Expert: Sandu’s Victory in Moldova will be a challenge for Russia and Transnistria

16.11.2020, Moscow.

Sandu’s victory in Moldova and the subsequent consolidation of the result during the parliamentary elections is a threat for Transnistria and Russia, deputy director of the RUDN Institute for Strategic Studies and Forecasts, member of the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation Nikita Danyuk said on November 15 to Rossa Primavera News Agency.

“Sandu’s victory and the consolidation of this victory during the parliamentary elections will indeed be a great challenge for the Transnistrian Moldavian Republic and Russia. I am sure that in this case, Moldova will reach certain agreements with Europe, Ukraine, and the USA, which, in turn, will give it carte blanche for provocations against the people of Transnistria”, Danyuk noted.

Danyuk emphasized that “Sandu is a frank Western creature, who says that we should rush to the EU and NATO, to join all kinds of pro-Western structures.”

“Moldavia is now flooded with all sorts of non-profit organizations, Western foundations with which state institutions work,” he added.

The deputy director of the RUDN Institute for Strategic Studies and Forecasts noted that “Moldova will definitely turn into a state entity under external governance.”

“It will be very profitable for external curators to bring the situation in Transnistria to the point of exploding in order to once again instigate unrest on the territory near the Russian borders and involve our country in another serious conflict. And we will have to answer because Russia is the guarantor of Transnistria’s security,” Danyuk added.

He stressed that “Sandu’s victory brings challenge to Russia.”

On November 15, the second round of voting was held. The current head of state Igor Dodon and the leader of the pro-European Party of Action and Solidarity Maia Sandu ran for presidency.

After counting 100% of ballots, Sandu received 57.75% of votes. Dodon “preliminarily congratulated” his opponent, although he claimed numerous violations. The incumbent president intended to challenge the election results in court, and he urged his supporters not to go out on the streets. Putin already congratulated Sandu.
