Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic said on Monday evening that Croatia had shown refugee crisis as a modern, civilized, humane and well-organized western circle, which "did not work with refugees in the interest of their interests nor allowed the lives of their citizens."
We did not want to raise panic, we knew what we were doing, Milanovic replied to the question of changing plan A to plan B.
