Foreign Ministry of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin stated that the situation in Moldova is a possible threat for the south of Ukraine, as he reported on Facebook.
“We all really need European democratic Moldova and the prospect of the new Russian springboard, which will create threat for the Ukrainian south does not seem to be appropriate,” Klimkin said.
Foreign Minister emphasized that the department follows closely the situation and will send its representative there tomorrow.
“Tomorrow, Viktor Kryzhanovsky will come in Chisinau; he is responsible for the coordination of the efforts on Transdniester settlement, he knows the Moldovan context well. Today, the possibility and risks of “good services” from the side of the external players increase,” he emphasized.
As we reported, the Security Service of Ukraine enhanced the counter-intelligence regime at the entrance to Moldova through the territory of Ukraine because of radical citizens of Russia.
Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry revealed an appeal which raises a concern about the possible implementation of the Russian scenario of Moldova’s federalization.
The parliamentary elections and a consultative referendum on reducing the number of MPs from 101 to 61 were held in Moldova on February 24.
The leaders of the race are socialists led by President Igor Dodon, supporters of rapprochement with Russia, and the Democratic Party, which now controls the parliament, representing pro-European forces. It is headed by Vladimir Plahotniuc, the richest man in Moldova, accused of having solely controlled all the authorities. The Democratic Party supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
