Marko Gjuric, Petar Petkovic and Misha Vacic – the organizers who once burned down the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade are now loyal to Vucic
Marko Gjurić, Petar Petković and Misha Vacić are the three most loyal people of Serbian President Aleksadar Vučić.
A few days after Kosovo’s declaration of independence, on February 21, 2008, it was they who organized a protest that then escalated into the burning of the United States Embassy in Belgrade, writes The Geopost.
The Embassy building was closed before the protest, while the doors and windows were covered. The USA had strongly condemned the burning of the building, making a strong note of protest to the authorities in Serbia.
Djuriq, who is currently ambassador to Washington, was one of the main organizers of the protest at the time.
The former head of the so-called Serbian Office for Kosovo has always been loyal to Vučić, which has been rewarded with several preliminary positions

Petar Petkovic, who currently heads this office, was also one of the organizers of this protest.
During this period, Petkovic was an advisor in the cabinet of former Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica, to be elected deputy in 2012.
Misha Vacic, who previously was the leader of the right-wing movement “Nasi 1389”, while in 2018 he founded the movement “Serbian Right”.
Vacic had served as an adviser to Gjuric before entering politics, only to be fired in 2017 after the “Russian train” scandal, which was a provocation by Serbia and Russia for Kosovo.
This extreme Serb politician said in a documentary produced by Kremlin-run media Russia Today (RT) that “Serbia must start a war to return Kosovo, just as Russia did with Crimea.” /The Geopost/
