Moldova has begun the process of withdrawing from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). This was stated by the speaker of parliament and chairman of the ruling party, Igor Grosu.

“After 30 years, it became absolutely clear that the presence of the Republic of Moldova in the structures of the CIS did not help us resolve the Transnistrian conflict, withdraw the Russian army from the territory, did not protect us from economic embargoes in the most difficult times. Being in the CIS did not protect us from energy blackmail in the middle of winter, threats and official statements hostile to the independence and sovereignty of the Republic of Moldova. Being in the CIS did not protect the participating countries from military attacks, war and illegal occupation of sovereign territories. After one of its founding states, the Russian Federation, barbarously attacked another founding state, Ukraine, occupying territories and killing its citizens, this organization can no longer be called a community,” Grosu said, quoting Point.

According to the speaker, Moldova’s withdrawal from the Agreement is the first step. The next steps are being evaluated at the government and parliament levels.

“We have the determination and the responsibility to move away from the source of evil, poverty, war and destruction. For 30 years we have shown that we want democracy, freedom and prosperity at home. Step by step we are doing what citizens expect from us, we are providing our children with a stable, prosperous future, a European future. We will tell the whole world about this on May 21,” Grosu said.

According to the procedures, at the next regular meeting of the permanent apparatus of the Parliament, a proposal will be made to Prime Minister Dorin Recean with a request to prepare a legislative initiative to denounce the Convention on the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of the CIS Member States of 17.03.1998.

“We can no longer sit at the same table for discussions with the aggressor state,” Grosu concluded.
