Russian Opposition Wiretapped in Belgrade, Min Denies Giving Moscow Transcript

Russian opposition politician Vladimir Kara-Murza said that members of the Russian opposition were wiretapped during the meeting in Belgrade and that Serbia’s Interior Minister Aleksandar Vulin handed over the transcripts of the talks to Moscow, ‘Nova’ daily reported on Wednesday (12.01), what he denied and said would sue Kara-Murza.

„In May last year, Vulin was in Moscow to hand over transcripts of our talks from the meeting in Belgrade. Then (in 2021) he met with (Secretary of the Russian Security Council since 2008 Nikolai) Patrushev, and they formed the so-called Working Group for Countering Coloured Revolutions”, Kara-Murza said in an exclusive interview for the Belgrade ‘Nova’ daily.

Later on Wednesday (12.01), Vulin denied the claim, saying that „every fool can have his own opinion, just as every spy can present himself as a humanitarian worker or activist of any kind”, according to his Ministry statement.

„I don’t know which category Russian opposition politician Vladimir Kara-Murza falls into, but I know that he is a liar who will have to prove his lies before both Serbia’s and Russia’s courts, wherever I  can bring him to justice. Lies that the Interior Minister gives any information to anyone is the dangerous and calculated manner to present Serbia as a non-sovereign country ruled by others”, the statement added. Kara-Murza is a Russian politician, writer, and historian. He is one of the most deserving for adopting the Magnitsky Act in the USA, Canada, the EU, and Great Britain, which implies sanctions for Russian citizens who violate human rights.

According to Western media, he was poisoned twice by the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB).
