Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, March 27, 2020 – Croatia has 16 helicopters that can help in the fight against the coronavirus if necessary, Defence Minister Damir Krstičević said after visiting a medical camp set up outside Zagreb’s KB Dubrava hospital on Friday.

A few days ago, helicopters were tested for landing, the minister said, noting that everything was ready to employ the helicopters if necessary.

As regards members of the 11th Croatian contingent whose repatriation from Afghanistan was delayed due to the situation with the coronavirus, Krstičević said that they would arrive in Croatia late in the evening aboard a Croatia Airlines plane which left Zagreb early Friday morning.

Members of the 12th contingent, who left for Afghanistan in early March, will perform their duties regularly until the end of the mission, after which they will return to Croatia, the minister said.
