The new President of Moldova, Igor Dodon said that it strongly condemns the actions of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Moldova, which adopted the decision on awarding five Russian diplomats status figures non grata.
According to Dodon, it was done at the behest of the West, perhaps even from overseas. The President also stressed that policies which promote the expulsion of Russian diplomats, did not even know what is like to play and what a dear price they will have to pay in the future. The Moldovan President expressed concern that such actions of the Ministry of foreign Affairs threaten their own people.
Also he expressed the opinion that it was all planned action, in protest of the West against the strengthening of relations between Russia and Moldova.
