Igor Grosu’s announcement does not mean Moldova could leave the organisation outrightly as there are structures and procedures to be made. He was furious at a point saying “the procedure could take weeks and what comes next?. What harm could he do to us”. He revealed, directing his sentiments to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He also stressed how it is important to leave CIS, narrating how Ukraine left. “Withdrawal from CIS Assembly is the first step. Ukraine left this organisation. The Republic of Moldova is a free country to make sovereign decisions. We demonstrated that we want democracy, freedom at home”.
