Operation "Black". Motorcyclists of the SS Division "Prinz Eugen" securing the I Battalion of the 2nd Regiment on the road near the village of Lukovo (between Nikšić and Šavnik). And in the background: flames. According to the villager Mitar Đukanović, "the houses were torched and the entire property was looted". The same witness also stated that, "without any guilt, Velika Drašković (aged 30) and her daughter Zorka (aged 4) were thrown alive into a burning house". The regiment was sent from Podgorica via Nikšić to Šavnik on 27 May, and it captured the objective two days later (29 May), after fierce fighting against the Partisan V Proletarian Brigade (III Division). Along the way, 10 villages were burnt down – and, right afterwards, in the same area, seven more.

Operacija "Crno". Motociklisti SS-divizije "Princ Eugen" obezbeđuju I bataljon 2. puka na putu kod sela Lukova (između Nikšića i Šavnika). A u pozadini: plamen. Prema izjavi seljaka Mitra Đukanovića, "kuće su popaljene i sva imovina opljačkana". Isti svedok je izjavio i da su "bez ikakve krivice Velika Drašković (30 godina) i njena kćer Zorka (4 godine) bačene žive u zapaljenu kuću". Puk je poslat iz Podgorice preko Nikšića prema Šavniku 27. maja, i cilj je zauzeo dva dana kasnije (29. maja), posle žestokih borbi protiv partizanske V proleterske brigade (III divizije). Usput je spaljeno 10 sela – i odmah potom, u istom kraju, još sedam.
