Russia has severely criticized a Moldovan bill to deny an official status
to the Russian language and declare the Moldovan language identical to
Romanian.

In a statement issued by the Russia Foreign Ministry Saturday, Moscow said
the proposed law would run counter to Moldova's Constitution and destroy
the country's ethnic harmony.

The bill was tabled by Moldova's Liberal Party.
