Croatia: Marking Tito’s Birthday – “Tito thieved, but he gave some of the plunder to the people …”!

Don’t think for a moment that, after reading the title of this article, you could compare Josip Broz Tito (lifelong president of former communist Yugoslavia) to Robin Hood. Robin Hood and his men, from English folklore of 19th century, are known for “robbing the rich and giving to the poor”; keeping nothing of the loot […]

Croatia: Josipovic’s helter-skelter politics

The palpably ever-present helter-skelter in the Croatian left-wing politics have shown their unsavoury face during the past week, again. It’s blatantly obvious that the head of the Croatian state, President Ivo Josipovic, just like his predecessor Stjepan Mesic has absolutely no visible strategy or ordered plan for the integration of Croatian Serbs into a desired […]
