VIENNA (Sputnik) — Moscow will continue answering to the actions of Chisinau if Moldova continues banning Russian journalists from entering the country, Russia’s permanent envoy to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said.
"I think that if Chisinau continues such [restrictive] practice, we will raise and elaborate this issue in the future," Alexander Lukashevich told RIA Novosti.
