Moldova's pro-Russian president, Igor Dodon, has warned his country's pro-Western government against impeaching him, saying it could trigger a revolution. Speaking to RFE/RL's Moldovan Service on September 26 in Chisinau, Dodon said the country's ruling coalition should hold a referendum if it wants to remove him. Dodon has been at odds with Moldova's pro-Western government after winning the presidential election last November. Political leaders from the ruling coalition led by the Democratic Party have warned that parliament might try to suspend Dodon for trying to block Moldova’s military cooperation with NATO.
