The Moldovan government is recalling Ambassador to Russia, Dmitry Braghis, who was also the head of the country’s diplomatic mission in Tajikistan. A decision on the issue was made at a Cabinet meeting earlier in the day.
Axar.az reports that, the draft decision was presented by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, Daniela Morari, who provided no explanation for recalling the diplomat. The press service of Moldova’s Foreign Ministry refused to comment on the proposed move either. According to local legislation, the decision should be endorsed by Moldovan President Igor Dodon.
Braghis served as Moldova’s Ambassador to Russia and Tajikistan since November 27, 2015, and headed the government from 1999 to 2001 under President Petru Lucinschi.
The decision came as a surprise for the Russian Foreign Ministry, the reasons behind such actions are unclear, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told.
"The news was somewhat unexpected," he said. "Perhaps, questions about the reasons for such decisions should be addressed to Chisinau."
