It’s not simple and easy, we are working on it 24 hours, but we’re slowly managing to get them back to our country. So for our people who came to Havana from various flights, for example, we arranged to get to Moscow, where we sent an Air Serbia plane for them. This is not the only flight, there are more, we care about our citizens on the territory of all countries," said Deputy Prime Minister of Serbia and Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Construction, prof.
