Relations between Moldova and Russia are predicted in case of victory of oppositionist

In case of victory in the presidential elections in Moldova, the candidate from the opposition Action and Solidarity Party, Maia Sandu, will pursue a more anti-Russian policy. Bogdan Bezpalko, a member of the Council for Interethnic Relations under the President of Russia, shared this forecast in an interview with RIA Novosti.

However, according to the expert, the transition will not be as abrupt as in Ukraine, but consistent. “This will apply to humanitarian policy, language policy, and Transnistria and peace settlement projects, which until the last moment were based on the memorandum of [special representative of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry] Kozak and the” 5 + 2 “mechanism, and on the issue of the stay of Russian peacekeepers at the territory of Transnistria, “Bezpalko explained.

He added that Sandu will also put pressure on Russia on the issues of Transnistria to include this region in Moldova.

In addition, in the economic sphere, changes, as the specialist notes, will affect the supply of hydrocarbons, some goods and the length of stay of workers from Moldova in Russia. Despite this, such a policy in relations with Moscow will be honest, Bezpalko is sure.

“These [pro-Russian] politicians did not come to any real results or breakthroughs in Russian-Moldovan relations for various reasons. Their pro-Russian position was to receive benefits and preferences from Russia in economic aspects,” he stressed. p>
