Date:

Serbia delivered a sophisticated Chinese anti-aircraft system in an undercover operation this weekend. Serbia is supporting the Russian invasion.

As per the Western concerns, the delivery of arms buildup in the Balkans, at the crucial time of the ongoing war in Ukraine, could threaten the fragile peace in the region.

On Sunday, April 10, Military and Media experts informed that six Chinese Air Force Y-20 transport planes were seen at Belgrade’s civilian airport early Saturday; the Chinese plains contained the HQ-22 surface-to-air missile systems to aid the Serbian military.

The Chinese cargo planes with military markings were snapped at Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla airport. The Serbian Defence Ministry has commented on the act.

The experts witnessed the glimpse of arms delivery over the territory of two NATO member nations, Turkey and Bulgaria, demonstrating China’s growing global reach.

According to the sources, the Y-20s disapproved of the appearance because they flew en masse instead of a series of single-aircraft flights. The Y-20’s presence in Europe in any numbers is also still a relatively new development.

Serbian military analyst Aleksandar Radic said that “the Chinese carried out their demonstration of force.”

Aleksander Vucic, president of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic confirmed the delivery of the medium-range system agreed in 2019, saying on Saturday that he would present the Serbian military’s “latest pride” on Tuesday or Wednesday.

He had earlier complained that NATO countries, which represent most of Serbia’s neighbors, refuse to allow the system’s delivery flights over their territories amid tensions over Russia’s aggression on Ukraine.

Although Serbia has voted in favor of U.N. resolutions that condemn the bloody Russian attacks in Ukraine, it has refused to join international sanctions against its allies in Moscow or outright criticize the apparent atrocities committed by the Russian troops there.
