CHISINAU, June 15. /TASS/. Current tensions in Moldova's economy and society may erupt into mass protests and destabilization of the situation, the leader of the oppositionist Communist Party, former President Vladimir Voronin said on Thursday at a meeting with heads of diplomatic legations in Chisinau,
'Moldova is going through the most critical period of political, economic, social, and moral degradation since it gained independence," he said. "World experience shows the situation almost always grows over into mass social protests and popular unrest, which are most typically sporadic."
The Communists believe that the incumbent government is illegitimate and Moldova is an occupied nation, Voronin said.
He pointed out the level of corruption that he said was "high beyond any precedent" and had penetrated the highest state offices, bringing about an economic decline and skyrocketing impoverishment of the population.
"Dangers also come from Moldova's entrapment in the tangling interests of large international players," Voronin said.
He voiced his conviction that the authorities had signed an Association Agreement with the EU too hastily.
"In a situation where we're a multiethnic state, we're divided within ourselves, where the people is living from hand to mouth, the obnoxious and artificial pegging of the political choice creates prerequisites for a conflict," Voronin said.
He also pointed to a deplorable influence of the events in Ukraine, saying the informational space was filled with threats of all sorts and they were breeding insecurity and fear in Moldova proper and in its breakaway Transdniestria region.
