Russian government was not involved into an alleged attempt to kill Montenegro's Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, the Kremlin spokesman said on Monday.

"We, obviously, categorically deny a possibility of official involvement into arranging any illegal actions," Dmitry Peskov said in a response to a question on the investigation into a plot to kill Djukanovic.

A special prosecutor investigating an alleged plot to sway last month's election in Montenegro said on Sunday a group of "Russian nationalists" had planned to assassinate the prime minister to get an opposition party into power.
