Russia imposes "Transnistrization" scheme on Ukraine

By Irina Severin | UAObserver 

The victory of the pro-Moscow candidate Igor Dodon in the Presidential election in Moldova is not only the EU's loss of the popularity contest to Russia but a sign of a complete failure of the EU policy in the region.

The EU loses its position despite the fact that it not only puts massive amounts of the aid to the country but pays a significant part of its budget. However, the public either does not know about this or believes that this is a bribing of Moldovan authorities by the EU bureaucrats as Russian propaganda sells this.
During the last decade, Moscow runs a relentless disinformation campaign in Moldova, but there are no signs of informing the public about EU assistance neither by the EU nor by the Moldovan authorities.
