Serbia: Decision regarding 2014 participation expected next week?

With Croatia withdrawing, Greece and Cyprus on the edge of withdrawing, it looks like Serbia is now also having trouble and thus may leave the contest...

Due to financial problems RTS, the Serbian broadcaster, are currently on the edge of liquidation and 8 million Euros is outstanding to suppliers and staff salaries - and even with advertisements and license fees from citizens there still may not be enough money to support the broadcaster fully, hence there will be several cuts... Their financial situation is terrible. An RTS spokesmen, Duška Vučinić, said:
“more information on Serbia’s participation at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest will be known at the end of next week”.
Plus is doesn't help they didn't qualify in Malmo, and viewing figures are dropping every year... Could another Balkan country be about to withdraw?
