Representatives of the executive authority on Friday evening condemned the incidents which took place in Knin after the official marking of the 21st anniversary of Operation Storm, when a group of citizens sang Ustasha songs and shouted the Ustasha salute, and the Serbian flag was also set on fire.
"Frankly, I didn't see that, but if it happened, I agree that it's inappropriate," caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Bozo Petrov said, as reported by Nova TV, adding that Croatia's independence and the homeland could be celebrated in a nice way.
Caretaker Culture Minister Zlatko Hasanbegovic said there were irresponsible individuals coming to the celebration with inappropriate insignia. "Ustasha insignia is not welcome anywhere in 2016."
