Putin attacks west’s role in Balkans ahead of visit to Serbia

Serbia gave Russian President Vladimir Putin a hero’s welcome on Thursday as he arrived in Belgrade. Putin is popular in Serbia, where Russian opposition to the Nato bombing of the country in 1999 and the subsequent independence of Kosovo is still recalled. Prior to the visit, speaking to the media, Putin lashed out at the west for trying to push Russian influence out of the Balkans.
