Magyar Narancs - Hungary | 02/04/2009

The entrapped Republic of Moldova

With an eye to the upcoming parliamentary elections the left-liberal weekly Magyar Narancs examines the political situation in the Republic of Moldova: "The Republic of Moldova which gained independence in 1991 can't by any feat of the imagination be described as having been blessed by fate. Wedged in between Romania and Ukraine this country with its four million inhabitants is caught between the hammer and sickle also from a geopolitical perspective. On the one hand the Republic of Moldova is forced to maintain good relations with Moscow and Kiev because of its Russian and Ukrainian minorities (which make up more than 10 percent of the total population). On the other its neighbour to the West, Romania, under whose sovereignty the Republic once stood, remains an important point of reference for the country. … In the parliamentary elections scheduled for April 5 the communists who have governed the country for the past eight years face a conservative-liberal electoral alliance."
