The social base of this unionist party is currently in Moldova no more than a tenth of the population. And despite the fact that the number of its active supporters is steadily falling due to the general catastrophic decline in confidence in the ruling Alliance for European Integration, which includes this initially anti-state party, which exploits the word “freedom” in its name, but which has the ultimate goal of final surrender of the freedom and independence of the Moldovan people at the mercy of the rulers of the neighboring state - a member of the NATO military bloc.
Headed by the deputy of the Parliament Mihai Ghimpu and his nephew, the capital's mayor, Dorin Chirtoaca, is a curious political formation demonstrates the inimitable combination of archaic patriarchal crony began Carpatho-Balkan clan traditions with moribund ideas of Western liberalism in the spirit of the views of Zbigniew Brzezinski and the Baltic neo-Nazis. Being composed entirely of former Soviet citizens, former Soviet intellectuals, teachers, writers, poets, party and Komsomol activists, as well as their children and grandchildren, brought up now in the spirit of belligerent, belated and ridiculous anti-Sovietism mythological food.
The dogmas of the Liberal Party of Moldova originate in the Romanian nationalist historiography, as well as in the unthinkable fusion of the liberal democratic and national socialist traditions of Western Europe. The Romanian nation, according to these views, was not formed in the process of a long and contradictory chain historical events that culminated in the political unification of the Wallachian (Romanian) and Moldavian principalities in the second half of the XNUMXth century, but through the mystical union of the ancient Dacians with the Romans who defeated and enslaved them. All Eastern Romanesque peoples from Istria to Macedonia and from the Balkans to the Carpathians should be considered, regardless of their will, Romanians. "We are all Romanians, period!" - this is the favorite motto of “the president of all Romanians from everywhere” of the current president of Romania Traian Basescu, who unceremoniously arrogated to himself the right to interfere in the internal affairs of neighboring states, in whose territories those who consider themselves (or whom Romanian diplomacy considers) ethnic Romanians live. Naturally, all of them should be retrained according to Romanian textbooks that set out the foundations of Romanian "imperial" historiography. And this crafty historiography stigmatizes all ethnic groups, without which the ethnogenesis of Romanians (ancient Slavs, Polovtsians and other peoples) would in fact be unthinkable as “invaders”, “barbarians” and “newcomers” in the territories allegedly originally belonging to the ancestors of today's “Romanians from everywhere” (led by their "international head" Traian Basescu).
Neither for the Moldovans, nor for the representatives of other ethnic groups of the population of Moldova in such, if one may say so, “liberal” picture of the world there is no worthy place and cannot be. For the former, because, in the opinion of the “liberals,” their very existence on the planet is nonsense, for the latter, because they are despicable “invaders” and “aliens.”
According to these cave and militant "liberal" views, the main "world evil" on the planet Earth are "Russians" and their "Russian-speaking" allies - we put these words in quotes, because these generally accepted terms in world practice have in the eyes of Moldovan "liberals" -unionists completely unusual content. “Russians” are some demonic creatures, from time immemorial acting as enemies of “Romanians from everywhere”, and “Russian speakers” are their “henchmen”, starting with the Moldovans who speak Russian and recognize him the right of the language of international communication in Moldova (according to the existing in the country legislation), and ending with the Ukrainians, Gagauz, Bulgarians, Jews, Gypsies and other "alien". In the ideology of the "liberal" ethno-democrats, all of them, voluntarily or unwittingly, act as "agents of Moscow."
For an ethnic democrat from Moldova, “freedom” and “democracy” are concepts that are fully applicable only to those Moldovan citizens who can be attributed by the “liberals” themselves to the “Romanian nation”. As in slave-holding Athens: “democracy” only for “free”, i.e. only for the Athenians. Attached to all the rest - "alien" and slaves - it is unthinkable.
The highest achievement of “liberal” ethno-democratic thought in Moldova was the requirement to remove the Russian language as the language of the “newcomers” and “occupiers” from circulation in all spheres of state, public and economic life, from everyday life, the press, television, radio and even the Internet. This is the main idea of the bill №135 from 26 March 2013, “On language policy in the Republic of Moldova”, proposed by the deputy from the Liberal Party by a linguist professor (!) Anna Gutu and laying the legal foundations of ethnocracy and cultural-linguistic apartheid in the Republic of Moldova ...
Such a bill, if adopted, would mean, firstly, that the Russian language in the territory of the country would lose its current status as a language of international communication. The Russian and Russian-speaking population of Moldova will be significantly restricted in the right to free access to information and in the opportunities for learning in this language. And the first to suffer from this are ethnic Moldovans, as well as the economy of the republic as a whole, since Moldova receives about two-thirds (about two billion US dollars) of all foreign exchange earnings in its economy from transfers of citizens leaving for work to Russia.
Secondly, this completely and finally closes the way to the settlement of the Transnistrian problem, where the Russian language has a wide circulation and state status.
And finally, thirdly, the Russian-Moldovan relations, which are already going through not the best of times, with the adoption of this odious bill threaten to turn into new intractable problems in the diplomatic, economic and cultural fields.
It is not surprising that this cannibalistic pattern of “liberal” and “enlightened” lawmaking caused a wave of fair indignation and indignation in Moldova and beyond its borders. The profanation of Western European and world liberal-democratic thought reached its extreme expression, it seems, in Moldova, a country once famous for its ethno-cultural diversity and tolerance in international relations. And it happened during the time of the inglorious and incompetent reign of the Alliance for European Integration, jealously supported by the officials of the European Union.
It is from there, from Brussels, that we are constantly told about Moldova’s unprecedented “success story” in recent years on the path to “progress in reform”, in which Moldova, they say, “overtook” all the other “reforming” countries of Eastern Europe - Ukraine, Georgia, etc. And you will never get an answer to the question of how in the collapse of the financial, industrial, agricultural, social, medical and educational system of the country over the four years of the reign of the politically mediocre, anti-people "Alliance" you can see the "success story in ormirovanii "?
Not only are Moldovan citizens now being suffocated with exorbitant prices and tariffs, furiously increasing debts to the IMF, the World Bank and other international financial structures, an unprecedented rampant corruption and extortion by government officials, depressing unemployment and other charms of “liberal democracy” - citizens continue to humiliate with endless judicial injustices, intolerable pressure of ethnocracy and “ethno-democracy”, including infringement of their civil rights and freedoms in the sphere of culture language.
It would be completely naive to believe that all these arts of the “liberal-democratic” rulers of Moldova are unknown to the Brussels “European integrators”. However, it is not important for them - it is important not to allow Moldova under no circumstances to be included in the orbit of the Customs Union, but to remain a link of the “sanitary cordon” between the West and the East, stretched from the Baltic to the Black Sea. To achieve this goal, all means are good. Even such as the creation of a "linguistic apartheid" system that discriminates against the Russian and Russian-speaking population of the country, in which, according to the law, the Russian language is still the language of interethnic communication.
History decreed that it was thanks to the “Russian-speaking invaders” that the Moldavian ethnic tradition and the ancient statehood of the Moldavian people were revived from the ashes, gaining a new breath in the modern world.
In accordance with the Bucharest Treaty of 1812, the eastern territories of the once mighty Moldovan principality, which had fallen into disrepair, were alienated from the Ottoman Empire and annexed to Russia. In 1940, thanks to the very "invaders", these lands acquired a new state status. By that time, the Moldavian princedom in its Zaprut part had long since ceased to exist, having entered the newly formed Romanian state in the second half of the 19th century.
Joseph Stalin was well aware that the only way to block the claims of the royal Romania to the lands of the former Russian Bessarabian province is to recognize the Moldovans' historical rights to their national and state existence. As a result, Moldova today has internationally recognized state status, membership in the UN and other international organizations.
It was from 1812 that the intensive development of the Moldavian region began not only in economic, technical and cultural relations, but also, what is most striking, in relation to the demographic. In two centuries of “occupation”, the population of the region grew from one hundred twenty thousand people to more than four million (of which more than two thirds are ethnic Moldovans). And the colossal role in this rapid development belonged to the “Russian-speaking invaders”. This became especially noticeable in the era of the “totalitarian Soviet regime”, when Moldova laid solid foundations of modern industry, agriculture, energy, transport communications, social welfare and health care systems, higher and secondary education, science and culture, modern town planning and much more. that is now partly destroyed, partly continues to be destroyed by the will of the "liberal" and "democratic" rulers of Moldova.
Naturally, the Russian language has acquired in its new conditions its legal status of the language of international communication for all ethnic groups and cultures inhabiting the country. Many Moldovans received education in leading universities of the USSR, and many outstanding specialists, engineers, doctors and teachers from other Soviet republics laid in Moldova the solid foundations of modern services, industries, and scientific research.
And despite all the imbalances in the functioning of the Moldavian language in the Moldavian SSR, the number of first-class Moldovan schools in rural and urban areas grew steadily, as did the number of Moldovans in the ranks of industrial and agricultural workers, in the ranks of the intelligentsia, among state and administrative workers and party organs. And all this is primarily due to the development of the Russian language as the language of international communication throughout the territory of a huge Soviet state.
Now, home-grown Moldavian “liberals” and unionists blame the “Russian-speaking invaders”, the omnipresent “hand of Moscow” and the Russian language in all the misfortunes and sins of their incompetent and destructive government, trying by any legal and illegal means not only to limit its use, but also to eliminate it altogether him from public and state life. This is how the scandalous and explosive draft law No. XXUMX “On language policy in the Republic of Moldova” mentioned above, put forward by a deputy from the “liberals” Anna Gutu and providing for truly draconian measures against the Russian language.
Some "beautiful-minded" Moldovan citizens naively believe that this sample of linguistic obscurantism has no chance of being adopted in the parliament of "pro-European" Moldova. For the reason that, being guided by vested electoral interests, being interested in attracting Russian-speaking voters, the leaders of other ruling parties from the half-ruined "Alliance for European Integration" will not allow the support of an odious bill when voting in parliament. Is not it?
Let us descend from heaven to the sinful land of Moldova and take a look at the prospects for adopting a draconian bill from the point of view of the real political situation in a country undergoing a sharp governmental crisis.
Firstly, in the camp of the Moldovan "liberals", from whose parliamentary votes the fate of the next government essentially depends, there was a fraught with far-reaching consequences. And this means that the “schismatics”, who betrayed the “main liberal of the country” Mihai Ghimpu, who absolutely refused to support the new government of Vlad Filat, would require serious concessions from the leaders of the other “allied parties” in all areas of political and administrative activity.
Secondly, given that these “liberal dissenters” were headed by that same mistress of linguists Anna Gutsu, who became famous for his uncompromisingly Russophobic views, it is natural to expect that in favor of the votes of her “dissenters” in parliament, cast in favor of the new government cabinet, she would demand support for her odious bill. And this can already give rise to very serious problems not only in parliament, but also in the country as a whole, especially in relations with Transnistria. Why is it so important for Mrs. Gutsu and her "schismatics"? Not so much, we dare to assure, because of their doctrinal and other “convictions”, but for a very simple reason: if they betray their benefactor to Ghimpu and being expelled from his “liberal” party, they will urgently need the support of precisely that part of the Russophobic and unionist electorate "Liberals", which recently was unhappy with the "too soft" and even "comprador", in their opinion, the policy of its leader.
Moreover, from now on, for Mrs. Gutu, the “pushing” of this Russophobic language project becomes a matter of honor in her attempts to take a place on the country's political Olympus by serving her Romanian and Western European patrons. Moreover, the angry and devoted to her leader of the “liberals” Mihai Ghimpu accused Madame Gutsu no more and no less than the fact that the proverbial “hand of Moscow” (!) Acts from behind her. And if such a charge seems delusional and paranoid to any sensible person, then for preachers of cave-like Russophobia and unionism in Moldova, all this looks quite plausible and even worthy of attention.
Difficult times are coming for the fate of the Russian language in Moldova, when maximum mobilization of the Civil Congress of Moldova is needed, bringing together all the people of goodwill from different nationalities, for whom the struggle for civil rights and freedoms is not an empty phrase. The Moldovan “European integrators” and their foreign patrons went too far in their destructive actions ...
