BELGRADE, 10 Oct – PRIME. Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić, in the light of reports of threats to the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, called on the Ministry of Internal Affairs and special services to strengthen the security of the country’s gas transmission system (GTS).
On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin, at an operational meeting with permanent members of the Security Council, said that the Kyiv regime was trying to blow up one of the sections of the Turkish Stream gas transmission system.
“No one in the media noticed, but they write that President Putin said today that someone was trying to destroy the Turkish Stream and interrupt gas supplies. If this happened, I don’t know what we would do, it would mean that we would stay without electricity, the gas-fired power plants would not work in Novi Sad, Zrenjanin and Pančevo. That would mean no gas, nothing, despite our largest reserves in history,” Vučić told reporters.
The Serbian President recalled that only Belgrade consumes 3 million cubic meters of gas per day.
“I spoke with the Security and Information Agency (BIA, counterintelligence – ed.), I will talk with the police so that helicopters are raised and protected from potential sabotage. What happened, I’m afraid, was in the Black Sea, and not here, but that’s all we will do what we can,” the Serbian leader stressed.
