Moldova Expels Foreigners For Alleged “Subversive Actions”

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

Moldova’s Intelligence and Security Service, SIS, has issued a statement saying two foreign nationals who entered the country as tourists have been expelled from the country after they were caught gathering data “for the implementation of a plan to destabilize the internal situation in the country.”   The SIS did not identify the two individuals nor reveal what country they were from. The statement comes after antigovernmental protestors demanded the government pay for energy bills as the cost of living has dramatically increased. The protest was organized by Moldova’s pro-Russian Shor Party.  Earlier this month, Moldova President Maia Sandu warned against an alleged plot by Russia to overthrow the current government.
