CHISINAU (Sputnik) – Moldovan Foreign Minister Andrei Golbur said at a government session, "I propose to declare Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin persona non-grata in Moldova and ban him from crossing the territory of the country."
The airplane landed on an aerodrome in Minsk to refuel and contact the Russian authorities regarding further actions. After that, Rogozin returned to Moscow.
On Wednesday, Moldovan President Igor Dodon said that Rogozin had confirmed his plans to visit Moldova despite proposals of country's authorities to cancel the visit as the delegation had reportedly planned to arrive in the European nation using the aircraft of Russia's Aerospace Forces.
Dodon criticized his government over the possible cancellation of Rogozin's visit as an unfriendly move.
