Medvedev slams Romania over R. of Moldova

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Friday denounced attempts to violate Republic of Moldova’s sovereignty, in an obvious reference to Romania, Mediafax reported quoting AFP. “We deem unacceptable these attempts to violate the Republic of Moldova’s identity and sovereignty and we support Moldovan leaders’ efforts to normalize the situation,” Medvedev said when receiving the accreditation letters of R. of Moldova’s new envoy to Russia. Chisinau was rocked by anti-communist protests after last month’s legislative elections. Outgoing President Vladimir Voronin blamed Romania for the unrest, a charge denied by Bucharest. Since then, ties between the two countries plummeted significantly. Russia has voiced support for R. of Moldova before and has recently asked the EU to convince Romania to stop interfering with Chisinau’s internal affairs.
