Lavrov: West views Moldova as ‘next Ukraine’

The West is now considering Moldova for the role of ‘the next Ukraine’ – as stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in his talk with RIA Novosti and Rossiya 24 TV channel


Answering the question which of the countries around Russia can follow the path of Ukraine, Mr. Lavrov said, “Moldova is now being considered for this role."

Speaking in more detail, the Russian Foreign Minister explained that the West had used quite specific methods – far from being truly democratic – to bring Maia Sandu, who is eager to join NATO, to Moldova’s leadership. “She has Romanian citizenship, she is ready to unite with Romania, and she is in general ready for almost anything," Mr. Lavrov said.
