Moldovan PM says the country is not attracted by Russia’s ‘Eurasian Union’

Moldova’s Prime Minister Vlad Filat says the country sees its place in the European Union and isn’t attracted to the “Eurasian Union” envisaged by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

Filat said that his country was European “through its geography, history, and culture” and that Moldovans were very much in favor of further European integration via the EU.

“The Eurasian Union is still just a project, but the EU is a reality,” said Filat, whose pro-Western government plans to start negotiations for an association agreement with Brussels by the end of the year.
