Russia bans Montenegrin foreign, defense ministers from entering country

MOSCOW. Oct 14 (Interfax) - Russia has banned Montenegrin Foreign Minister Ranko Krivokapic, Defense Minister Rasko Konevic, and former National Security Agency chief Savo Kentera from entering its territory, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

Corresponding note was sent to the Embassy of Montenegro to Russia, the ministry said in a statement released on Friday.

"This measure was taken in response to yet another hostile decision made by the Montenegrin side this September to declare diplomats of the Russian Embassy in Podgorica personae non gratae," the statement said.
