The relations between Russia and Moldova are now “very, very tense” because of the “anti-Russian” position of the Moldovan authorities, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.
He also advised Chisinau to be careful about the issue of Russian peacekeepers in Transdniestria, kommersant.ru reported.
Peskov said the Moldovan authorities are “emphasizing, probably, everything anti-Russian” and are “slipping into anti-Russian hysteria”. “This lack of constructivism can hardly do anything to help Moldova itself, and, of course, this harms our bilateral relations,” the Kremlin spokesman is confident.
According to him, Russia “has been and is a very responsible party in the Transdniestrian affairs” and continues to fulfill its function. “We would like to recommend our Moldovan interlocutors to be very and very careful with such statements,” Dmitry Peskov added.
We recall that earlier, Prime Minister Dorin Recean said that Transdniestria should be demilitarized, the Russian troops should leave, after which it would be necessary to integrate the inhabitants of the region economically and socially.
