CHISINAU (QHA) -

Moldova’s Defense Ministry suspends all relations with the Russian military attache in Chisinau because of his presence in the parade of the unrecognized Republic of Transnistria.

Moldovan Defense Minister Anatol Sharalu demanded either officer's apology or his exile.

- Such actions do not fit into the mainstream of the Republic of Moldova's relations with Russia. They also contradict the statements about the official policy toward our country, said the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Moldova, Natalia Gherman.
