Ukraine (bbabo.net), - The Moldovan authorities, by accusing Russia of an alleged attempt to carry out a coup d'état in the republic, want to divert responsibility for the failure of the socio-economic policy. This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov, speaking today, February 15, at a meeting of the State Duma.
He stressed that the West and Kyiv are behind the anti-Russian rhetoric of Chisinau. The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry noted that in this way they seek to undermine the friendly relations between Moldova and Russia.
“With the growth of this rhetoric, which Kiev is now trying to warm up as much as possible by passing on some confidential information about the provocations we are planning, coup d'état, of course, the Sandu government, in which, along with it, almost all are also Romanian citizens, wants to ward off accusations for the failure of social economic policy, which is causing increasing indignation in society,” Lavrov said.
He also added that "there is a maniacal desire of Kiev and the European Union to undermine Russian positions in the mechanism of negotiations on the Transnistrian settlement" 5 + 2 ", to weaken the ties of the Russian Federation with Gagauzia, to demand the withdrawal of Russian peacekeepers from Transnistria."
Lavrov once again confirmed that Russia wants to have friendly relations with "multinational Moldova", and expressed the hope that "the aspirations of the leadership of the republic to reunite with Romania and ask NATO to ensure security in the Republic of Moldova do not reflect the interests of the people."
“We want to have good relations with friendly Moldova, multinational Moldova, but this, of course, is a two-way street,” Sergey Lavrov concluded.
As bbabo.net reported, on February 13, Moldovan President Maia Sandu announced that Russia was preparing a violent coup d'etat in the republic with the help of "saboteurs with military training, disguised in civilian clothes." According to her, Chisinau was warned about this by the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky, whose intelligence intercepted some documents.
