Moldova can unite with Romania only if the people have such a desire, President Maia Sandu said on the air of the Jurnal channel.

A survey conducted in December last year by the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives showed that 53.7% of the population was against unification with Romania (32.8% of respondents supported the idea). In the 2021 parliamentary elections, the unification-supporting parties Alliance for the Unification of Romanians and “Party of National Unity” together they did not even get 1% of the votes.

On April 26, Romanian Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu supported Sandu about what is happening in Transnistria, bordering Ukraine, where the Russian military operation is taking place. Several incidents have occurred there over the past week: in Tiraspol, the building of the Ministry of State Security was fired from a grenade launcher, in the village of Mayak, two antennas of the radio and television center that relayed Russian radio were disabled, and in the village of Parkany, an attack on a military unit took place. The government of the unrecognized republic considered these events acts of terrorism. After that, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the PMR announced shelling from the side of Ukraine of the village of Kolbasna, where one of the largest ammunition depots in Europe is located. On April 26, Sandu convened a meeting of the Supreme Security Council, at which she connected the incidents “with various forces inside Transnistria” interested in destabilizing the situation.
