The honorary president of the Socialist Party of Serbia, Milutin Mrkonjić, passed away today at the age of 79. Friends and relatives arrive at the apartment in Vracar where Mrkonjic lived with his longtime partner Ana Bekut.
Zoran V., a porter in the building where Milutin Mrkonjić and Ana Bekuta live, says that Mrka’s saying was “we want to have a drink”.
“I don’t drink, but I politely declined.” Great man. The weather is like that, let’s move on. It can be seen from Ana, from her mood and facial expression, that it was very difficult for her in the previous days – says Zoran.
