Many Serbs cannot pay their energy bills. This has been highlighted again by report in the media of massive backlogs in electricity payments. Serbs owe over EUR 187mn to the electricity companies, and many have no hope of paying their debts.
The desperation of may Serbs vis-a-vis energy is underlined in Mladen Djordjevic’s documentary about the Serbian porn industry, “Made in Serbia“, in which a Serbian porn actress explains she does it to “pay for firewood”.
In parts of Serbia life is very much about survival. These people are the victims of the economic suppression of the country and they will benefit most from its economic liberation.
The sooner gangsterism and corruption are seen as the national security and national pride issues, the better. Next time you read about some grafting politician or you demand your own “3 to 5%”, remember you are large part of the reason Serbian girls are driven to porn and grannies freeze to death in the provinces.
