Moldovan Parliament will support EU sanctions on Russia

June 24. (EUROPA PRESS) –

The president of the Parliament of Moldova, Igor Grosu, has reported that the chamber will support the sanctions that the European Union will impose on Russia in response to its invasion of Ukraine, after receiving the status of a candidate for the European bloc on Thursday.

As Grosu acknowledged in an interview for the Moldova 1 television network, having received the status of a candidate for the European Union also implies this type of show of solidarity with the decisions of Brussels.

“We will show solidarity with the European Union. Both the status and our aspiration to Europe oblige us to remain in solidarity. The purpose of these sanctions is to stop the war, so that diplomats can then sit down at the negotiating table and find a solution” , has explained.

However, despite supporting the EU measures, Grosu has acknowledged that Moldova intends to maintain a “good relationship” with Russia, a country that “has power” and in which “several hundred thousand people” reside and work. Moldovans”.

Thus, the president of the Moldovan Parliament has pointed out the country’s aspirations to be able to trade with the Eurasian country, which he has asked to “respect” Chisinau’s decision to join the group of Twenty-seven.


On the other hand, Grosu has stressed that the Russian population in Moldovan territory is perfectly integrated into society, so he has refused to generate any type of controversy on this matter. “We are a small country, but we want to be respected,” he has said.

“(The Russians in Moldova) They are not intimidated, they are very well integrated into society. Therefore, there is no need to invent problems where there are none,” concluded the president of the Chamber.

European Union leaders agreed on Thursday to grant Ukraine and Moldova candidate status to join the European bloc, following the European Commission’s ruling that last week endorsed taking this step, assuming both countries will undertake far-reaching reforms.
