Moldova declares Russian deputy premier persona non grata

Moldova declares Russian deputy premier persona non grata”

The Moldovan government declaring Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin a persona non-grata is absolutely unacceptable, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday, Sputniknews reports.

"In addition, the Russian deputy prime minister made insulting appreciations of the authorities of our country, which have a denigrating and a lying character", the statement added.

Declaring Rogozin persona non grata is one of "Chisinau's irresponsible steps aimed at a deliberate undermining of bilateral Russian-Moldovan relations", Russia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The government approved the move initiated by Foreign Minister Andrei Galbur on August 2, according to which Rogozin is barred from entering or crossing over Moldova.

The incident sparked ire in Moscow and saw Rogozin lash out furiously at the authorities in both Romania and Moldova.

Last week, a passenger plane with Rogozin aboard was refused by Romania to enter its airspace as the Russian senior official is sanctioned by the European Union over Crimea and the Ukrainian conflicts.

The country's pro-EU government is locked in a bitter feud with Moscow-friendly president Igor Dodon, who wants to tear up a deal for closer ties with Brussels.

Around a tenth of the ex-Soviet state's population of three million is living in the internationally unrecognised separatist republic of Transnistria, which broke away from Moldova in the 1990s.
