The Supreme Security Council, Dodon™ // Without MoD, Anticorruption, MFA and Reintegration
For the first time in the history of Moldova, the Ministry of Defence will not be represented in the Supreme Security Council, the creation of which was signed today by the president. Moreover, from the Supreme Security Council will not be part neither the head of CNA, and the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Economy, Finance as well as the Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration.
The ex-Defense Minister, Anatoly Salaru, claims that Dodon wants the vulnerability of the Republic of Moldova and to decrease the ability to fight of the National Army.
"Igor Dodon misses no day without digging at the foundation of the national security. Today he signed the order of formation the Supreme Security Council and for the first time in the history of Moldova, the Ministry of Defence is not part of CSS. Without a titular Minister, Igor Dodon could include the Chief of Staff, which is the direct manager of the National Army. The fact that Igor Dodon wants the vulnerability the Republic of Moldova, the reduced capacity to fight of the National Army are already known things, both internally and externally, but I think we are witnessing another, more subtle scenario. Hopefully Igor Dodon and PSRM will not come to ensure "the neutrality" by abolishing the National Army," he wrote on his Facebook page.
The trusted person of the president, Ion Ceban, told the reporter of Deschide.MD that the absence of the Ministry of Defence in SSC results from the fact that the institution does not have a leader.
Deputy Defence Minister, George Galbur, told us that, normally, the president was to include in the Supreme Security Council and a representative of the Ministry of Defence, but "the decision is his".
"The Ministry of Defence should be represented in CSS, but the Supreme Commander decided otherwise," the official stated.
However, for more information we contacted the Secretary CSS, Artur Gutium, but until the time of publication of this material, he has not answered the call.
We specify that according to Regulation of the Supreme Security Council, approved on October 8, 1997, the members of the Supreme Security Council are from office, the Prime Minister, the Defense Minister, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Minister of Internal Affairs, the Director of SIS, the Minister of Finance, the Chief Staff of the Armed Forces, the head of Civil Protection and Emergencies Department and the secretary of the Supreme Security Council. The President may appoint as members of the Supreme Security Council, and other officials.
