Yet in Moldova, Russia is proving quite capable of losing an ally without western help. Four years ago, Moldova’s Communist Party won election by promising pro Russian policies, including eventual union with Russia and Belarus. Now they are chasing re election in March by promising pro western policies, including integration with the European Union. They changed course because even they Air Jordan Women Size could not stomach Russia’s strategy of keeping Moldova divided and weak.
If there was any hope for pro Russia factions before the governments about face, Romanian Ukrainian joint action would torpedo it
A better and more open government in Moldova will deserve a lot more international help, starting with the neighbours. Romania is already offering diplomatic support. Ukraine could offer vital practical help. Transdniestria’s smugglers and arms salesmen the backbone of the economy, along with a big KOBE 9 Ukrainian owned steelworks trade through Ukraine, especially via Odessa.

The now anti Russian Communist Party decides on an election stunt: withdrawing all twelve soldiers from Iraq.
A group of 12 Moldovan minesweepers returned from Iraq Thursday, ending a six month deployment in the US led coalition forces, defense officials said here.

Europe worries about another “Kaliningrad,” named after the Russian Baltic State spiraling into misery. Kaliningrad is surrounded by the EU already, and talk of geographical determinism certainly doesn’t hurt Europe’s case.
If Moldova is to achieve deep and irreversible change, however, the EU must offer it a clear path towards eventual membership. It has done this for the Balkan countries, which are no more European and no less troubled than Moldova. Its reluctance to talk of membership for Ukraine looks short sighted: when Ukraine joins the queue, geography will dictate giving a place to Moldova too. The sooner the process is started, the less the danger of either country wobbling off course.
This assumes that the Transdniestrian problem will, in effect, solve itself, as the future benefits of EU integration outweigh those of separatism. But Russia will be a big obstacle. At worst, it might even step up its military presence in Transdniestria, to make a second Kaliningrad: a Russian fortress in south east Europe. The best counter strategy would be to confront the Russians openly over what they are protecting in Transdniestria: a big, ugly smuggling racket, with a piece of land attached. Even Russia may not want to spend too much political capital in such a cause.
