In turn, Kozak promised to talk with Vlad Plahotniuc.
Dodon: I have debt of the party for two months, what should I do further on?
Kozak: You will take power, let Vlad (Plahotniuc) give you money.
Dodon: What, I need to ask Plahotniuc?
Kozak: No, I will talk with him about this.
In this video, Igor Dodon was talking with Vlad Plahotniuc how much money he received monthly from Russia for PSRM.
