Serbians unfold banner on unity with Russians at EuroLeague match

Fans of the Serbian Crvena zvezda basketball club hung out a banner on unity with the Russians during the EuroLeague match with the Greek Olympiacos club in the city of Belgrade. It says '25.3 - We and Russians 300 million'.

That is the first part of a Serbian saying, which sounds like 'There are 300 million of us and Russians, while without Russians - half a lorry'.

On 25 March a friendly football match between Crvena zvezda and the Russian Spartak will take place. Fan groups of both clubs have a great friendship. And not only they.

As Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, arrived in Serbia, she was greeted with mottoes in support of Russia. 'Serbia, Russia, we do not need European Union!' the opposition MPs were chanting.
