This has been announced by the Montenegrin Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integrations, who said Rogozin was on a list of Russian citizens banned from entering Montenegro, based on the government's decision to join EU's anti-Russia sanctions.

It has also been stated that Rogozin was invited to Montenegro by DF representative Milan Knezevic, "without any consultations with competent organs of Montenegro."

Beta agency is reporting that "Montenegro accepted the sanctions introduced against Russia by western countries over the Ukrainian crisis," and that Rogozin "in the past on several occasions made threatening statements toward Montenegro due to its orientation to join NATO."
