Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić declared victory for his ruling SNS party in Sunday’s snap parliamentary election.

Early results put the SNS at about 46%, while opposition center-left Serbia Against Violence coalition was set to come second with around 23% in a vote that was marred by reports of irregularities.

Serbia has resisted implementing sanctions against Moscow but has previously said Crimea and Donbas are Ukrainian sovereign territories.
