Serbia does not want to ban local firms from selling ammunition to third countries, Serbian Prime Minister Miloš Vučević said, Agence France-Presse wrote on June 25.

Vučević commented on information about the export of Serbian arms to the West, which later ended up in Ukraine.

“I do not want to prohibit firms from selling our shells to Spain, the Czech Republic, the United States, because it is not forbidden,” Vučević emphasized.

The politician added that the production of shells that are later used in war “is not anything immoral.”

Earlier, Serbian President Vucic confirmed information about the export of shells to Western countries. He called the supply of ammunition to the West “part of the economic revival” of Serbia.

According to President Vucic, Serbia has supplied Western allies of Ukraine with ammunition worth about 800 million euros over the past two years. Vucic added that ammunition deliveries are a good opportunity for the industry to strengthen its position in the arms market.

On June 24, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitriy Peskov said that Russia would look into the issue of ammunition supplies from Serbia to Ukraine.
