Newsline: Moldova summons Russia ambassador over blackout

Russian Ambassador Oleg Vasnetsov was summoned by the Moldovan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, following the outage that occurred amidst Russian attacks on the Ukrainian power grid. “Russia’s attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure have left Moldova in the dark, again. Massive blackouts across the country, including Chisinau and the @MoldovaMFA [Foreign Ministry] building. I instructed that Russia’s ambassador be summoned for explanations,” Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister Nicu Popescu noted in a Twitter post.

Two mobile phone networks were also reported as unavailable.
