The RF Civic Chamber to intensify contacts with the Moldovan and Bulgarian NGOs
This was announced by Elena Sutormina, Chairwoman of the Commission on Public Diplomacy and Support for Compatriots Living Abroad
According to Elena Sutormina, Chairwoman of the Commission on Public Diplomacy and Support for Compatriots Living Abroad, the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation will intensify contacts with non-governmental organizations of Moldavia and Bulgaria and define a joint work plan for 2017, RIA Novosti news agency says.
At the elections held on Sunday in Moldova was won by Igor Dodon, Chairman of the Socialists Party of Moldova leads with 52,29% of votes. It was reported earlier that Dodon intends to restore strategic partnership with Russia, return Moldovan production to the Russian market and normalize energy cooperation. In Bulgaria, General Rumen Radev, nominated by the initiative committee headed by the "BSP" socialist party, has won the election with 59.35% of votes.
"I would like to emphasize that in the nearest future the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation, considering the outcome of the elections, will intensify relationships with NGOs of Moldova and Bulgaria and will define a joint working plan for 2017 and further " — Sutormina said.
At the same time, Sutormina noted that the victory of "pro-Russian candidates" at the presidential election in Moldova and Bulgaria creates a "positive background for the perception of Russian foreign policy prospects and general world trends".
"We could see that in a number of countries it is socially-oriented leaders which come to the fore. In the XXI century, in many liberal market economies, a conflict between rich and poor has become topical once again and a large electorate supports politicians who focus on stability and justice. On the other hand, such "brands" as the EU and the US are going out of the mainstream. Residents of many countries recognize that a wider range of foreign policy priorities is more reliable in the long term", — Sutormina said adding that she hopes for support of foreign elites in a willingness of "political leaders to rapprochement with Russia".
