RS Possibly Paid about $30 Million to US Lobbyists

The president of Republika Srpska entity Milorad Dodik said the entity has possibly paid about $30 million to firms lobbying the United States government in Washington, following a report of Voice of America.

“It is public knowledge that for the past 10 years we have contacts with certain agencies (in the U.S). Thanks to that we had a good standing of Republika Srpska in the past”, Dodik said, according to FENA news agency.

“That’s not a lot of money, if you consider the time over which it was spent.”

VOA’s Bosnian service reported on Monday that the entity president spent $29,635,062,83 on lobbying efforts.

On January 17, the United States Treasury department imposed sanctions on Dodik for obstructing the implementation of the 1995 Dayton peace agreement.
