Hoi,
We have a database with all the citations of all Wikipedias. That database
is integrated in wikidata as we speak. What we should do is eat our own
medicine and compare sources on the same subject when the subject is
controversial. Our overriding policy is for Wikipedia to have a neutral
point of view. So while Croation sources are fine, they need to be balanced
for a NPOV. When sources with a different viewpoint are available, ignoring
them is not an option.

At the same time, there are sources that have been found to be
untrustworthy. At some stage, sources, any and all sources can be assessed
and even rejected.

Admins and bureaucrats have their authority because they promise to  adhere
to the universal Wikipedia policies, the other reason is the trust their
community gave them at one time. In the end, we have the mechanisms and the
methods to assess the NPOV and the quality of articles. We have the
mechanisms and methods to assess the functioning of people who are trusted
to adhere to our policies.
Thanks,
        GerardM
