PSD chief: ‘I went twice to Moscow’

The Social Democrat leader Mircea Geoana disclosed that he went not only once to Moscow, but twice, this year, in a short time frame. The first voyage was on April 27, and the second in June, after the PSD president left the Supreme Defence Council (CSAT), “Romania libera” reads. He said that he went to Moscow “on a private visit,” stating that this time he did not have meetings with public persons. Geoana also said that his first visit was not secret, considering that he was accompanied by SPP officers, and before going to Moscow he had a discussion on this issue with the foreign minister of that time, Cristian Diaconescu.


Moreover, Mircea Geoana stated that he went to Moscow for “the normalization of Russia-Romania dialogue” in the conditions of a “frozen relation” of which Traian Basescu is guilty. “We have a practically frozen relation with the Russian Federation and the normalization of the dialogue was my main goal. Medvedev’s Russia isn’t any longer Stalin’s USSR,” Geoana stressed. He also said that the result of these contacts is the fact that a few days ago he received an official invitation to pay an official visit to Moscow. In exchange, the Liberal Stejarel Olaru accuses Geoana of possible “high treason,” in the conditions in which the PSD candidate established the meetings with the Russian officials through some security officers from the Russian Federation. “The PSD president endangered the strategic partnerships with US and NATO. And this because of the secret character of Geoana’s delegation. We don’t know why he went to Moscow. We can only make speculations connected with a possible electoral financial aid,” Olaru said, according to the daily.
