Protest on day of U.S. Secretary of State’s visit. Organizers escorted to police station

A number of people gathered together on Dacia Boulevard in the capital city, near the City Gates, to protest against the visit by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who arrived in Moldova today. Because the demonstrators intentionally blocked the boulevard, the organizers of the protest were escorted to the police station, IPN reports. 

The General Police Inspectorate said that Dacia Boulevard was intentionally blocked, abusively ignoring the Chisinau City Hall’s decision and the Police’s requirements not to bar the roadway. For this reason, the organizers were taken to the police station for documentation. The persons are members of “Shor” organization and came mainly from ATU Gagauzia.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived in Moldova on Wednesday. The official is to have meetings with the country’s leadership. Together with President Maia Sandu, he will hold a press conference starting at 17:30.

This is Antony Blinken’s second visit to Moldova, after the one paid in March 2022.
