ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Croatian lawmakers have rejected a government bid to help train Ukrainian soldiers in Croatia as part of a European Union mission. The vote in parliament on Friday was held after Croatia’s president previously also had refused to sign off on the bid, saying it was not in accordance with the law. President Zoran Milanovic has been an outspoken critic of Western policies in Ukraine. He has advocated that Croatia offer only humanitarian aid to Ukraine. The European Union Assistance Mission Ukraine was established in October, envisaging that the 27-nation block’s countries offer various forms of support and training to Ukraine.
