    Do you reckon the euro-aligned parties/politicians there will mess with the elections?
    Moldova is hardly a pinnacle of political transparency.

    I fully expect it, the american and american-backed scum will do everything to rig the elections, just like they did in Romania not long ago.
    I would not be suprised of bad news unfortunately, but hope for a defeat of the american backed scumbags in Moldova.

    Russian deputy PM blasts statement on peacekeepers’ withdrawal from Transnistria

    Moldova’s defense minister said earlier that he had reached an agreement with his Ukrainian counterpart to draw up a plan on withdrawing Russian military and weaponry from Transnistria


    MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. Kiev and Chisinau forgot about coordinating with Moscow and Tiraspol the proposed withdrawal of Russian peacekeepers from Transnistria, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Monday.

    Moldova’s Defense Minister Anatol Salaru said earlier in Chisinau that he reached an agreement with his Ukrainian counterpart to draw up a plan by the end of the year on withdrawing Russian military and weaponry from Transnistria. The plan envisages the creation of a "green corridor" via Ukraine’s territory.

    "Didn’t they forget about consulting with Russia and Transnistria? This sounds like Honduras promises to help Guatemala in the withdrawal of US forces from Korea," Rogozin wrote on this Twitter page.

    Ukraine’s Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak said he would not go into details about his Sunday’s meeting in Odessa with the Moldovan counterpart. The minister reiterated Kiev’s official position on the enclave’s status in a statement on the Twitter page. "We respect Moldova’s territorial integrity and support the intention to withdraw Russia’s military base from the country’s territory."

    Russia’s peacekeepers have been in Transnistria since summer 1992 in line with the deal signed by the Russian and Moldovan presidents in the presence of Transnistria’s leader. The agreement envisages the permanent stationing of joint peacekeeping forces in the region consisting of contingents from Russia, Moldova and Transnistria, and also ten military observers from Ukraine.

    The agreement’s implementation allowed launching multilateral talks on resolving the conflict in the "5+2" format (Moldova, Transnistria, Russia, the OSCE, Ukraine and observers from the US and the EU).

    Moldovan president lists conditions to resume extended talks on Transnistrian settlement

    These include draft decisions on recognition of diplomas and car number plates of the unrecognized republic and the problem of communications between the two banks of the Dniester, Igor Dodon said

    CHISINAU, July 22. /TASS/. Chisinau has handed over to Tiraspol a list of conditions to resume 5+2 talks on the Transnistrian settlement, Moldovan President Igor Dodon said on Friday.

    In his words, these include draft decisions on recognition of diplomas and car number plates of the unrecognized republic and the problem of communications between the two banks of the Dniester.

    "We have found solutions and offered them [to Tiraspol]. Unofficially, they say these are good solutions but they don’t want to sign them so far," he told RTR-Moldova television channel. "It is the only chance to convene the 5+2 format in September. If we have nothing concrete on at least one of the issues, it will be very uneasy to talks the partners into meeting in the extended format."

    According to Dodon, Chisinau also expects concessions from Tiraspol on such issues as Moldovan schools in Transnistria and joint use of land around Dubasari.

    He said that Transnistria’s unwillingness to make concessions obviously stems from Chisinau’s plans to establish control over Transnistria’s borders and opening of the first checkpoint. Tiraspol claims that Moldova is seeking to exert pressure on Transnistria by means of controlling its foreign trade operations. Thus, Transnistrial President Vadim Krasnoselsky warned that deployment of Moldovan law enforcers in the vicinity of places of deployment of the Transnistrian military’s is fraught with aggravation of the conflict and may threaten regional stability.

    In this context, Moldova’s president said he pins hopes for a Moldovan visit by Russian Deputy Prime Minister and president’s envoy for Transnistrian settlement Dmitry Rogozin scheduled for late July. According to Dodon, it is planned to hold a trilateral meeting with the Transnistrian leader.

    The Transnistrian foreign ministry earlier called to resume 5+2 talks over growing tensions in the region. The Russian foreign ministry also expressed concern over the escalation of tension and supported the idea of arranging such talks. However, Wolf-Dietrich Heim (c), Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office for the Transniestrian settlement process, who has recently visited Moldova and Transnistria, said that such extended talks should be preceded by bilateral agreements between Chisinau and Tiraspol that would be worded into official documents at the 5+2 talks.

    Transnistria, a largely Russian-speaking region, broke away from Moldova following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Its relations with Moldova’s central government in Chisinau have been highly mixed and extremely tense at times ever since then. In 1992 and 1993, tensions erupted into a bloody armed conflict that claimed the lives of hundreds of people on both sides.

    The fratricidal war was stopped after a peace agreement was signed in Moscow in 1992 and Russian peacekeepers were brought into the conflict area. Negotiations on the conflict’s peaceful settlement known as the 5+2 format talks (involving Moldova and Transnistria as parties to the conflict, Russia, Ukraine and the European security watchdog OSCE as mediators and the United States and the European Union as observers) started after that.

    Russia prepares sanctions against people who disrupted senior official’s visit to Moldova

    "Our sanctions will be measured and targeted," Deputy Prime Minster Dmitry Rogozin said

    MOSCOW, July 29. /TASS/. Russia is preparing retaliatory sanctions against people who decided to ban the Russian plane which carried Russian Deputy Prime Minster Dmitry Rogozin from entering Moldova and thus disrupted his visit to this country, Rogozin said on Saturday in an interview, an extract from which was broadcasted on the Russia 24 TV channel.

    He explained his sharp statement in Twitter on the future response made right after the incident a normal reaction of any man to the insult of people (passengers of the plane, including women and children).

    "There will be a response, of course. It, of course, will not be as emotional as the first reaction. We will determine who was behind these decisions in Chisinau, Bucharest, Budapest and Brussels. We will determine the people who took these decisions. Our sanctions will be measured and targeted," he said.

    Answering to the question on the terms of retaliatory measures, Rogozin stressed that sanctions would be applied "when there will be suitable time and place." He added that Russia "knows how to respond."

    The Russian deputy prime minister also told about Moldovan President Igor Dodon’s reaction, saying that Dodon regarded the situation with banning the passage for the plane with the Russian delegation on board as a "provocation against him." "He formally acted as the inviting side, he carried certain responsibility, he had his own agreements with the government of his country. This is like a slap in the face," the Russian deputy prime minister concluded.

    Rogozin’s visit to Moldova on Friday was disrupted by Romania’s rejection to allow the Russian S7 plane carrying a Russian delegation on board to pass. The regular flight Moscow-Chisinau was banned to enter Romania’s airspace by the air-traffic management service on the pretext of a presence of a "sanctioned person" on board. The plane landed in Minsk, after which the deputy prime minister flew to Moscow from the Belarusian capital by Aeroflot.

    Putin supports Moldovan leader in his bid to develop ties with Russia

    President Dodon also thanked the Russian leader for the settlement of labor migration problems

    SOCHI, October 10./TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin hailed on Tuesday efforts by his Moldovan counterpart Igor Dodon towards normalizing Russian-Moldovan relations.

    "We highly appreciate your efforts to normalize Russian-Moldovan relations, we see that the process proceeds with difficulties, but we assume that both the people of Moldova and the people of the Russian Federation are interested in its positive result," the Russian leader said in opening remarks at talks with Igor Dodon.

    Putin also pledged that Russia will "certainly be building our economic relations in the future proceeding from the level of our political cooperation". "As of today, we want to support your sincere intention to restore and develop Russian-Moldovan relations," President Putin said.

    Putin reiterated Russia’s earlier decisions - "liberalization with regard to labor migrants, the opening of certain segments of the Russian market for products sensitive for the Moldovan economy".

    "I must say plainly that it’s not that this was done as an advance, this was done with an aim to support your efforts aimed at normalizing Russian-Moldovan relations," the Russian president told the Moldovan leader.

    "We expect very much that people will see and appreciate this, and will be supporting in every way those forces in your country that are aimed at further improving and building Russian-Moldovan relations," President Putin said.

    "We can say that we saw a lot of changes for the better (in Russian-Moldovan relations) in (the first) nine months (of the year), but problems also existed," President Igor Dodon said, for his part.

    Focusing on positive changes, he mentioned "a sizable growth in Moldovan goods’ exports on the Russian market - more than 17% in the first seven months of 2017, a many-fold growth on certain commodities," for example exports of table grapes to Russia growing 19 times, and apple exports growing threefold.

    President Dodon also thanked the Russian leader for the settlement of labor migration problems. "Dozens of thousands have got a possibility to solve their problems and be legalized, or once again go to the Russian Federation," he added.

    Focusing on problems marring bilateral ties, he said "not everybody likes the restart of our strategic partnership - there have been certain attempts from inside and outside the country to provoke the leadership of our countries into confrontation," Dodon said. Nevertheless, Moscow and Chisinau "continue normal contacts," he stated.

    The President of Moldova was deprived of the right to appoint a minister of defense

    The Constitutional Court of Moldova authorized the appointment of the Minister of Defense, bypassing the country's President, Igor Dodon, who is also the Supreme Commander-in-Chief.

    The decision was motivated by "Dodon's failure to fulfill his constitutional duties" when he twice rejected the candidacy of Yevgeny Sturza, proposed by Prime Minister Pavel Filip, as defense minister. According to the laws of Moldova, the head of the republic can reject the candidature only once. In case of re-nomination, the president is obliged to sign a decree on appointment, if the prime minister repeatedly nominates the same candidate.

    The court stated that Dodon "is in a state of temporary inability to perform his duties" and authorized to delegate his powers to the chairman of parliament or prime minister. Nevertheless, in each specific case they must request a decision of the Constitutional Court.

    On September 22, the deputies of the Moldovan parliament from the Liberal Party began collecting signatures under the impeachment bill of Igor Dodon. The leader of the Liberal Party, Mihai Ghimpu, noted that the bill was sent to all parliamentary factions, except for the faction of the Socialist Party. For consideration of the bill at a meeting of the parliament, 34 signatures of 101 deputies are needed.

    Sorry to say it, but these eastern European losers are still drinking the delusional koolaid about the EU.
    The EU is going down, while to these idiots it is a shining beacon of wealth and easy living. I say let
    the EU engorge itself with these losers and deal with their tantrums. Russia needs to keep away from
    them since they are the source of nothing but grief and have all sorts of syndromes that make them hate
    Russia.

    Since it is 2017 and not 1939, there is no need for control of territory around the border to create buffers.
    It's the missile era and tactical nuclear weapons render NATO's conventional forces deployment into an
    utter joke. If they so much as try to cross the Russian border they will be glassed. And the scumbags
    in Washington and Brussels are not going to escalate it into a full nuclear exchange since they have everything
    to lose. No, the only thing that NATO can do is to infiltrate Russia's borders with diversants and other agents.
    So Russia needs to start laying mines and barbed wire along its border with NATO and NATO wannabes members.
