RUSSIAN AS OFFICIAL LANGUAGE IN MOLDOVA BY SEPTEMBER?
Moldovan Parliament Deputy Chairman Vadim Misin said on 26 July that
Russian will obtain the status of an official language in Moldova by
September, Flux reported. Speaking to representatives of ethnic
minority organizations at the meeting of the Coordinating Council on
Interethnic Issues, Misin said that the recently adopted law on
national minorities already gives the Russian language a status close
to that of an official one. According to Bucharest-based "Curentul,"
Misin also said that the governing Party of Moldovan Communists will
do their best to bring Moldova into the fold of the Russia-Belarus
Union. Similar statements have drawn protests from Bucharest, which
considers Moldova a "Romanian" state. Moldovan Premier Vasile Tarlev
on 27 July began an official visit to Romania. ZsM
