The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, denied the statement of the President of Moldova, Maia Sandu, that the Russian side has a plan to "destabilize the situation" in the republic, APA reports citing the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
“Such allegations are absolutely unfounded and unsubstantiated... We resolutely reject insinuations about Russia's alleged desire to “undermine” the situation in the Republic of Moldova.
Unlike Western countries and Ukraine, we do not interfere in the internal affairs of Moldova and other countries of the world,” the diplomat said.
According to Zakharova, such statements are built according to the classical scheme: first they make accusations with reference to intelligence that cannot be verified, and then use them to justify their own lawlessness.
“We call on the Moldovan authorities to finally show statesmanship, not to succumb to provocations from outside and be guided in their actions by the interests of the citizens of their own country,” Maria Zakharova.
