Journalist: Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov said he would like to consolidate the Russian language in Moldova. What does this mean?
Popescu: Please ask Mr Lavrov! You know that in Moldova, there's no problem regarding the functioning of Russian language, the mass media in Russian language, the way people communicate on streets or in educational institutions. From our point of view, we don't think Russian language clashes with other things in the territory of Moldova.
