TIGIPKO, he told about it, making comments on the statement of the Acting President of Moldova Mihai GIMPU that he considers itself(himself) as the Romanian, celebrates the Romanian national holidays and will achieve the constitutional renaming of the Moldavian language into Romanian.
According to S. TIGIPKO, "implementation of the project Great Romania bears direct threat to Ukraine, and we are obliged to counteract it".
"One of these days Mihai GIMPU will officially head Moldova. And it is already quite clear that it will conduct the country in the direction of elimination of its sovereignty and accession to Romania. Realities of world politics are that that it directly touches radical interests of Ukraine", - S. TIGIPKO emphasized.

For Ukraine it would become accident", - the candidate for president declared.
