To whom is Serbia selling weapons?

June 26, 2023

Serbia is the largest weapons producer in the Western Balkans and ranks 25th in the world in terms of arms exports. In April, Reuters reported that Serbia, which has long had close ties with Russia, had agreed to export arms to Ukraine - a claim Belgrade denies. Military analyst Aleksandar Radic explains what might have happened.
