In Belgrade Yugoslavia this week, Serbian Premier Mirko Marjanovic denied that Yugoslavia was on the brink of a severe economic crisis and fended off accusations that the government will soon be forced to devaluate the country’s currency. Marjanovic also accused the United States of working with opposition groups in the country to sell out Yugoslavia’s sovereignty for international loans and private investment. His statements come as State Television in Yugoslavia has launched a massive propaganda campaign to convince people that the country is recovering rapidly from NATO’s bombardment. But as Democracy Now Correspondent Jeremy Scahill reports from Belgrade, people on the streets aren’t buying it.
