International Military Cooperation – Serbia – 2023


In 2022, the Serbian Armed Forces did not participate in any international exercises, either bilateral or multilateral. The reason for this was the decision of the Government of the Republic of Serbia that the Armed Forces were to abort all activities related to planning, preparing and conducting exercises with foreign partners. This decision was a direct result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Before it was made, Serbia conducted exercises with both NATO and Russia, although always more with NATO members.


The Serbian MoD reported only one donation in 2022 – of IT equipment valued at RSD 495,594 (slightly above EUR 4,215.70) – by the South Eastern and Eastern Europe Clearinghouse for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons (SEESAC) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), intended for promoting gender equality. Open-source research showed that Serbia also received medical equipment consisting of a 64 slice scanner and a mobile X-ray machine for the Military Medical Centre “Karaburma” from the US embassy. The value of this donation was never specified.
