At the moment in Montenegro, there are approximately 1,800 Russian citizens awaiting departure to Russia. As noted by the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, speaking on the radio station “Komsomolskaya Pravda”, Montenegro seeks to “shift the responsibility for their citizens in Russia. I think it is an absolutely clear qualification. To be evacuated from Russia, the Montenegrins on the Russian side. Also for Russian money.”
In her words, Russian airlines have provided three aircraft for exportation of citizens. However, the problem is still not solved. “Montenegro links permits the Russian side on the export of its citizens on the territory of Russia so that the Russian Federation has assumed liability for Montenegrin citizens on the territory of Russia and export of Russian side on the territoryithor of Montenegro”, said Zakharov.
