All actions of the elected President of Moldova, Maia Sandu, are aimed at destroying relations with Russia. This was stated by Channel Five political scientist, orientalist Yevgeny Satanovsky on Friday, November 20.
He expressed the opinion that many countries are going this way, where they are led by politicians who have been “put” in power.
“Such a normal option [президента Украины Владимира] Zelensky. It would be strange if [она] stated something else. For this, in fact, they put it there. She has no prospects as such, and neither does the country she leads. It’s all to collapse [направлено]”- says the orientalist.
According to Stanovsky, in order to “build something,” other people are needed, and “these are being put in place to break up.”
“They are deliberately disposed to destroy any ties with Russia, it doesn’t matter at all – Moldova needs it, it doesn’t. It does not interest her at all, ”the political scientist concluded.
Apart from Zelensky, Stanovsky named Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan as another similar figure on the world stage. He believes that Moldova is likely to face a similar path, like these countries.
“Pashinyan came to power in Armenia – it’s clear how it ended for Armenia. In Ukraine, the same president, Zelensky. How it will end for Ukraine is also clear. Now there is such a president in Moldova. And everything will end the same there if she starts to be active, ”the expert said.
As for the withdrawal of troops from Transnistria, he stressed that the Supreme Commander-in-Chief is in charge of resolving this issue.
Earlier on Friday, in an interview with Ukrainian media, Sandu, who also heads the pro-European Action and Solidarity Party, advocated the withdrawal of Russian peacekeepers as part of a settlement in Transnistria. According to her, the settlement format has not yet been found.
The Transnistrian conflict – between Moldova and the unrecognized Transnistrian Moldavian Republic – began in Soviet times. It worsened after the withdrawal of Moldova from the USSR and grew into an armed confrontation in 1992.
On July 7, 1992, Moscow and Chisinau signed a plan for the peaceful resolution of the conflict. On July 21, an agreement on a peaceful settlement was concluded, with which the Transnistrian side agreed. On July 29, Russian peacekeeping forces entered Bendery and Dubossary in accordance with the agreement on the settlement of the conflict in the Transnistrian region of the Republic of Moldova, signed on July 21, 1992 by the Russian and Moldovan presidents.
They failed to reach an agreement on the status of Transnistria. Relations between the parties to the conflict remain tense. Moldova has repeatedly spoken out in favor of the withdrawal of Russian troops from the region.
In 2019, the head of the Russian Ministry of Defense Sergei Shoigu said that Russia had never questioned and is not going to question the end of peacekeeping in Transnistria.
