Bosnia and Herzegovina refused to let Russian military experts across the border, who helped fight the coronavirus in Serbia. The country’s security ministry explained that it was “not competent” to resolve such issues. Recall that earlier incident with humanitarian assistance has already occurred in Poland.
The Russian military “stuck” on the border of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The state refuses to let them pass. Specialists were sent to Serbia to provide humanitarian assistance and help cope with the virus.
The country’s security ministry said it was “not competent” to resolve such issues. But there is no decision of the competent authority yet.
“This note requested permission to enter BiH for 24 members of the medical detachment and five special RHBZ machines for disinfection, which, at the invitation of the presiding House of Peoples of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH, were supposed to help the hospital in Mostar (in the Croatian-Muslim Federation of BiH),” RIA Novosti official announcement.
Recall that earlier Bosnia and Herzegovina requested assistance from Russia in connection with the spread of coronavirus infection. In early April, a message from the authorities appeared that, on behalf of the head of state Vladimir Putin, assistance would also be sent to the Balkans. It was noted that Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu ordered to send three Il-76 flights.
Prior to this, incidents with humanitarian assistance arose in Poland. There they tried to appropriate the goods that were sent to Italy.
