Richard Brandt

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Montenegro’s plan to join NATO shows that the country has “succumbed to the ultimatum of either Russia or NATO”, according to reports.

Lavrov also noted that Montenegro’s decision jeopardizes economic and political cooperation with Russia.

According to Lavrov:

“Montenegro has succumbed to the ultimatum – either Russia or NATO and decided to ignore the economic aspect and to sacrifice relations with Russia. Let the Montenegrin and NATO leaders have this decision on their conscience.”

Next week the U.S. Senate is expected to ratify Montenegro’s bid to join NATO.
