MOSCOW – The Kremlin has compared Montenegrin authorities’ statements about Moscow’s alleged involvement in protests in this country with attempts “to look for a devil” and demonize Russia, TASS reports.

“It is a well-known form of entertainment for many countries to look for a devil everywhere and continue demonizing Russia,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said answering a journalist’s request to comment on Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo Dukanovic’s statement that Moscow is allegedly involved in organizing protests in Podgorica.

Peskov described the accusations as strange. “However, we hope that common sense will prevail and realistic assessments will dominate,” the Kremlin spokesman said.

Last weekend opposition protested in Montenegro’s capital Podgorica against the policy of Prime Minister Milo Dukanovic, in particular, against joining NATO.

Protesters demanded Dukanovic to resign and transitional government to be formed. They tried to break into the parliament building, threw firecrackers and bottles at the police. The police used tear gas and stun grenades in response. At least fifteen policemen and 24 protesters were injured in the demonstrations.
