The Foreign Ministry has initiated sanctions against the Romanian senator for threatening Ukraine’s national security.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has begun imposing sanctions on Romanian senators for calls to annex part of Ukraine. This was announced by Foreign Ministry spokesperson Oleg Nikolenko on his Facebook page on Friday, March 24.
On March 20, non-factional senator Diana Shoshoake filed a bill proposing to terminate the agreement on good neighborliness and cooperation between Romania and Ukraine. He called for the “attachment of historical territories”, namely: Northern Bukovina, Hertsu, Budzhak (Cahul, Bolgrad, Izmail), historical Maramuresh and Snake Island.
According to the senator, this measure will help prevent “forced ethnic assimilation of Romanians in Ukraine.” Another reason for the annexation of the Ukrainian lands, he called for Romania’s help to the Ukrainians during a massive war.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko called Shoshoak’s actions “a classic example of Russia’s revivalist method.”
“We strongly condemn the attempt to question the territorial integrity of Ukraine, to raise the spirit of good neighborliness between Ukraine and Romania,” he said.
In addition, the Foreign Ministry initiated sanctions against the senator for threatening the national security of Ukraine.
Diana Shoshoacke is a lawyer, founder of the SOS party and a non-factional senator in the Romanian Parliament. He has been criticized more than once for his ties to Russia.
It will be recalled that last year, the Minister of Defense of Romania, Vasile Dincu, resigned after he said that negotiations with Russia may be the only chance for peace in Ukraine.
In early March 2023, the Romanian Parliament, in a joint meeting of the two chambers, adopted a declaration in support of Ukraine. The document condemned Russia’s aggression and aggression against Ukraine.
