Tensions in the Serbia-Croatia-Montenegro triangle

Written by on August 8, 2018 in Europe - Comments Off on Tensions in the Serbia-Croatia-Montenegro triangle
Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic recently compared 1990s Croatia with the Croatian puppet-state under Nazi occupation. On August 5, the Montenegrin military attaché in Croatia attended the official celebration of the military operation “Storm” anniversary; during that operation in 1995, more than 200 000 Serbs were expelled from Croatia.
The results: Croatian president Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic has decided to postpone her planned visit to Serbia; Serbian tabloids – which are all pro-government-  have accused Montenegro of “stabbing Serbia in the back” and of collaborating with “Ustashe”, the quisling Croatian organisation, active from 1929 and until 1945 when it was dissolved and banned. According to Serbian tabloids, the contemporary Croatia is equal to Adolf Hitler’s puppet-state.
