These results were created by the constitutional charter on the sovereignty and independence of the Republic of Slovenia on June 25, 1991, and thus its unilateral independence.
Two days later, the JNA units decided not to allow such an epilogue at the expense of the war and the collapse of the SFR of Yugoslavia, and on June 27, 1991, there was a conflict between the JNA forces and the newly formed Slovenian territorial defense , led by Janez Janša and Igor Bačvar. A conflict that lasted for about ten days resulted in more than 60 casualties among more than 300 wounded and eventually the army's withdrawal, recalled Blic.
