CHISINAU, September 8. /TASS/. The organizers of the protests in the Moldovan capital Chisinau will ask the European Union to stop financing the country and exert pressure on its authorities. One of the leaders of the Dignity and Truth (DA) civic platform Andrei Nastase said that the issue would be discussed during the meeting with representatives of the European Union in Chisinau later on Tuesday.
"The authorities ignore our demands. We have informed our European partners about our stance and will ask them to exert pressure on the country’s leadership. All the money they send here ends up in the pockets of these criminals," Nastase said.
He noted that demonstrators had requested assistance in all diplomatic missions in Chisinau without exception. "We will seek the organization of the early parliamentary elections, which must be held not by Moldova’s Central Election Commission but under the EU auspices," the protesters’ representative said. He confirmed that demonstrators would pursue their goals by peaceful means.
Tens of thousands of people gathered on the main square on Sunday. A tent camp has been put up there now. Protesters demand the resignation of the president and the government formed by the ruling coalition Alliance for European Integration, as well as holding early parliamentary elections.
