MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. Chairman of the State Duma lower house Committee for CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Ties with Compatriots Leonid Slutsky has said he hopes for peaceful resolution of the political crisis in Moldova.
"Moldova’s politicians should have enough political will to resolve another crisis in Chisinau competently and without bloodshed," he told TASS on Thursday.
Slutsky added that Russian lawmakers were closely following developments in Moldova and maintained contacts with their counterparts in this country. "It is necessary to resolve all differences regarding what is going on in the country now in a peaceful manner. We are closely monitoring the situation in Moldova and maintain contacts with our colleagues in the parliament," he said.
On the other hand, Slutsky did not rule out that the situation that has evolved could eventually result in the early parliamentary elections in Moldova.
On Wednesday, riots occurred outside the parliament in Moldova where the new government was endorsed. Thousands of opposition supporters stormed the building saying the cabinet was illegal. Later, thousands of supporters of the opposition Party of Socialists, Our Party and the Dignity and Truth (DA) civic platform staged a picket of the building.
