Commenting on the tweet by the Green Youth marking the 27th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, in which Croatia was named as being responsible for the genocide of Bosniaks in Srebrenica, “we condemn in the strongest terms such revisionist accusations,” the Croatian Embassy said on Twitter on Monday.

The youth organization of the Greens party, which is a member of the three-party ruling coalition, posted the tweet last week and has not removed it despite numerous warnings in the comments that it is falsifying history.

“Twenty-seven years ago today, over 8,000 people were killed in Srebrenica within a space of several days. That was part of the genocide of Bosniaks committed by Serbia and Croatia,” the Green Youth said in the tweet.

The Croatian Embassy said that such untruths “are completely unacceptable and require an apology for such fake news.”

11 July marks the anniversary of the single largest atrocity committed on European soil after the Second World War when Bosnian Serb forces massacred over 8,000 Bosniak men and boys in the UN-protected area of Srebrenica in 1995.
