"We spoke publicly about Russia's actions to try and undermine the position of President Sandu and the Government, precisely because the President and the Government have a courageous position based on principles, being on the side of freedom and democracy. Moscow does these things in several ways. And you and we know the effects and power of disinformation, and Moscow has started a war of disinformation in this region. Our goal is to continue to be with Moldova to support it in a practical way against attempts to undermine the democratic government and the President".

According to the official, the Republic of Moldova can count on the full support of the United States.

“We work closely when it comes to fighting disinformation through what we call the State Department's Global Engagement Center, which is responsible for detecting and countering state-sponsored disinformation globally.

We want to help Moldova become more resilient in front of them so that Moldova can resist Moscow's efforts".
