“The United States and the European Union are interfering unprecedentedly in Moldova’s internal affairs, explicitly forbidding President Maia Sandu to have good relations with Russia.” The statement was made on Wednesday, October 13, by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, at the opening of the meeting of the heads of security and intelligence services within the Commonwealth of Independent States, Tass.ru reports.

“We plead for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Moldova, a country historically close to us. We respect the results of the July parliamentary elections. However, a deep concern raises the unprecedented nature of the interference of Washington and Brussels in the internal political processes in the republic, going so far as to explicitly forbid the president of this country to talk about the desire to have good relations with the Russian Federation,” said Lavrov.

In this context, Lavrov added that he hopes that “Chișinău will be able to act independently, without outside interference.”

Asked by Ziarul de Gardă, the officials from the Presidency informed us that they do not comment on the statements made by the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs.

In August, President Maia Sandu had a meeting with Dmitry Kozak, the special representative of Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which she discussed the issue of exports of Moldovan agricultural products to the Russian market, the contract for the supply of natural gas to Moldova, including on the subject of settling the Transnistrian conflict.
