In Vukovar the 28th anniversary of the death of Blago Zadro, a symbol of Vukovar citizens' resistance, was marked today.
President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović told those gathered that she respects the three part division of authority, but she can say with every right that the judiciary is too slow in resolving cases of unprocessed war crimes.
“I simply can't understand why the Croatian judiciary has still not addressed Vukovar, Boro Selo or numerous other Croatian tragedies, while other issues are urgently placed on the agenda that introduce new divisions. The future is always in a certain manner defined by the past and I would like the future here to be a future of unity,” said President Grabar-Kitarović.
Minister of defence Damir Krstičević noted how important it was to the return of the Croatian military to Vukovar.
“My message is that General Blago Zadro was a man with a big heart, a true patriot, a man of the people, and a man that led his soldiers by personal example. That is the character of the Croatian military. You saw many Croatian soldiers here today, you know that the Croatian military is here, that this government returned the Croatian military to Vukovar and today we are developing the Croatian military on the foundations of the Homeland War,” said Krstičević.
