ZAGREB, May 11, 2019 – Independent Democratic Serb Party (SDSS) leader Milorad Pupovac on Saturday attended an event at a memorial park in Vukovar commemorating people killed there from 1941 to 1943 during World War II.

Answering reporters’ questions after the commemoration, Pupovac said that other political parties’ campaigns for European Parliament elections were almost invisible compared to the SDSS’s.

“We will try and work to make it stay that way, because our goal is not only to win a seat in the EP but expand the space of freedom and free people from fear as well as help Serbs in Croatia gain acceptance in the public sphere and in areas where they live,” said Pupovac.

“We believe that by doing so we are strengthening Croatia as a democratic country.”

He added that Serbs fostered the tradition of antifascism. “We support all who understand the meaning of antifascism and who recognise it in the foundations of 20th-century Europe, as well as in the foundations of 21st-century Europe and Croatia. We will work on that with everyone, whether they be Serbs, Croats or of some other ethnic background or political affiliation,” he said.

Asked to comment on President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović’s visit to Macelj, Bleiburg and Huda Jama to commemorate people killed there in the aftermath of World War II on May 8, the Day of the Liberation of Zagreb, Pupovac said: “The victory over the fascist coalition must be in the first place for everyone, including the president of the republic, and one should also find a way to commemorate people killed in the aftermath of WWII, but with the clear knowledge of what happened and why,” he said.
