Video preview of this report:
I confess, in the title I initially wanted to call Dodon ‘The Trump of E. Europe.’ In many ways he is like Trump: he was brought to power by people’s vote, despite powers that be who were in staunch opposition; he tries to implement change in direct opposition to the parliament and elites, not to mention the US and EU. But he also doesn’t act like Trump in many ways. Where there is conflict he seeks peaceful resolution and reconciliation, where there is a problem he personally tries to find a good compromise and mutually profitable solution. He doesn’t start wars, he loves Russia and is proud of having been born in the USSR; he is tough on the West and he wants Moldova to join Eurasian Union.
Unlike Trump, and much like Putin, he tends to surprise on the upside. He does things beyond what anyone expects of him, and this is the true mark of a leader.
In many ways, such as desire for cooperation instead of confrontation, peaceful tendencies and pragmatic approach, working quietly and steadily on the country’s future, despite having to withstand constant threats and opposition from oligarchy and elites, current president of Moldova Igor Dodon reminds me of Putin in the beginning of his tenure as Russia’s president.
MOLDOVA ELECTIONS Lada Ray Feb 11, 2019 Update
Parliamentary elections in Moldova sneaked up quietly. They take place on February 24, 2019 and they are more important than most realize. These elections will essentially decide which way Moldova will turn in the next few years, towards Russia or the West.
This map shows Moldova (or Moldavia). The long sliver on the left is the breakaway, pro-Russian and Russian-supported Pridnestrovie (Transnistria), which was the only industrialized area of the Moldavian SSR. Near the bottom is Gagauzia, the autonomous republic within Moldova, populated with Russian Orthodox Turkic language people. Gagauzia has its separate special relationship with Russia, and it proclaimed that it will secede and join Russia if Moldova is absorbed by Romania/EU. Gagauzia remains a balancing factor within Moldova, not allowing it to become absorbed by Romania.
Despite a small size and economic weakness of Moldova, its super-important geopolitical position between Russian Pridnestrovie, Ukraine and Romania/Balkans makes Moldova a big prize, true harbinger of change and a swing state bar none! The Moldavian choice may influence Ukraine, post-Soviet Space, the Balkans and Europe! At the very minimum it will influence the Russian-leaning Odessa and Southeast of Ukraine. For Russia, Moldova suddenly became an important country, as relations with Ukraine soured. How important is evident from the number of times in the past couple of years Moldova’s President Dodon has been in Moscow, meeting with Putin, Medvedev, Gazprom’s Alexey Miller, and participating in international forums at Russian government’s invitation.
Dodon is known not only for his firm desire for Moldova to become a part of the Customs Union with Russia through Eurasian Union, but also for his balanced, pragmatic and practical approach to Moldova’s affairs. He wants Moldova to be a bridge between EU and Russia, but rejects Euro-integration, saying that no one needs Moldovan agricultural produce in Europe, where there is an overabundance of its own cheese, wine, grapes, plums and apples. Russia is Moldova’s traditional market, which was developed through centuries of living and working together. This is in addition to the natural affinity through Orthodox Church, common history, Russian culture and language. Out of over 3 million country’s citizens, anywhere between 700,000 and 1 million live and work in Russia. Moldova adds billions of dollars annually to its GDP through the money sent back from Russia by migrant workers.

According to the Russian tradition:
Happy Old New Year, and wishing everyone much prosperity & abundance in 2017!
The nostalgic and fun holiday, called The Old New Year, is celebrated on January 13-14 in all of the Russian World.
The traditions for this cool holiday include a very generous table, brimming with traditional Russian foods, such as large, round Russian bliny served with butter, honey, various preserves and caviar, as well as sweets, fruits and Russian tea from the colorful samovar. Groups of well-wishers, dressed in traditional Russian outfits, walk around their village or neighborhood and throw seeds, beans or grains mixed with money, to wish their neighbors and friends prosperity and abundance. This is called ‘Schedrikha’ : the abundance sharing ritual.
It’s also traditional to have sled snow rides, the pinnacle of which are the Russian troika rides: troika means three horses riding as one. People also have snow fights, build snow men and snow or ice terema (castles).
After the Schedrikha ritual another ritual would be performed: burning a stack of hay, which symbolizes burning away any old and hamful energy. As the hay burns, Russians join hands and dance around the fire in the traditional Russian Khorovod. Then, the bravest leap over the burning hay. This seals the ritual, symbolizing the surmounting of any life’s difficulties.
This video is from Tiraspol, Pridnestrovie, where traditions are alive and well. Some of the customs, table and Russian attire start at 0:10 and continue at 0:40.
Pridnestrovie (often referred to in the West as Transnistria) is the breakaway republic of the former Moldavia, which proclaimed its intention to join Russia.
Incidentally, my predictions about Moldova changing directions towards Russia and away from the West, are coming true.
I explain a lot about Moldova and Pridnestrovie in this 2014 video on my YT channel:

FREE Part 1 of Lada Ray’s newest ESR11, jam-packed with rare & important intel, on YouTube!
Part 1 of Earth Shift Report 11: THE IMPORTANCE of 2016 RUSSIAN ELECTIONS is posted and can be watched free on YouTube. Part 1 length is 1 hour 17 minutes and it is accompanied with a large number of pics and diagrams to enrich your listening experience.
In Part 1 we begin with a discussion of the hottest global events of late, which one way or another are closely related to 2016 Russian Elections of September 18, as well as to the upcoming US Presidential Elections in November 2016.
If you want to know Lada Ray’s unique take on Russian Elections, Putin, United Russia, a conspiracy that was planned after elections and how it failed; if you want Lada’s views on latest global events listed below, please order the complete ESR11 HERE.
In FREE Part 1 we discuss the following:
Latest events in Syria, including the US coalition bombing of Syrian army positions and killing over 60 people, as well as Kerry/Lavrov Syria talks and UN clashes. Lada will give her prediction on whether there will ever be a direct military confrontation between US and Russia.
Lada Ray’s original take on what is going on among US elites (Kerry, State Dept, Pentagon, CIA, FBI), why there is so much flip-flopping and inconsistency and how all this is connected with the developing Earth Shift and the crash of the US Empire.
Ukraine (what can we do without it!). How Russian voters were prevented from voting in Ukraine and the ‘funny way’ in which it backfired. What is happening with gas and coal and how Ukraine will survive this winter. How long has Poroshenko got.
Contrast with Ukraine: how Russian Elections took place in Germany and New Zealand.
Breakaway Pridnestrovie (aka, PMR, Transnistria) announces its intent to join Russia. Can the Crimea precedent help and how PMR is different from Crimea or Donbass. How Russian Elections took place in Pridnestrovie. PMR president Evgeny Shevchuk and upcoming elections. The new oligarchic structure financed from abroad: Sheriff. Why Pridnestrovie citizens dream about being re-united with Russia: how Shevchuk is expected to win running on the platform of re-unification with Russia and cracking down on Sheriff.
(I am intimately familiar with Pridnestrovie. For all about Pridnestrovie, its history, people, culture and politics read ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT and watch my free video report on Lada Ray YT Channel: Pridnestrovie vs Moldova: Eurasian Union vs EU (LadaRayLive 2).)
Russian Elections overview: main numbers, parties, who won, who lost and what to expect in the future. Russian women being elected and appointed to top posts more than ever before (new Elections Chief Ella Pamfilova, Crimea’s Chief Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya, etc.). The most transparent and technologically advanced elections ever. Why pro-West parties had a crushing loss, why United Russia won, and more.

PART 2 is all about Russian Elections 2016, including the overview of main 4 parties, plus 10 other small parties (altogether Russia has 77 registered parties), their platforms and how United Russia won back the constitutional majority. We’ll talk in detail how more and more women are elected, why pro-West ‘neo-liberal’ parties received almost zero votes. How the 4 main parties fared and why.
Elections percentages, constitutional majority and seat distribution. Kadyrov and Chechnya – why turnout of 84% was the highest there.
How these Duma Elections will influence 2018 Russian Presidential Elections. Why they are crucial for Russia’s turnaround and future development (anticipated firings among pro-West parts of Russian Govt; Constitution reform; nationalization of the Ruble).
Rolling back history: lessons of the 2011 Russian Duma Elections, the near coup on Bolotnaya Square and how Russian society got mobilized around Putin. Putin’s surprise win in 2012 (not so surprising: if you recall, back in 2011-12 I predicted the exact percentage with which he won). How anti-Putin Bolotnaya protest electrified pro-Putin patriotic movement in Russia: 300,000 Poklonnaya Gora rally (Starikov, Fedorov). Why there is presently a fight between patriotic parties and organizations.
How United Russia learned its lesson and what it did differently this time.
Will Russian Duma Elections influence US Presidential Elections and how?
Last but not least! The explosive ADDENDUM will talk about the recent arrest of the police colonel Zakharchenko (not to be confused with the Head of DNR Alexandr Zakharchenko) on charges of corruption. In his possession was found a stash of 8bln rubles and 1.5 tons (in weight) of US dollars. What is not being said and what this colossal cash stash was planned to be used for. What was being planned after September 18, Ukraine junta and USA’s role in that failed plan.

100.0% Reporting Votes
Remain a member of the European Union
Leave the European Union
I think this is an awesome result and I congratulate the British people on this achievement!
The result, as I pointed out in ESR12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU, could be worse based on the collective unconscious I’ve tapped into, which displayed the underlying energetic confusion and a strong potentiality for vote manipulation. I still think (per my ESR12 thoughts) that completely unmanipulated, the BREXIT vote should have achieved 58% or better result TO LEAVE. That said, the people of the UK have an excellent reason to celebrate.
And David Cameron resigned! That alone is a great result. Truly, no one could be worse than him, although how much better can it get if the next PM is from the same party? In truth, just like the US, the UK requires a complete, 100% overhaul of its political system. More on Cameron, Boris Johnson, Nigel Farange, Merkel, Marine le Pen and Trump in ESR12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU.
However, as you see, the vote is very close. I spoke about it in ESR12, explaining what this would mean.
I realize how exhilarated everyone is with the victory, albeit a very close one. Please forgive me for raining on anyone’s parade, however, my ESR12 prediction about the general timeline of the EU and UK remains largely unchanged.
Obama and US + Merkel and Brussels will try to do what they can to delay BREXIT and to keep UK tied to the EU. At least until after Russian Duma elections in September 2016 and until after US elections in November 2016. If they fail at that, it will greatly boost Trump’s chances and it will also add more support to Russia and Putin.
They know this very well, but it’s encouraging to see that the EU people are finally awakening.
That said, the referendum result itself is a HUGE blow to Obama, Hillary Clinton and Merkel. It is a great boost for Trump, and Trump will try to capitalize on it, while Obama/US establishement/EU will try to do everything to sabotage and delay the implementation of BREXIT.
The polarization of the Western society has reached its peak, which is normal for the times of great change. We’ll see who wins the battle in the near term.
The recent successes of the alternative parties in Italy, France and Austria, various EU revolts, the Dutch referendum and the YUKOS Dutch court decision in Russia’s favor all point to the fact that US and subservient to it EU elites are losing the battle. This in itself is excellent news and we’ll talk about it below. I call the gradual change this brings the rickety chair effect. The EU revolts, the effect in question and where all this will eventually lead are discussed in detail in ESR12.
Again, please forgive my caution and extreme conservatism, with a modicum of skepticism, when it comes to assessing the future of the West. Just consider for a moment how close the vote result has been: 48.1% vs. 51.9%. There is a danger that this close result will be used to try to delay BREXIT, or to make a covert deal which would make it look on the surface as if UK has left, yet the country would still likely be tied to the EU in secret.
I still see a lot of confusion and fights inside the UK going forward.
Incidentally, it’s also possible that Scotland will try to secede once more. Similar movements to secede also exist in northern Italy and in Spain (Catalonia/Barcelona).
My relative skepticism is strictly short-term, and believe me, I’ll be happy to be wrong here! All my life I’ve seen too much ugliness, contempt and aggression towards my country Russia, and my people, from the West. Regretfully, this ugliness isn’t abating – it’s actually intensifying as the gloves off fight over the future of the world comes to a head. I’ll be overjoyed if the people of the West manage to positively surprise me by acting better than I’ve seen them act for years.
By contrast, my long-term global predictions are very positive and remain the same as always:
1. The Great Eurasia is forming in front of our very eyes, and it’s only the matter of time for it to gain real traction.
2. The predatory US Empire is waning, which in the long run will be good for all, certainly including Americans.
3. EU has two roads to choose from and depending on how soon and how well Europeans make their choices, it can be done the easy way or the hard and protracted way. If present EU governments refuse to reform, if new politicians are not elected in the EU ASAP (Merkel, Hollande and the Brussels gang all have to go), EU will fall apart within several years.
But is it possible to save the EU at all? No, not in this configuration. But IF after EU falls apart (and NATO is disbanded – give both several years) some countries decide they would like to stay or get back together in some sort of looser and more productive configuration – why not. They should.
The closest analogy is that of the USSR. EU is undergoing the process the USSR and the so-called ‘Eastern Block’ experienced in mid-to-late 1980s through 1990s. Both Warsaw Pact and the USSR fell apart because the way they were held together was counterproductive and even harmful. However, as we are observing, the new, much healthier and forward-looking alliances are now forming around Russia within the Eurasian space (and global space, too).
4. The rickety chair effect I describe in ESR9 and ESR12 is gaining momentum. If you recall, in ESR12 I said that BREXIT, regardless of its result will generate a domino effect in Europe when more and more countries will want to have referendums to exit the EU, since EU isn’t fulfilling their needs and aspirations any more. This will lead to the old EU ‘chair’ becoming more and more rickety and more and more unstable.
Recall that I said since 2014 that Greece may again try to GREXIT in 2017 or 2018. But Greece is in a very difficult economic situation. It’s more likely that the richest and most successful EU countries will try to exit first, namely France, the Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, and even Germany. Emboldened by their success in the UK and the earlier anti-Ukraine vote in the Netherlands, the organizers of the referendum are very likely to go on helping organize similar referendums in other EU countries.
5. REFERENDUMS GALORE coming up! The new GLOBAL TREND has shaped up in front of our eyes, began by the Crimean March 2014 referendum to secede from Ukraine. When politicians and elites refuse to listen to their people, people will take power into their own hands and show their strength through direct democracy.
6. The positive effects of the rising REFERENDUM TREND is that of the direct democracy and people’s empowerment. People will begin recalling that they do hold real power.
Another positive effect will be in favor of the long-suffering people of Russia and what is so far called Ukraine (the future Novorossia, plus possibly also Carpatian Rus and Kiev Rus, depending on how finalized divisions will be made).
The effect is this: after having their own referendums and the change in the rotten political system of the EU, Europeans will finally recognize the Crimean and Donbass referendums and they will finally stop harassing Russia! The voices to recognize Crimean referendum are already sounding from the saner EU politicians, and eventually it will become a norm.
Recall my prediction that Ukraine (under another name, or names) will turn back to Russia by 2018. All this will be happening simultaneously: along with an avalanche or referendums and EU revolts and the turn of Ukraine towards Russia, not only Crimea will be recognized officially as a part of Russia by the West. Along with DNR/LNR 2014 referendums, the forgotten referendums in Pridnestrovie – Transnistria (to join Russia), as well as in Abkhazia and S. Ossetia will also be recognized. This may take a few years though.
Very few in the West know, but the USSR had the famous 1991 referendum, the information about which was buried. In that referendum the majority of the former Soviet republics voted to preserve the USSR. Just imagine what happens when the real results are made public or the 1991 referendum is repeated!
The interesting thing is that even the former Baltic republics that are considered anti-Russian (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) may surprise us, should their people are ever allowed to have their own opinion. So far the regimes there suppress the voice of the people, aided by the US tanks. And this is why Estonia and Latvia deny the right to vote to their Russian-speaking population. What will happen when millions of the so-called ‘non-citizens’ are actually allowed to vote? One thing for sure: US tanks will have to leave in a hurry…
In fact, people everywhere will be emboldened to conduct referendums on issues of importance. Some Balkans/ex-Yugoslavia mini-states, which have been artificially divided, may decide as a result of their referendums to get back together. Specifically these are: Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia.
I also foresee a new tight union (economic, political and more) eventually forming between the Balkans countries, including some of former Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Greece – and Russia/Eurasian Union.
I am very curious to see what happens to Turkey after the Kurds get together and organize their referendum.
These are just some of the examples. In general, we are present during The GREAT EARTH SHIFT. The old systems, be it political, social or spiritual are falling off and the new are emerging. The new countries, new borders and new unions will emerge and strengthen, while the old will either diminish or disappear altogether.
I give NATO a few more years before it is disbanded.
BREAKING NEWS: at the same time that we all were fixated on BREXIT, a historic SCO summit took place in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. SCO, per above prediction on the new alliances and unions, is growing exponentially. I’ll have a separate piece on that. Stay tuned!

EARTH SHIFT REPORT 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT (He who controls Black Sea controls Russia’s soft underbelly)
Better than a thriller…
EARTH SHIFT REPORT 8
Lada Ray’s Message
This Earth Shift Report is in part geopolitical analysis, in part futurist trendcast, and in part investigative report.
But what really sets it apart is that reading it, you’ll feel at times that you are in the midst of a geopolitical or spy thriller, and at other times, as if you’ve landed in an apocalyptic sci-fi!
Because the geographic position of the many areas we discuss is of crucial importance to the big geopolitical game being played around Black Sea, this report includes a number of maps, which will help my readers orient and anchor themselves in the convoluted sea of events and changes. Each map is explained and tied to the narrative, which will greatly enrich your reading experience!
The fact that I myself am intimately familiar with those parts will put you straight in the middle of an action. But that’s not all! Added are several chilling, shocking, revealing, and at times, hugely entertaining, stories and videos that make this Earth Shift Report better than a thriller!
Throughout this report I offer you a challenge:
Let’s solve this puzzle!
Why is Saakashvili, ousted ex-prez of Georgia and Odessa governor, so cocky with Kiev elites he seemingly should be grateful to? Why did he say he was aiming higher than the post of Ukraine PM, or even president?
The answer to these questions will bring us to the very heart of the issue: why is Black Sea so important geopolitically?
Why are there so much struggle and competition around Black Sea?
Why is US so intent on turning Odessa into its mega-base?

In response to my latest article Greferendum, Greek Default and Grexit. Lada Ray Predictions,
This morning after the referendum confirms your prediction Lada. I also felt that it would be a NO vote. Disappointed to see that Janos Varoufakis has resigned but perhaps this is a ploy to ameliorate the ire of the EU dictators and banksters and buoy up Tspris’s bargaining position. I am sure Janos will be working on behind the scenes! Thank you Brave Greeks! You have the EU Elites packing it and running everywhere to have meetings to see what they do next. What a joke..not even a game plan! They are so sure of themselves that they cannot see any other possibility but their agenda which is disintegrating before their very eyes and they are still hardline and remorseless. Such pride and arrogance comes before a huge fall…they have just tripped and are about to hit the ground face down.
Greferendum Domino Effect? Revolution Coming? The Future of Europe and Eurasia?
Yes, unfortunately, the resignation of Varoufakis is political maneuvering. I like the guy a lot, he has gumption. But he is too ‘radical’ – read: clear-minded and mission-driven – for EU, which they perceive as lack of compromise. He scares them.
Essentially, EU negotiators demanded that he leaves, citing the impossibility of talking with him. Varoufakis is a very influential and charismatic presence in Greece, and Alexis Tsipras’ strongest ally. After his resignation the immediate EU speculation is that Tsipras won’t survive in power that much longer. I heard a German analyst today predicting that Tsipras government won’t survive for two weeks. Well, EU bureaucrats and banksters are itching to unseat the new Greek government. I wrote at length why that is in:
- Greferendum, Greek Default and Grexit. Lada Ray Predictions
- Putin’s Gambit: Germany To Replace Ukraine as Russian Gas Transiter
However, I don’t believe these people are that easy to unseat. It’s certainly a wishful thinking of some. Greferendum showed what people really think.
That said, Greece can’t avoid talking to the EU because they are running out of cash and banks are on the verge of collapse. Since so far Greece is fully integrated into the EU system, it can’t be helped. None of the measures EU proposes will work, but Greece will have no choice but to prolong the agony, until 1-2 years from now the tight rope will finally snap and Greece will have to leave the EU. As I said in the above-linked articles, Grexit will be linked to the completion of Turkish Stream and other cooperative agreements with Russia.
This is to answer a doubtful comment to the same post by another reader:
Could Grexit happen sooner than 2017? I actually said it would be ‘by 2017,’ which means it could happen in 2016, although doubtful. Sure, there could be accelerating events, which will make the situation fluctuate, but they are not likely to influence the final outcome – and that’s mildly put.
My prediction remains the same (as usual, I don’t deviate from my predictions and they as a rule always come true, including dates and numbers). Sure, I am still only human, but I think my track record speaks for itself.
Unfortunately, some prefer to argue with me about my predictions. It happened in 2012 and 2014. Every time, I simply suggest people wait till the event or outcome predicted takes place.
So far, I don’t recall ever being wrong and those who argue with me being right. The thing is: I don’t look at what MSM says or politicians do – I capture the prevailing quantum (cosmic) energy leading to the event and determine its likelihood on quantum plane, not on 3D plane. But this it a topic for another discussion, which we may have eventually.
Many readers understand what I am talking about when I tell them things like that. However, those few who don’t want to hear about cosmic energy and quantum stuff, preferring only things they can touch and see with their own eyes, I have a solution for you. Simply look at my tangible, for all to see, predictions track record. You can go to PREDICTIONS for that, although the list is incomplete (a more complete and organized version may appear one day, time allowing, on LadaRay.info). Then you can decide who and what you should listen to and believe.
Back to Greece:
EU demands someone they can talk to – a compromise figure. The newly appointed finance minister is just that. He went to school in London, so he knows their mentality. He is also considered a quiet technocrat, as opposed to the flamboyant, politically outspoken charmer, Varoufakis, who rides his motorcycle around Athens and wears a t-shirt to EU meetings. That said, the new finance minister is also a long-time member of Syriza, so don’t expect him to deviate from the party line. He is just a compromise to satisfy EU elites, utterly scandalized by Varoufakis’ unorthodox behavior.
In previous articles/videos, which you can find in the above-referenced links, I explained that Greece will find itself under a long-term attack from US and EU due to its anti-EU revolt, its support for Russia and Turkish Stream. This is just the beginning, so hold on to your seatbelts! Greece has no choice but to maneuver its way between the Scylla and Charybdis of these difficult times, the same way as we all have no choice but to go through the developing Earth Shift.
It’s working out exactly as predicted in Greferendum, Greek Default and Grexit. Lada Ray Predictions and previous vids/articles. For now, Greece will have to compromise with EU and vice versa. This posturing will continue for a year or two, until Grexit and EU exodus by other countries… unless EU changes, which I don’t foresee as they are too tightly integrated into the US-EU political-financial-military matrix.
An illustration of how this matrix works:
Last week, Finland denied visas to Russian Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin and a number of the Russian Duma deputies, basically the top elected politicians in the country. They were scheduled to attend a session of the OSCE in Helsinki. The reason given for the visa denial is that these people are under sanctions due to ‘Russia’s annexation of Crimea.’ The scandal is huge and growing, with many in Russia demanding return sanctions against Finland. Finland, which prides itself in its democracy – again, when it’s convenient – acted illegally. The thing is that Naryshkin and others cannot be banned from attending international forums in any country in their official capacity as Duma speaker and deputies. The ban only applies to their private trips. By banning entire Russian delegation, EU effectively shuts the mouth of those who have a dissenting opinion, so, god forbid, Europeans wouldn’t hear it.
But there is much more to the story. Finland was a part of the Russian Empire for centuries. Finns themselves seceded from Sweden, which they felt mistreated them. They asked for protection by and admission into the Russian Empire. It was accepted and became an autonomous province of the Russian Empire until 1917 revolution. Lenin gave legal independence to Finland as a thank you for giving him asylum when he was hiding from Russian authorities. Just imagine how de-facto independent of the Russian authorities the Finns were if they could hide Lenin on their territory while he was preparing a revolution to overthrow the tsar’s regime, and no one could touch him! There is a deeper story behind that, which I’ll tell some other time.
You decide how to classify Finland after all this, if – apparently, as a sign of gratitude – it first sided with Hitler, when many Finns became fascists and joined the Nazi party. Later, Finland became one of the US/EU forposts from whose territory the clandestine undermining of the USSR and Russia was conducted. Meanwhile, Finland pretended to be a good trading partner for Russia, capitalizing on the lucrative Russian market, while essentially serving as one of the mainstays of Russophobia in the West. Finland often served as an intermediary for other Western countries in Russian trade, due to its favorable geographic position. This lasted until Russia’s return sanctions last year hit Finnish imports to Russia.
Now, under US and EU pressure, Finland denies visas to Russian people’s representatives under the pretext of the Crimean vote for independence and further reunification with Russia. Just consider the double-faced hypocrisy of this step in light of Finland’s own history!
Why did I tell this story? To serve as an illustration of some points and predictions I will make below.
National referendum as the only truly democratic voice of the people:
It all started with Crimea, and before Crimea, with Pridnestrovie. The breakway Pridnestrovie (former part of the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic within the USSR) referendum of 2006 result: 98% voted for full independence from Moldova (Moldavia) and re-integration with Russia. Moldova has never been an independent state since it acquired ‘independence’ from the USSR. Instead, it promptly fell under the Romanian dictate.
Since the beginning, the most developed part of Moldova, Pridnestrovie said no, and seceded. It had more than one referendum, the two latest of which were in 2006 (98% for reunification with Russia) and 2014 snap referendum with the same result – but the paperwork from that referendum was taken away by Moldova officials from the First Deputy PM of Russia Rogozin while he was flying through the capital of Moldova Kishinev (Chisinau)! His plane was detained, too, and he had to take a commercial flight back to Moscow. Yes, it’s that out of control!
The Gagauzia autonomy within Moldova also had a referendum in February 2014, in which 97% voted against EU, for Customs Union and closer ties with Russia. See my video about Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia, explaining much more:
|Pridnestrovie vs Moldova: Eurasian Union vs EU (LadaRayLive 2)
by Lada Ray
(More articles about Moldova, Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia available on this site – to find them, type keywords in ‘Search.’)
Because of the land-locked status of Pridnestrovie, which is now in a very difficult blockade from Ukraine and Moldova sides, with close participation by Romania, Russia was unable to honor the results of that referendum – for now! Soon, I am planning a piece about Pridnestrovie and Odessa, and the important for all of us processes that take place there.
In today’s world, a national referendum is the only fully legal and truly democratic voice of the people on important issues. Meanwhile, the West – US and EU – stubbornly and blindly ignore results of national referendums in places like Pridnestrovie, Crimea and Donbass, demonstrating their utter contempt for the same principles of law and democracy they had been touting as the only principles by which to live. Of course, this was their position when it was convenient for them. The moment the shoe is on another foot – out the window all these principles go.
Hypocrisy? Double standards? Are they simply stupid and don’t understand? Oh no, it’s so much worse! There are pathologically sociopathic liars and criminals in power in the EU and US, who feel their long-standing feeding grounds threatened by the awakening power of the people.
Despite crazy resistance of these dark forces, the referendum movement has no signs of abating. In fact it continues gaining momentum! Greferendum and potential Grexit is already sending shocks through the entire EU system.
Meanwhile in Austria: several days ago, Austrian citizens submitted a petition to exit the EU, with 260,000 signatures. This petition forced the EU exit debate in the Austrian parliament, sending new shockwaves through the already shaken system. Spain, Italy, Portugal and some other countries are watching what’s happening in Greece carefully. There may be attempts to exit by Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, Hungary, and possibly others, such as Cyprus ( – not yet). Leftist (Podemos), anti-EU government may come to power in Spain this autumn. A resurgence of popularity of leftist, anti-EU, pro-sovereignty forces is happening in Europe, including Germany itself (Die Linke), where leftist tradition has always been strong, but always suppressed by US/German/EU elites.
Incidentally, these leftist movements are traditionally pro-Russian and anti-American, which opens a completely new, deeper can of worms.
Revolution vs. Evolution. Predictions for the future of Europe and Eurasia
There are only two ways of reforming something that doesn’t work any more. Route number 1: peacefully, through wisdom, course correction and mutual understanding. But for that, you need both sides cooperating. Route number 2: if one side is refusing the see the other side’s point of view – the next step is revolution.
The classic definition of a revolution coined by Vladimir Lenin is: “Revolution is when elites won’t and the masses can’t.” In other words, when elites won’t see the opposing point of view and won’t change, while the people can’t continue living like this.
And that’s the way EU is going. I know some of my readers feel sorry about my predictions that EU will have to split up, at least parts of the EU. They shouldn’t. The EU has become a rotten to the core, subservient to the darkest elements the Anglo-American and globalist bankster elites, destructive force.
If the Union of European states is to be reborn, it has to be a mutually respectful, cooperative union, unlike today’s system, based more on predatory profit, hatred and superiority complex. But even that won’t work long-term.
You all know my position on this, and this is my prediction:
In order to be viable, it has to be a Union of all of Eurasia, not Europe. Eurasia is one continent. (Very long ago, during Vedic times, all of it was called Assia – but that is a fascinating story for a different post, or rather a book!)
Enough warring with each other! It’s time for the people of Eurasia to make peace and cooperate. This is the plan of Russia and China, realised through the New Silk Road and Russian energy deals.
At first, it has to be a free trade zone of what is now some parts of the EU, Russia (with Eurasian Union), China, and probably India and a few other Asian countries. The Middle East (parts of it are a part of Eurasian continent) and other relevant areas will have to join later.
Sure, European states should have their own union of some sort, but not exclusively, and they certainly should not punish and bully their members, like they did with Hungary, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Italy, France and Greece, for joining projects outside their union.
Ironically, it is Germany that is now showing the way by joining projects outside of the EU successfully, such as Nord Stream. But Germany, in the usual divide and conquer manner, doesn’t want others to benefit from similar lucrative projects, actively blocking other countries. Germany’s hand was in part in Ukraine coup – to tear Ukraine from Russia; it’s now trying to prevent Greece’s Turkish Stream participation. Austria and Hungary, which signed up for both South Stream and Turkish Stream, are also unhappy with Germany’s selfish attitude towards Russian gas projects. This possessively imperial behavior generates a growing clash between haves and have-nots in the EU, and soon this clash between Germany and everyone else will be impossible to hide.
Any exclusive union between European states (basically only Western Europe and parts of Central Europe) alone will be stillborn. Why? Because what is today incorrectly considered ‘Europe’ is just a small part of the continent of Europe, and Europe as a continent in reality is a small part of Eurasia. Any limitations will create artificial barriers and stifle mutually beneficial development of all of Eurasia and the entire Planet Earth.
Therefore, there will always be conflict, with some wanting to look east and others west. Western/Central/Eastern Europe will always be torn between siding with US on one hand and with Russia on another.
EU has to abandon its arrogance towards anyone who isn’t as prosperous as they are at this particular point in human development. Just mere 5-10 centuries ago, this wasn’t the case at all. At that time, EU was a poor, warring hell hole, while the Golden Age was taking place in Russia, Middle East, India and China. Europeans have to remember that the reason they are this prosperous is because for the past several centuries they colonized and robbed blind the populations of Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America, and lately, the population of Russia and Ukraine.
Things always change in our 3D world. They will change again; in fact, the change – EARTH SHIFT – is happening now.
The present day refugee flood into the EU from Africa, Asia, but especially Middle East, is payback for previous misdeeds. Regardless of all the indignation of Europeans, it’s the universal law of karma at work. This law never fails. As the refrain for my novelette CATHARSIS (Legend of the Lemurians) goes, “Karma can be a beautiful maiden …or a bitch.”
Europeans, as well as Americans, need to humble down very significantly in order to achieve an evolutionary leap to the new era of cooperative and multi-polar world. If they, or their elites elected by the European and American people, refuse to do so, there will be revolution – and it will be devastating.
There is still time to make a more or less peaceful transition, but time is running out.
Dear readers, as you know, I have started a new and very promising PROJECT EARTH SHIFT and a new series of videos on Lada Ray Channel on YouTube. I just published two first videos and articles: 1. Universal Scale of Consciousness (life-diminishing calibrations) and 2. Universal Scale of Consciousness (life-affirming/ life-creating calibrations).

Now, to the trending topic: Battleground Moldova – November 30, 2014 Elections
Latest updates from Moldova and Pridnestrovie will be posted here as they come up. Eventually, I may create a separate EARTH SHIFT REPORT about Moldova and Pridnestrovie on LadaRay.info (Remember this site! All future EARTH SHIFT REPORTS will appear there, and all present ones will be transferred to it eventually!). My original article, Battleground Moldova, together with analysis and predictions, appears below updates!
Link: Igor Dodon, leader of Socialists – majority election winner – says: the first motion by Socialists in the new parliament will be to annul the harmful EU association agreement. Also, Socialists, Communists and CU Block are disputing election results in court due to the fact that 1/3 of Moldavian voters residing as guest workers in Russia were denied their constitutional right to vote. Dodon and others predicts social unrest in the country unless re-voting happens.
In the above video at 4:00 local village people talk about how their children who work in Russia send them money. $1.5 bln sent home by Moldavians in Russia allow many in local villages to survive. “For us, Russia is like air.” “We don’t want NATO here. Let them have it in the US. We want to live in Moldova, our country, not in the US.”
At 4:38 – footage of the April, 2009 Kiev-style maidan in capital Kishinev, Moldova, in which then government of Vladimir Voronin (Moldavian version of Yanukovich) was overturned and pro-EU forces came to power. Later, the investigation revealed that violence and pogroms you are seeing on video footage above were executed by 200 militants that arrived from Romania. These 200 thugs turned out to be officers of Romanian special forces. Another 100 thugs arrived to Kishinev from Vinnitsa, central Ukraine, by personal order of then PM Yulia Tymoshenko (Ukraine Orange revolution leader together with CIA asset Viktor Yushenko).
In today’s Ukraine, the agrarian Vinnitsa region in central Ukraine, boasts huge numbers of angry, under-educated and unemployed young men due to the county’s catastrophically ruined economy. Vinnitsa is one of the biggest viper’s nests and sources of violent ukro-nazis for the battalions that ship to Donbass in order to kill innocent civilians. During the bloody burning of people alive on Odessa’s Kulikovo Polie on May 2, 2014, 2,000 ukro-nazi thugs from Vinnitsa descended on the peaceful city of Odessa. They threatened local citizens and usurped the city. At midnight they conducted Hitler-style midnight torch marches, while screaming nazi slogans. Moldova 2009, just like Ukraine 2014, are both typical color revolutions, BOTH masterminded by CIA/US/EU and executed by especially trained international terrorists ready to kill and torture.
Link: Shelin (CU Party leader) talks about falsifications, carousel voting, inability of Moldavians in Russia to vote, 6000 written citizen protests that were thrown out by Kishinev government, etc. Customs Union block disputes election results saying citizens have been duped. Customs Union Block failed to pass the 9% barrier (this is the first time my prediction didn’t come true, due to the denial of voting rights to 1/3 of the voters – read below. Election results are being disputed in court and may not stand. My prediction about CU Block getting into parliament may still materialize if elections are annulled.)
On the other hand, pro-Customs Union Socialists received majority. However, not enough to form a government. Socialists were planning on forming a coalition with the Patria party of Renato Usaty, however, Patria party was banned from elections — illegal move by ruling pro-EU coalition consisting of 3 neo-liberal parties, designed to block Socialists from the possibility of forming a government.
And their scheme succeeded as said 3 pro-EU parties, each of which trailed individually, together received just a few percentage points more than pro-CU forces. They will again form a government, leaving the majority party of Socialists in opposition together with Communists (just like before).
Overall, as I say below in predictions, the situation between pro-EU and pro-CU forces is near equal, creating that uneasy equilibrium I talk about, which will persist. Read more in predictions below for a full picture.
#moldovaelections First election results in! Pro-Russia and pro-Customs Union #Moldova socialists with leader #Dodon are in the lead. Communists, who used to be the No. 1 party in Moldova (read more about that below) are second. Three pro-EU neo-liberal parties that form present coalition government are trailing behind!
Blatant disregard for citizens’ rights, and next to Ukraine, the most anti-democratic elections in recent history!
Fresh info from Moscow: Moldova opened only one polling station for entire Moscow, where most of the 750,000 Moldavian guest workers in Russia reside. Video link – look what is happening at that polling station! 6 thousand people standing in line in the cold; Moscow authorities had to blockade and divert traffic on Kuznetsky Most – one of the central Moscow streets. 1000 policemen had to be brought in to maintain order – but people behaved very orderly, no scandals or disorderly behavior. Everyone in line is angry at Moldovan government for preventing them from voting. Only 5 polling stations were opened for the entire Russia. Meanwhile, in the EU, where less than 300,000 Moldavian workers reside, 125 polling stations were opened.
According to this, earlier update from Moscow, 15,000 people gathered during the day by the Moldavian embassy on Kuznetsky Most in Moscow, trying to vote. The gathering turned into a real protest with people chanting ‘Rossiya’ (Russia) and demanding the right to vote. According to report, Moldova’s government allocated only 3,000 ballots to this (main) voting station!!! Video link.
Great and timely question by one of my readers about Moldova:
Moldova is the poorest and one of the smallest countries of Europe. Moldova is also a new geopolitical battleground. The November 30, 2014 Moldovan parliamentary elections promise to be the beginning of a shift. The pro-EU coalition government is doing everything to remain in power, dragging Moldova kicking and screaming into the EU, and into the absorption by Romania. The means used to hang on to power at all cost are openly anti-democratic and illegal. Meanwhile, according to various polls, the majority of Moldavians are pro-Customs Union with Russia.
To many Moldavians this is the issue of livelihood and even life and death, in addition to any cultural preferences, traditions, and the Russian language many speak at home. In this regard, Moldavia is very much like Ukraine. It is literally a suicide for Moldova to cozy up to the EU when almost all of its trade is with Russia and other countries of the Customs Union and when 750,000 of its citizens are guest workers in Russia. These guest workers, who may be deported back to Moldova should it make further overtures towards the EU, add a huge chunk to Moldova’s GDP by sending their earnings home to support their families.
The most prosperous and industrialized part of then Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic, Pridnestrovie (or Transnistria), has seceded in 1992 because the people wanted to keep speaking Russian. Another area of Moldova, the Gagauzia autonomy, recently had a referendum in which over 95% of the population also promised to secede and join Customs Union independently if Moldova keeps moving towards EU and away from Russia. The Russian-speaking north may also secede should the pro-EU momentum not be reversed.
Knowing they are on shaky ground, current pro-EU government uses openly anti-democratic methods to stifle the voice of the people. The party Patria (Motherland) of Renato Usaty has just been banned from participating in the November 30 elections. The new coalition Moldova’s Choice – Customs Union isn’t allowed on TV and kept away from TV debates. In the info vacuum many citizens may not know what voting choices they have.
The most egregious anti-democratic action of the Moldova’s government is the denial of the right to vote to the vast majority of Moldavians living and working in Russia. There are 750,000 Moldavians in Moscow and other cities. The government in Kishinev only agreed to open 5 polling stations with capacity of 4,000 voters each. This happened despite protests, polls and insistence by citizens and the Customs Union block, who demanded 200 polling station to satisfy the need. Obviously the authorities know they will definitely lose if all Moldovans working in Russia, who remain mass supporters of the shaky Moldavian economy and huge contributors to its GDP, are allowed to vote.
According to Renato Usaty, leader of the banned Patria party, Moldova government is sending only 15,000 voting ballots to Russia, which means 735,000 voters are denied the right to vote. In the EU Moldova is opening 95 voting stations (with 300-350,000 Moldavians living there) vs. only 5 voting stations in Russia where 750,000 Moldavians reside. Further, according to Usaty, polls show that 3 pro-EU parties presently forming government coalition only get 35% of support: video link. This effectively means that the ruling coalition will not be able to hang on to power unless the democratic vote is manipulated.
Moldova’s tide is turning. People of Moldova don’t want the violent Ukraine/ Donbass war scenario, but they also start seing that the path towards the EU is a suicide. Only the oligarchs and the ruling political class will benefit – the country at large will lose.
As a result of these elections the new force, which is in favor of the Customs Union with Russia, will enter the parliament to serve as a counterweight to pro-EU coalition. I predict this new political force, including Socialists and those who side with them, such as Customs Union party of Topolnitsky and Gagauz Party of the Regions with Formuzal, will have a surprisingly good showing and will gain between 15% and 20% of votes. For most, it will be especially surprising considering the info blockade and blocking of the voters abroad.
Communist Party, which is communist in name only, is the largest and oldest party in Moldova. Many vote for it specifically because they mistakenly think it’s pro-Russian. Same confusion happened with Yanukovich and Party of the Regions in Ukraine, until they showed their true colors.
Communists, through their head Vladimir Voronin, have recently re-affirmed on public TV their pro-EU position. As I discussed in my earlier article and video (see links below), it appears Voronin has been threatened/ blackmailed by the West to toe the line. It appears the CIA presented Voronin with an undeniable proof of his son’s guilt in crimes committed in the US. Voronin Jr. resides in the USA. His daddy was told to support the EU integration of Moldova if he doesn’t want his son in jail.
It also appears that Voronin’s substantial personal wealth allegedly stored in the EU and/or US-dependent offshores, was also threatened unless the Communist party expresses a pro-EU position. As I said, these are communists in name only.
Voronin used to be the president of Moldova until mid-2000, when he was overturned in a very similar to Ukraine, albeit less violent, color revolution. He was replaced with the present pro-EU, pro-Romania (which in Moldavian terms means they are anti-Moldavian sovereignty) coalition of Western-educated neo-liberals. To this day, about 40% of voters still vote for communists. Each of the three pro-EU parties in power has between 10 and 20 percent of votes, but together they are able to have a slight majority, thus putting the direct majority communists in opposition.
Communists still hold a lot of sway and can influence the vote. From this it is clear how important it was for the West to threaten and compromise Voronin. Voronin proved to be as weak and flimsy a leader as Yanukovich. He put his personal interests above the interests of his country. The result – as expected.
As an afterthought, Voronin hopes to return one day as president of the country. It is very possible that by siding with pro-EU forces he is also positioning himself as a lesser evil. If pro-Russian forces can’t get the majority in the next several years, people may opt to vote for a lesser evil, Voronin – at least this is his thinking. In fact, Voronin isn’t a lesser evil. In order to return to presidency he is ready to sell out his country.
Still, once in the parliament, the Customs Union Block together with other forces, such as Dodon and his Socialists, and certain Communists who’ll vote pro-Customs Union, will be able to serve as a good counterweight to the pro-EU coalition in power. The biggest obstacle the above-described pro-Customs Union forces have is that they are unable to agree on a coalition due to rivalry and mutual disagreements. Seemingly, socialists, communists and the Customs Union Block would make a natural alliance. But as it stands now, they blame each other for mistakes and inconsistencies, sometimes rightly. Taking advantage of these rivalries, pro-EU parties are able to push their agenda through almost without a hitch. Truly, united we stand, divided we fall. Food for thought for the pro-Customs Union forces of Moldova!
Incidentally, banning Patria with Renato Usaty from running seems to be directed against Dodon and pro-Customs Union socialists, who were planning on forming a parliamentary coalition together with Usaty.
All the above notwithstanding, there is a possibility of a loose coalition between anti-EU forces once election results become clear. After the elections it will be extremely important for the Customs Union Block to continue expanding their momentum and influence – this, in fact, is paramount for the success of the Pro-EAU movement in later elections.
My advice: It would have been much better if Voronin stepped down as the leader of communists, since he is a compromised figure, thus stifling the development of his party and diluting voter trust. However, his lust for power won’t allow him to do the right thing, and no one in his party is likely to challenge his authority.
Prediction: for the next couple of years, the compromised Voronin and communists will serve as a dead weight and a brake on the promising development of the pro-Customs Union/ pro-EAU forces in Moldova. Unless and until there is an internal revolution (literally) within the Communist party (which is unlikely so far), the best strategy for other pro-EAU forces is to take away as many votes from the communists as possible. Those who traditionally vote communist (and that’s about 40% of voters in the country!) need to be convinced that the future is with the Customs Union Block and with Socialists instead. These forces should also leave their differences behind and unite.
Incidentally, the analysis and conclusions presented in this article is something you won’t hear in Moldova, nor from Western MSM, nor from Russian analysts. This article constitutes my original analysis and predictions based on my own info and observations.
The above dynamics will establish an uneasy equilibrium in the country for a period. This equilibrium will last until more people start leaning and voting anti-EU. At that point the struggle between opposing forces will intensify and the game will change, likely becoming more violent. However, considering Moldavians are terrified of the violent Ukrainian scenario next door, there is a good probability the overt violence may be prevented. So far it’s been peaceful, at least physically. The political and social fights will continue being intense, dirty and gloves off.
Moldova will be in an undecided state for a couple of years, until the scale is tipped irreversibly towards Eurasian Union. Incidentally, these two neighbors – Moldova and Ukraine – will look at each other and compare each other’s notes in regards to their decision to join the Customs Union, or rather Eurasian Union. The decision to join EAU will happen for both anywhere between 2016 and 2018, as I said in PREDICTIONS. For Moldova it will be around 2017 or 2018.
Joining EAU is unavoidable. But it will only happen when USA is weakened sufficiently so it cannot dictate any more.
Incidentally, joining EAU is the only way for the breakaway People’s Republic of Pridnestrovie (Transnistria) and Moldova to again become friends.
Some borders (including with Romania) may be revised as a result of all these processes. This will start happening towards the end of this decade and into the next. However, this may not be that big of an issue. It is likely that Romania, along with some other Eastern/Central European countries, in the next decade may become a member of Eurasian Union as well – at least an associate member.

FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History (there is some about Moldova here as well)
ORIGINAL – very comprehensive and interesting post and video! LadaRayLive: Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU
Moldova is a small country in the south-western part of the post-Soviet space, just west of Odessa, populated with simple and friendly people. I grew up in Odessa, while my relatives lived in Bendery (now the de-facto independent Pridnestrovie) and Kishinev (the capital of Moldova), therefore I am intimately familiar with those parts.
Moldova is considered the poorest country of Europe. Out of 3.6 mln population 1 million works abroad; 700,000 or more of these, in Russia.
In 1991-93 the wealthiest and most industrialized part of then Moldova (aka, Moldavia), Pridnestrovie: full name Pridnestrovskaya Moldavskaya Respublica, or PMR (Western name: Transnistria), seceded after Kishinev Moldovan government announced they wanted to become a part of Romania.
Notice, Pridnestrovie kept ‘Moldavia’ as part of the break-away republic’s full name, therefore declaring that they are not against Moldova, as many Moldovan nationalists make them out to be in order create hatred and division in society. In fact, the tiny Pridnestrovie with 500,000 population, has THREE official state languages: Russian, Ukrainian and Moldavian. Just like Crimean autonomy, with 2 million people, which has recently adopted 3 state languages as well: Russian, Ukrainian and Tatar. Compare that to Ukraine and Moldova with only Ukrainian and Moldovan as state languages respectively, despite the fact that 50-70% of the population (or more, in Ukraine’s case) speak Russian and despite popular protest. No comment needed…
Back in 1993, after a short but brutal war, Russian peacekeeping contingent was stationed in Pridnestrovie based on the official UN mandate, and only that stopped the civil war.
Should the Donbass people today be so lucky, the Russian peacekeeping contingent would have stopped today’s war in Donbass as well. But ever since 1993, the UN fell completely under the US thumb, so this is not an option at this time for the long-suffering E.Ukraine (Novorossia). However, just a heads up – my intel says that this may eventually change!
During Soviet times, Moldova, or Moldavskaya Sovetskaya Sotsialisticheskaya Respublica, was in mint condition due to constant infusions of resources by the Russian Federation – the same thing that happened in Ukraine and other Soviet republics. Brezhnev had a soft spot for Moldova as he worked there at one point. Originally Brezhnev was from Ukraine, and he heavily invested in Ukraine as well. The same story goes for ALL 14 republics, including in large part Georgia, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, who took Russian resources gladly for many years, but who are now so keen on complaining about how ‘Russians oppressed them.’
Soon, I will have a new free EARTH SHIFT Report 2: The Roots of Anti-Russian Hatred in Ukraine, which will go into more detail about how it worked.
I also have a soft spot for both Moldova and Pridnestrovie, having spent many summers there as a child. I think these are lovely parts, although many others in Russia looked down on Moldavia, thinking it agricultural, simple and unimportant. Me – since I was about 5, I was convinced it was highly underrated. And incidentally, the mentality in Russia is changing, too. What can I say, I am always ahead of my time ;), which is more often a curse rather than a blessing…
In those days all Russians, Ukrainians, Moldavians, Turks, Gagauzs, Bolgarians, Greeks and everyone else, lived in peace not only in Moldavia and Ukraine, but everywhere else in Eurasia. One day, peace will reign again. Read the rest of this entry
Episode 2 of LadaRayLive. Europe’s Stepchildren: Pridnestrovie and Moldova – Eurasian Union vs EU
Moldova and Pridnestrovie – I call them the stepchildren of Europe. The unrecognized Pridnestrovie – PMR (aka, Transnistria or TransDniestria) seceded from Moldova in 1990-1992, following a brutal civil war, and it has been knocking on the door of the Russian Federation ever since. In February 2014 Moldova’s other area, the Gagauzia Autonomy, had a referendum in which citizens voted overwhelmingly to secede from Moldova and join Customs Union with Russia. The new party, “Moldova’s Choice – Customs Union” has been formed in the capital of Moldova, Chisinau (Kishinev), and north Moldovan farmers, who are about to be bankrupted because of sanctions, are on the march. Meanwhile, the Chisinau (Kishinev) politicians and elites continue leading the country into EU. In three months, Moldova will have parliamentary elections. The explosion is coming. Will Moldova turn into another Ukraine? Listen to the very detailed and heartfelt analysis and predictions from Lada Ray, who grew up in those parts and who knows them intimately.
