A Very Montenegrin Coup – People & Power
Last October, the prime minister of Montenegro announced that an election day plot to overthrow his government had been foiled. Pro-Russia conspirators opposed to his aim of joining NATO were alleged to be responsible and had planned to assassinate the country’s leaders.
But was this a genuine coup attempt – a sinister effort to topple a democratically elected administration and take over the country by force? Or was it, as some claim, a carefully choreographed “fake news” event, designed to win sympathy for a controversial and allegedly corrupt politician on the verge of losing public support.
We sent filmmakers Glenn Ellis and Katerina Barushka to investigate.
