ZAGREB, Aug 4, 2020 – On the eve of Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day and War Veterans Day and the central commemoration in Knin, Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic laid wreaths at Zagreb’s central Mirogoj cemetery with the message that the government is paying tribute to all who gave the most for the country’s freedom.

PM Plenkovic, Deputy Parliament Speaker Zeljko Reiner and the head of the prime minister’s office, Zvonimir Frka-Petesic, laid wreaths at the Wall of Pain monument, the Central Cross in the Alley of Fallen Croatian Homeland War Defenders, the grave of Croatia’s first president Franjo Tudjman, and at the common grave of unidentified victims of the 1991-95 war.

Plenkovic said the government especially remembered the operation that enabled the liberation of the then occupied areas and helped create conditions for the subsequent reintegration of the Croatian Danube River region and restoration of Croatia’s territorial integrity.

“That is why I’m glad that tomorrow we will all be in Knin to mark the 25th anniversary of Operation Storm,” he said.
