Moldova’s membership in the EU is possible, not directly, but through creation of the “new Greater Romania,” Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev says.
- “Moldova has entered the long queue for accession to the EU, stretched across decades. Bon voyage! But [they] want is sooner! Therefore, there is another way to obtain the EU membership: creation of a new Greater Romania (Romania Mare),” the politician said on his Telegram channel, answering a question from TASS as to how soon Moldova could join the Union.
He noted that “Romanian politicians have been politically dancing in circles around Moldova” for a long time. Today, this is happening literally, he pointed out.
“The first joint meeting of Moldovan and Romanian parliaments was finalized by the lawmakers dancing while holding hands. It looked rather amusing,” Medvedev said.
“However, the consequences can be way less funny.”
