Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and the leader of Republika Srpska Milorad Dodik both attended a remembrance memorial in the Serbian town of Novi Sad, Friday, to honour those killed during the Croatian Army (HV) action ‘Operation Storm’ in 1995.
SOT, Aleksandar Vucic, Serbian President (Serbian): “More than three quarters of Serbs disappeared in Croatia. A nation that was killed in the camps during the Second World War and was declared a minority in the early 1990s and was decimated and expelled during the “Storm” today is reduced to the level of statistical error in Croatia. Please listen to the information: Of the more than one million and two hundred thousand Serbs living in the territory of Croatia, according to the ethnic map of 1936, today there are exactly one hundred eighty-six thousand.”
SOT, Aleksandar Vucic, Serbian President (Serbian): “I’m proud today that we’re all here together. Everybody from Serbia and the Republika Srpska who decides something and that we do not let the pain of Kraine and Kraisnik be forgotten. We raised our heads. We do not want confrontation, we want peace and a future, but we do not give it to anyone, nor will we ever give to anyone, I repeat, to anyone, who humiliated us.”
SOT, Milorad Dodik, President of Republika Srpska (Serbian): “How can we believe you (Croats) when the Ustase greeting sign is still in Jasenovac (concentration camp). You did not take it down. How can you think that we do not see it and that it does not hurt us? How do you think that we are not hurt by the fact that in 1991 according to the population census in Sarajevo (capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina) were 15,0674 Serbs, and according to the 2013 population census, there is 1,333 of them.”
