Comments and statements by Foreign Ministry Spokesman
Comment by the Information and Press Department on the completion of the procedure of Montenegro’s accession to NATO
On June 5, the procedure of Montenegro’s accession to NATO will be officially completed in Washington, DC.
We took notice of the latest volley of disinformation and propaganda clichés that Podgorica directed at Russia on the eve of this event.
The continued anti-Russian hysteria in Podgorica is only met with regret in Russia. Given the hostile line taken by Montenegro’s authorities, Russia reserves the right to take response measures on the basis of reciprocity. As in physics, in politics for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Montenegro is fully responsible for the current situation. In response to Montenegro’s unprovoked eagerness to join the EU’s anti-Russian sanctions in March 2014 the Russian Federation took symmetrical steps in August 2015.
