The Montenegrin government imposed sanctions against Russia on Tuesday, adopting the same package of sanctions imposed by the European Union.

Podgorica daily Vijesti said that the government Political System Commission adopted the sanctions unanimously at a meeting chaired by deputy Prime Minister Dritan Abazovic.

It said that the sanctions were imposed against 696 Russian nationals, financial institutions and properties including President Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

The US embassy in Montenegro reacted to Serbian Orthodox Church Bishop Joanikije’s statement that the country is being set up to be a small Ukarine, calling all leaders of society, including Church elders, to support the Ukrainian people.
