    The Kremlin does not know about the alleged ban on the entry of Montenegrin politicians to Russia, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Peskov was asked whether the Kremlin was aware of the alleged ban on the entry to Russia for Montenegro's Prime Minister Dusko Markovic, former Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic and the country's parliament speaker Ivan Brajovic.

    "No, [the Kremlin] does not know anything," he said.

    Earlier, Montenegrin media outlets claimed that Moscow allegedly banned several country's officials entry to Russia as they had allegedly been included in the Russian sanctions list.
