What’s the difference between a “real” Nazi and a Romanian in Pridnestrovie spewing anti-Semitic stuff in public and consistently using the Holocaust name for the place where she lives?
Instead of me constantly talking about Pridnestrovie, I thought it worthwhile to let all of you see the country.
Pridnestrovie is a peaceful, multicultural society where all the different groups get along and have a generally positive attitude towards one another. That’s the official finding of the United Nations.
I certainly like Pridnestrovie. But maybe I’m crazy. Maybe I’m weird. Maybe I’m a total idiot who doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Honestly, it mostly makes me laugh (but it also makes me a bit angry) when I read clickbait shit like Russia Perfecting Its Elections Interference Toolkit in Moldova.
The headline sets you up to hear about some really dastardly deeds being perpetrated by Russia, but the jock who wrote this sadly fails to deliver.
Let’s call this one partially mythologized.
While it is technically true that Pridnestrovie has money that’s made out of plastic, what they’ve created is actually pretty amazing.
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.
