Moldova facing Russian hybrid warfare: defence minister

Designed to overthrow government in Chisinau

13 March, 16:33
(ANSA-AFP) - CHISINAU, MAR 13 - Moldova does not currently face "imminent military danger" but is subject to "hybrid warfare generated by Russia" that is designed to overthrow its government, its defence minister said on Monday. Pro-European Moldova has repeatedly accused Moscow of plotting to violently topple its government through saboteurs disguised as anti-government protesters, claims which Russia has denied.

"There isn't an imminent military danger against Moldova at present but there are other types of dangers that affect the country's security -- hybrid warfare," Anatolie Nosatii told AFP in an interview. He was speaking after anti-government demonstrations erupted at the weekend -- the latest in a string of such protests in the small former Soviet republic.
