Several members of the center-right opposition Civic Platform Dignity and Truth (DA) clashed with police near the office and the house of First Deputy Chairman of the Democratic Party of Moldova Vladimir Plahotniuc, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported Sunday.

CHISINAU (Sputnik) – Earlier in the day, DA staged an anti-government rally calling for the resignation of the Cabinet of Pavel Filip from the Democratic Party in Chisinau.

The rally’s activists adopted a resolution of the protest, stating that Moldova is “a captured state, which must be returned to the people,” and that the country’s state structures have to become independent.

The raging crowd has broken through the police cordon near Plahotniuc’s house, chanting slogans. The police officers do not allow the demonstrators to move further. At present, additional police forces have been deployed in the area.
