ZAGREB, Aug 9, 2020 – Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS) president Milorad Pupovac said in Sunday’s edition of the Vecernji List daily that he would attend a commemoration for Croatian war victims in Skabrnja to share the pain of the locals.

“For a long time, I’ve felt the need to share with my cousins and dear people the pain over the killing in Skabrnja. That’s where I come from,” he was quoted as saying.

In the interview, Pupovac spoke of his view of the August 5 anniversary of the 1995 military Operation Storm and the messages President Zoran Milanovic and Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic sent from there, which were conciliatory and a big step towards the future.

He also spoke of the criticisms from Belgrade and his sharp reply to Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic and other politicians in Serbia who called the SDSS “traitors” because Deputy PM Boris Milosevic attended the anniversary.

Pupovac also sharply criticised Croatian Foreign Minister Gordan Grlic Radman, saying he was insulting in a comment on Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic’s statements in the wake of the anniversary by claiming that Serbs in Croatia “don’t need a mentor from the side.”
