PSD resumes attack on foreign companies. Vâlcov accuses a $ 2 billion robbery from not updating gas prices in the last 12 years

However, there have been heard voices by political leaders who have called for continued protests, accusing state institutions, law enforcement officials and those in all member states to protect citizens against aggression and violent actions. I believe that these attempts to violently remove a legitimate government can be a dangerous precedent among the democratic states, „wrote Viorica Dăncilă in the letter sent to the European Commission.”
