The United States and NATO are engaged in proxy warfare against Russia on the territory of Ukraine, Croatian President Zoran Milanovic said addressing a news conference in the country’s eastern city of Vukovar, APA reports citing TASS.

"Washington and NATO are waging a proxy war against Russia with the help of Ukraine," said Milanovic.

The Croatian president also said he saw no sense in the introduction of sanctions against Moscow.

"The plan should not be about removing [Russian President Vladimir] Putin. The plan should not be about sanctions. Sanctions are absurd and we can achieve nothing using them," Milanovic continued.

"They could not even overpower [Slobodan] Milosevic… They are shifting from one war to another. But how should I feel - a slave of America?" the Croatian president said.

Earlier, the Croatian parliament did not support the government’s proposal to provide the Ukrainian military with the opportunity to train in the republic.

Milanovic also spoke earlier against the training of Ukrainian servicemen on the Croatian territory. According to him, the military training of Ukrainian servicemen in EU countries posed dangerous consequences.
