A proposal to ban the Parliament of Moldova use the Russian language in the work is another initiative that leads to the disintegration of the country, the head of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian integration and relations with compatriots Leonid Kalashnikov.

The liberal party of Moldova has launched an initiative that provides mandatory knowledge of the state language by deputies, using it during meetings, when speaking from the parliamentary rostrum and at the time of submission of bills, and the refusal of translation of documents in Russian language.

«Their initiatives are all directed to narrow it down, that it is in a single state called the Soviet Union, the use of the Russian language. And the goal is sort of to the West. Well. In this sense, do not be surprised then the disintegration of their own country. Another initiative, which is aimed at it,» said Kalashnikov RIA Novosti.

The Deputy reminded that the consequence of this policy of the Moldovan authorities is the situation in Transnistria and Gagauzia

The politician said that, in his opinion, Moscow should not in any way to respond to such an initiative, since it «already answered their own population» of Moldova.

«In this sense we will public support. I think that Russia needs to maintain this population in its own right,» he concluded.

Transnistria, 60% of inhabitants are Russians and Ukrainians sought to secede from Moldova even before the collapse of the USSR, fearing that on the wave of nationalism Moldova will join Romania. In 1992, after a failed attempt of the authorities of Moldova force to solve the problem, Transnistria has become virtually beyond the control of Chisinau’s territory.

More than 98% of the participants were in favor of Moldova’s integration into the Customs Union at the time of trade-economic Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
