Supporters believe that the failed mutiny attempt of the Pro-Russian coup in order to give Montenegro to NATO. Opponents — that this is a provocation of power against them. In the organization of the coup accuse the Serb Alexander Sindzhelich who fought in the Donbass. Russia denies its involvement, but if you look closely, it appears that opportunities to build a new Russian world more than it seems.
Russian revolt in Montenegro: what was it?
The Cossacks and “Night wolves”
A month before the parliamentary elections in September, in the Orthodox Church tourist Kotor was the big Cossack circle on which 26 of the Cossack delegates from the Balkans chose the chieftain for the new Balkan Cossack troops. The gathering was attended by the delegate of the Union of volunteers of Donbass, former Deputy commander of border troops of the self-proclaimed Lugansk people’s Republic Viktor zaplatyn, which is still in the 90s fought in the former Yugoslavia. In the last month before the election, the Cossacks created in the Montenegrin town of Kotor Cossack army under the leadership of Zaplatina.
A few months before, on the eve of Easter Sunday, the Cossacks participated in the delivery in Serbia and Montenegro, the Holy fire from Jerusalem. This event for the second year in a row arranges the Fund of Saint Basil the Great Russian businessman Konstantin Malofeev — he helped the Cossacks, who fought for militias in the Donbass. Here were bikers from the local branch of the club “Night wolves” Alexander Zaldostanov.
“This is the biggest biker club in the world, it is more than 40 thousand people,” — says Radomir Pocuca — a former presenter and volunteer in the DNR, a member of the motorcycle club “Night wolves” — “They exist in all Orthodox countries, they adhere to the right principles in terms of preserving the moral values and our Slavic unity”.
That the Serbian bikers met with Putin during his visits to Belgrade.
The organizers of the “coup”
Among the tattoos of Radomir Pocuca — next to the emblem of the “Night wolves” — the emblem of the Russian Federation. To protect the Russian world, the former anchorman went to Donbass. There he became acquainted with Alexander Sindzhelich arrested now as a recruiter of the conspirators. “I have no positive opinion of Sindjelic,” says Pachachi, “I remember how he was mouthing off to the other Serbian volunteer Zivkovic, I don’t like this behavior, it’s a mutual claim of the Chetniks, they were competing who has more”.
Sindzhelich went to fight in the Donbass. He was invited to Montenegro the Chetniks, together with the Cossacks in the Crimea before the referendum.
Another Serb volunteer Ukrainian war — Dejan Beric is sure Sindzhelich would like to substitute the fighters. “Sindzhelich says now, as he was in the Donbas, as he was the commander, how to fight. But he was never in the Donbass, but can come as a tourist for a day or two”. Berič adds that Sindzhelich worked for the Montenegrin authorities, when sat in prison. 10 years ago, he was the instigator of the revolt of prisoners in the city of NIS. Then he managed to negotiate a truce with the head of the Serbian special forces Bratislav Digicam — also arrested today as an accessory in the case of a coup in Montenegro.
“Brother Dikica is the “Night wolves,” says Pocuca — “Dikic with them closely communicated, especially in a Niche where wolves headquarters, Sextone they met with the Russian “wolf” when he was in Moscow.”
Thus, the organizer of the coup the former police Dikic associated with the recruiter, and with the bikers from “Night wolves”.
At the end of 2015, Dikic resigned from the interior Ministry and became a public politician. In the Serbian city of Novi Sad North of Belgrade, he was invited to lead the Patriotic movement.
Secretary of the Union of war veterans of Serbia željko Vukelić said that he personally called Dikika for the post of head movements: “I liked him very much for his pledge that under his command was brought by the gendarmerie that Kosovo is heart of Serbia and the mother of the Serbian people”. It is because of this oath, according to the Vukelić, Dikici was removed from the post of head of the Serbian gendarmerie.
Both legs of Vukelić mine suffered from shrapnel in the war with Croatia in the Serbian Krajina, but no compensation from the state he received. Then decided to create a movement to protect the rights of veterans of the Yugoslav wars. Veterans gathered campaign rallies for Digicha, but a few days before the Montenegrin elections, he severed relations with them.
According to the Vukelić, Dikic very sick. “I know that he is very ill, he had an operation for a malignant tumor. He had a serious operation on his throat and the esophagus and even to say it was hard for him,” said Vukelić. “In March we organized a protest against NATO in the Niche he was doing and it was hard for him to communicate.”
Two weeks after the rally, the politician visited Moscow, received a Charter from the FSB and published an enthusiastic report on the trip. However, it turns out that the photo was taken at competitions on Sambo-70, and Dikic was just sitting on the jury.
Russian politicians and Serbian nationalists
Russian Institute for strategic studies, created by the presidential Administration, recently held a conference in Tskhinvali, which was called and representatives of Serbia, for example, Mladen Obradovic. Recently he was interviewed in Moscow on the case of Ilya Goryachev, who was sentenced to life imprisonment for his activities in the militant organization of Russian nationalists. “Ilya Goryachev 15 years ago came to Belgrade, we saw each other. I feel sorry for him personally,” — said Obradovic — “I’m unaware of any other circumstances associated with the fact that Ilya has accused Russia… It was familiar to me, as a patriot, who loves Serbia and Serbian people”
Thus, the presidential Institute conducts joint activities with right-wing Serbian organization “Obraz”, while in Russia their followers are judged.
The Montenegrin opposition is also a lot of contact with Russia — including Russian party “Rodina”. In the October elections to the Montenegrin Parliament, after which the alleged planned coup, the opposition premiers Milo Djukanovic parties United in the Democratic front.
The leader of the Democratic front Zlatna Radanovich believes the coup statement. “Those who were arrested are workers. Someone Gonchar, someone flooring put somebody painter” — he said — “They might actually accidentally came to hand: just went to the Montenegrin Ostrog monastery to the relics of St. Basil.”
No matter what they say, the Montenegrin opposition politicians linked the contacts with Russia as well as the Serbian right. Some of them now accused of a coup attempt in Montenegro. And even if he was provoked, not Russia, to create and realize such a scenario would not be difficult.
