On Sunday, Sandra Benčić paid tribute to the civilian victims of the war by laying a wreath in the Danube in Vukovar. This move was intended to recognize and regret the suffering of all those who experienced the conflict and to call for accountability for those responsible in order to build lasting peace. However, her actions were met with criticism from Most, who accused her of fostering a Yugoslav complex and being more of a Pupovac than Pupovac himself.
The group argued that Benčić’s gesture was an example of external humanism that is more dehumanizing than callousness because it serves to give a sense of superiority to the person making the gesture. They believed that recognizing the sacrifice and victory of Croatia should come before acknowledging the suffering of Serbs. Additionally, they criticized the timing of Benčić’s action, arguing that it was inappropriate to throw a wreath on that day without specifically recognizing the civilian victims that are not recognized by official Column of Remembrance.
Overall, Most labeled Benčić’s move as a quasi-leftist gesture that offended all citizens of Croatia and served as an expression of callousness. They concluded by stating that this matter is not trivial and that Pupovac is bigger than Pupovac himself for making such a gesture.
