Recent statements by Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev about attempts by Romanian politicians to “absorb” Moldova— part of the “false rhetoric of the Kremlin”, to which Bucharest is already accustomed, the Romanian Foreign Ministry said.
On the eve of Medvedev, in his Telegram channel, he reacted to Moldova receiving the status of a candidate member of the European Union. He, in particular, expressed the opinion that Chisinau would have to wait decades for accession to the EU and “much more relevant” way to get membership— “creation of a new Greater Romania”. Romanian politicians, in his words, “have been leading political round dances around Moldova for a long time.” and “openly stepping up multi-format legal efforts” absorption of the country.
“This reaction <…> says one thing for sure: the decision of the European Council to grant Moldova the status of a candidate— correct»,— says the message of the Romanian Foreign Ministry (quote from the Romanian Television Society).
Moldova became a candidate for EU membership together with Ukraine. This decision was announced in the European Council on June 23.
The Kremlin representative Dmitry Peskov called the event “internal European affairs”. He, however, noted that Moldova “wants to become Europeans more than the Europeans themselves” and that candidate status is “associated with anti-Russianness.” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova considered that the decision of Brussels was made out of the interests of the political situation, and not because of the two countries' compliance with the criteria in the field of the rule of law, the fight against corruption and economic development. She announced “active geopolitical development of the CIS space”; The European Union in order to contain Russia.
