Moldovan President Igor Dodon did not approve the law limiting the broadcasting of Russian TV channels and returned it to the parliament. He wrote about this on his Facebook page.
"I returned to the parliament the so-called "Law on Combating Russian Propaganda." I reiterate the anti-democratic character of this law, aimed at limiting freedom of speech and pluralism of opinions," Dodon wrote.
The Moldovan leader stressed that about 70% of the country's population "consider the Russian Federation a friendly state." Limiting broadcasting would be a serious violation of "constitutional rights of the majority of the Moldovan population".

This confirms that our pro-European authorities still promote the geopolicy of illusion’, the statement said.
He also expressed the confidence that Kishinev with anti-Russian policy tries to create favorable ideological background inside the country while the absence of the perspectives of the entry.
