The press service of the Montenegrin government issued a statement, which says that they have no doubt, that the Kremlin was directly involved in the riots and mass protests in the country, which is proved by the statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Joinfo.ua reports.
“The statement issued by the Department of Information and Press of the Russian Foreign Ministry, which expressed concern over the alleged excessive use of force against “peaceful protesters,” without saying that those “peaceful protesters” were throwing Molotov cocktails on the police in an attempt to enter the parliament building by force and carry out a coups d’état, as having been reported by numerous international media, only confirms Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic’s claims about Russia’s involvement in anti-NATO protests in Podgorica”, – said the statement of the Montenegrin government.
Earlier the Russian Foreign Ministry issued the statement, in response to accusations of Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, who said that the Kremlin was involved in the unrest in the country and protests against plans of the government to join NATO. The Russian Foreign Ministry said that PM Djukanovic could not prove the fact of the involvement of Russia into the unrest there, but the authorities were trying to “to absolve himself of responsibility for the mounting standoff in Montenegro.”
The protests in Montenegro began in mid-October. Protesters demand the resignation of Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic and establishing the interim government for conducting the fair elections.
