I’m praying that Sergei Yuko’s death will be the last to stem from the 1990s conflict, but there’s no telling how many generations the hate will last.
All blame for what happened in 1990-1992 during the brief “war” between the Republic of Moldova and Pridnestrovie is now placed at the feet of Russia, which is not just overly simplistic but factually wrong.
If you had told me when I was a kid that one day I’d be living in the Soviet Union, dancing to Moldovan music on TV, I would’ve thought you were crazy.
If you feel intimidated by Pridnestrovie, you really need to give your balls a tug.
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?
