Serbia needs two divisions of anti-aircraft missile systems S-300 and a regimental command center, what was discussed with Russia and Belarus, the Serbian Prime Minister, Aleksandar Vucic, told reporters on Sunday.

According to the head of the government, he personally talked about the potential deal with the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and the Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko.

“There is no agreement on S-300. I mentioned this over the course of negotiations with President Putin, and we talked about it. I discussed this with President Lukashenko as well,” — Vucic said.

In January 2017, the Defense Minister of Serbia Zoran Djordjevic said that Belarus planned to conduct negotiations on S-300. As for the talks on this subject with Russia, there has not been official information so far.
