The families of those killed in the fire near Volujica will be accommodated in a resort in another city. Tonight, they took buses to temporary accommodation from the camp in Šušanj, where they were staying, and with them were representatives of the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare, led by Minister Naida Nišić.

In front of the camp next to "Amphora" in the Bar settlement of Šušanj, there was also the director of the Center for Social Work for Bar and Ulcinj, Biljana Pajović, and the president of the non-governmental association "Women of Bar with a Big Heart", Ljiljana Vujović, who was invited by members of these families.

That NVU provided them with baby formula, feeding bottles and medicine for the trip tonight, as per their request.

Nišić told "Vijesta" that in cooperation with the Municipality of Bar, the Prime Minister and the Government, as well as the Center for Social Work, they made a decision to place the families in one of the resorts owned by the state.

"They will have food, heating and all other hygiene needs there. To begin with, this is our first step, so that we can sit down on Monday, put all the options on the table and make a strategic plan," she said.

According to her, the Municipality of Bar, the Center for Social Work, the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights and the Council of Roma in Montenegro will be involved in the creation of that plan.

Nišić said that after they see what the real situation is, they will decide on the best solution that they can offer.

"We've been here all day today, we've been waiting for a moment that suits them to start, we also respected their feelings, their request, which was for everyone to stay together, that is, to be in one place," the minister told "Vijesta" and added that this condition was met.

In the resort, not only members of families who lived below Volujica will be accommodated, but also families next to "Amphora" and from Sokolana, confirmed Nišić. She pointed out that after everything that happened, they cannot allow those people to remain in potential danger of another fire.

The "Vijesti" journalist was on the ground when the family members of the deceased were preparing to leave. They had certain doubts and questions that mostly concerned when they would be able to return to the Bar.

Nišić promised them that Bar is their place of residence and that this is a temporary solution until the conditions are met for them to return to their city.

"Communication with the local administration is at the highest possible level, we share empathy for everything that happened, and we will declare concrete agreements after we sit down at a desk and see their and our possibilities", she concluded.

The promise from both sides, as she said, is that they will work together to ensure that this problem never happens again.
