Ekspres

Weekly Ekspres started in 2016, but the company Publisher, which publishes the weekly, was already founded six months earlier, in November 2015. The owner, Goran Veselinovic, is the best man of now President Aleksandar Vucic and because of that he is considered very powerful and influential. Veselinovic also owns a PR agency Right which had taken over the most of marketing businesses in Serbia since 2012 just when Vucic's Serbian Progressive Party came to power.
