Moldovan Government Rides Roughshod Over National Laws
September 9, 2017

A total of 57 Moldovan servicemen have arrived in Ukraine to take part in NATO exercise Rapid Trident starting this week. The troops were sent according to a government’s decree, despite the fact that President Igor Dodon, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Force, had vetoed the move. The president has twice prohibited the military to participate in the exercise. He has accused the government of violating the law on state security. The pro-Western government led by Prime Minister Pavel Filip says the participation in the exercise will contribute to the soldiers' better training for the KFOR mission in Kosovo.

Moldova to Become Foothold for US Military
August 10, 2017

The former Soviet republic of Moldova may actually become yet another foothold for the US military in Europe.

May 30, 2015

As has been reported, last April the Monitoring Committee met during the spring session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.  A special subcommittee was created at that meeting – the Ad hoc Sub-Committee on Conflicts between Member States of the Council of Europe.  This new entity, which will be directly responsible for looking into so-called «frozen conflicts» in the former Soviet Union, should have official status and begin its work in June.  It met for the first time in Paris on May 27…

NATO Eyes Transnistria
September 14, 2014

President Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry attempted to craft a so-called "coalition of the willing" to help the United States fight the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in both Iraq and Syria. Obama was only able to enlist the support of the fragile new Iraqi government, the battered Kurdistan Regional Government in northern Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. The latter "partner," Saudi Arabia, has been ISIL's main benefactor. Obama also foolishly said he wanted to arm the "Free Syrian Army," even though many of its original members joined ranks with ISIL and its ally, the Al Nusra Front after being trained and armed by CIA and U.S. military teams in Jordan and Turkey…
