Adviser to President of Ukraine, Mykhailo Podolyak, has construed information about alleged surveillance of Ukrainian diplomats in Chisinau as a “discrediting campaign”.
In an interview with TVR Moldova, Podolyak said he was convinced that this scandal was organized by the Kremlin using the tools it wields in Chisinau.
“These reports should be interpreted as a primitive and already traditional attempt by Russian special services to launch a discrediting media campaign whose mission is to clash the two countries in order to provoke some malicious reactions and statements.
There are now many channels of communication between our governments at many levels. This information isn’t worth a jigger. This is just a banal and primitive challenge in Russia’s style, nothing more. It is a standard attempt to launch a media campaign, which would cause a wave of negative statements,” stressed Mykhailo Podolyak.
Moreover, Podolyak said that the relations between Chisinau and Kyiv are at a very high level and such attempts cannot destroy the trust between the two states.
Earlier, the Ukrainian ambassador to Chisinau, Marko Shevchenko, denied the statements by journalist Natalia Morari, who claimed that she had received information from the Ukrainian intelligence services that diplomats of this country were being monitored by the Moldovan services.
