MOSCOW (Sputnik) – In August, Ukrainian authorities held consultations with former Croatian officials. According to media reports, the officials from the two countries discussed the issues of "return of uncontrolled territories" and Croatia's experience in this field.
"Kiev's readiness to receive such signals is of particular concern as it [Kiev] is deliberately ignoring own well-defined obligations under the Minsk agreements. The references to any 'power scenarios' with regard to Donbass look especially flawed and immoral now, in the first days of the 'school' truce confirmed within the framework of the 'Normandy' format," the statement said.
The Russian ministry added that it called on Zagreb to influence Kiev to make it adhere to the Minsk deal.
Following the dissolution of Yugoslavia, a number of ethnic conflicts emerged across former Yugoslavian republics. In 1995, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina attacked the troops of the Republic of Serbian Krajina on the territory of the modern Croatia. As a result of the operation, thousands of Serbs were killed and hundreds of thousands fled Croatia.
