The President of the Republic of Moldova, Vladimir Voronin, has accused once again the opposition of attempting a civil war and said in an interview with Ria Novosti that authorities intentionally let demonstrators to ransack the Parliament headquarters, so that everybody see what they can do when holding the power of the state. In the interview, he offers his version on events in Chisinau.

He said that the Moldovan people "for the first time saw the opposition openly betray its own people and its own country" by attempting a civil war. "The whole country saw that there is no opposition whatsoever in Moldova - neither anti-Communist, nor anti-Voronin. There is only opposition to the state", Voronin said, quoted by Ria Novosti.
