Awards Presented to Serbian MOD and SAF Personnel

Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin, Chief of the General Staff of the Serbian Armed Forces, General Ljubisa Dikovic, and Secretary-General of the Association of Serbian Insurers (ASI) Dusko Jovanovic presented money prizes to several members of the Serbian Ministry of Defence (MOD) and Armed Forces (SAF) personnel for their outstanding deeds and achievements. Awards were given in six categories, specifically best military, best civilian, best healthcare worker, best researcher as well as for a heroic deed and achievements in the field of culture, tradition and sports. Award-winners were Djokica Petrovic, Milan Pavlovic, Sasa Dimitrijevic, Milan Milosevic, Miroslav Potic and Srdjan Ristic respectively. The award-winners in all six categories have each received RSD 100,000 and the prize money was provided by the Association of Serbian Insurers. Expressing his deep sense of gratitude to the Association of Serbian Insurers for affording its support and finances, Minister Vulin highlighted that whenever Serbia demonstrated that members of the Serbian Armed Forces were understood, respected and valued, it meant a lot to them. Vulin added that the ASI had shown its appreciation of the difficult and honourable lives led by military men and women. ASI Secretary-General Dusko Jovanovic stressed that it was only a beginning of mutually satisfactory cooperation. Jovanovic noted that the ASI wanted to let the people working in challenging conditions know that their efforts were recognized and appreciated. He also promised that the ASI would continue allocating funds and parts of its proceeds so that the best could be awarded and to provide assistance to those that needed it most. The Association of Serbian Insurers signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Defence at the insurance gathering “Serbian Insurance Days” held in Arandjelovac in late November 2017. This MoM has allowed companies from the insurance industry, headed by the Association of Serbian Insurers, to provide financial assistance to the best members of the Serbian Armed Forces as well as to the best employees of the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs. The ASI already donated one million RSD for award-winning employees of the Ministry of Labour beginning of this year.
