Serbian TV aired an interview with a young man who was kidnapped from his family in Belgrade, and said his kidnappers were Serbian.
The man, who asked to remain anonymous, told the station that he and his father were on their way home from work, and that his brother had been kidnapped by the same group of people.
“My brother is not safe, he is not here,” the man said.
“I have been kidnapped and I have been forced to leave Serbia.
I can’t leave my house.
I’m very afraid, very scared.”
The interview was translated by Serbian TV.
The story was published in Serbian on Saturday.
The man said he was going to speak to his family.
The report came on the same day that Serbia’s Foreign Minister said the country had been in talks with the U.S. about providing $50 million to support Serbian troops who have been battling the militants in eastern Ukraine.
