Igor Dodon paid a visit to the presidential palace devastated in the mass riots of April 2009. He then posted pictures on social media and vowed to find extra-budget money to perform the repair works.
"I am shocked with the state of the building. I visited it in the morning of 7 April 2009. I have the impressed time stood still here," he wrote.
The president hopes the palace will be revamped by the Independence Day on August 27, this year.
