"Mr. Peter Michalko is closely acquainted with the situation in our country, because of the fact that he has worked in the Republic of Moldova in various positions and in different periods of time since the 90's until present. Thus, I consider that Ambassador Peter Michalko will not be surprised by the EU flag flying over departmental buildings or cars.
