Moldova: ‘Russia Seeks Overthrow Government’

CHISINAU (Worthy News) – Moldova’s president says Russia is plotting to overthrow the country’s pro-European Union government after a Russian missile violated the country’s airspace.

Maia Sandu confirmed that she had learned about an alleged Russian plot to destabilize her country that Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, had revealed last week.
Sandu accused Moscow of seeking to destabilize Moldova through violent actions disguised as opposition protests.

Zelenskiy told EU leaders that Ukraine had intercepted a plan from Russian intelligence, showing “who, when, and how it was going to break the democracy of Moldova and establish control” over the country.

On Monday, days after the Moldovan government resigned, Sandu said local institutions had confirmed the plan, adding that it was not a new one.

The scheme allegedly involved citizens of Russia, Montenegro, Belarus, and Serbia entering Moldova to try to spark protests. That would be an attempt to “change the legitimate government to an illegal government controlled by the Russian Federation,” she said.

However, she Warner that “The Kremlin’s attempts to bring violence to Moldova will not work. Our main goal is the security of citizens and the state. Our goal is peace and public order in the country.”

But it comes at a difficult moment for Europe’s poorest nation. Moldova has faced large numbers of Ukrainian refugees, soaring inflation, power cuts, and instability in the breakaway region of Transnistria, controlled by Russian separatists.


It has suffered from energy shortages after Russian attacks on Ukrainian energy facilities and struggled to end its reliance on Russian natural gas.

Last week a Russian missile intended for Ukraine violated its airspace promoting Moldova to summon the Russian ambassador.

With war raging in neighboring Ukraine, Moldova still seeks to remain under the economic and military security umbrella of the EU and NATO military alliance.

Days before her resignation, Moldova’s former prime minister Natalia Gavrilița went to Brussels for talks with senior officials of NATO and the EU’s executive European Commission.

Moldova, a nation of some 3.3 million people, was last month offered 145 million euros ($155.2 million) in funding from the EU to keep its economy going.

Yet that funding, a mix of grants and cheap loans, must still be approved by EU member states and European legislators.
