Serbia’s foreign minister announced Vladimir Putin would boost its military power after the request.
Russians have called for nuclear capable C-400 missile systems to be stationed there.
The EU is considering letting Serbia into its cosy club – despite the former commie state making no secret of its links to ally Russia.“We have asked the Russian side to transmit lethal devices”Ivica Dacic
Serbian foreign minister Ivica Dacic said: “We have asked the Russian side to transmit lethal devices and some other types of equipment relating to other units of the army.
“I expect [Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic’s] visit will give progress on this issue.
“Thanks to the help and support of the Russian Federation, Serbia is strengthening its defensive power.”
Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said: “We are ready to constructively deal with any queries that our Serbian friends formulate in order to ensure the reliable defence of their country and – of course – in the context of general stability in the region.”
The move puts nuclear capable missiles with range of Berlin.
British soldiers were sent Lithuania to take part in the Iron Sword war drills as a result.
C-400 missiles in Serbia would be in range of Rome and Vienna.
