CHISINAU, August 2. /TASS/. The Moldovan government has declared Russian Deputy Prime-Minister Dmitry Rogozin persona non-grata. The decision was approved at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday following a proposal by Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign Affairs and European Integration Minister Andrei Galbur.
He said the government took the step due to a series of statements unfriendly to Moldova and its citizens. In particular, Galbur mentioned Rogozin’s recent interview to the Rossiya-24 television channel. Rogozin will be prohibited from visiting and transiting Moldova.
Rogozin is a co-chairman of the Russian-Moldovan inter-governmental commission for economic cooperation and Russia’s special representative for the Dniester region.
