svarun / patria 8x8 - 20090925_7529
This photo I took yesterday. By coincidence I spotted a convoy of armored vehicles Patria 8×8 that stopped at a rest stop Barje on a highway in Ljubljana. I took few pictures just upon their departure. Yesterday Slovenian army declared that Slovenian name for Patria AMV 8×8 is Svarun. Only when I was editing pictures I noticed that a truck parked beside is wearing a sign Finec (a guy from Finnland). Extraordinary coincidence.

You can see my other images of Patria in my

  2. However we are still waiting for the so called evidence. It has only been a year. It seems like your journalist is a scam artist instead.

  4. I didn’t say all your journalists, just a particular one you’ve praised to the extend to give him some medal of honor. It is just worth pointing out that there is still no evidence after a year. Is this standard for Mladina? Just wondering.

  5. Just to be clear what I am talking about: “I believe all alegations are real and hard evidence will come out in a month or so when Finish police will hand them out to Finish Prosecutors. Let’s face it we were not shocked by Janez Janša being involved in the affair, because there was many many rumors, some witnesses, books and documents claiming that J.J. had a history in arm trade in 90s, but we were shocked that somebody said it loud and publicly point the finger.”

    This was written in September of 2008. Some of us are shocked that there is no evidence after a month or so or even after a year. Is this what journalism is? It almost looks like it is Mladina who spreads these rumors and people are starting to believe that people there were paid to spread these allegations. Corruption rumors galore.

  6. first thing’s first; writtings on this blog are my personal opinions and not Mladina’s. If you want to discuss Mladina’s point of view send them a letter of a reader on
    Second you’re right I made a mistake expecting the evidence to come out in a month or so. Finnish trial is starting so I’ll wait for that. If I may, thank you very much.
