West Making Big Mistake By Sending Weapons To Moldova

Illustrative Image

This attitude may escalate security crisis and threaten Transnistria’s people.

Written by Lucas Leiroz, researcher in Social Sciences at the Rural Federal University of Rio de Janeiro; geopolitical consultant.

A new escalation of tensions appears to be about to begin in Eastern Europe. Moldova’s authorities have recently said that the country is willing to receive lethal weapons from the West in order to increase its “defense potential”. In the current context of conflict, the act sounds like a real provocation against Russia, supported by the West.

On Tuesday, June 21, Moldova’s President Maia Sandu stated that the country is ready to discuss with France the receiving of European lethal weapons. The speech was a positive response to an earlier promise made by French President Emmanuel Macron that Paris would request the sending of a European Defense Fund’s package worth 40 million euros to help Moldavia arm itself.

According to Sandu, Moldova has no intention to be involved in the current conflict in Ukraine and does not want to fight any country, but must be prepared for a worst case scenario, with a possible war situation coming reality. So, with this in mind, the country plans to receive European military aid in different stages, through smaller packages, first of non-lethal resources and later of lethal weapons.

“This assistance will not come immediately, the amount covers a longer period. As part of this assistance, we will receive non-lethal equipment, which is used, for example, for army medical care… We can also talk about lethal equipment or weapons, if possible, in the event we are able to get this help, especially for free (…) We will do our best not to face a conflict, but we all expect the army to protect us in the event of aggression… The army must be equipped with all means to protect us. Therefore, the government must promote this objective to ensure basic needs of the army”, she said.

Despite the fact that Sandu’s latest speech focused on European Union’s aid, it wasn’t just Macron who promised to send money and weapons to Moldavia. In May, UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss stated that the entire NATO was discussing the possibility of initiating a Chisinau arms supply process. For the secretary, this would be necessary as a preventive measure in the face of the existence of a supposed “Russian invasion threat”. In the same vein, US officials had previously emphasized such a “need” to send weapons and money to Moldavia.

In fact, the US, EU, and UK are just reiterating the old narrative that Moscow plans to “invade” other countries and that it could supposedly do so “at any moment”. For years this speech has been the main Western justification for sending weapons and money to anti-Russian governments in Eastern Europe and promoting an unnecessary militarization of the region. This was the same speech that encouraged Kiev to deepen its anti-Russian policies and to accept to participate in NATO’s drills on the Russian border, making Moscow’s response inevitable with the current special military operation.

Moldova appears to be following exactly the same path as Kiev when it comes to adopting the fallacious “Russian invasion” narrative and justifying anti-Moscow policies. A few days ago, on June 19, Sandu approved a law banning Russian media in Moldovan territory. Government’s spokespeople have informed Russian media will now be classified as “disinformation” and “foreign propaganda”, showing that the country is openly committed to pro-Western narratives, with no willingness to listen to the Russian point of view on recent events.

In practice, these attitudes significantly worse the security crisis. The West fosters situations of instability by propagating false narratives with the aim of reacting to non-existent threats. There is no evidence that Russia will attack Moldova, considering that the current operation in Ukraine has a very clear aim to neutralize Kiev militarily, not being a project of regional military expansionism on the part of Moscow. So, by receiving weapons to supposedly “protect itself against Russia”, it is Moldova, not Russia, that becomes the threat to regional security, as it is opting to function as a pro-Western military base.

More than that, the West completely ignores the threat that a large-scale militarization of Moldova could pose to the people of Transnistria. In the 1990-1992 conflict, human rights abuses and war crimes committed by Moldovan agents in urban fighting against Transnistrian forces shocked the entire world and since then, despite being a “frozen conflict”, on several occasions the Moldovan government has shown interest in regaining full control of the region. With the new weapons, the risk of an escalation in this already paralyzed conflict increases, which obviously concerns Russia, considering that Moscow maintains peacekeeping troops in Transnistria.

The best thing for Moldova to do is to reject NATO’s anti-Russian alarmism and respect its state neutrality, institutionalized in the country’s constitution, avoiding getting involved in unnecessary conflicts in the name of foreign interests.

Ukraine lost the war but the fighting will continue until Ukraine is out of weapons or men, women and children. So Moldova, Poland, Baltics, et al needs to be next

Yep, thinking the same.

Once the clown/pianist is hanged, Sandu will either reconsider or be kicked out. It seems the special military operation is picking speed, so there will be no time for the “longer period” covered by this decision.

Russians are absolutely ready to hit the U.S. on their turf, not just the pawns you have mentioned.

G2 man

NATO eunuchs poured $165 billion of weapons in Kievan-Rus and got their ass handed to the by barely 145,000 Russian combat troops, so these arms to tiny Moldova are really going to be “game changer”. This is beyond delusional.

Moldova will finish what Ukraine couldn’t. This is out of an Hollywood sci-fi new movie, thrust me.

Ed Theman

The west right now is trying to do this with Kaliningrad.

What I think is that Russia needs to eventually call the Wests Bluff and use nuclear weapons.

If you think about it, the west has much more to lose because they are much larger and have more people in cities etc. The West lives in luxury and are only concerned with stuff like pronouns and rainbow flags.

I don’t think the West will really want to lose everything in a nuclear war with Russia when Russia has the nuclear weapons to knock out every city in the World.

I believe if Russia attacks one of the NATO countries in the East and fires a small nuke in Ukraine, and says, we will nuke any military that comes to stop us, I think the West will just back off as its not worth a nuclear war over test crappy eastern European countries.

Simon Ndiritu

No need, Russia has enough conventional means that can carpet bomb UK or Poland in 2 weeks, a situation that can force ALL NATO cowards to leave and make peace with Russia.

NATO SPY

maybe you do not realise that all NATO is now sending to ukr is old junk and very , and i mean extremely very few modern weapons for testing purposes only. Try and go past Ukraine … see what NATO can do and what battalions of Abrams and Leopard 2 and Challengers can do . Also ,we do have a navy and an airforce, unlike 3rd world country Ukraine. Oh, an nukes also, did i mention those?

Anti Benedict Arnold

Yes, the country is run by an enormous gang who committed Treason against the legitimate President and all 18 intelligence agencies stood by and did nothing. That means they are COWARDS and afraid to defend their own Commander in Chief according to the LAW. Take your big talk and shove it right up your cowardly, treasonous ass you POS.

I, on the other hand, think that they are very careful to NOT provoke another Ukrainian situation, while at the same time posturing. They guess where the red lines of Russia are, and stop just an inch before reaching those red lines. If they really wanted to provoke another confrontation, they would start pouring weapons into Moldova NOW, not “over a longer period” (which will probably never come). Remember when the US asked Poland to send airplanes to Ukraine and Poland replied “fine, we ‘ll send them to your military base in Ramstein and you give then to the Ukies”? It all stopped there. I am pretty sure that if Russia declared that they will bomb arms convoys headed to Ukraine INSIDE Poland, the shipments would stop altogether.

Onward to Odessa and get this nonsense finished. Russia needs to stop fighting sitting down with one arm tied behind its back. Crush the abomination of Natostan before the entire continent is a mushroom farm.

Problem is the leaders of all these countries are lining their own pockets and in bed with the nato zio mafia Nobody really cares about Ukraine you feel sorry for some of their people which also includes the donbass people who are being killed for 14 years by their own army on the orders of zelensky and poroshenko Most of the western public are also being brainwashed by their own governments and not hearing the truth Any objective argument or comments are being deleted by the bbc in England and no dissent is allowed

Stupid move by a bought off stupid dual citizen bitch in Moldova. Transnistria , once it hooks up with Russia and Crimea will turn around and tell Moldova to get their shit together – stay neutral – or get destroyed.

Did you hear that Parisians? 40 million euros to help Moldavia arm itself, while your streets are a dumping ground for ‘refugee’s and their left behind waste. Paris is a dangerous dump and Macron is giving your hard earned to all and sundry abroad.

The people of Moldova need to get a grip before their ‘leader’ loses his. Toadying to the west won’t do the country any favours. But perhaps favours isn’t the game for Moldovan ‘leaders’? Perhaps the real game is filling their pockets with US and nato bribes, chucking their people under the nato bus whilst they are at it.

I guess whilst Russia is obliterating Moldova, warmonger central in washingtub and London will be saved.

Last time I checked, Moldova has an army of about 5000 soldiers. 4o millions worth of lethal military equipment won’t make the difference in case of the worst scenario. Maia Sandu is a WEF young leader with her head buried in the sand.
