Delegation of the Army of Serbia, consisting of the Military Academy's officers, as well as the cadets of the Military Gymnasium, was barred from entering Croatia, the state RTS television reported citing the statement of the Defence Ministry for Tanjug news agency.

According to RTS, the delegation was supposed to attend the ceremony marking the Day of Jasenovac New Martyrs, the WWII victims, and its presence was previously announced.

But, the delegation members were stopped at the Batrovci-Bajakovo border crossing and underwent a control.

Their luggage contained official uniforms which, according to the Ministry, was allowed and in line with the service regulations, but Croatia's border officers said they could not take it in the country.

Although Serbian Army's representatives said they were ready to leave the uniforms and resume the trip, the border officers told them this was not the reason for the entry ban and that that they will not be allowed to enter Croatia anyway, after which they were returned to Serbia.

President Aleksandar Vucic said he had no special comment on this matter but that he understands that Croatians were not willing to remember their past and what had happened in the WWII.

Speaking to reporters in Nikinci, Vucic said he was proud of the Seb people's fight because they were fighting against occupiers.

Typical serb provocation. Same way they have started war in 🇭🇷 and got kicked in the mouth. Keep your blood stained uniforms out of free Croatia.
