Slovenia celebrates Independence and Unity Day today. It marks the day, exactly 30 years ago, when the results of Slovenia's independence referendum were announced. 95% of the voters voted in favour of independence from Yugoslavia. From the Presidential Palace, President Borut Pahor addressed the nation today. He said we were ending a difficult year, and called for more unity and cooperation in the future. Due to the coronavirus restrictions, there will be no public independence celebrations this year.
