MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign ministry said on Monday it welcomed the formation of a ruling coalition and government in Moldova, and hoped to restore good relations between Moscow and Chisinau.

It also said it hoped the situation in Moldova’s capital would stabilise soon after Russia’s ally, President Igor Dodon, was temporarily relieved of his duties by a Moldovan court to allow a stand-in to call a snap election.
