Media reports ties to international organised crime but officials say wrong registration is to blame
Montenegro is expelling more than fifty Russian nationals from the country. Local media reports, the decision comes after authorities found ties to international organised crime.
Police say the Russians were detained at hotels in the cities of Podgorica and Danilovgrad. Russia's foreign ministry says they were not immediately contacted neither by Montenegrin authorities nor the detainees.
Russian officials add, Montegro police released their citizens without any charges.
Police in Montenegro say the accused are going to be deported in the near future since they did not follow the proper procedures for a prolonged stay in the country.
