Moldovan govt warns its officials not to travel to Russia due to "humiliating abuse"

Moldovan govt warns its officials not to travel to Russia due to "humiliating abuse"The Moldovan government says Moldovan lawmakers, government officials, and intelligence services "are being abusively stopped on entry to the Russian Federation, interrogated, and treated in a humiliating manner by representatives of a Russian special intelligence service".

This is reported by Radio Liberty.

The government in Chisinau said on March 9 that it thinks the "humiliating" actions are in retaliation for its investigation into an alleged $22 billion scheme to launder Russian money through Moldova's financial system.

Prime Minister Pavel Filip and parliamentary speaker Andrian Candu met with Russia's ambassador to Moldova, Farit Mukhametshin, to make an official complaint.

"Until a solution is found to this issue, Moldovan officials are asked to abstain from visits to the Russian Federation," the Moldovan statement said.
