"The fight against violence is a priority and more important than European integration and every other issue in Serbia today, because violence can lead to fascism," the president said.
Tadic made that statement at Belgrade's Republic Square, as he placed flowers and lit a candle in memory of a French soccer fan, whose death prompted a march against violence in the Serbian capital Thursday.
