ROME, FEBRUARY 28 – Hundreds of demonstrators from the pro-Russian party Sor took to the streets in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, demanding the resignation of the government of President Maia Sandu and early elections. Part of the procession – write Moldovan media, including Newsmaker – tried to break into the seat of government: after being stopped by the police, the demonstrators headed towards the city hall. Some of them were arrested following the tensions. “We are calling for early elections. The government has to pay people’s bills that have increased several times through the fault of the authorities. We also ask that neutrality be observed, as it is written in the constitution, so that our country is not drawn into war operations,” said Vadim Fotescu, a Sor lawmaker. According to the government’s Action and Solidarity Party, the demonstrations are an attempt to “destabilize the situation in the country”.
