The participation of the President of Moldova, Maia Sandu in the “anti-Russian event” – the summit Crimean Platform will be taken into account in establishing bilateral relations between Moscow and Chișinău. The statement was made by the President of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of Russia, Valentina Matvienko, on Thursday, October 21, during a meeting with the President of the Parliament of Moldova, Igor Grosu, writes TASS.

“Although the President of Moldova, Maia Sandu, spoke about the mutually respectful and constructive nature of relations between Russia and Moldova, we cannot help but worry that the President of Moldova, despite her position, participated in the so-called Crimean Platform anti-Russian event. It is her right to do it, but, of course, we cannot ignore this in our dialogue and in building our relations in the future,” said the president of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of Russia during the meeting, which according to the quoted source, took place at the initiative of Moldova, on the sidelines of the European Conference of Presidents of Parliament in the member states of the Council of Europe.

The President of the Moldovan Parliament, Igor Grosu, participates in the European Conference of Presidents of Parliament from the member states of the Council of Europe, on October 21-22, in Athens.

“Crimea is Ukraine, and its illegal annexation is a violation of international law,” Moldovan President Maia Sandu said at the Crimea Platform summit.

Since March 2014, the EU has progressively imposed restrictive measures against Russia, taken in response to the “illegal annexation of Crimea and the deliberate destabilization of Ukraine.”
