Army’s General Staff building in Belgrade sold to a cousin of Trump’s son-in-law

Aleksandar Jovanović of the Ekološki Ustanak political organization said yesterday that the Serbian Construction Minister, Goran Vesić, had signed on behalf of the Serbian government, a memorandum of understanding which stipulates that the building that housed the Serbian Army’s HQ in Belgrade, which was destroyed in the 1999 NATO bombing, was “given away” to the American offshore companies Kushner Realty and Atlantic Incubation Partners LLC.

Jovanović added that Kushner Realty had been registered in Delaware – “a tax haven for offshore companies,” on March 8, at the address of Jonathan Kushner, a cousin of Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of the former U.S. president Donald Trump.

Jovanović also said that Ekoloski Ustanak had received a copy of the memorandum from the Ministry of Defence, which had received the document on February 9.

“This is about the revitalization and – as it is written there – the development of the location of the General Staff building, whatever that entails”, said Jovanović.

The memorandum stipulates that the Kushner Company and its sister company are approved to enter a free 99-year lease agreement in that location and once the 99-year lease expires, the company will become the building’s owner.  

“This is like Belgrade Waterfront all over again”, Jovanović noted and invited the Serbian government to publicise the relevant document in its entirety and without delay. He also reminded that in 2005, the building was declared a monument of culture.

The lawyer Danijela Nestorović from Ekološki Ustanak said that the memorandum was shocking and that, following its decree adopted on December 1, 2022, the Government authorized Vesić to sign that memorandum “which has not been posted on the government’s official website”.
