MOSCOW, October 8. /TASS/. Moldova’s charge d’affaires has been summoned to Russia’s Foreign Ministry as the republic’s authorities hamper the work of Russian journalists in the country, a diplomatic source said on Thursday.
"Amid the repeated cases when Moldova’s authorities create artificial obstacles for the work of Russian reporters in the country, Moldova’s charge d’affaires has been summoned to Russia’s Foreign Ministry," the ministry source said.
Moldova’s authorities have earlier banned entry to two reporters of the Rossiya 24 TV channel who were tasked with covering the October 9 football match of the Euro 2016 qualifying tournament.
Two film crews of the NTV TV channel were not allowed to cover mass protests staged by opposition in Moldova’s capital Chisinau this weekend.
