New US Democratic Approach in Moldova: Unite and Conquer

23
In early April, a week of NATO took place in Moldova: exhibitions, round tables, discussion clubs. Aggressive propaganda machine worked for the glory, including with the students. But it cannot be said that all Moldovan youth have landed in the network of brave preachers from NATO. The Russian Youth League of Moldova, united with the Patriots of Moldova Party, on April 9 organized a rally outside the NATO Information and Documentation Center in Chisinau.


“Last week was the propaganda of how skillfully and subtly NATO troops sow death and destruction around the world under the guise of help,” said LRM activist Anna Pochtar at the rally.

New US Democratic Approach in Moldova: Unite and Conquer


The participants of the action expressed their concern about the increasingly active presence of an aggressive military-political alliance in Moldova. The demonstrators chanted slogans: “Moldova without NATO”, “NATO - we don’t need”, “Moldova is a peaceful country, Moldova isn’t needed a war”, “Moldova is a neutral country” (IA "REGNUM").

Moldova really has the status of a neutral country, which, by the way, NATO ... supports: "The North Atlantic Alliance maintains the neutral status of Moldova," NATO Deputy Secretary General Claudio Bisongiero said during a meeting with Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova Vlad Filat in Brussels, informs IA "News-Moldova "(news.point.md).

A typical case of a policy of double standards, apparently referring to both NATO and the government and parliament of Moldova. NATO has long been chosen by this country. For example, last year the North Atlantic Alliance embarked on pesticide destruction on its territory.

And where is NATO, there, as is known, is America. Otherwise, why would you spend a “week,” for example, not in Turkey? Indeed, because of this, the 60 anniversary of the accession of Turkey to the alliance of Turkey was celebrated in Chisinau! The Turkish ambassador to Moldova, Kartal, even gave a lecture on this very sixtieth anniversary.

On the eve of the NATO week, at the end of March, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Defense Celeste Wallander told the Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova Vladimir Filat that the United States is ready to help Moldova in strengthening the capacity of the country's armed forces and in training military specialists. The main thing here is not in the proposed assistance - the amount of assistance to Moldova from the United States has always been relatively modest in comparison with the help of many other countries, but in the fact that America is very interested in the "territorial integrity" of the republic.

“A separate topic of discussion was the problem of resolving the Moldovan-Transdniestrian conflict. In this context, Filat informed the guest about the latest developments in this direction. “Today in Tiraspol I once again meet with Yevgeny Shevchuk, this will be the first meeting to be held without intermediaries in the process. The issues we are discussing at this stage relate to solving the problems of the daily lives of citizens, including the free movement of people and cargo transportation by rail, ”the Prime Minister specified. The head of the Cabinet of Ministers noted that all the efforts of the Moldovan government are aimed at the realization of the main goal - “reunification of the country”.

In turn, Celeste Wallander declared Washington’s full support for the position of the Moldovan government regarding the consideration of the “Transnistrian problem” and settlement mechanisms based on the principles of “territorial integrity” and the sovereignty of the Republic of Moldova ”(IA "REGNUM").

So, continuous friendly "settlement", up to "reunification".

How to explain the increased activity of America in Moldova? Why did the United States attend to the consolidation of democracy in Moldova, for which, by the way, has long been a member of the WTO, the Jackson-Vanik amendment is still in effect? However, Washington may cancel this restrictive measure at any time. Perhaps, it is also needed in order to “consolidate” the new friendly relations of the two countries at an opportunity. A whip, and at the same time a carrot: two in one.

With American goals and objectives in Moldova, everything is very simple. As always: democracy, peace on the planet and the total friendship of nations, sealed by NATO fraternal ties.

The USA pursues the following goals in Moldova: 1) weakening of the republic’s ties with the Russian Federation along with the liquidation of the last “island of communism” - Transnistria; 2) the early incorporation of the “reunited” country into the NATO bloc; 3) the subsequent strengthening of the position of the "world hegemon" in the connected post-Soviet region.

The United States is also interested in the Moldovan-Romanian question about the Anschluss, which is actively promoted by Romanian politicians. It is known that it was this “issue” that in 1992 was caused by the breakaway from Moldova of Transnistria (Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic), during which Romania took the side of Moldova.

“After the end of hostilities up to 2000, Moldova’s foreign policy strategy, however, became Moldovanism - the movement for Moldovan statehood independent of Romania. 29 July 1994, the newly adopted Constitution of the Republic of Moldova approved the Moldovan language as the state, and in October 1994, the first independent population census took place - excluding Transnistria, 3,4 million people lived in the republic. The estimated number of Transnistrians was 0,5 million. In 1994, after the referendum, Moldova entered the CIS. At the end of 1994, the Gagauz autonomy appeared in the Republic of Moldova.

In 1998 — 2000 ... Romania became the second most important trading partner of Moldova and, in particular, connected it to its own power grid ”(memoid).

In the foreseeable future, the United States is unlikely to support the idea of ​​uniting Romania and Moldova. The “reunification” of Moldova and Transdniestria, approved by the States and necessary for them to weaken Russia and strengthen their own influence in the post-Soviet space, would have nothing in common with such Anschluss, since the Romanians of Transnistria have not historically considered their own. In addition, the Anschluss is not an idea that can be served under the “reunion” sauce. Therefore, the States declare support for the "territorial integrity" of Moldova, and not the "territorial integrity" of Romania.

The “reunification” of Moldova with Transnistria with American assistance (for which Chisinau would become the eternal debtor of Washington) could be an ideal option for translating America’s hegemonic aspirations. William Moser, not without reason, says: “In particular, the current US ambassador to Chisinau, William Moser, in his speech in the Senate during the approval procedure for the post, noted the following:“ The United States provides support to Moldova through various programs in order to create modern, sustainable armed forces ... that can work together with Euro-Atlantic structures. " Further, the ambassador said that US assistance is aimed at “strengthening Moldova’s ability to conduct operations to achieve peace and stability in support of multinational coalitions” (IA "REGNUM", from the report of Sergey Mikhailov, a senior researcher at the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies (RISI), made at the international conference “Bessarabia’s joining Russia in light of the centuries-old Moldovan-Russian-Ukrainian cooperation”, 2-4 on April 2012, Vadul-lui-Vodă, Moldova).

“Support for multinational coalitions” is a geopolitical innovation of the United States. You can’t say that in Yugoslavia, under the influence of US aid, a “multinational coalition” turned out ...

The work of the United States and NATO in the Moldovan direction is already underway. 27 March, being in Brussels, Moldovan Prime Minister Vlad Filat addressed some interesting requests to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. “Filat asked NATO about special support for Moldova, namely: to give Moldova the same privileged status in relations with NATO, which Georgia has, to recognize the Joint Council of the Governments of Romania and Moldova as a special partner of NATO, to put pressure on the special representative of the President of Russia in Transnistria, Dmitry Rogozin so that he “did not interfere in the internal affairs of Moldova” (IA "REGNUM").

Why Moldova, speaking with the United States, is equal to Georgia? Why? Why, Georgia receives an average of $ 0,5 billion a year in aid from America, while Moldova receives a little more than $ 20 million. It's a shame! So I want the government of Moldova will be useful to the US government. For that, Chisinau needs “NATO weeks”, and it is for this that the talk about the alteration of the constitution is being conducted in Moldova today.

In general, in one fell swoop, three birds with one stone are killed: both Russia - to the side, and money in the form of help - more, and NATO - to the republic. You never know there is a neutral country! .. Under the "special status" of the new president, without further ado, and rewrite the constitution. “The new President of Moldova, Nicolae Timofti, in his speech at the Parliament declared that he would stand for amending the Constitution of the country, with a view to its improvement. The President stresses that the current Constitution requires many amendments ”("Moldinfo").

Here is the main thesis of the manager Timofti: “Big countries are engaged in big politics. Moldova should pursue a sensible policy, as it has done in recent years ”(the same source).

That's right. The “reasonable policy” for small Moldova is to attach it to the brotherly European wing of NATO. That is why the United States endorses the idea of ​​Moldova joining the EU and is doing all it can to help. For the sake of such a thing, they even easily forget about the bureaucratic amendment of the Jackson-Vanik.

“Also, the United States is unequivocally in favor of Moldova’s accession to the European Union, probably more strongly than the majority of the EU members themselves. First, Washington realizes that, as in other cases with the CEE countries, joining the EU will inevitably be a guarantee that Moldova’s economic and political ties with Russia will never reach a higher level, but will even more weaken compared to the current one. In addition, one should not forget about the economic competition of the US itself with the EU, and that the entry of new members into the European Union would further increase the financial burden on Brussels and Berlin. At the same time, among American politicians there is an understanding that the prospect of Moldova joining the European Union is very remote. In particular, in June 2011, the report of the research service of the US Congress noted that "the EU is unlikely to accept Moldova as a candidate in the foreseeable future, because of its poverty, as well as its own internal problems of the EU."

Based on the stated task of incorporating Moldova into Euro-Atlantic structures, the United States is also building its approach to the issue of conflict with Transnistria. Obviously, the American leadership would like to resolve this issue not under any conditions, but only in such a way that, as a result, Chisinau’s Euro-Atlantic orientation would not be under threat ... ”(IA "REGNUM", from the report of Sergei Mikhailov).

As a result, America is simultaneously pursuing approaches from two "wings": cooperation with NATO and the "multinational coalition." And all this is against the background of the quiet pushing of the republic in the EU. First we take NATO, then we give financial assistance from a poor country to average, and you will be happy in the EU, and NATO will be happy in the form of new military bases on the territory of a “neutral” country with a constitution rewritten under the dictation of the Alliance and Washington.

Moldovan quote to the topic:

“If Moldova wanted to join NATO, it would have to fulfill a number of conditions, including the settlement of the Transnistrian conflict,” said the director of the NATO Information and Documentation Center, Vitaly Grosu, in an interview with Infotag.

Also, according to Mr. Grosu, “the Republic of Moldova should act on the basis of national interests, without looking back at Russia” ("Kommersant.md").

Yes, only Russia NATO-American Moldova is hardly needed. First, a week of NATO in Ukraine, then in Moldova ... Therefore, it is quite possible that Washington will help Chisinau, and Moscow - to help Tiraspol. At least, Moldovans are already thinking about this topic:

“It is unlikely that Russia will take the path of recognizing Transnistrian statehood, and most likely it will turn the regions of the left bank of the Dniester into a zone of stability and well-being. So says political analyst and journalist Arkady Gerasim, writes Tribuna. He noted that the rate of this scenario can be the fact that right-bank citizens of the Republic of Moldova, they say, must believe that it is possible to live well if you have such a strong ally as the Russian Federation. “In other words, an attempt will be made to“ transnistrianize ”the Republic of Moldova,” says Arkady Gerasim. In his opinion, Russia will no longer follow the path of gross interference in its policy towards the Republic of Moldova, since this could untie Chisinau’s hands for closer rapprochement with Romania, the European Union and NATO ”(IA "REGNUM").

The forecast, of course, looks a little fantastic, but in this situation poor Moldova, having forgotten about the interests of the United States, will wish to unite with rich Transnistria.

    Very cool, in fact, the final forecast in the article looks. Yes, apparently, the time has come to act not with a whip, but with a carrot. What is needed is not a stereotypical approach, and that is probably why Rogozin was outfitted there. We will wait, as they say ... Article - I liked it

        Sasha, the government, if it does not know where it will rush, then, rather, not from the fact that it does not know how to do it, but from the fact that they start to hit from all sides. Of course, to argue that someone does not know something is convenient. And for the occasion - the gingerbread, the thoughtless use of the carrot in today's realities, the method is no longer an 100% method and it is recommended to use it when the gingerbread has already been tasted and become dependent on your treat. Today's Europe with an American gingerbread in its teeth is proof of this. And now the time has come for the Europeans, going to meet with the Uses, to stock up on Vaseline.

        At a meeting on March 27 in Brussels with the NATO leadership, Moldovan Prime Minister Vlad Filat made a number of requests to the Alliance Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. This was reported to a REGNUM news agency by a diplomatic source in Chisinau. He specified that Filat asked NATO for special support for Moldova, namely: to provide Moldova with the same privileged status in relations with NATO that Georgia has, recognize the Joint Council of Governments of Romania and Moldova as a special partner of NATO, to put pressure on the special envoy of the President of Russia in Transnistria, Dmitry Rogozin, so that he "does not interfere in the internal affairs of Moldova."

    I was especially intrigued by the following mantras of cunningly crafted thugs from Tan and their lackeys from Moldova: “The head of the cabinet noted that all the efforts of the Moldovan government are aimed at realizing the main goal -“ reunification of the country ”...“ based on the principles of “territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Moldova” .
    It would be necessary for them to demand consistency in their principles:
    - if they are for the right of peoples to self-determination, then they must recognize this right also for the Transnistrians;
    - if they suddenly decided to return to the principle of territorial integrity, then it is necessary to solve the problem of restoring the integrity not of Moldova, but of the Soviet Union as a whole, for which at least 70% of the country's population voted in due time, and to solve the integrity problem within the Union Moldavian Republic.
    And then they always have a nipple approach to all problems: in one direction - blow, and in the other - ... you will not wait.

      It is not bad that Ukraine was in our allies, but there are few hopes, NATO attracts them, by the way, as well as Moldova promises support for military programs, the same stability in cooperation with NATO.

    << the ambassador (USA) clarifies that American assistance is aimed at “strengthening Moldova’s ability to conduct peace and stability operations in support of multinational coalitions” >>
    It seems that our NATO partners have embarked on the preparations for yet another “peace enforcement” operation, such as AUGUST-2008. Russia will have a hard time due to the lack of a border with Transnistria and the “foggy” policy of Ukraine, which is also playing the NATO card! But we cannot be defeated in this clash with NATO, there IS NEVER ANYTHING to retreat behind MOSCOW!

    I want to say that the plans for Moldova’s entry into NATO are largely ephemeral.
    The Moldovan authorities are political impotent people all laugh at them here. In addition to Transnistria, there is also Gagauzia in the south, where 100% of the population speaks Russian and gravitates to Russia and there are also northern cities with a Russian-speaking population. Plus, the last couple of months there has been a sharp activation of Russian-speaking parties and movements throughout the country with the help of Russia. So, joining NATO is fraught with big problems for the state in Moldova and is unlikely to threaten in the near future, although the danger certainly remains.
    And even if this happens, then at the slightest danger this US ally will run over to our side, however, like Romania. More to them such allies. laughing

      Big problems, but not big but catastrophic. Moldova complains about America, which, they say, Georgia is half a milliard, and to us some miserable about 20 miles. America that selflessly gives denyuzhku? Whatever it is, at first it will be entangled in debt, like a spider a fly, then, as if for a concession to repay a debt, it will start twisting cords from Moldova, solely for its own interests.

    That UKRNATO is still bearable, GEORGIANS in NATO are ridiculous, BUT bearable!
    But Muldovan in NATO, this is a shame!

    Somehow I was resting on the sea, near Vladivostok, and literally 50 meters away from me, Moldovans were resting, so they couldn’t even put up the tent safely, which is bold, in 5 minutes my 10 summer son puts up. Further more, they began to demand money from them for a place, they, like real moles, refused to pay! The next day they tried the wheels on their old priest Muscovite. All Russians look and think where they will take 4 bnana? Nefig they drove down.
