Djukanovic’s office: Instead of commenting on the reactions, we will quote a few quotes from Atanasij Jevtic’s statements

“These are just excerpts from the long-standing public announcement of Bishop Atanasij, who is one of the top intellectuals and the greatest clergymen of the 20th and 21st centuries for the Prime Minister of Montenegro.”

The cabinet of the President of Montenegro, Milo Đukanović, reacted to the allegations of the Prime Minister Zdravko Krivokapić and the Minister of Finance and Social Welfare Milojko Spajić.

The reaction of the President’s Cabinet states that Tweet Djukanovic, in which he stated his position on the recent departure of Krivokapic and members of the Government to the funeral of Atanasij Jevtic in Trebinje during the pandemic, and his yesterday’s emphasis on his right to privacy as a believer, and the Prime Minister’s claim that this government would not exist if it had not borrowed 750 million euros on the first day, “the Metropolitan responded by e-mail to the address of the President’s Cabinet, and the Prime Minister and his Minister of Finance publicly.”

They add that instead of commenting on those reactions, “for now” they will cite only a few quotes from the statements of Atanasij Jevtić.

“In whose defense the Metropolitanate of Montenegro and the Littoral unreservedly stands, when the Montenegrin Prime Minister and his Government mourn, so let the public judge:

– “…. This war was defensive and heroic as far as the Republika Srpska is concerned… Better a war than peace that separates us from God: peace that separates us from God is a false peace ”/ 1992 /

– “Mr. Djukanovic, when did that famous nation become? You were created as a nation by Lenin, that Jew, unfortunately… We couldn’t take anything from them in 1918, because they didn’t even exist as a nation… “/ January 2020 /”

– “There are people with unpleasant sweat, what to do, poor Muslims because they eat tallow. Do you know what happened in the village of Brdarica? The man was good, he stopped people at home, passengers .. One morning he stopped by two… clean woman, service, but she was upset, alas, I’m sorry, I cleaned, I’m sorry what stinks to me… They left and the man said: crazy one, they stink, and not a room. Were Muslims, the poor one didn’t know ”(2004)

– “Don’t make us angry, because we can take the life of Saint Vasilije Ostroški and transfer it to Herzegovina, to his birthplace” / April 2020 / “, it is stated in the reaction of the President’s Office.

They point out that these are “only excerpts from the long-standing public announcement of Bishop Atanasij, who is one of the top intellectuals and the greatest clergymen of the 20th and 21st centuries for the Prime Minister of Montenegro.”

“The malicious, populist statement of the Minister of Finance is, as usual, an unfounded fabrication,” the reaction concludes.
