Moldova does not see the risk of military scenarios on the country’s border in the near future, but there are risks of a hybrid sabotage, a coup d’état, said Moldovan Foreign Minister Nicu Popescu.
“We do not see the risk of military scenarios on the Moldovan border in the near future … But hybrid subversive activities, an attempted coup, yes, there are risks,” Popescu said.
Earlier, Moldovan President Maia Sanduza stated that attempts were being made in the country to change the constitutional order, and called on the country’s parliament to tighten security legislation. Prior to this, Volodymyr Zelensky claimed that Ukrainian intelligence had intercepted the alleged “RF plan” to “destroy the democratic order” in Moldova and warned Chisinau about this.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Moscow is determined to have friendly relations with Moldova and does not enjoy the fact that this country is being used for anti-Russian purposes. He connected the growing accusations against the Russian Federation with the desire of the Moldovan leadership to ward off accusations of failures in the socio-economic policy.
