BELGRADE, January 13 – RIA Novosti. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that massive environmental protests in the country, with road blockages and incidents, are sponsored by organizations from the West in the interests of his political opponents. there will be no political unrest with foreign intervention, as is happening now in Kazakhstan. At the end of December, he announced that the Australian-British Rio Tinto project, which caused massive protests, would not be withdrawn under the threat of new protests, but it would not move forward either. However, protests continued on a smaller scale on January 3, with massive protests taking place on Saturdays in Serbia. Eco-activists blocked highways and transport interchanges in 50 settlements in Serbia on November 27, December 4 and 11, and a number of violent incidents occurred. The protests are prompted by an expropriation bill and a referendum law that eco-activists believe will allow the Australian-British concern Rio Tinto to start mining lithium in the country. They demand the abolition of the agreements concluded with Rio Tinto, and completely curtail the Yadar project for the extraction of lithium under the threat of new protests. … The assembly then adopted the amendments by a majority of 193 votes (out of 250 deputies) of the ruling coalition. According to Vucic, “the protesters have no reason for environmental demands.” Previously, the country’s authorities had repeatedly said that they would allow Rio Tinto to exploit the lithium deposits only after a referendum. Deposits of the mineral yadarite (lithium and sodium borosilicate with hydroxyl) were discovered in the area of ​​the Yadar River near the town of Loznica in western Serbia in 2004; in 2006, the new mineral was named after the river. According to experts, the deposit may contain up to 10% of the world’s proven lithium reserves. One of the largest multinational mining and metallurgical companies, Rio Tinto, whose geologists have discovered the deposit, announced in July that it plans to invest $ 2.4 billion in the extraction of the mineral and the production of lithium from it. technological standards “. The head of state and the Serbian government announced plans to hold a referendum to approve the project due to protests from environmental activists. Rio Tinto CEO Jacob Stausholm indicated that $ 450 million will be invested in the initial phase of the project by the end of 2021.
