Hrvatska se vraća u fokus balkanske javnosti, Grbar Kitarović i Karamarko u punom napadu


Balkanski politički fokus posljednjih nekoliko godina bio je većinom fokusiran na politička dešavanja u Srbiji, gdje je Aleksandar Vučić svojom transformacijom i osvajanjem vlasti pokazao da se može uraditi dosta na pokretanju zemlje naprijed.
