The newly-elected President of Moldova Igor Dodon confirmed yet again his position concerning the annexed Crimea. In his interview for Russian media he announced that Crimea is Russia’s de-facto and de jure it’s unrecognized.
“I already answered this questions and I don’t take my words back. De-facto Crimea is Russia’s. And de-jure it’s unrecognized,” Dodon said.
Moldova will not make any decisions regarding peninsula’s status because of its own problems with unrecognized Transnistria (Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic), he added.
“We have our Transnistrian problem and we should not make any decisions about it right now,” the President-elect noted.
It was reported earlier that pro-Russian candidate for presidency Igor Dodon is now Moldova's President-elect. Dodon wants urgent parliamentary election to be conducted soon.
