ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) - Moldovan President Igor Dodon said on Friday that Moldova was unable to join the European Union in its current form, questioning the benefits of integration with the bloc after Britain voted to quit.

"Ordinary people are asking themselves very often: why rush to catch a train that is losing wagons? Brexit. Let's see what happens next," Dodon told the St Petersburg International Economic Forum.
