    Serbia has deported a group of Russians suspected of involvement in a coup plot in neighbouring Montenegro, the Guardian has learned, in the latest twist in a murky sequence of events that apparently threatened the lives of two European prime ministers.

    The plotters were allegedly going to dress in police uniforms to storm the Montenegrin parliament in Podgorica, shoot the prime minister, Milo Ðjukanović, and install a pro-Moscow party....A group of 20 Serbians and Montenegrins, some of whom had fought with Moscow-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, were arrested in Podgorica, the Montenegrin capital. In Serbia, meanwhile, several Russian nationals suspected of coordinating the plot were caught with €120,000 and special forces uniforms.According to the Belgrade daily, Danas, the Russians also had encryption equipment and were able to keep track of Đjukanović’s whereabouts.

    Montenegro seeks extradition of 2 Serbs over failed coup

    PODGORICA, Montenegro – Montenegro has urged Serbia to arrest and extradite two Serbs for their alleged involvement in a pro-Russian plot to overthrow the small Balkan country's government.

    Montenegrin Justice Minister Zoran Pazin told the Dnevne Novine newspaper Wednesday that Serbia has an obligation to "arrest persons sought by Interpol without setting any conditions."
