Russian Ambassador must explain why Ukrainian missiles fall on Moldova

Ukraine (, - Ambassador of the Russian Federation in Chisinau, Oleg Vasnetsov, will again be summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration (MFAEI) of Moldova for explanations, after a fallen Ukrainian rocket. This was stated by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova Natalia Gavrilitsa on TVR Moldova.

According to the head of government, due to the war in Ukraine, every day there is a risk of other objects hitting the settlements located on the Moldovan-Ukrainian border.

“We will conduct all investigations and are ready to cooperate with international institutions to document this case. We cannot face so many risks for millions of people every few days. The war must be stopped. I know that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will call the Russian ambassador to discuss these topics,” Gavrilitsa said.

At the beginning of the week, on December 5, four fragments of a rocket, presumably the Ukrainian S-300 anti-aircraft missile system, were found in the garden of Briceni, identical to the one that flew into Poland in November, killing two farmers. Later, the Moldovan border police found four more fragments, none of them contained explosive elements. On this fact, a criminal case was initiated, which will be handled by the Prosecutor's Office for Combating Organized Crime and Special Cases.

A similar incident occurred on October 31, when fragments of a rocket fell on the territory of the village of Naslavcha in the north of the republic. As a result of the incident, no one was injured; windows were broken in some houses. After this incident, the MFAEI announced the expulsion of the Russian diplomat. Then the head of the Foreign Ministry of the Republic of Moldova, Nicu Popescu, made a statement that "Chisinau strongly condemns the rocket attacks by Russian troops on the critical infrastructure of Ukraine and continues to support the Kiev regime." In response, he expelled a Moldovan diplomatic worker from the Russian Foreign Ministry.

As reported, Kyiv was waiting for a more serious statement from Moldova after the fall of the wreckage of its next rocket into the country.

“In general, the fall of a rocket is one of the signs of military aggression. Moldova has been subjected to military aggression by Russia for the second or third time, and I would like to hear some voice, or something, ”demanded Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the office of the President of Ukraine.
