PRO-RUSSIAN EX-PRESIDENT OF MOLDOVA DETAINED FOR ALLEGED ‘TREASON’ AND CORRUPTION

On 24 May, EurActiv reported that Moldova had detained pro-Russian ex-president Igor Dodon on suspicion of treason and corruption, prosecutors said, as the conflict in neighbouring Ukraine has heightened tensions in the country.  Investigators suspect Dodon of having taken money in 2019 from a political ally and powerful oligarch, Vladimir Plahotniuc, who fled the country in 2020 under the shadow of graft allegations and has been refused entry by the US.  Dodon led Moldova between 2016 and 2020 and was openly backed by Moscow.
