The value of the commercial contract with this company is a total of EUR 250 million, of which EUR 220 million for the construction of the Kuzmin-Sremska Raca section (100 million for the new bridge on the Sava and 120 million for the highway section) and EUR 5 million for the project-technical documentation for the project.
Also, EUR 25 million is meant for the project-technical documentation on the Pozega-Uzice-Kotroman section, the second leg of the highway to Sarajevo.
When asked by the press if the Government of Serbia controlled donations to Srebrenica, Brnabic said that the government conducted all the related activities with its partners from Republika Srpska and the local self-government. She added that the funds were being used in the best way possible.
