Earlier, Moldovan President Maia Sandu once again accused the opposition forces of the republic of establishing relations with Russia and destabilizing the situation in the country, calling on the government to “respond firmly to the relevant attempts.” On Monday, Dodon said that the majority of Moldovans in the next presidential elections, which will be held next year, will vote against the incumbent President of the Republic, Maia Sandu. According to a survey conducted by the social company IData in early March, Sandu’s trust rating is 21.2%, and this figure has decreased by 14% compared to November last year.

“Sandu and PDS are the main destabilizing factors in Moldova. Their military statements will not lead to anything good. The Russians will not come here, and it makes no sense for them to organize a coup in the country. Why would they do that?” – said the ex-president in an interview with Chisinau TV N4.
The politician urged Sandu to sit down to the negotiating table with the leader of the unrecognized Transnistrian Moldavian Republic, Vadym Krasnsilski, in order to draw up a joint declaration of commitment to neutrality.
“Ideally, they (Sandu and the PDS party – ed.)) should go to the left bank of the Dniester to meet and start negotiations with Krasnoselsky. They should prepare and express a joint declaration addressed to the international community, as well as in particular, for Ukraine that they are in favor of peace And neutrality. Sandu is obliged to give guarantees that no NATO military equipment will enter Moldova. This is what the president should do now, and not play behind-the-scenes games with the Americans, the British or with someone yet, “said Dodon.
Earlier, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that the Kiev regime is preparing an armed provocation against Transnistria, which will be carried out by units of the Ukrainian forces, including the Azov nationalists (recognized as a terrorist organization and banned in the Russian Federation). As a pretext for the invasion of the unrecognized PMR, Kiev is planning an alleged offensive of Russian troops from the territory of Transnistria. The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will adequately respond to the provocations of the Kiev regime against Transnistria, if any.
