“The educational music/drama program, Battle for Vukovar – How We Defended the City and Croatia,” by authors Damir Plavšić and Damir Markuš, both Vukovar veterans, was presented in Washington. This is the beginning of its American tour. The story of the heroic city will be shown in eight cities.
Following Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia Damir Plavšić and Damir Markuš told their story about Vukovar to a Washington audience. They defended the city along with 1800 of their colleagues until November 1991. They poured pictures and emotions from the war into books and film, with one main message.
‘The message is that our children and youth must gain knowledge of their Croatian history and that it must never be forgotten. With the project we present Croatia around the world along with Croatian culture and heritage,’ noted Plavšić.” (Voice of Croatia)
“The peacekeepers with the government want to talk about a new commissioner for Agrokor after Ante Ramljak resigned.
During the day, the representatives of all major creditors of Agrokor will meet representatives of all major creditors of Agrokor during the negotiations with the Government, and Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic is expected to announce who the Government will propose as a new extraordinary trustee of the Group.
The peers are from various groups, from suppliers from domestic and foreign companies and investors’ representatives, from world banks to local bankers, but agree that they want to talk to the new commissioner before the appointment. The key meeting is that of five members of the temporary trustee who is scheduled for 15 hours.” (translated from Vecernji List)
“Croatia did not give up on INA’s purchase plan. While “Banski dvori” are still studying financial advisors for talks with the Hungarians – in the next few days, all eyes will be raised in a court in Washington where MOL is seeking $ 1 billion in compensation. There will be the testimony of former Prime Minister Ivo Sanader.
Ivo Sanader will not face ‘eye to eye’ with arbitrators in Washington – where the dispute with Hungarians is being launched for breaching a gas business contract. But, as we know it, he will also testify via the videotape from the Zagreb office of the World Bank. He will listen to him for ten days – March 8th.
The Croatian side ended up with its witnesses. They’re Hungarian. ‘There will be a whole range of witnesses to test this, however, given the fact that such proceedings are not public, names and their content will not be available,’ said Tomislav Ćorić, Energy Minister.” (Translated from Dnevnik)
