Yesterday marked the ninth post-election protest in Belgrade, where demonstrators called for the release of those arrested during the recent unrest. Regional media reported that during the previous protest, the police intervened to disband the demonstration after a violent individual attempted to enter the Belgrade assembly.

“Serbia Against Violence,” addressing the incidents from the weekend protest, squarely placed blame on the government. They alleged that the government deployed its own troublemakers and exploited the unrest to suppress peaceful protesters advocating for a rerun of the December 17 elections. Notably, they emphasized that their supporters, who are under suspicion by the police for violent conduct, were not involved in the disturbances.

Representatives of the opposition group, “Serbia Against Violence,” vehemently assert that their supporters bore no responsibility for the unrest during the recent protest and demand their immediate release.
