Chairman of the National Security, Defence and Public Order Committee of the Parliament, Chiril Moţpan, is of the opinion that the dismissal of the Government was intentionally caused by Igor Dodon, for personal reasons. "At least this is stated by the sources with access to information. Thus, they claim that Dodon at any cost wanted control over the Prosecutor General, who would otherwise have initiated (well-grounded!) criminal proceedings and endangered his personal safety, which would have substantially reduced his chance to run for president," says the deputy, quoted by IPN.
"Moreover, Dodon wants to take advantage of the" services "of a hired prosecutor in order to have the necessary tools to intimidate his political opponents, according to Plahotniuc's model. My sources also maintain that Dodon directed several concerted actions to prepare the dismissal of the Sandu Government: carrier protests, harsh criticism of the cabinet, media manipulation as regards alleged agreements with the PDM to create a new parliamentary majority. Dodon understands very well that the development partners of the Republic of Moldova are expecting a real reform of the justice system and will not tolerate its torpedoing”, says Chiril Moţpan in a Facebook post.
According to him, on the other hand, "Russia does not support the current president financially because of his illicit enrichment ambitions similar to those of Plahotniuc". "In fact, Dodon's only contacts in the Russian business environment are those like Chaika, who has connections in the Kremlin administration. However, Moscow has given him the green light to break the alliance with ACUM bloc and trigger early elections as long as he has no problems with integrity. This condition, however, stops Dodon from pursuing this scenario,” contends the MP.
In his opinion, "from all this it is clear that Igor Dodon is on his own and plays games that are not clear even to his entourage, to the members of the Socialist Party." Chiril Moţpan also argues that, in order to stay in power, Igor Dodon plays "va banque". "In fact, this is how the biggest dictators fall," the deputy points out.
