Montenegro was an ally of Russia in the Russo-Japanese war. In 1904 Montenegro declared war on Japan in support of Russia, however did not dispatch any significant forces. Volunteers from Montenegro were sent to fight in the Russian Army in Manchuria. In the peace treaty following the war, Montenegro was excluded from the treaty and a state of war continued to exist between the two countries.
