@Gvarda chrome corrected me btw. not to be taken literally, but you see how your politicians act before elections. Both HDZ and SDP relay heavily on nationalistic feelings, I mean you can’t say you expected to hear Milanović proudly embracing ustaša ancestry. In fact it appears to me that HDZ is acting more rationally during these elections and that’s something I haven’t expected. In Serbia such tactics are used only by Radical Party, Dveri-DSS coalition (which have 12% together) and maybe Vulin from Movement of Socialists which is in ruling coalition (they have 3/250 PMs), not by two most powerful parties (SNS and SPS). You can see the media describing these relations as worse since war, the blame for bad relations right now falls almost entirely on Croatian politics.
