Russian Foreign Ministry: anti-government protests in Montenegro do not threaten stability in the country

The Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement regarding multi-day protests in Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro. The department considers these actions to be an internal affair of the republic and “does not see in them a threat to stability,” since they pass “in accordance with democratic standards,” reports REGNUM.

At the same time, the Russian department points to the fact that not all citizens of Montenegro share the “anti-Russian policy line”, as well as “the desire of the country's leadership to join NATO as soon as possible.”

The Montenegrin media, citing sources, noted that the government of the republic positively assessed the reaction of Moscow to the events in Podgorica. Representatives of the Cabinet acknowledged that “not yet an absolute majority supports the desire of the leadership to join the NATO bloc,” while they categorically rejected accusations of conducting an “anti-Russian policy”.

According to the agency, the protest in the capital of Montenegro began on September 27. Its organizer is the Democratic Front. The demonstrators are unhappy with government policies and demand the resignation of Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic.

      We shouldn't even come close there: the stench from the "democratic media" will not come back later - they will say that Russia has aggressive intentions.
      Let them swim in their own der, enough of us kaklov, Serbs and Bulgarians: in the grave to see such "brothers" in Russia.

    Well, in general, the current government in Montenegro is openly pro-Western and anti-Russian. They supported the sanctions. So there’s nothing wrong with the protests there for us

      THAT IS EXACTLY. The people do not want to join NATO. They do not want to be oriented toward the West. The current government is promoting these topics ...

    at the same time, they categorically rejected the accusations of pursuing an “anti-Russian policy”.
    But what about the fact that Montenegro was one of the first to support anti-Russian sanctions ?!
    These "brothers" have already begun to overtake each other in the competition to please Uncle Sam!
    Some Bulgarians are worth what - "running ahead of the locomotive" with anti-Russian cries.

    "During the years of power of Milo Djukanovic, a completely capable" society-forming "corruption system has been formed, and the almost official status of Montenegro as the" main smuggler "of Europe (the competition here goes with the already completely boundless Albania) allows many segments of the population to lead a relatively calm life. and income is lost by those who are associated with the usual tourism business and heavy industry. But they were also largely tied to smuggling, if only because of the supply of various goods and raw materials. and sees accession to the EU and NATO as an additional opportunity for the development of an already familiar business."

    The State Department is capricious! Montenegro's guide to Uncle Sam's sirloin licking passion can only be matched by Ukraine. But Uncle Sam didn't like something, probably the language is not as enveloping as Poroshenko's, so he took up his usual. With all the understanding of my insignificance in comparison with the shining ship of the stronghold of democracy, I still risk recalling Pushkin's brilliant tale "About the Fisherman and the Fish". The good is the enemy of the best. Otherwise, it would not have turned out like with ISIL.

    And this is what you need ??? wassat To NATO? In the SCO? WEIGHT? In the CSTO? In BRICS? Yes, even in the Communist Party of the whole country! Nothing will change anywhere!
    It seems that their logic is straightforward, like a crowbar: -we will bump a little, and then someone will pull up the thread with the dough and "cookies"!
    The Russian Foreign Ministry made it clear that there would be no "cookies" from Russia. They are funny, these "professional protestors"!

      The people there, in truth, are Brothers to us. They respect GDP, Russia very much ... But the government is pursuing a policy of joining NATO, hence the support of sanctions. It will not support the people on this topic, it will take to the streets.
