Montenegro explained the decision to close the sky for Lavrov’s plane

Montenegro explained the decision to close the sky for Lavrov’s plane

Podgorica fulfilled its obligations by closing the airspace for Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who was flying to Serbia. This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country, Ranko Krivokapic.

He clarified that the decision was made by the government and the foreign ministry of the republic. According to the minister, it “was inevitable.”


Krivokapic argues that Lavrov “could get to Serbia by train,” since the Belgrade-Moscow railway connection is not prohibited.


Last week, Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Montenegro closed the skies for the plane of the Russian Foreign Minister, which was supposed to head to Serbia. Lavrov himself suggested that the Western countries are doing “very badly” since they considered his flight to Belgrade almost a threat of a universal scale. He expressed regret that some states had to act as sing-alongs.
