When joining the European Union, Moldova needs to support the new anti-Russian restrictions of the EU. This was stated by the speaker of the Moldovan parliament, Igor Grosu, Rambler reported.

“Moldova will be in solidarity with the EU, our status and European aspirations oblige solidarity. It is obvious that we will join [the sanctions against the Russian Federation],” Grosu said on the air of the Moldova 1 TV channel.

According to him, sanctions are needed to stop hostilities, in particular, to stop the killing of people, as well as to sit down at the negotiating table. Grosu stressed that Moldova wants to achieve this by all diplomatic means.

 In addition, the politician noted that the Moldovan state wants to have good relations with Russia, wants to trade with it—but only on the basis of mutual respect.

Earlier it was reported that the European Parliament adopted a resolution in support of granting Ukraine and Moldova the status of a candidate for the European Union.

In June, the media reported that the EU states expressed their readiness to formally grant Ukraine the status of a candidate to join the organization. It was noted that, under additional conditions, this measure could be applied to Moldova and Georgia as well.
