anyways? And then were counted as Coronavirus deaths like the Italians are evidently doing to inflate the numbers.

        • RichardD
          • Jake321

            Your pick of countries, Italy, just 5 days ago to poo poo the Pandemic just had its deaths go up another almost 350 in the last 24 hours. That is as many in one day about equal to their seasonal flu daily deaths in a week.

          • RichardD

            How many of them are people who were dying of other diseases anyways, but because they tested positive for the virus were listed as virus deaths instead?

        • RichardD

          You want to destroy the US economy and implement government mandated mass unemployment and defacto house arrest and martial law over less than 100 Coronavirus deaths. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/images/about/burden/Influenza-Chart-Infographic-high-res.jpg

      • Barba_Papa

        You are right. This whole response is out of proportion to the actual damage this disease causes. It sucks if you’re one of the people that dies, but people have been dying of the flu, lung cancer from smoking and pollution, alcohol related diseases and disorders, and generally eating too much crap foods for decades with nobody giving a fuck.

        But we’re all living in the denial stage and almost no government leader is willing to admit or tell his country that lockdown doesn’t work. And even if it does stop the virus for now, it’s just going to come back in the fall.

    • Oh, so sinister, Americans exercising their right to buy guns.

    • In Exile

      If the Chinese had acted propmptly we would not be in this shit, damn those Chinese to hell.

  • Barba_Papa

    Yeah, lets turn to a ruthless dictatorship from which the virus originated for help. For the 1 millionth time, people, the enemy of my enemy is NOT my friend. Just my enemy’s enemy. China opposes the US, which most of us here consider their enemy. That does not make China your new friendly neighbor and you will just end up changing bondage to Washington to bondage to Beijing. Because China does not give away free money or free aid any more then the US does. And the countries that have accepted Chinese aid and money in the past, like in Africa, are basically owned by China.

    There is no such thing as a free lunch, and if anyone offers you one, always be weary for ulterior motives.

    • verner

      rather ask china for help and receive it than turning to brussels and find a nonono.

      • Barba_Papa

        Again, the enemy of your enemy is NOT your friend. He might even turn out to be a greater more tenacious enemy in the long run.

    • viktor ziv

      Yes indeed, however when one must choose between two evils, lesser one should be the one. Or trade off for both of them, like Somalia imports arms from USA, while China makes infrastructure investments there. :)

      • Barba_Papa

        If there is one certainty in life is that any powers you give to the government it will NEVER give back. The cure in the long run might be worse then the disease.

      • Barba_Papa

        >> while China makes infrastructure investments there<<

        And then China OWNS your country. Again, the enemy of my enemy is NOT my friend. Just my enemy's enemy. Nothing more, nothing less. China is not in the business of handing out free money, China is in the same business as the US, trying to create and run a global empire. And to oust one master in exchange for another is a futile exercise.

  • opet ja

    By the way, our president Vuchich is a traitor and criminal. Until yesterday he was licking Merkel’s and Makron’s asssses. He continuously has talks with Alexander Soros, the son of George Soros. He destroyed Serbian economy, making debts large.

    • In Exile

      I’d trade our sellout leader for him ours is flooding us with Chinese.

  • vergv

    He should ask his AIPAC buddies, I’m sure they’ld be glad to help out.

  • verner

    but I sort of have the idea that the virus of the day is or was produced in tel aviv with an evil intent in its use. rest assured that its within the jewish framework to plan and effectuate a world wide pandemic to suit their future plans in the middle east and elsewhere.

  • John

    The wheels are already coming off.

    • Ivan Freely

      It does seem that way. I wonder if Deutsche Bank is close to imploding.

  • Ivanus59

    Vučić has obviously gone mad from so much sucking of Israeli dick lately (Serbia agreed to open a consulate in Jerusalem thus following USA in recognizing it as Israeli capital or rather taking a step in that direction).
    For every step in the right direction they take they must take a giant LEAP in the wrong direction!
    Our retarded government reduced the number of buses from this morning which OF COURSE resulted in EVEN MORE CROWDED BUSES And in doing so – increased the possibility of ANY virus spreading by about 50%.
    Now they are forbidding people from leaving their homes between 20:00 and 6:00 which means that in between those hours we will get more traffic jams and crowding because people NEED to go and do stuff, we got work and obligations to do. Not to mention that staying in home for days is VERY unhealthy!
    Our government is behaving as if they’re either all 100% panicking idiots who don’t know what they are doing OR they are purposefully hurting citizens for some reason (orders from the zionist masters I guess)…

    • Ivan Freely

      Hanlon’s razor. My vote is they’re all 100% panicking idiots.

  • Davki

    Vengeful propaganda. Of course, solidarity exists. Germany is sending doctors all over the place, there simply none left. Bans of movement etc. are nonsensical. Spread of part of a seasonal virus (about 10%, the only one that is tested for) is both unstoppable as it is harmless and normal. Serbia needs no additional ‘aid’. This is a lame, misleading, ‘populist’ move by the Serbian presidency. “Oh, we want to do somehting, but the evil others (i.e. Europeans) don’t let us”. Right. You don’t want to do anything and you don’t need to and you know it. So stop lying just to fool your population. Disgusting.

    • goingbrokes

      Bs, EU is finished, and good riddance!

  • goingbrokes

    EU is a moronic, elitist, non-democratic, non-solidarity, CIA inspired globalist authority designed to subjugate the sovereign states, cultures and traditions of Europe.
    Europeans in the past have been quick to respond to crises, but EU with the elitist morons on top is late, is unsympathetic, is again just talking about money and “measures”, and they are unwilling to admit that the Open Borders ideology is completely bankrupt as ordinary Europeans don’t believe it any more, and Schengen must close.
    Coronavirus has miraculously revealed the rottenness of EU. The Right is rising, thank goodness, taking countries back from the abyss, putting borders where they belong. There should be lampposts with Eurocrats names on them!
