A large number of critics were directed at the statement of the Chairman of the Presidency of BiH, Milorad Dodik, after he said that he would ask the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, to allocate a part of the vaccines against coronavirus to the Republika Srpska (RS).
“Today, I will send a letter to Aleksandar Vucic and ask him to send a part of the vaccines to RS, so that we can start vaccination as well. I find it necessary, having in mind that a certain number of people here are increasingly interested in vaccination,” said Dodik the other day.
Reactions to this statement of his continue throughout this week. Of course, it is not only disputable that Dodik is asking for vaccines from Vucic, but that our government did not start the vaccination on time, Klix.ba writes.
This attitude shows the well-known behavior of BiH authorities who are not able to solve almost any major problem on their own, but they “beg” for help from outside.
Former Minister of Security of BiH, Dragan Mektic, reacted on this occasion.
“Congratulations to Vucic for getting vaccines. But you are also the president of the state, and with your influence and status in the international community, you are not even able to get a movie ticket abroad. So much for your reputation. So, begging is all that is left for you,” Mektic stated, referring to Dodik’s request to Vucic.
Earlier, the president of the PDP, Branislav Borenovic, also reacted, saying that Dodik was begging for vaccines while procuring helicopters and limousines at the same time.
At the same time, as he said, citizens throughout the region are being vaccinated against the coronavirus, and BiH is once more, the last in line, mostly due to the negligence of the authorities.
The leader of the Serbian Democratic Party (SDS), Mirko Sarovic, stated that Milorad Dodik’s announcement that he would ask Vucic for vaccines was another proof of the incompetence and reluctance of the current authorities.
Sarovic assessed that Dodik’s move also clearly proves the government’s inability to solve basic problems, including the inability to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
