Nikolai Popescu, the Foreign Minister of Moldova, has said that the country cannot join sanctions against Russia because the Moldovan economy is too weak.


"Several sanctions are being applied in Moldova, particularly in the financial and banking sector. At this point, the Republic of Moldova's level of stability and its ability to deal with problems in different areas don't allow it to join the European Union's many embargos.


Several thousand people had earlier protested in the Moldovan capital, Chisinau, because of high prices.


Igor Dodon, former President of the Republic of Moldova, said earlier that inflation in Moldova reached 22.2% in April, an absolute record among European countries.
