A bar brawl in Montenegro has seen Russian tourists come off the worst after reportedly insulting the staff during a drunken exchange.
According to reports, a Russian national began being rude behaviour towards local people and waiters, resulting in a violent clash.
The incident had started earlier when four drunk Russians drove to the seafront, nearly missing a motorcyclist.
According to witnesses, after blocking the embankment with their vehicle, the Russians allegedly vandalised a travel agency before assaulting a waiter at a neighbouring restaurant who suffered head injuries.
The Russian citizens then allegedly began attacking the restaurant owner leading to staff intervening in order to stop more damage to the bar.

The video, which went viral on social media, shows the moment when the employees began ordering the Russians to leave and used chairs to attack them in self-defence.
It comes as the United States on Thursday imposed sanctions on roughly 120 firms and people from Russia to the United Arab Emirates to Kyrgyzstan in an effort to choke off Moscow’s access to products, money and financial channels that support its invasion of Ukraine.
The sanctions imposed by the Treasury and State departments target dozens of Russian mining, technology and munitions firms and commercial banks. In addition, a group of Kyrgyzstan-based electronics firms and its leadership were targeted as exporters of components and other technology to Russia.
A UAE-based engineering company that sent dozens of shipments of electronics to Russia was also sanctioned.

The latest sanctions build on those imposed on Russia when the U.S. and other Group of Seven nations rolled out a wave of global actions during a Japan summit in May.
The White House said the latest sanctions fall in line with an ongoing effort to tighten coordination of sanctions with allies, particularly the European Union and the United Kingdom. The effort to improve alignment was one of the major commitments made during the G7 meetings.
“As long as the war continues, we’ll continue to take these kinds of actions,” White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters Thursday. “This won’t be the end of it. And we’ll continue to explore additional sections as appropriate going forward.”
“Since Russia launched its full scale invasion of Ukraine, the United States, working with our allies and partners, has taken unprecedented steps to impose costs on Russia and promote accountability for the individuals and entities who support its illegal war,” U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement.

He said: “We will continue to stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes.”
Meanwhile, Russia has imposed travel restrictions on most British diplomats in the country, a practice reminiscent of the Soviet Union’s tight control over the movement of foreigners.
The Foreign Ministry summoned UK charge d’affaires Tom Dodd to announce the policy, saying it was “a response to the hostile actions of London, including hindering the normal functioning of Russian overseas missions in the UK”.
The ministry also said it upbraided Dodd for the UK’s support of “the terrorist actions of the Kyiv regime”.
