O-TON 1 - Maia Sandu, President of Moldova (Frau, English, 8 Sek.): "We hope to have a decision on initiating the negotiations in the next months, in the next few months." 2. O-TON 2 - Maia Sandu, President of Moldova (Frau, English, 43 Sek.): "The main reason is to stay part of the free world. We see what happens to Ukraine. We see that Russia is trying to stop countries in our region from becoming democratic. We ourselves face the Russian threats and attempts to destabilise the country. Of course, nothing compares to what happens in Ukraine, but we see the risks and we do believe that we can save our democracy only as part of the EU. We do believe that Russia will continue to be a big source of instability for the years to come and we need to protect ourselves."
