Citizens of the Republic of Moldova will be stripped of their Romanian passports

Summary of Disinformation

Citizens of the Republic of Moldova will be stripped of their Romanian passports. According to a new Romanian law, all the documents will have to be changed in order to correspond to a new grammatical revision. The letter “î” will be replaced in most of the cases (e.g. geographical names) with the letter “â”. The Moldovan citizens with Romanian passports will have to change their documents.

Disproof

The headline is misinforming the readers: citizens of the Republic of Moldova will not be stripped of their Romanian passports. According to the new law, mentioned by Stopfals.md, the changes in the identity papers, passports and driving licenses will be made upon request or at the expiry of their validity. No one is obliged to do it immediately.
