The civic initiative “Let’s Save Sinjajevina” has called on the Ministry of Defense of Montenegro to sign a contract with North Macedonia on the use of the polygon Krivolak for its needs.
This civic initiative reacted to the Defense Ministry's claims that military exercises on Sinjajevina will not cause any negative environmental consequences.
We received the news that the analysis of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of North Macedonia, done after the international "Determined Impact" exercise at their Krivolak polygraph show that there is no pollution, and therefore we call on the Ministry of Defense of Montenegro to sign a contract with that country on the use of that space for its needs. The news of the Ministry of Defense is yet another proof that Montenegro, with the support and assistance of 28 NATO allies, as well as the countries with polygons, can avoid the destruction of part of its territory in Sinjajevina and use military polygons in the region. Citizens of Montenegro are already placing millions of funds for the defense sector, so some of them can be spent on renting a polygon for the needs of our army," the statement of GI “Let’s Save Sinjajevina” said.
They called on citizens to join them in a protest scheduled for 12 July at 12 pm on Sava waters on Sinjajevina.
"We invite citizens to visit the queen of Montenegro's mountains and meet with its beauty," the statement concludes.
