Bulgaria has started supplying aid to Montenegro due to the invasion

Bulgaria has started delivering basic foodstuffs to Montenegro to help the country make up for shortages caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Montenegrin media reported.

Several trucks carrying foodstuffs provided by Bulgaria have already arrived, public broadcaster RTCG Montenegro's agriculture minister Aleksandar Stijovic as saying on Wednesday.

"Bulgaria has proposed to sell Montenegro abundant quantities of very high-quality foodstuffs, including flour, cereals and animal feed under better conditions even than Serbia," Stijovic said.

Montenegro's Prime Minister Zdravko Krivokapic said earlier this week that Bulgaria and Romania have expressed willingness to support Podgorica in making up for the lack of basic foodstuffs caused by the Russian war on Ukraine. "At the moment, Montenegro is most dependent on Serbia. It is always good to have alternative solutions," Krivokapic said on the sidelines of a meeting of the heads of government of NATO member states in Southeast Europe held in Bulgaria's capital Sofia.

Earlier this month, Montenegro's government asked Serbia to allow exports of certain quantities of vegetable oil, flour and wheat to the country and back Podgorica in securing basic foodstuffs amid disruptions in supply chains caused by the war in Ukraine.
