Moldova cannot be seated on two chairs and cannot fit in two Unions, one of them being window dressing

The idea of creating a Eurasian Union around Moscow has not gone unnoticed in Chisinau, the Communist Party coming soon to support this initiative.

IDIS Bulletin: "Moldovan citizens who got in the EU through the backdoor" represents merely an orchestrated campaign by those who don't want the EU-Moldova reapproachment

There are more obvious signs that the series of articles condemning the - goodwill" of Romania to facilitate the reacquisition of Romanian citizenship represents a campaign orchestrated by external forces that do not tolerate the current governments rapprochement with the West. Undoubtedly, these articles are written in a sensational manner, their authors being poorly informed about the realities in Moldova and Romania. Referring to the arguments of those who deplore the so-called - goodwill" of Bucharest are false: - It is said that Romania does not comply with EU legislation on the granting of citizenship and that Moldovans will invade Europe which will increase crime in the member states, which is not corresponding to the existent situation. Romania is not a special case in the European context. Other countries are sinning similarly. The 2009 Eurostat Yearbook, for example, shows that in 2006, nearly 700,000 people acquired European citizenship, of which over 426,000 have been offered by Britain, France and Germany.

IDIS Bulletin: Visa liberalization with the UE is mostly a technical than a political process

The visa liberalization with the EU represents an accomplishable mission for Moldova, and besides the political and diplomatic aspect, involves significant technical efforts.
