Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said Friday that a shooting and blast targeting a concert hall in the Moscow region will further escalate the conflict in Ukraine.

Vucic noted that on March 7, the American Embassy urged citizens not to go shopping in malls in Moscow.

“Some other embassies did the same thing later. This means that their services intercepted certain conversations, and they knew this was going to happen. In any case, this is a tragic event that will have incalculable consequences. Some will say they are Islamists, some will say Kyiv. Some will even say that Moscow did it. However, there is no doubt that there will be further escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, approaching a general war,” Vucic, a close fired of Russian President Vladimir Putin. said on the TV Prva broadcaster.

Vucic said many were laughing and every day it is getting closer to a world conflict.

“There is a superpower that is not America whose way of acting is this. We will see what (Director of the Federal Security Service of Russia, Alexander,) Bortnikov will announce about the terrorist attacks. It doesn’t mean anything if the terrorists are from Ingushetia or Dagestan, or even from Ukraine, but who is the organizer,” said Vucic.

He urged a National Security Council meeting for Saturday following the attack and told the nation that the Security Intelligence Agency would secure stadiums and malls in Serbia.
