Moldovan MPs demand explanation from prime minister after Ukraine lifts sanctions from Metallurgical Plant in Transnistria at his request

A group of Moldovan parliamentarians demanded an explanation from the Moldovan Prime Minister Pavel Filip regarding the letter he wrote to the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in which he requested to remove sanctions from the Moldovan Metallurgical Plant (MMP), the largest taxpayer in the so-called Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, reports Radio Liberty.

“What are the legal requirements of MMPs under Moldovan legislation that guarantees the factory's withdrawal from the sanctions of a warring country? What is the government policy regarding economic operators from the separatist region that accumulate astronomical debts of around $ 7 billion in a corporation in which the Government of the Republic of Moldova is a minority shareholder, and thus chooses not to protect the interests of the country? ”, they asked in a corresponding request.

The head of the largest opposition party in Moldova, Andrei Năstase, urged European institutions to speak out about Philip’s actions.

Previously it was reported that the head of the Moldovan government, Pavel Filip, helped to remove Ukrainian sanctions from the Moldovan Metallurgical Plant (MMP), which is located in the unrecognized Transnistria, by allegedly writing a letter to Poroshenko.
