The head of the CSI Relation commission in the Russian Duma, Aleksey Ostrovsky, believes that Moldovan authorities must end the protests in Chisinau, while still respecting the legal means, Interfax informs.

The official claimed that the events in Chisinau are directly connected to the influence of foreign forces, including American ones, but mostly of Western specialized intelligence services. On his opinion, the Western states are unhappy with the neutrality status adopted by president Vladimir Voronin and intend to "cause changes, so that Moldova joins the Euro-Atlantic alliance".

"An important aid comes from Romania, which intends to swallow Moldova and create a new state in the region", said Ostrovsky.
