According to him, the Montenegrins excited talking about spiritual closeness with the Russian people. “I am convinced that the feelings embodied in the poem of Vladimir Vysotsky, and which is shared by the vast majority, the vast majority of the Montenegrins, will ultimately prevail, the temporary worker will leave,” said the Minister quoted verses of Vladimir Vysotsky, which is engraved on his monument in Podgorica: “I little one birth, I would grow from two roots. It is a pity, Montenegro did not become a second homeland of mine.”
Lavrov said that the problem is the position of the President of Montenegro, Milo Djukanovic.
“the Current leader of Montenegro, who is at the head of this country for nearly 20 years, Milo Djukanovic, took an openly Russophobic position contrary to common sense, contrary to all that he did, speaking about relations with the Russian Federation. He had problems with justice in the West, in several European countries, he was accused on charges of smuggling, in my opinion, for any other sins. I do not exclude that the reason for the sudden change in his policy. Of course, if politicians are so vulnerable, they are easy to manipulate, I say this with a heavy heart,” – said the head of the Russian foreign Ministry.
