Moldovan leader Ihor Dodon doesn’t rule out that the EU-Molvoda Association agreement will be cancelled – in the light of the forthcoming parliamentary election. The politician said this after his negotiations with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

‘This is our pragmatic approach, and we understand that this association agreement with the EU… I guess there are no advantages for us in it. We lost the Russian market and, strangely, the export volumes to EU countries also dropped’, he said.

‘I do not rule out that after the parliamentary election, the Socialist Party will be able to shape the majority in the parliament, and I am going to support their position; I hope the majority will cancel this agreement,’ Dodon said.  

Ihor Dodon was officially announced the winner of presidential election in Moldova in October 2016. He claimed a bit more than 55 percent of voters. Dodon, the third nation-wide elect head of the Republic of Moldova, has repeatedly confirmed his reputation of pro-Russian figure; in particular, he considered annexation of Crimea by Russia a legal act, saying that ‘Crimea belongs to Russia’.
