According to NewsMaker, we are talking about a video that was published by the ex-deputy of the Moldovan parliament, Iurie Renita, in 2020. On it, Plahotniuc and his deputy Sergei Yaralov hand over a package to Dodon. Renita claimed that the meeting took place in 2019, the package contained a large amount of money.
Dodon and Plahotniuc are discussing on video the creation of a coalition in parliament, which would have a constitutional majority. As TV-8 noted, Dodon said that he “constantly writes notes to [Vladimir] Putin,” without explaining their content.
In June 2020, the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office of Moldova refused to open a case against Dodon, because they did not reveal “elements of a crime”. The department explained that the check could not establish the contents of the package, and the decision was based on evidence collected legally. on the basis of exhaustive evidence, not conjecture,” — emphasized then in the Moldovan prosecutor's office.

Dodon denied receiving money from Plahotniuc, inciting he explained the criminal case by the desire to achieve his “flight from the country”; and an attempt to divert attention from Moldova's problems “when things go wrong.”
