Moldovan opposition calls to follow Armenia’s example

The Moldovan opposition calls on people to hold series of protests against the hike of gas and electricity tariffs, TASS reports.

“It’s important to unite and follow Armenia’s example, where people held mass protests after the attempted 18% rise in electricity tariffs,” ex-MP, leader of the “Our Home — Moldova” Party Grigory Petrenko said.

He said the rallies should be held every day and invited the first one on July 22 at the National Energy Regulatory Agency. Petrenko urged other opposition parties to support the protests.

Last week the Regulatory Agency decided to increase the electricity and gas prices 30% and 15% respectively.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
