Moldovan Foreign Minister Nicu Popescu said that Chisinau intends to impose sanctions against 25 Russian citizens. He told reporters about this, RIA Novosti reports.

According to him, we are talking mainly about a ban on entry into Moldova, about freezing bank accounts or assets of those persons who are somehow involved in hostilities in Ukraine.

Earlier, the Parliament of Moldova adopted a declaration on the aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.

55 deputies from the ruling Action and Solidarity party voted for the adoption of the declaration. The bloc of communists and socialists (BCS) left the sessions of the parliament. The faction of the Shor party boycotted this meeting.

The parliamentarians urged the Russian Federation to "immediately cease hostilities in Ukraine and unconditionally withdraw all military forces and equipment."

They also called the conflict in Ukraine "an unjustified war of aggression" and accused Moscow of war crimes.
