BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia has sent a protest note after the Croatian foreign minister called President Aleksandar Vučić a Russian “satellite” in the Balkans. It’s the latest spat between the two neighbors that have been at odds for most of the time since the bloody breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. Croatian Foreign Minister Gordan Grlić Radman told N1 television on Saturday that Vučić must decide if he’s on the side of Russia or the European Union. He added that “malign” Russian influence on the Balkans won’t be tolerated whatever Vučić decides. Serbia sent the protest note on Sunday.
