Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier in the week that the Moldovan government “is following in the footsteps of Kyiv” after Transdniestria turned to Moscow to help its economy withstand “pressure” from the Moldovan government, which the Chisinau administration dismissed as a propaganda event.
