The Serbian government reportedly also agreed to approve "temporary protection" for Ukrainians affected by the dam's demolition, as well as organize a summer "sports rehabilitation camp" for the youth and children's teams from Kyiv's Dynamo football club.

The Serbian government, however, claims its neutrality in Russia's war against Ukraine and remains the only European country that has refused to impose sanctions on Moscow over its invasion.

Serbia and Russia have a long history of close ties, but this is not the first time tensions have risen between both countries due to the war in Ukraine.

In March, Belgrade denied that it supplied Ukraine with 3,500 missiles after the Russian Foreign Ministry expressed disapproval over media reports.
