Moldova will support the sanctions against Russia, which the EU intends to extend. After all, the status of candidate to the European Union implies a demonstration of solidarity with European countries.
This was stated by the speaker of the Moldovan Parliament, Igor Grosu, quoted by Newsmaker.
According to him, Moldova intends to support the sanctions against Russia, which the EU discussed yesterday at the summit in Brussels.
"We will show solidarity with the EU. Both our status and our desire for Europe oblige us to continue to be in solidarity. The purpose of these sanctions is to stop the war, so that after that diplomats sit down at the negotiating table and find a solution," Grosu said.
At the same time, when asked by a journalist what will be Russia's reaction to this decision, he said that Moldova is interested in maintaining normal relations with Russia, but also asks to respect its decision to move towards EU accession.
