The President of Bosnia’s Serb-dominated Republika Srpska (RS) entity, Milorad Dodik, met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, on Tuesday.

“Republika Srpska remains adamant in its position not to follow a one-sided policy,” Dodik said, Radio Television of RS (RTRS) reports.

“I think that the Russian Federation, which persistently fought for its security framework and tried to provide these guarantees before, was simply forced when it comes to this military operation,” Dodik said, noting that the RS understands that this is not a conflict between Ukraine and Russia, but a conflict between the West and Russia.

He pointed out that Republika Srpska is exposed to many pressures.

“We didn't allow a formal decision to be made on sanctions against the Russian Federation and because of that, we were exposed to various forms of pressure from our Western partners in the form of sanctions and suspension of certain projects and programmes. But we have decided not to be part of the hysteria that is being created,” Dodik said.

RTRS reported that Putin was “grateful for the RS’ neutral attitude towards the issue of Ukraine and for the support of Russian culture.”

He confirmed that economic cooperation between Russia and the RS will continue.
