Demonstrations Message for U.S. Citizens: Demonstrations

The U.S. Embassy would like to remind U.S. citizens of the possibility for demonstrations occurring at various locations in Chisinau to coincide with Moldovan Independence Day celebrations on August 27.  This week there have been social media calls for demonstrations and the Embassy continues to monitor.  The Embassy has no information regarding locations or times of these possible demonstrations.  Remember that demonstrations and large events intended to be peaceful can turn violent.  Avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.  Large public gatherings can affect all major incoming arteries to the city in which they occur.  Demonstrations in one city have the potential to lead to additional public rallies or demonstrations in other locations around the city and country.
