The article is about the PM Of Moldova Steps Down, Alleging “Crises Brought On By Russian Aggression”: After 18 months in office, Moldova’s pro-Western government resigned as a result of the economic and political crises that followed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Natalia Gavrilita, the prime minister, announced her resignation at a news conference on Friday, saying that no one could have predicted that her government would “manage so many crises caused by Russian aggression.”
Hours earlier, the government summoned Russia’s ambassador in protest after alleging that a Russian missile had breached Moldovan airspace.
After Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy claimed that Kyiv had uncovered a “plot for the destruction of Moldova” by Russian intelligence, Moldova’s intelligence service claimed on Thursday that Russia was attempting to destabilize the nation.
The nation’s Intelligence and Security Service (SIS) issued a statement saying that “subversive operations with the objective of undermining the Republic of Moldova, of destabilization, and breaking the public order were recognized.”
The SIS statement stated that it was unable to provide more information “due to the risk of jeopardizing various ongoing operational activities,” but added that it want to “reassure Moldova’s citizenry that all state institutions are functioning.”
Maia Sandu, the president, accepted Gavrilita’s resignation. Thank you so much for leading the nation through so many problems and making such a great sacrifice, Sandu added. “The country was governed responsibly, with a lot of attention and serious work, despite extraordinary problems.”
Dorin Recean, Sandu’s pro-European security adviser, is likely to be accepted without issue as her replacement.
The 2.5 million-person former Soviet republic has experienced a number of issues, including skyrocketing prices, a significant influx of Ukrainian refugees, and a severe energy crisis accompanied by power outages after Moscow drastically slashed supply.
The small nation, sandwiched between Romania and Ukraine, had mass riots last year as a result of the sharp price rises, particularly for Russian gas. Protesters demanded the resignation of the administration and the president.

An economist, Gavrilita, 41, was chosen in August 2021 after her pro-Western PAS party won elections on a reformist, pro-EU platform. Additionally running on an anti-corruption and pro-European platform, Sandu won a resounding victory in the 2020 election.
At a time when corruption schemes had taken over all the institutions and the oligarchs felt untouchable, I assumed office as the government with an anti-corruption, pro-development, and pro-European agenda, Gavrilita remarked.
“Those who attempted to blackmail us with energy instantly believed that we would cave in. I have faith in the Moldovan people. I have faith in Moldova. I am confident that we can overcome all of the obstacles and problems.
In a diplomatic victory for Sandu, EU leaders recognized Moldova as a membership candidate last year. However, Russia maintains soldiers stationed in Transdniestria, the territory of Moldova that broke away, and it opposes any efforts to join the 27-nation bloc.
