Day when Slovenia avoided military attack: 25 January 1991

A memory of today 30 years ago.

In the days when the Belgrade state printing house was printing new banknotes for Juraj, 1000 dinars, the Slovene democratic governments were rapidly equipping their armies. This went very much to the generals of the Yugoslav People's Army (YLA) and they demanded disarmament.

The Western Republics, Slovenia and Croatia, which were not yet ready for a conflict, successfully avoided the dangers of the Yugoslav People's Army due to pressure from the West and the skilful and at the same time decisive policy of their center-right governments.
