The former Romanian president Traian Băsescu said during an interview that “more than half of Moldovans need to be beaten”.
The statement of the former Romanian president Traian Băsescu wasn't presented entirely.
In fact he was asked: "How do you intend to convince [Moldova's President Igor] Dodon's supporters that the Republic of Moldova needs unification (with Romania)?"
Basescu answered: "This is no longer needed. Those who support Mr. Dodon need to be beaten in elections! Their opinion can not be changed". Further debunking by API.
