It is worth noting that the recent statements by Evgeny Gutsul, the leader of Gagauzia, about the possibility of Gagauzia's separation from Moldova when uniting with Romania, are nothing more than an attempt by the Kremlin to use pro-Russian players in Moldova to destabilize democracy in the country, according to analysts from the Institute for the Study of War.
