    After portal Klix reported about the statement he made at the press conference in Zagreb, minister Konaković directly called out the journalist of this portal, Senja Mahinić, saying that Mahinić is “intrigued to make a story” out of everything he (Konaković) “does personally”.

    At the same time, Milorad Dodik verbally attacked BN TV journalists at a press conference in the RS Government building. When asked by a journalist about the abuse of public functions, Dodik, instead of answering, told her that the word “fraud” should be next to her name. When journalist Vladimir Kovačević, who survived an assassination attempt in 2018, reacted to his insults, Dodik told him to “heal his frustrations somewhere else”. After that, Dodik called BN journalists Tijana Milinković and Milan Kovač “paranoid” and prevented them from asking him more questions.
