The Serbian organization “October Group,” represented by attorney Čedomir Stojković, has filed a number of criminal charges with the in the High Public Prosecutor’s Office in Belgrade against several extremist individuals and organizations operating in Serbia.
The charges are against Serbian Security and Information Agency (BIA) Director Aleksandar Vulin, Russian Ambassador Aleksandar Bocan-Kharchenko, the so-called Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Center in Nis, and members of the extremist organization Wagner and the National Patrol.
Wagner’s mercenaries have also been accused of numerous human rights violations by Western countries and United Nations experts.
Through an announcement on Twitter, Stojković stressed that all of them are working to mobilize the citizens of Serbia for the war.
“Bocan-Harchenko leads, Vulin prevents counterintelligence work, the center in Nis is a platform and therefore we have Wagner in reality,” Stojkovic wrote.
Criminal charges were also filed against Damjan Knezevic, the leader of the right-wing Serbian organization People’s Patrols.
The Serbian lawyer told the journalists, after filing the lawsuits, that they also refer to the actions of the Russian diplomatic mission “for the mobilization of Serbian citizens to participate in the war in Ukraine”.
“We have reasonable suspicion to believe that Aleksandar Vulin, as director of the BIA, gave orders, instructions and directions not to prevent the activities of the Wagner Group in Serbia and thus interfered with counterintelligence work in Serbia,” Stojkovic said.

“On the website of the Russian Embassy in Serbia there were clear instructions on how to apply to the Russian army, and giving such instructions is a criminal offense under the Criminal Code of Serbia,” he added.
Such an instruction was published on the website of the Russian Embassy years ago. However, after spreading on social networks, the instruction was removed from the old embassy website, but it still exists in the history of search engines. /The Geopost/
