Moldovan President Maia Sandu has said that Russia wants to use her country against Ukraine in the same way as the Kremlin uses Belarus.
This is reported by Newsmaker.
Sandu said that Russia is trying to undermine and overthrow the government in Chisinau, and the Moldovan authorities have evidence of such actions.
"It is clear that Russia is trying to install a pro-Russian government in Chisinau to use Moldova against Ukraine, as is the case, for example, with Belarus," the president said.
She recalled Russian President Vladimir Putin's recent statement about his intention to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.
"This is exactly what Russia wants to do in the case of Moldova. However, today Moldova has an independent government, elected by its citizens, which works for the benefit of its citizens and Moldova, so it cannot be used in the way the pro-Russian leadership would use it," Sandu said.-
