Executive authority leaders slam incidents in Knin

Representatives of the executive authority on Friday evening condemned the incidents which took place in Knin after the official marking of the 21st anniversary of Operation Storm, when a group of citizens sang Ustasha songs and shouted the Ustasha salute, and the Serbian flag was also set on fire.

"Frankly, I didn't see that, but if it happened, I agree that it's inappropriate," caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Bozo Petrov said, as reported by Nova TV, adding that Croatia's independence and the homeland could be celebrated in a nice way.

Caretaker Culture Minister Zlatko Hasanbegovic said there were irresponsible individuals coming to the celebration with inappropriate insignia. "Ustasha insignia is not welcome anywhere in 2016."
