MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, hundreds gathered near the parliament to protest against Moldovan President Nicolae Timofti's decision to nominate Pavel Filip, the minister of informational technologies and communications and member of the ruling Democratic Party, for the post of the Moldovan prime minister.
Opposition forces in Moldova are expected to organize more protests on Thursday, demanding the resignation of the country’s government.
"The Kremlin, of course, is closely following all developments in Moldova. The Kremlin, of course, calls on all parties to respect law, to remain calm and hopes that all the forces that support either side will refrain from any violent actions," Peskov told reporters.
Since early September, major anti-government protests have gripped the Moldovan capital of Chisinau.
