"In Soroca, Mrs Ostapciuc (Eugenia Ostapciuc, the president of the parliamentary group of the PCRM, e.n.) brought five sewing machines taken without documents from the Agency for Material Reserves and Humanitarian Aid. Stepaniuc (Victor Stepaniuc, the Deputy Prime Minister, e.n.) took s ewing machines from the same batch of humanitarian aid to Floresti district," the AMN says in the communiqué.

The party also accuses Victor Stepaniuc of donating two gas stoves to the boarding school in Hansca village of Ialoveni district in order to gain support in elections. "We are looking for them to see to whom they were donated, but the Prosecutor's Office can start the search with the Agency in Chisinau, the communiqué also says.

According to the AMN, the humanitarian aid stored in central state institutions' depots is taken by the Communists to the meetings with voters. The AMN gives as example the humanitarian aid offered to the Ministry of Defense that was unloaded, according to the party, before the New Year at the Parliament's storehouse. The party also says that they know the names of those that unloaded the goods and they will be made known if need be.
