Russia Tries To Lure Moldova Into New Transdniester Format 02.03.2009
With just six weeks to go before the April 5 parliamentary elections, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov traveled to Moldova on February 23-24, his first visit to that country since taking office in March 2004. The timing of his visit fueled speculation that its real purpose was to underscore Moscow's support for the ruling Communist Party, which is seeking a third successive term in office.

CHIŞINĂU (Imedia) – Moscow will continue providing humanitarian aid to Transnistria throughout this entire year, said Russian M.P. Vladimir Medinski during a visit to Tiraspol.

Can Moldova join the East and the West simultaneously? Nicu Popescu, Valentin Krilov, Valeriu Murasvschi. 30.01.2009
Nicu Popescu, a political analyst and researcher with the London-based European Council for Foreign Relations, says that a distinction needs to be made between integration and cooperation. „European integration is absolutely compatible with very good relations with Russia, Ukraine, or Armenia, but is incompatible with integration in the CIS. European integration implies European values and legislation – the CIS is very different from the EU in this sense. Russian standards, for example, when it comes to democracy or the economy, are different from European standards, for which reason Moldova cannot simultaneously integrate in both directions,” argues Mr. Popescu.
Is Moldova About to Leave GUAM? Paul Goble. Window on Eurasia. 29.01.2009
Voronin has always been more sensitive to Russian opposition to GUAM than the other leaders, and that opposition is growing given what many in Moscow see as the anti-Russian policies being pursued by Georgia and a lesser extent by Azerbaijan. Consequently, the Moldovan leader appears to want to distance himself and his country from them. Whether Chisinau will actually decide to leave GUAM or whether Voronin’s remarks now reflect his frustration at being ignored or treated as the odd man out within the grouping remains an open question. But the answer is critical. If Moldova goes, GUAM could disappear from the scene, but if it remains, Voronin’s standing at home and in many places abroad will fall.
