CHISINAU, October 9. /TASS/. Three persons were detained after a brawl between Russian football fans and demonstrators in central Chisinau before the Russia Vs Moldova Euro 2016 Qualifiers on Friday, moldova.org reported.
According to the website, Russian fans were swearing insulting words when they were heading to the stadium, which fact provoked the brawl. Police detained three persons.
Mass rallies involving dozens of thousands continue in Moldova’s capital, Chisinau, since early September. These were launched by civic platform Dignity and Truth [DA], whose activists declared Moldova a "country seized by oligarchs" and labelling the ruling pro-European coalition a "junta".
Demands sought the resignations of top officials and heads of supervisory departments as well as insisting on an early parliamentary poll and direct presidential election.
The capital’s centre has turned into a tent camp shared by two opposition forces. They have similar demands but DA activists seek European Union integration, blaming the government for "compromising this slogan through theft".
Allies of the Party of Socialists and Our Party seek strengthening of Moldovan statehood and criticise Chisinau’s association agreement with the EU.
