I appreciate Montenegro and its people as independent entity who can decide what is in their best interest. But in this case Montenegro was too hasty in EU support while waiting in front of the EU firmly closed doors. Macedonia was assured by the EU officials that EU will not retaliate because Macedonia is not joining the EU sanctions.  After all Macedonia is not EU member and  therefore not obligated to show solidarity.

I do not see haste, I soon comes to a pragmatic attitude towards the outer policy . After the Russians conducted exclusively with according to their interests .
