BiH will not impose sanctions on Russia, said the Republika Srpska member of the BiH Presidency, Nebojsa Radmanovic. He added that any pressure or suggestion, regardless of whom it might come from, will not make Srpska representatives in the BiH institutions change their position.

Radmanovic said that as long as he is a member of the BiH Presidency, it will not bring any decision that may hurt the relations between BiH and Russia.

“No one can phone us and tell us to impose sanctions on those who are helping us and with whom we have excellent relations and who are investing here. I think that this is how it should be, not only with respect to Russia, but with any other countries,” Radmanovic told the press in Banjaluka.

He added that no one has the right to order BiH to impose sanctions on a country with which it has established extraordinary cooperation in many fields.
