Following the response of Australia’s public broadcaster  and  EBU to Balkanika’s allegations of buy-in and exchange of votes in the jury’s vote, Serbia’s public broadcaster, RTS took a stand on the issue, keeping substantially distant from its representatives.

In particular,Anja Rogljic,on behalf of Serbian public broadcaster stated in Oikotimes:

“Mladen Lukic’s statement from Balkanika reflects purely personal views. On May 14, 2018, he ceased to be a member of the RTS delegation  representing Serbia at Eurovision 2018. So RTS keeps distances from this statement.”

We remind you that both Australia’s SBS TV and EBU did not accept the Balkanika’s accusations, marking this as trash history.
