Moldova will join EU sanctions against Russia – parliament speaker

Speaker of the Parliament of Moldova Igor Grosu has stated that Moldova will be in solidarity with the European Union.

"We will be in solidarity with the EU. Our status and our European aspirations require this," Grosu told NewsMaker in an interview.
