Lawmakers Call for Response to Moldova Declaring Rogozin Persona Non-Grata
Rogozin was scheduled to meet with Moldovan President Igor Dodon last week, however his meeting was derailed. Romania refused to allow a Russian plane bound for Chisinau to enter its airspace because the deputy prime minister, who is on a sanctions list, was on board. Rogozin called this decision an "unfriendly move against the Moldovan president." The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday expressed strong protest to Romania in connection with the ban.

The Russian deputy prime minister was included in the EU sanctions list over his alleged involvement in undermining the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Russia has repeatedly denied involvement in the crisis in Ukraine.
