Moscow hopes that Chisinau will be wise enough not to declare a vendetta against all supporters of cooperation with Russia and not to wipe out the political field of those who advocate the development of friendly relations with Moscow.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said this, ria.ru reports.
She stated at the briefing: “I would like to believe and hope that under the slogans of the fight against corruption in Moldova, no one will wipe out the political field of the forces and associations advocating the development of friendly and mutually beneficial relations with Russia.
Zakharova stressed that no one in the country can hinder the development of Moldovan-Russian relations, and the fact that a “vendetta” has been declared against people engaged in the development of bilateral cooperation with Russia speaks of the influence of external factors.
“We would like to hope that the Moldovan leadership will have the wisdom not to follow the indicated path and ensure justice, respect for all legal rights and freedoms of the former president, as well as international human rights obligations in the Republic of Moldova,” Zakharova added.
