KIEV/CHISINAU (Reuters) - Moldova recalled its ambassador to Russia for consultations in response to the harassment and intimidation by Russian authorities of Moldovan politicians and officials, the Moldovan foreign ministry said on Monday.

Moldova's pro-Western government and Russia have been embroiled in a series of rows this year. The Chisinau government says its officials are being mistreated partly to derail a probe into a Russian-led money laundering operation. Russia has accused Moldova of "some openly anti-Russian actions".
