A senior aide to Russia’s president Vladimir Putin has said Moscow is planning for more constructive ties with Bulgaria and the ex-Soviet republic of Moldova.

Yuri Ushakov made the comments to Russian media earlier on Wednesday.

The latest signal from the Kremlin that it is hoping for warmer relations with Sofia and Chisinau follows recent presidential elections in the two eastern European countries.

In Bulgaria, former air force commander Rumen Radev was elected on a pro-Russian anti-migrant ticket, while Igor Dodon, secured victory in Moldova.

During his election campaign Dodon argued that his country’s association agreement with the EU be scrapped and replaced with membership of the Russia-led Eurasian economic union.
