The President of Moldova Maia Sandu commented on the death of the founder of PMC Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin. According to the head of state, this only confirms the risks coming from Russia - a country with no justice. Maia Sandu said this in an exclusive interview with CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour, who was in Chisinau.
In connection with Prigozhin’s death, Maia Sandu also noted that “unfortunately, this is not limited to Russia’s borders. Unfortunately, this is also how Russia behaves with regard to its neighbours”.
When asked about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Maia Sandu said that “Ukraine should receive more support and everyone should realize that if Ukraine is not helped, Russia will not stop either in Ukraine or in Moldova”.
Maia Sandu also spoke about the Transnistrian region, where Russian troops are illegally stationed. According to her, this is how the Russian authorities are trying to influence the situation in Moldova.
Speaking about Moldova's application to join the European Union, President Maia Sandu said that “it is a long process” and admitted that in Moldova “there are still corrupt judges and corrupt prosecutors who do not want the success of reforms”.
