Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Some resistance (I can't find anything in the Western "free" press)
With tensions growing on the border between Russia and Ukraine, Croatian President Zoran Milanovic has announced that Zagreb will pull its troops out of NATO contingents stationed in the region should the situation spiral into a full-scale conflict.

Speaking on Tuesday in a televised address, the leader said he sees "reports that NATO - not a separate state, not the US - is increasing its presence and sending reconnaissance ships."

He insisted that Zagreb's authorities "have nothing to do with it and we won't have anything to do with it, I guarantee you that."

According to HINA (Croatian government news agency) he also said that Ukraine should never become member of NATO and that the current "crisis" between Ukraine and Russia is mostly due to internal US politics.

He also criticised Croatian prime minister, former Ukrainian president Yanukovytch and apparently everyone who thinks Ukraine can be distanced from Russia and become wealthy at the same time.

Now, why wouldn't that be reported in "free" press?

The Croatians might have a precise idea of what Nato can do (https://www.rfi.fr/fr/podcasts/la-marche-du-monde/20220121-guillaume-ancel-%C3%A9crire-pour-ne-pas- subir is discussing the way he felt betrayed both by the French gov for letting the Serbs commit massacres but also how the NATO planes were flying -but ordered to take pictures).
