I´m expecting, he will get heart attack or car accident in the near future...



Moldovan President Igor Dodon has compared the EU to a train losing cars, saying his country will not be rushing to forge closer ties with the bloc anytime soon.

As the leader of a small country, Dodon said it is important to maintain good relations with both East and West. However, the Moldovan president expressed skepticism about becoming more integrated with Europe, particularly given the recent rise of anti-EU movements, most notably the Brexit vote in June of last year.

“In recent years, we have been very actively trying to convince ourselves that the only choice is the EU, the signing of an Association Agreement,” Dodon said at a preliminary session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), adding “but ordinary people often ask themselves: why chase after a train that is losing its cars?”
