Ukrainian President Zelensky: Ukraine and Moldova don't want Russian troops in their territory

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky held a meeting with the Prime Minister of Moldova Maia Sandu in Kyiv. During the joint briefing, the Ukrainian President said that Ukraine and Moldova are against the presence of Russian troops in their territory.

"Ukraine and Moldova are united by one common desire: we don't want Russian troops in our territories. Also, we won't allow imposing so-called "federalization" on us,” said Zelensky. He also thanked Chisinau for supporting Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Earlier it was reported that the new Prime Minister of Moldova Maia Sandu will come to Ukraine with a working visit.

Earlier, Sandu accused the former Ukrainian government in cooperation with the administration of the Moldovan oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc "to ensure smuggling and corruption schemes that contributed to the survival" of the self-proclaimed government of Transnistria. She expects that the new Ukrainian government "will work to eliminate these schemes."

Sandu also said that Russia should withdraw its troops and weapons from the territory of Moldova.
