1. Weapons come to Croatia


(25. Jan 1991 - 25. Jan 1991)

Yugoslavia entered 1991 in the context of serious tensions, both between the federal authorities and leaders of its republics, and among the national leaders themselves. While the federal government accused the Serbian leadership of appropriating Yugoslav hard currency reserves, the military was attempting to curb Croatia from arming. Croatian authorities justified their armament with growing incidents, including the arrest of Željko Ražnatović Arkan while he was smuggling weapons there. At the height of this debate, held at the session of the Yugoslav Presidency on January 25, Belgrade television aired a program prepared by the Information Section of the Defense Ministry, consisting of an inflammatory collage of secret recordings on the Croatian weapons program. The tension in the country reached a boiling point.
