Serbia and Hungary voted in favor of the anti-Russian resolution at the UN

Serbia is one of the countries where Russian propaganda has found favorable ground. Why Serbia? The reason is the close cultural and geopolitical ties with Russia.

As is well known, Serbia has refused to impose sanctions against Russia due to its armed aggression. Instead, Belgrade entered into an agreement with the Kremlin for "consultations" on foreign policy issues.

Putin and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic also signed a new gas deal and state airline Air Serbia doubled the number of flights between the countries' capitals. The European Commission said that this position of Serbia could jeopardize the country's ambitions for EU membership.

But, according to a foreign media outlet, Serbia and Hungary voted in favor of an anti-Russian UN resolution.

The UN General Assembly approved a resolution proposed by Ukraine on the "principles of a just world", also called the anti-Russia resolution. The resolution was supported by an absolute majority of countries and only 7 states opposed its adoption, including Belarus, North Korea, Eritrea, Mali, Nicaragua, Russia and Syria.

At the same time, the amendments of Belarus, for the invitation to negotiations and the prohibition of the supply of arms to Kiev, were rejected.

During the vote, two of Russia's so-called European allies, Hungary and Serbia, despite expressing support for Russia, also voted to adopt an anti-Russian resolution, which shows that allied relations with such countries are very doubtful.

"What kind of alliance relations with Serbia and Hungary can we talk about when these countries vote in the UN to introduce an anti-Russian resolution? Russia has only six allies who spoke out against the pro-Western resolution," the media outlet reports.

It should be noted that some countries did not participate in the vote, however, 141 states supported the anti-Russian resolution.

Encirclement of Bahmut

Prigozhin announced the liberation of the village of Berkovka near Bakhmut as it came under the control of the Russian army.

The founder of Wagner PMC, officially announced the full control of the settlement of Berkovka, although unofficial information about the capture of this settlement appeared the day before yesterday. Taking this settlement under the control of the Russian army provides an opportunity to organize an attack in several directions at the same time.

The control of the settlement of Berkovka makes it possible to start the encirclement of Bakhmut from the western direction and, what is very remarkable, is that there are actually no fortifications on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and this contributes to the rapid advance of the Russian troops to surround the city.

However, a large group of Ukrainian troops is deployed to the west of Bakhmut, which carries the risk of counterattacks by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
