Russian Foreign Ministry Accuses the EU and the US of Interfering in Moldova’s Internal Affairs
The Russian Foreign Ministry accuses the European Union and the United States of America of interfering in Moldova’s internal affairs, noting that this “contributes to an even greater polarization of Moldovan society.” The statements were made on Monday, April 26, by a spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zaharova.
Zaharova claims that last week, “Western officials continued their attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of the republic,” referring to Western official statements criticizing decisions of the Socialist-Shor parties regarding the Constitutional Court.
“European Council President Charles Michel and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell have expressed “concern” over these decisions immediately after their adoption, seeing them as “an attack on the independence of the Constitutional Court”. The head of the EU delegation to Moldova Peter Michalko, the US ambassador Dereck Hogan, as well as the embassies of a number of EU member states, including Romania and the Netherlands, did not stay away,” it is shown in an informative note of the ministry.
In this context, Maria Zaharova recommends the EU and the USA to refrain from “interfering in the internal affairs of Moldova and not to exceed the norms of diplomatic ethics.”
“While asking the Parliament of Moldova to respect the decisions of the Constitutional Court, the representatives of the USA and the EU seem to refuse to show the same respect for the actions of the Moldovan legislators. Such selectivity in evaluations confirmed once again that the geopolitical vector in Chișinău is more important for them than the “democratic values” for which they fight,” it is also shown in the informative note.
