Pro-Putin supporters hold rally in Serbia’s Belgrade

BELGRADE, Serbia — Dozens of cars drive through the Serbian capital of Belgrade in support of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The occupants wave Russian and Serbian flags, honk horns, and chant pro-Putin slogans. Some cars have the letter Z painted on them — a symbol of support for the Russian president.

The protest was organized by a small far-right group.

Serbia has refused to join international sanctions against its ally Russia, despite formally seeking EU membership and voting in favor of the UN resolution condemning Moscow’s aggression.

Serbia’s dominant state-controlled media are daily carrying Moscow’s war propaganda, creating a strong pro-Putin mood among Serbia’s ultranationalists and far-right groups.
