Moldova Parliament Speaker accuses Russia of election meddling
The Speaker of the Moldovan parliament, vice-chairman of the Democratic Party, Adrian Candu, accused Russia of attempting to intervene in the country's electoral process.
He told reporters that the Russian authorities had used a number of tools to influence the election campaign, TASS wrote.
"This is about amnesty for migrants, removal of customs duties on Moldovan products, and the situation with the pilots rescued from Afghanistan," Candu told journalists, speaking at one of the polling stations on Sunday.
As reported, Moldovan citizens today are choosing a new parliament, as well as voting in a consultative referendum to reduce the number of deputies and allow having their mandates withdraw in a people's vote.
