Two anti-government protests kick off in Moldovan capital
Thousands of protesters rallied Sunday against Moldova's government at two separate demonstrations in the nation's capital Chisinau, RIA Novosti reported.
Civic platform Dignity and Truth (DA) claimed that its rally in the city's central square drew around 10,000 participants.
Demonstrators with Romanian tricolors largely outnumbered those with Moldovan national flags. They called for Moldova to be reunited with Romania, after almost 25 years of independence.
A separate anti-government protest outside the Academy of Sciences in Chisinau managed to attract only 100 people. It was organized by the Communist political party "Our Home is Moldova" (OHM). Protesters accused the government of corruption and demanded that it steps down.
