Montenegro declares another Russian diplomat "non-grata"! He is given 7 days to leave the country
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Montenegro announced on Friday, August 12 that it had declared another Russian diplomat 'non grata' due to his activities that contravene the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
An official note on this decision, in which the deadline of seven days for leaving the territory of Montenegro was determined, was delivered to the Russian ambassador to Montenegro, Vladislav Maslenikov.
This brings to six the number of Russian diplomats expelled from Montenegro in the last six months. In early April, four Russian diplomats from the Russian embassy in Montenegro were declared persona non grata.
Previously, on March 4, another diplomat from the Russian embassy in Podgorica was declared persona non grata on the grounds that the security authorities assessed that his activities are in violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
As a reciprocal measure, on March 24, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia declared a diplomat from the Montenegrin embassy in Moscow persona non grata.
Diplomatic relations between Montenegro and Russia have deteriorated since 2014, when Podgorica joined European Union sanctions imposed on Moscow over its annexation of Crimea.
They were further aggravated after the attempted violent change of power in Montenegro in October 2016, for which two Russian citizens Eduard Shismakov and Vladimir Popov, as well as eight Serbian citizens, were accused. This case is related to the attempt to prevent the membership of Montenegro in the NATO Alliance.
Montenegro became a member of NATO in 2017, during the government of the Social Democratic Party, which was severely criticized by official Moscow./ Taken from REL
