Friday, 24 June 2022

Moldovan authorities have banned Russian news to fight disinformation.

Moldovan President Maia Sandu responded to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who accused the Moldovan authorities of "banning everything Russian," reports NewsMaker.

"This bill is a sovereign decision of our country's parliament and office of the president. We needed the bill to fight disinformation. We are fighting it and will continue to do so to provide an objective information space. So that citizens can analyze the facts based on "objective information, not propaganda and unreliable sources," the president said.

Lavrov had previously complained that the Moldovan authorities tried to "ban everything Russian," following Ukraine's example.

A few days ago, Lavrov said "they" were allegedly trying to turn Moldova into a "second Ukraine." He said the majority of Moldova's population was against the country's EU accession and added the country was "playing a roleф."

In response, the EU Ambassador to Moldova claims the European Union seeks to support Moldova in its efforts to become even better.
