“Moldovan police said on Sunday they have foiled a plot by groups of Russia-backed actors who were specially trained to cause mass unrest during a protest the same day in the capital against the country’s new pro-Western government. The head of Moldova’s police, Viorel Cernauteanu, said in a news conference that an undercover agent had infiltrated groups of ‘diversionists,’ some Russian citizens, who had been promised $10,000 to organize ‘mass disorder’ to destabilize Moldova during a protest in the capital, Chisinau. Seven people were detained, he said.” (03/12/23)
