No text today, just a fun picture of some handicrafts from the 2018 Chisinau Day celebrations in Moldova.
After all the panic over maybe, kinda, sorta Russian “interference” in the upcoming Moldovan elections, you’d think a story like Romania interfering in Moldova’s elections would be huge news. But it wasn’t, of course, because it didn’t involve Russia.
In the “old days,” all three were part of the Soviet Union’s power grid, specifically what is now called the IPS or the Единая энергетическая система.
What this effectively means is that all three countries’ energy systems (both natural gas and electricity) are still hooked up together although operated separately.
The Republic of Moldova is heading towards a pivotal parliamentary elections come the end of February, and so of course, too, are the propaganda outlets busy with their usual brand of scaremongering and made-up horseshit.
Your biggest gripe is about the condition of the roads in Romania which are never fast enough or good enough. In your mind, development is identical to building roads. And the ultimate goal for the country is to “increase prosperity.” To that end, foreign investment, the IMF, World Bank, EU, and America are all “agents of good.”
