Lavrov said on Thursday that Moldova, an Eastern European country and former Soviet republic, is putting itself in harm's way in its desire to join the European Union.
In June 2022, the EU and its member states offered unwavering support for Moldova and granted it candidate status. The support was reaffirmed in March of this year, with the EU and its members promising to continue to provide security and economic support to Moldova as it awaits its path to accession...
On Thursday, the Moldova Foreign Ministry issued a rebuke to Lavrov's comments, calling Russia's invasion of Ukraine "brutal" and saying that Moldova "has felt the entire arsenal of destabilization attempts that Russia has unleashed against us."
"Russia's statements, whether today or on previous occasions, are part of the series of hostile actions that the Russian Federation has been trying to implement towards our country over the past 30 years," the statement reads. "Fortunately, throughout this time, the partner states in the West have been by our side, helping us to successfully overcome these threats...
"The Republic of Moldova is going, irreversibly, on the European path and today, more than ever, we insist on the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of Russian troops from our territory."
On November 24, Russian officials chastised Moldova and threatened to retaliate after its parliament voted to join the EU sanctions against Russia in connection with the war in Ukraine. Moldova's move is part of moves to change legislation so it can make a bid to join the EU.
Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to Ukraine's Ministry of Internal Affairs, wrote on X (formerly Twitter) that Lavrov's comments "confirm that Russia has no intentions to stop at Ukraine unless it is stopped."..

Russia obviously wants to attack & conquer, but without fighting NATO ... and, there's only 2 countries left in Eastern Europe not in NATO - Ukraine and Moldova
given Russia's recent behavior, Moldova is right to be concerned
Newsweak = Stalinazi Globalist spam
Are you Canadians still hiding under your beds in fear of The Putin?
pooty thinks everyone’s attention is on the ME
There are 1,000 Russian soldiers in Moldova right now among other things supervising old munitions from the Cold War stored there.
Is that what Ukraine and NATO are interested in seizing perhaps?
Hi Red China troll !
"It's high time the Slavic race was in charge of Europe.".
Never forget that modern-day Muskovite political culture is in part derived from the Mongol hordes who over-ran the region in the 13th century.
Putin Me On.
How’s Yaroslav Hunka doing up there in the “Great White North”?
Canada’s most famous Nazi retired from doing his dirty deeds for the Third Reich in Ukraine.
“There are 1,000 Russian soldiers in Moldova right now among other things supervising old munitions from the Cold War stored there.”
Given the way the Russians are known to “store” old weapons I don’t blame Moldavia for wanting them out last week. What’s shocking is that there are any Russian weapons that haven’t already been stolen by the people who were supposed to be guarding them.
“Are you Canadians still hiding under your beds in fear of The Putin?”
It almost seems that these Pipskeak Countries actually WANT to be liberated by Russia. Why else force that outcome?
Our idiotic establishment’s insane desire to expand NATO right up to Russia’s border is going to start WW III. And all of it is because of greed for feasting off military contracts.
Every Zeeper is a despicable, bloody-minded, scumbag
The squinty eyed mongolioids ass kissers on FR will still be cheering the Russians on when they are looking across at Britain from France and trying to invade Israel
I thought Pooty died again last week...
What if it is the desire of Moldovans to be part of the EU.You gonna stop them?
I’d like to see Putin be given a shot at managing NYC, LA and Detroit. I think he’d brush aside this liberal world order and stand up functioning governments rather quickly.
Well, there is the video with Lavrov speaking. But, since I don’t speak Russian all that well I followed the translation. I don’t think it was a Newsweek translator.
These Russian soldiers are in the Transnistria Region which has an ethnic Russian population in the hundreds of thousands.
They have been in conflict with the rest of Moldova in the post-Cold War era.
I don’t need to do anything Short John All Lead. The Russians will be doing it. I will just be eating popcorn with a woodie.
Hopefully more of these murdering Russian pigs will be slaughtered.
