Moldovan police confiscated illegal political funding in the amount of one million euros from people who returned to the country from a meeting of Moldovan pro-Russian parties in Moscow.

Chisinau has previously repeatedly accused the Kremlin of trying to increase tension in Moldova.

During the night from Monday to Tuesday, around 150 Moldovans were searched, mostly at the Chisinau airport, police chief Victor Kernauteanu said.

In total, more than 20 million Moldovan lei (one million euros) were confiscated. With these means, “illegal financing of political parties from dark sources” took place, the police said.

At a party event in Moscow, the establishment of the political bloc “Victorie” (“Victory”) was announced, in the run-up to the presidential elections of Moldova and the referendum on the country’s membership in the European Union.

The new bloc is built around pro-Russian oligarch Ilan Shor, who is on the run from law enforcement and has been convicted of fraud behind bars in Moldova.

The chief of staff of Moldovan President Maia Sandu, Adrian Balutel, called the politicians gathered in Moscow “top servants of the Kremlin regime” in a post on the “Telegram” platform.

On the other hand, the acting head of the General Prosecutor’s Office of Moldova, Ion Munteanu, said that the actions of the politicians gathered in Moscow are being evaluated in connection with suspicion of treason.

“From our point of view, these actions tend to threaten national security,” Munteanu told Chisinau’s PROTV.
