Russia sends state-of-the-art air defense system to Serbia
Moscow has raised suspicions in Brussels with the deployment of two anti-aircraft systems to Serbia for a joint military drill. Belgrade is pursuing closer NATO and EU links while maintaining longtime ties with Russia.

Serbia has over the weekend received a delivery of Russian-made Pantsir S1 air-defense systems, despite warnings of possible U.S. sanctions against the Balkan state, which is seeking membership in the European Union.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic made the announcement on television on February 23 a day after the Defense Ministry confirmed receiving two of the six ordered short-range, rapid-fire antiaircraft systems.
“Serbia strengthened its defensive and deterrent capabilities,” the Defense Ministry said in a statement.
Vuicic intimated the radar-guided systems were purchased after suggestions from Russian President Vladimir Putin.
