CHISINAU, September 1. /TASS/. Moldovan agrarians, affected by the loss of the Russian market after Chisinau struck a trade agreement with the European Union, will join mass antigovernment protests due September 6, the leaders of organizations representing their interests said Tuesday.
"We called on the agrarians to go out to protests on September 6 to show we no longer want to put up with the state’s policy regarding the industry," Uniagroprotect chairman Alexander Slusar said. He said nearly half of the country’s agrarians will go bankrupt by the end of the year "to keep company to Moldovan Gastarbeiters who leave for Italy, Russia."
"Mass bankruptcies are to be expected. All is getting more expensive by 30-40%, most agricultural crops will yield on the average 60% less than last year due to the drought. In the current conditions, I think half of agrarians will go bankrupt," Slusar said.
He criticized the government for failing to pay promised compensations for the loss of the Russian market in such a complicated situation.
This year, agrarians have already held several protest rallies, during which they used agricultural machinery to block all international highways in the country.
