In Moldova, the ruling party approved in first reading a bill on the name change of the Moldovan language to Romanian KXan 36 Daily News

But not all officials liked the change. Opposition communists and socialists rejected the bill and lined up near the parliament podium with banners. “Don’t mock the constitution” and “Moldova, Moldovans, Moldovans” were written on some. Others called for the resignation of the current government and a popular vote on the issue. Along the way, the opposition shouted: “What a shame!”

PDS members tried to calm down the opponents and put them back in their seats, but a fight broke out. Deputies from the ruling party confiscated and tore up opposition posters.

The language battles in the Moldovan parliament were commented on by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova. “Real support for American-style democracy. Under (Mayan President) Sandu, Moldova is abandoning its native language,” the diplomat wrote on her Telegram channel.

Disputes over the name of the republic’s language have been going on for more than a year. In 2013, the country’s Constitutional Court ruled that the state language of Moldova is Romanian. But in the country’s Constitution, Moldovan is listed in the language column. But in the Declaration of Independence of Moldova, signed during the country’s exit from the USSR, Romanian is indicated. Later, the Constitutional Court decided that the 1991 document was still superior to the main law of the country, which explains the vigorous activity in this regard.
