MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. The Kremlin is carefully monitoring the events in Moldova and calls on all the sides to observe the law and refrain from violence, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday commenting on the protests in Chisinau.
"The Kremlin calls on all the sides to abide by the law and calm, of course, and hopes that all the forces that support these or those opponents, will refrain from any violent actions," Peskov told reporters.
Russia’s authorities "are monitoring all the events in Moldova very carefully," he added.
