Large Quantities of Protective Supplies Deployed from EU to Serbia

The EU and its member states continue to support Serbia’s fight against coronavirus.

This German donation comes to Serbia through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism for covering the needs of the staff of the Ministry of Interior of Serbia.
