President Igor Dodon and Artists Criticized for Taking Part in an Event, Ignoring Social Distancing and not Wearing Masks

Criticism against the artists and President Igor Dodon, who recently returned from Russia, continues after Dodon participated in an event on August 24, and took group photos in Butuceni, the center of Moldova, without keeping the distance recommended by specialists and without wearing protective masks. Several Internet users recall the restrictions imposed in the context of the epidemiological situation, given that the number of new cases of COVID-19 registered last week was the highest so far.

Some noted that recently due to complications caused by the new coronavirus, a 38-year-old police employee died, the mother of three children, who gave birth a month ago and could not even hug her child.

The Vice President of the Parliament, member of the Dignity and Truth Platform Party, Alexandru Slusari, quested public reactions from the Ministry of Health and the National Agency for Public Health (ANSP) to the more than irresponsible action of Dodon.

I demand that the head of state be fined by police immediately in accordance with the provisions of the Administrative Code for demonstrative violation of anti-epidemiological norms. Otherwise, the competent authorities will not have the moral right to demand the observance of the sanitary rules from the country’s population and they will bear the main responsibility for the spread of the pandemic in Moldova and for the deaths of the people,” Slusari noted.

The deputy of the Action and Solidarity Party Radu Marian accuses the participants in the event that they do not care about the epidemiological situation and about the people who suffered because of COVID-19.

The former Ministry of Health, Ala Nemerenco, calls artists lovers to order, alluding that, over time, they have been close to several politicians. This means: “Do not scatter your love of country. Do not campaign on it. Do not sell it. Do not put it under political companies”.

The deputy of the Dignity and Truth Platform Party Maria Ciobanu emphasizes that the restrictions are for others if the participants allowed themselves such an action during a pandemic.“I had the pleasure to meet with several local artists who, within the national campaign I love Moldova, supported my initiative to launch, on the occasion of 29 years of Independence of Moldova, a series of TV products, meant to promote our cultural values, the love for the nation and the country, the beauty of the native land,” Dodon wrote on Facebook, attaching several photos and a video.
