MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Djukanovic claimed in an interview last week that Russia allegedly played an active role in organizing anti-government protests in his country.
"Djukanovic did not provide any concrete facts of alleged Russian involvement in the inflation of social tensions in Montenegro and could not provide them, because these facts do not exist," the statement read.
The Montenegrin prime minister's allegations caused "deep bewilderment," the foreign ministry said.
The brutal dispersal of protesters prompted the Russian Foreign Ministry to criticize Montenegrin government anti-free speech actions as regrettable. Moscow also condemned the country’s fast-track course toward NATO accession.
