Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic has declared victory in the country's presidential election. The former ultra-nationalist is now hoping to lead Serbia into the EU. But he also wants to deepen military ties with Russia.
For months now, Serbs have been protesting against their president, Aleksandar Vucic. On Saturday, the situation deteriorated sharply: demonstrators stormed the state radio station and surrounded the presidential palace.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic slammed "tycoon bullies and fascist goon squads" who entered the offices of public broadcaster RTS. The protesters had wanted to read out their requests on air.
Anti-government protests in Serbia have entered a fourth month, as thousands gathered in Belgrade. Demonstrators have called for an end on what they call President Aleksandar Vucic's stranglehold of the media.
Protesters have braved a blizzard to demonstrate for a fifth week against President Aleksandar Vucic. Media freedom, an end to attacks against journalists and the opposition and electoral reform are among their demands.
