‘Serbia, Russia, we don't need EU’: Protesters booed Mogherini during speech to Serbian Parliament - YouTube



        



Members of the Serbian Parliament belonging to the Radical Party booed High Representative of European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, as she gave a speech in the Parliament in Belgade, Friday. Leader of the Radicals Vojislav Seselj announced on Thursday that he would try to obstruct Mogherini during her speech on Serbia's development towards the European Union, stating that she lobbies for Kosovo and Albanians, and that she is leading anti-Serbian politics. Radical party MPs also chanted ‘Serbia, Russia, we don't need EU’. Besides the Serbian Radical Party, members of the political party 'Dveri' showed their hostility towards Mogherini by holding posters reading in Serbian and English ‘Serbia doesn't trust Brussels’. Despite the protest, Mogherini completed her speech, although the booing out-voiced her. At the end of the speech, Radical party members booed Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic, who was also present in Parliament during Mogherini's speech.
