Lawmaker of the Moldavian Parliament Oazu Nantoi claimed that the political crisis in the state poses no short-time particular threats for Ukraine as 112 Ukraine reported.
“If we look at the statement of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine, we can see that Ukraine will not tolerate federalization of Moldova on the Russian scenario, as Russia can use it as the precedent for Ukraine. As for today, this issue was not even discussed during the talk with Mr. Kozakov (Dmitry Kozakov, - the Russian Vice Prime Minister and Special Representative of the Russian president on Trade and Economic Development with Moldova, - 112.international). More precisely, we identified our position that we stand against federalization; we stand for the withdrawal of the Russian troops,” Nantoi said.
According to him, the only issue, which is on the agenda is the “dismantling of the regime of leader of pro-European party Democratic Party of Moldova Vladimir Plahotniuc”.
“So, Ukraine as the sovereign state may assume all security measures, which it finds to be considerable. But, in my opinion, the events in Moldova do pose any short-time particular threats. The issue remains open, what will happen with the web of relationships, mostly non-transparent, which Mr. Plahotniuc has with particular circles in Ukraine. Because this night, in Chisinau, a private plane landed and later it aimed to Kyiv as the journalists say,” Nantoi said.
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.
Earlier, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry revealed an appeal which raises a concern about the possible implementation of the Russian scenario of Moldova’s federalization.
On June 9, the parliament of Moldova appointed a government and the Prime Minister.
As we reported earlier, four political parties get into the parliament after parliamentary elections in Moldova.
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, who are in favor 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, who is accused by opponents of having solely controlled all the authorities. The Democratic Party supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
