The Security Ministry has refused to let a group of Russian military medics into Bosnia and Herzegovina, the official website reports.
The group consisted of 24 doctors and five specialised vehicles. The Russians were about to disinfect in the city Mostar at the request of Dragan Covic, one of the former members of the country’s Presidency.
However, the border police did not admit the group to Bosnia and Herzegovina. To endorse the presence of a Russian military detachment in the country, the three-member Presidency’s joint decision is needed, the ministry stresses.
Earlier, on April 9-23, a Russian team was on a ‘disinfection’ mission in the territory of Republika Srpska (part of Bosnia and Herzegovina).
As of May 3, there were 1,781 confirmed coronavirus cases in the country; 70 COVID-19 patients died.
