The events in Moldova where a mass demonstration is taking place are being closely watched by the Russian administration, the Kremlin has said.

"Everyone casts a wary eye on what is happening [there], on the developments in Moldova," Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters On Sept.7.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is aware of the Chisinau events.

As to whether the president may make a statement on the Moldova situation, Peskov said, "I so far cannot say."

Tens of thousands of people held the most massive protest in years in Chisinau's central square on Sunday. They passed a resolution demanding early parliamentary elections, resignation of the president, universal presidential elections, a reshuffle of the administration of law enforcement authorities, and the return of one billion euros stolen from the banking system.

The protesters spent the night in the camp in the center of Chisinau and their numbers doubled in the morning. Armed conflict veterans sympathizing with the protesters are helping to maintain order.
