EU hopeful Serbia in quandary over Ukraine

Serbia's Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic (L) and leader of the centre-right Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) delivers a speech in front of the Serbian National assembly during a parliamentary session in Belgrade on April 27, 2014The Ukraine crisis has strengthened some alliances and severed others. But things are not so clear for Serbia, which finds itself in a tug-of-war between the European Union and its historical ally Russia. Since the crisis broke out in November, the Balkans country has been walking a fine line between respect for its obligations toward Brussels as an aspiring EU member, and maintaining good ties with Moscow. In particular, Brussels has sought to pressure Serbia to support sanctions against Russia in response to its annexation of Crimea, a measure that Belgrade would like to be exempted from to avoid offending its traditional ally.
