Republika Srpska President Milorad Dodik has said that he will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, May 25, at the Economic Forum in St. Petersburg, and that he will inform him, among other things, about the fact that Americans have a total of 18 million dollars at their disposal to interfere in the election process in BiH.
“Americans allocated twelve million dollars to media outlets that suit them in BiH and the US Embassy has at its disposal six million dollars for a program to prevent the Russian influence from spreading in the Balkans. Probably all will be used against Srpska,” Dodik has said.
He says that this is something that is known, that Republika Srpska underlined it in its report to the UN Security Council and that no one denied the report.
“When the US Embassy was responding to this issue, they started talking that they allocated hundreds of millions in assorted aid to this area in order to hide this fact,” Dodik told RTRS.
Regarding amendments to the Election Law which stipulated the introduction of surveillance cameras, Dodik has said that the US Embassy offered ballot counting software so that they “would say who is winning here.”
“Luckily, this was not adopted and will not be adopted,” Dodik has said.
He has added that these are residues of the old American administration, that he still believes that this has nothing to do with US President Donald Trump and that non-interference is still his policy.
Dodik has said that he will talk with Putin about further economic cooperation and about Srpska’s commitment to a military neutrality and to following Serbia in that matter.
Dodik has said that Srpska does not want a military border on the Drina River if someone in Bosnia would choose this path.
“Putin has never tried to impose anything on us unlike many others,” Dodik has said.
