President of Serbia, Mr Aleksandar Vučić, says he’s not pleased with the circumstances of Serbian people in Montenegro. Therefore, he says that in the coming days he is going to meet with „his“ people from Montenegro. This announcement comes after the Montenegrin Government had adopted the Proposal Law on the Freedom of Religion and particularly after president of Montenegro, Mr Milo Đukanović, said that the independence of Montenegrin Orthodox Church had to be renewed. This statement has brought on near hysteria and Mr Vučić intervened.
Metropolitanate of Montenegro and the Littoral wants to oppose to the amendments to the Law on Freedom of Religion during the convocation on the Holy Trinity Day. The entire story has turned into a political story as Democratic Front interfered.
Judging by the common practice, Mr Vučić’s people DF leaders and President of the Serbian National Council in Montenegro, Mr Momčilo Vuksanović.
He said that Belgrade would try to help Serbian people in Montenegro without meddling into the internal affairs of the state.
Meeting with „his“ people pretty much sounds like meddling. Together with his people, Mr Vučić is going to come up with a message for official Montenegro which is going to be passed on Holy Trinity Day.
Mr Momčilo Vuksanović asked Mr Vučić in a letter to engage all his state capacity in order to protect Serbian Orthodox Church and Serbian national identity in Montenegro.
Metropolitanate of Montenegro and the Littoral has invited the clergy and believers to defend the faith and our sanctuary objects and all the dioceses of the Serbian Orthodox Church as they are being endangered by the provisions of the Proposal Law on Freedom of Religion, recently adopted by the Government of Montenegro.
