According to officials, the situation at Lustica is critical. The interior ministry of Montenegro asked for the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism to be activated to help extinguish the fire. Mayors of the threatened coastal towns of Kotor, Tivat, and Herceg Novi urged the government to ask neighboring nations – Croatia, Bosnia, and Serbia – to send fire-extinguishing aircraft. Well, it will be hard for Croatia to help as their coastline is also on fire.

  1. This can be terrifying attacks worldwide. We are burning all the mountains.
    Also … may be HAARP attacks with Microwaves … Generating enough heat
    on the dry floor of all these mountains.
    By last; It’s very striking … that these mountains; Are burning in the same
    shape and intensity …. In different parts of the world.
    Greetings.

  2. No forest fires in Hungary, Poland, or Check Republic. I wonder why? Could it be because Muslims are prohibited to enter those Eastern European Countries? Yes, I think so!
    If you want to stop the fires in Western Europe, expel those who are causing it: Muslims.
    You see, Muslims have only one ambition: destroy The West. Why? Because they can’t own it, or rule it, so they destroy it, in this case using fire. Wherever Muslims have emigrated in the last 14 hundred years, they have destroyed. So, what’s it going to be for you Western Europe?
