The latest news I have is from an email sent around by a friend of ours in Chisinau a few hours ago:
Mihai Moscovici wrote this on Twitter on Tuesday, when the rioting in Chisinau was at its height:
[…] I talked to two friends in Chisinau yesterday - one in her office right in the center of town, in the heart of the protest area; the other at work on the edge of town.
To one of today's news items - “Today, protesters in Chisinau stormed the building of Moldova's presidential administration and raised the European Union's flag over it” - I'd like to add this: “Somewhat later, the European Union showed up and took its flag down.”
Finally, there are rumors that Russian FSB security service officers are in Chisinau, helping communist to deal with protesters (they have the experience), Russian MFA stated on their web-page that the “elections results in Moldova are in the interest of Moldovan and Russian people”, while Minister Lavrov stated to the media “he does not see a reason why there should be another round of elections”.
Now all is quite and calm in Chisinau, Moldova […]
