Croatia President issues Ukraine statement in spirit of Russian propaganda
This was announced by the President of Croatia, Zoran Milanovic, Reuters reports, according to Ukrinform.
"It is obvious that Crimea will never be part of Ukraine again," Milanovic said.
He also criticized the EU's policy towards Ukraine, noting that he does not want his country to face the "devastating" consequences of war. In particular, Milanovic spoke out against the provision of modern main battle tanks to Ukraine as it would allegedly only bring Russia and China closer together.
In Croatia, the president performs mainly ceremonial functions. Since taking the president’s office in February 2020, Milanovic has consistently voiced anti-European statements, sharing his views with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
Also in December, Croatian lawmakers rejected a proposal for the country to join the European Union's mission to support the Ukrainian Army, revealing deep differences between Milanovic and Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic.
