Newsline: Moldova summons Russian envoy over threats

Moldova’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the interim chargé d’affaires of the Russian Federation in Chisinau on September 1 to explain the statements of the head of Russian diplomacy, Sergei Lavrov, who previously stated that Moscow “will do everything to protect the interests of the Russian-speaking population of the Republic of Moldova”, Deschide.md reported, quoting a Telegram post from Russian Smotri Media. Russia’s Foreign Minister Lavrov warned that “any actions that will endanger the security of our soldiers [in Transdnistria] will be interpreted, in accordance with international law, as an attack on the Russian Federation.” (https://www.intellinews.com/moldova-summons-russian-diplomat-over-lavrov-threat-255317/) Moldova’s President Maia Sandu responded to Lavrov, saying it is Russia that has constantly launched provocations in Moldova.
