BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbian police have arrested two Serbs sought by Montenegro for alleged involvement in a pro-Russian plot to overthrow the Balkan country’s government.
Police said Friday that Nemanja Ristic and Predrag Bogicevic were arrested on an international warrant issued by Montenegro. It wasn’t immediately clear when they could be extradited.
Montenegro also has issued warrants for the arrest of two Russians for alleged “terrorist” activities, including plans to kill the prime minister on election day in October.
The Kremlin has denied involvement, but has actively supported local groups opposed to Montenegro’s membership in NATO.
