“We have come to the puppeteers of our government, who are financing the leadership dictating the tactics and strategy of our country’s development. Washington is blindly pushing Moldova into the EU, which endangers traditional ties of the republic in the east,” one of the party leaders, Vlad Batrincea, said.
He said more than 70% of Moldovans didn’t support the signing of an association agreement with the European Union, scheduled for June 27. “We demand to put off the signing of the agreement until a consultative referendum is held,” the politician said.
Referendums were held in the breakaway Transdniestria and Gagauzia, where 90% spoke in favor of closer ties with Russia and entry into the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
The authorities of the second biggest Moldovan city of Beltsy are also getting ready for a consultative plebiscite on the foreign policy course of the country.
